The Mighty King Altador by aquanut The Mighty King Altador by aquanut
Neopets Art Gallery, Page 1438
Art Gallery trophy #30

It so happened that Lupe Day was right after the Thor movie came to theaters last year, and the Protectors of Altador have always been my favorite Neopets site charactersÖ hence this.

All right, all right, I changed/fixed this so much that I guess itís a stretch to call this the same image that got into the gallery. Most notably, I made it much more obvious that this is a parody of this Thor movie posterÖ mostly because of the addition of the type on the bottom, but I also punched up the colors to make it more appropriately epic. (Iím not sure I would have been able to get into the Art Gallery with a parody this blatant, and Iím still trying to figure out whether I actually got in because TNT caught the reference or because they missed it.)

:D I wasn't familiar with the Thor poster, but this felt particularly epic! I really like the way you shaded it!

Thank you, Komori, I'm really glad you like it! :D The shading was a lot of fun to do, so I'm glad that stood out to you.

Haha, I have to wonder whether anyone was actually familiar with that poster, because at the time I grabbed it off Google Images without looking to see if it was a well-known one or not... and then after no one got the reference, I finally had to explain it here. xD;

Hehe, thank you! I did have a lot of fun working the colors of the poster into this and finding a way to balance them while keeping the Neopets design intact.

I love how it looks like a movie poster!! I bet it'd be epic, and maybe something like 300 or Clash of the Titans lol

At first I thought it was for the Altador Cup, I don't exactly know why. But it looks awesome! Personally I still like Thor over this poster, because, well...Thor is hot. Especially in that poster. :heart: But putting fangirlness aside, this is a very cool poster. c: I love what you did. The shading is cool, the lighting is not confusing (to me at least), and it just looks...awesome. o3o Awesome job. c:

Maybe because the Altador Cup is starting soon; it's probably on everyone's minds. :P This might make a decent recruitment banner for Altador though, come to think of it.

Hehe, well, I wasn't trying to compete with the original; Thor will always be the official mythological Avenger. But thank you for all the nice comments, I'm glad you like how this came out! =)

Yeah, but I will always be for Team Darigan. Always-always.

Well, even if you weren't trying to compete with the original, I still wanted to evaluate the two. =P You're welcome. ^^

Congrats again on the entry!!! I think TNT would've, like me, assumed it would be like, a propaganda poster (for the Altador Cup?)? I dunno, but I suddenly want to support Altador. And I'm a loyal every-year-the-same-team person! D: Cuz this poster's just awesome. I like it better than the Thor poster, actually, but I'm biased (slightly) against Marvel and for Neo. ^^' It's really good though, I like the little bokeh (for the lack of a better term) effect below Altador there and the whole bg is awesome-sauce. Great job!

Thank you! Well, the version that actually got in didn't have the text on the bottom, so they might've also just thought it was a portrait of Altador. I'm glad you like it; it's neat to know that it actually makes you want to support Altador in spite of your loyalty. (I'm a loyal supporter of Kiko Lake myself--it's a matter of hometown pride.) I'm glad you like the background blur effect, thanks! That was pretty much the result of my trying to represent the cloud textures in the official poster in a more flat/cartoonish way.
