The DOOM Eternal Samurai Slayer Lithograph is a portrait of a lone warrior in a sea of fearsome creatures. Inspired by traditional Japanese woodcut prints called musha-e or “warrior pictures”, it imagines the DOOM Slayer in samurai armor with intricate geometric patterns. His helmet is a blend of its original shape and visor with elements of a samurai’s kabuto: a pair of horns that bend backward, ear-like projections emerging from the sides, and a half mask with a beastly nose and mouth. In his hand is a super shotgun adorned with the image of a mythical being. On his back, he carries a pair of swords. Though he is the subject of the artwork, the DOOM Slayer is not in the foreground of the composition. That honor belongs to Daisy, his beloved pet rabbit. The two of them are depicted to have matching koi tattoos.
Created by painter and tattoo artist David Koenig, this piece features graceful lines, intricate details, and a few carefully-chosen colors to honor the tradition that inspired it: artworks that immortalized legendary warriors and their greatest battles. The DOOM Eternal Samurai Slayer Lithograph is a limited production of only 400 individually-numbered prints.
