I believe someone mentioned previously - quite correctly - that one really should not bring a knife to a gun fight. So true.

But perhaps this character lives in the world of Woo and who the heck knows who else, where he can defend himself by cutting bullets in half as they speed toward his unprotected head...

...or maybe he's just on his way to the Melting Pot. ;-)

=====================

Found these whilst working on something else and dang but if there aren't a bunch of them. We'll just keep it to the ones of rolling about on the floor tonight. More soon.

These were originally done as part of a request for the very talented `yrindale, a cat who messes around with light and shadow to incredible effect. Check out his gallery, wonderful stuff.

** Crazy-Ass Pose Disclaimer **

Almost every picture in this series makes no sense what-so-ever from the perspective of 'realism' - however you may chose to define that term. Whether it's weapon handling, movement, or just about anything else; if you see someone doing any of the things depicted in this series in real life chances are pretty good that person is about to die. Luckily, this is art. :D

Remember "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels"

Guns for show, knife for a pro.

This guy is probably like Leon/The Professional. Guns to take out the body guards, the knife is for the big boss...

Kinda makes me think of the whole MGS3 thing.

Big boss said sometimes when you get up close in a gun fight, a knife can be more effective.

Actually my take is this... (inner monologue of Jade) "Now, he said to do this quietly.... but when do I ever do things quietly...."

Surf, read the freakin' disclaimer! You're spending too much time out at Groom Lake. The top secret alien tech beams are making your brain go mushy. ;-) :D

Shadow puppets can be downright creepy!

Wait... maybe that was clowns. Well, definitely clowns, but maybe ALSO shadow puppets. :P

It was embarrassing: he could never remember if it was "never bring a knife to a gun fight", or was it "never bring a gun to a knife fight".

He always thought this little bit of Emily Post etiquette was strange, so he took a more Martha Stewart attitude: bring both, and make sure you bring the biggest frigging knife and gun to the party you could.

That's what Martha would do, anyway.

...then Martha would have taken care of BUSINESS! And then she would have just a little time before getting out early for good behavior (and good hygiene).
