Doom: The Icon of Sin by Helios437 Doom: The Icon of Sin by Helios437
Whoa, you know those paintings that just take FOREVER?! Took me about a week! Been busy, and spent maybe 10-15 on it each time I sat down at my Wacom tablet. All up I probably spent 2-3 hours over the course of the week to finish it. 

So, it started off as a pic of the doom space marine with is gun. Then added the revenant and the mastermind (bit of in fighting going on there). Finally, I added the Icon of sin in the background, first just as a pretty basic cut and paste of the original wall textures, then decided 'Nah, Fuckit... Ima gunna give him a body!'. After a bit of perusing with google, I found some refrences from different mods and other fan art. In the end he kinda ended up like a giant baron but with spikey bits. I was thinking wings, but I kinda made it so he maybe had wings at one point, but they've either rotted off or have been torn off. either or. His stomach is kinda another mouth, with what I imagine is some kind of gateway into or out of hell? Now im really talkin out my arse...

Anyway, doom fans, enjoy!

Looks similar to the icon of sin in brutal doom starter pack.

I like to imagine the Icon of Sin as a gigantic demon who hasn't completely manifested yet

Always enjoy the Doom fan art. Cool to see a full-bodied Icon of Sin!

I'm sure you've heard of the "Ultimate Icon of Sin"?  I'm wondering... did you base this picture off of that mod, or did Sarge base his mod off of your drawing?

Mod came first. I saw an image of it off google and checked it out. Inspired me to do this pic.

Call it a coincidence if you may, but this picture is exactly how Icon of Sin would've looked if ID had the time and extra resources.  Remember the ending of Doom 2, how it said,

ITS THRASHING LIMBS
  DEVASTATING UNTOLD MILES OF HELL'S
  SURFACE.

That right there tells us that the boss would've been huge, but the limitations of ID's current hardware couldn't support it.  I remember reading that from an article somewhere.  Great picture!

They need to make a doom game where the icon of sin is this big,or bigger.

They kinda did, I found out after I did this, One of the pics I used as a reference was actually a mod made by the brutal doom guy (I think). I havent actually played it but it looks pretty similar to what Ive done here. And it looks bloody hard to beat too!

Perfectly balanced, near perfectly lit, the exaggerated poses truly do work for you.  I love it dear boy; may the Good Lord bless your hands as art blessed the ammo and weapons of our greatest paladin, Doom Guy.

Hey, I just want to say that I've been fawning over this picture for quite a long time. I just art-spewed a handful of deviations, among them is the trinity of gaming legends Master Chief, Samus Aran, and Doom Guy. In the comments I made reference to this picture, so fyi. 

Idk why I like the boxy, venetian blind mouth vent thing so much, but I really do.

I cant get over how awesome this is. and the body really fits what you would expect to see from him. the mechanical arm is perfect as with the wires on his face since in the game he appears almost to be on some sort of life support system.

thank you. I always thought the IOS looked like it was being held in place by all those pipes and wires, like a prisoner or something, but I guess it makes more sense the demons want to keep it alive. who knows what the fuck the demons are thinking half the time.

Since the release of Brutal Doom V.19, the Icon of Sin now has an actual body and is a lot more tougher to beat. www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWH_d7…
