There can't be more than a year between MI2 and CMI, so 21 would make no sense.

Then he was probably nearly 20 in MI2.


Btw, I'm surprized so many estimate Guybrush a lot older than he actually is :P

He is in his late 20's in ToMI, he says in the first episode he has been having piratey adventures for the last decade, Making him about 27 or 28.

Monkey 1-4 could be included in that decade for all we know.

He actually makes a sarcastic joke in Tales about how people think he's younger than he actually is:

I'm not sure why he needed to use spoiler tags, but I had a lot of fun clicking those buttons just now.

these Guybrushes KILLED ME! If they remade MI2 in Curse style I think I'd die of happiness and then ressurect myself to play it... (Though not sure many would agree with me.) Still I'd be happy with a remake in the vein of SoMI... Or even just rescans of the original artwork for higher resolution would be fantastic!

I dont think he looks to young. I acctually think that guybrush from MI2 looks too old to fit his characters personality. But he is younger there than he is in TOMI and the one from TOMI has more charm to his look that MI2's guybrush.

I think MI2's Guybrush is the best Guybrush too, although I totally love TMI and CMI Guybrush too.

Nice work SyntheticGerbil. It looks like it came straight from a picture book.
What are the technique's you used?
I don't think he looks too old. Maybe just the hairs on his arms.
His face just looks like it's concentrating really hard.

Offtopic: People, in general, please stop double posting, it's really annoying, just edit your posts.

*EDIT: See, like this.

*EDIT: Or this.

SyntheticGerbil: Brilliant! I didn't realise you were an artist. I'm assuming it's digital; what program did you use?

Thanks guys for the nice words, I really do appreciate it. I do tend to make everyone old and haggard, though. Hah, oh well.

The technique was just a scanned pencil drawing cleaned up in Photoshop and painted with a wacom tablet.

I made the Elaine sort of how I would stylize here in her MI2 look, not really drawing from CMI or later for inspiration (or really the SMI closeups for the matter). So your mileage may vary on whether it really looks like her or not. Probably doesn't.

She's in a bikini though.


LeChuck from Mexico later tonight hopefully!

How come I've never seen your artwork before SynthGerbil? Shame on you for hiding you talents.

Not sure about the costume, seems a bit gratuitous for my tastes, but very impressive nonetheless.

Heh, looks fine to me, but then I'm something of an unwashed artistic heathen. Maybe we can play spot the difference if you upload a new version.
