Dang, even paintings are now able to run Doom.

u/AzraelleWormser Dec 07 '21

Yeah but the framerate is terrible

u/DaveRuinsArt Dec 07 '21

This made me snort laugh.

u/DuplexFields Dec 07 '21

Not on Hogwarts paintings.

u/R-El_Mayor Dec 07 '21

Aren't those just gifs?

1

u/DuplexFields Dec 07 '21

They're interactive like ghosts, and can even travel from painting to painting like Splatter Phoenix and Darkwing Duck.

Like the Chapman Brothers did to those Francisco Goya paintings.

u/interior-space Dec 07 '21

I remember when they were first shown. People did lose their minds. They really were the best at winding people up.

Afaik the painting wasn't considered anything special before that thing happened

u/Fr31l0ck Dec 07 '21

Yeah, because it was terribly damaged. A damaged original is more valuable than a crappy attempt at a copy on top of a damaged original. However, the damaged original would have bottom of the barrel interest in the art market.

u/bomli Dec 07 '21

Wasn't that the irony of the self-destrucing Banksy painting? He tried to comment on the absurdity of paying a huge amount of money for a painting by destroying it straight after the auction, but the failed half-shredding inadvertently raised the value even more.

2

u/IrrelevantLeprechaun Dec 07 '21

Let's be real; even if it had successfully shredded the entire thing, they would have still sold the shredded pieces for millions anyway. The value isn't in the physical object; it's in the historical significance.

There is astronomical value in owning literally the only self-shredded Banksy artwork in existence.

Besides, I doubt the shredder "failure" was an accident. Probably designed it to only shred halfway, not to mention I'm sure the auction had some questions as to why the thing was so bulky.

1

u/Fr31l0ck Dec 08 '21

Yeah I bet he brought it up with the auctioneer trying to say that they could turn it into 40 original works of art rather than one. They likely came back saying we can't do that to our customers that would drag our name through the mud but you can still destroy it as long as it's a single unit when you're done.

The once-dignified portrait now resembles a crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic.

When you’re a journalist, that’s the sort of sentence that comes around once in a lifetime… If you’re lucky.

1

u/patters98 Dec 06 '21

Exactly what I was thinking

1

u/SayerofNothing Dec 07 '21

Exactly, I was thinking this. Every now and then a lost masterpiece, a Van Gogh, for example, appears in an attic, why not a thrift shop, and then painted over with Fortnite characters. Everyone would lose their collective shit.

u/xH0LLYW000Dx Dec 06 '21

Thats actually really nice! But shouldn't the surroundings be on fire since its doom?

23

u/DaveRuinsArt Dec 06 '21

Lol yeah probably!

10

u/xH0LLYW000Dx Dec 06 '21

Still looks great, guess this is before shit gets crazy...

12

u/CollectorsEditionVG Dec 06 '21

This is where Doomguy and Daisy used to go on picnics. It must remain unspoiled and sacred.

5

u/xH0LLYW000Dx Dec 06 '21

That or doomguy was hunting when the demons showed up! Should throw in the dog from duck hunt with a few ducks 🤣

2

u/rensmt Dec 06 '21

Tbf, I like that it’s the violence and ridiculous demon imagery of Doom combined with a relatively serene landscape. Looks a lot more interesting that way.

3

u/KommandoKodiak Dec 06 '21 edited Dec 06 '21

remember all those times people found rare and expensive art at thrift stores

1

u/KommandoKodiak Dec 06 '21

will you be selling this?

1

u/Redspades_XIII Dec 07 '21

Dave ruins his parents dreams

u/kasesadilla7 Dec 07 '21

Omg do you sell these haha I love this

u/CommercialBiscotti29 Dec 06 '21

If you squint your eyes it looks like the trees are on fire

u/xH0LLYW000Dx Dec 06 '21

Yeah they do 😅

3

u/DuplexFields Dec 07 '21

Not every square foot of Earth is cities.

But now I'm going to dream of a version of OpenMW, the free Morrowind engine, that has support for Oblivion levels but instead of daedra has random spawning of Doom monsters.

The sad reality that I remember that after 30 years....

u/DuplexFields Dec 07 '21

The sad reality is, I still type IDDQD in my dreams when I'm in danger.

1

u/Extension-Clue-3416 Dec 09 '21

I just use idclip, much easier

1

u/Underweargnome666 Dec 09 '21

Idclip didn't exist in doom 1

1

u/Extension-Clue-3416 Dec 10 '21

Well It works in gzdoom, I never played the original without source ports

u/SergeantSlapNuts Dec 07 '21

For those wanting him to take your money, I have good news for you!

I've ordered several Star Wars prints from Dave. They're great quality and frame very well.

1

u/RageTiger Dec 07 '21

That's pretty awesome collection in there. Loved the "Are these the druids you are looking for" and the one that has the collection of 80s and 90s characters on it. . . VOLTRON

*gets blown up by crazy doomguy*

u/Braydee7 Dec 06 '21

Sometimes I think I don't get art. Then I see something that speaks to me.

u/mackinator3 Dec 06 '21

Now this is something I'd consider buying.

u/Lonely_Parsnip Dec 06 '21

Awesome picture, awesome idea! LOL. Good one.

I’ll buy it

u/ospfpacket Dec 06 '21

Shut up and take my money!

u/thornofnight Dec 06 '21

Deep down, the Doom was already there. You just made it visible. Also, This looks like a delightful hobby!

u/TheGoldenGod1812 Dec 06 '21

Damn that's cool. Do you have stuff for sale anywhere at all? Sort of thing I'd love in my house

2

u/echocomplex Dec 06 '21

Cool and well done!

2

u/jiminy_cricks Dec 06 '21

Brilliant idea!

u/KJHerk8 Dec 06 '21

My mind goes to Riftin in Skyrim when i see that painting for some reason.

2

u/PaleRiderHD Dec 06 '21

Knee deep in the dead

u/THE_GR8_MIKE Dec 06 '21

It looks like a duck holding an illustrated screenshot of Doom.

2

u/HolyErr0r Dec 06 '21

This looks brilliant

u/buddwizard Dec 06 '21

I like this style. If you ever think of doing this on the regular and selling them let me know.

u/L-Skylurker Dec 06 '21

This is great!

u/posananer Dec 06 '21

I love seeing these. Where people put pop culture into paintings. It makes me wish I had any artistic talent

2

u/developmentalchess18 Dec 06 '21

It's so good that the doom things look like they were photoshoped in, it looks great!!

2

u/Weary-Trouble-5618 Dec 06 '21

You selling that?

2

u/ElimGarak Dec 06 '21

Who else immediately heard Doom sound effects and music when looking at the painting?

2

u/Pobaxi Dec 06 '21

might be funny if the painting was an actual Bob Ross

2

u/Dietach41 Dec 06 '21

Can I commission you to do something similar if I find the right piece?

u/DaveRuinsArt Dec 07 '21

Message me in January.

r/TIHI when someone paints on someone else’s work. I know I’d cringe if someone did that to my work. You seem to have the skills why not just make your own painting instead?

u/j_vila1980 Dec 06 '21

This is so dope I’m stealing this idea. Ty 🥰

Tag me when you are done. I wanna see it.

When I build my house, this is the type of artwork I want on the walls.

u/XPC-Reaper Dec 06 '21

I'm not much for art... But I like this art

1

u/Zolo49 Dec 06 '21

Bob Ross should've done something like this to all his paintings after the cameras stopped rolling.

1

u/faxanidu Dec 06 '21

I do crap like this with goodwill paintings all the time lol

u/TappedIn2111 Dec 06 '21

Nice! My two favourite things combined! Gaming and not giving a fuck about the art of painting.

1

u/Ok_Cryptographer520 Dec 07 '21

(Slams fist on table) yes.

u/A_N_T Dec 06 '21

The original painting and frame look exactly like one that hung in my grandma's house when I was a little kid.

u/DaveRuinsArt Dec 06 '21

Plot twist, I am your grandfather!

1

u/antleonardi01 Dec 06 '21

I love it, but agree with many others that it needs a regular DOOM background instead of happy forest.

u/buffhawk84 Dec 07 '21

More like Davepwnsart! Epic!

u/NeinLivesThief Dec 07 '21

Why isn't this a mod?

Kill demons inside Bob Ross paintings to ensure their happiness. Sounds like a good time.

Pretty cool analog doom!

u/Underweargnome666 Dec 07 '21

Hey OP I must ask where the world do you reside? And where did you get the painting? It looks so similar to one my mum owned, or maybe even painted I'm not sure, we had heaps of artwork she painted around the house. Even the frame looks similar.

You might add +7 demon slaying power to it by putting a tiny voicebox with Gir singing the Doom Song behind the frame.

Honestly that looks like every painting my grandfather passed down.
