Duke Nukem - Poster by Cybopath Duke Nukem - Poster by Cybopath
Poster I've done for the very first Duke Nukem game, which was a plat-former. I've tried to incorporate updated aspects of the game, Duke is very much the Duke design from Duke3D but I've given him his original purple vest. You can also see Dukes original nemesis Dr. Proton, long before he encountered Aliens.

The poster design is a homage to B-Movie painted posters and old school 80's game cartridges.

(UPDATE)
I know Duke didn't have sunglasses in Duke 1 but I also don't give a flying monkey because that has become a trademark of the character, he didn't have a cigar or a large sexual appetite, take steroids or swear.

"So you are the Earth's champion? Pathetic. You have no chance of defeating me."

Clearly based on DN game 1 episode 1. I recognise the enemies in there including Doctor Proton, but Duke's weapon is wrong. He had a nuclear pistol in all 3 eps of game 1. But here he's holding a shotgun.

Next time try to get all the facts right about what you are making a painting of, or else the painting won't make sense.

Better luck next time.

The character design clearly took a quantum-leap between 2 and 3D and I pretty much explained that underneath, saying it's the Duke3D character design in the Duke Nukum setting. Duke also had a head the same size as his body in the first platformer, I didn't feel the need to incorporate that.
