I gotta say, the first Mad Max is my favorite of the series. Excellent tribute. Also love the tribute you did for The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly too. Great work. :D

Love It. It feels like Spaghetti-western/Sin City style movie poster. Great Job! And did you ever consider doing one about The Road Warrior/Mad Max 2.

I never really thought about doing one for The Road Warrior. I would but the first one has always been my personal favorite so that is why I turned this one out. It actually started when someone on deviant art asked me to do a portrait of the Toecutter alone. I said if I was going to draw Toecutter, I might as well do a Mad Max homage.

The first one I ever saw was the third one actually. In 1985, when I was 9 my parents took me to the drive-in to see a triple feature opening that night: Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and Pale Rider. I loved Thunderdome but as a young kid, THe Road Warrior had one of those reputations as being a violent/adult film. I remember thinking The Road Warrior was like some terrible horror film that I couldn't handle...lol. I didn't see Mad Max or Road Warrior until I was in high school I think and took a passion for the first film because I am a sucker for a great revenge film. Road Warrior's a great science fiction film and for me, Mad Max works as a dramatic action film as opposed to science fiction. I also love the spaghetti western aspect of Mad Max. The Toecutter and his gang reminded me of the gang in "A Fistful of Dollars"

It is usually overshadowed by it's sequel but I feel it's the better film.

I seen Road Warrior first .. then seen Mad Max later .. rented them from the video store ... and I will agree, that I to think it's the better of the three films.

I saw Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome first as part of a triple feature at the drive in in 1985 along with Pee Wee's Big Adventure and Pale Rider. Being only 9 at the time, I hadn't had the chance to see the previous films. I expected Road Warrior to be a lot more than it was--given it's reputation but I instantly fell in love with the original when I finally saw it. It reminded me of a western and I have just always liked stories about revenge and this one's a great one.

Oh I so miss going to a drive-in! ... Tons of fun! I just couldn't get much into MMBT ... Pale Rider is a :+fav: with me though! I tend to agree that Mad Max is the better film, although many things I :heart: about Road Warrior on the same note.

When I first watched Road Warrior I was psyched while the opening began. I was hoping the whole movie would be like the opening car chase but then Max falls in with those hippies in white and I got bored. I just remember hearing the title "Road Warrior" and imagining something much more exciting but the movie is only fun to me at the beginning and the end. Thunderdome had it's moments, but is obviously the weakest of the three. I think Mad Max was a little more simple and personal and that is why I liked it best. Max almost gets lost in the second film with all the other characters.

The undubbed version was so much better than the dubbed version. You don't often seen Max fan-art with Jim Go0se and Bubba Zenetti. :dance:

:wow: Awesome job!:w00t: This has gotta be the BEST piece of Mad Max fanart I've seen on this website!:nod:

You captured all the key characters, I also love how you caught Bubba Zenetti with his Mauser C96!:excited: Also, the perspective that looks up at Max's face when he handcuffs Johnny the Boy really gives it that authentic look of the film.

I love Jim Goose!:D

"Hey fella! You're a turkey, ya know that?!":XD:

Not only the Goose, but all those MFP patrolmen also!

I love the part at the beginning when Charlie and Roop are pursuing the Nightrider! "I'm gonna blow him away!"

It was really sad when Johnny the Boy killed the Goose!:(

And then, when Max had him, he was all whiny like a typical liberal punk, blaming his gangsta behavior on his psychotic "sickness." It seems that even in a post-epoxyclypse future, humankind is still plagued by liberal court systems that favor the criminal over the citizen.

:XD: Being "clinicly insane" is no excuse for burning a cop to death. Then those candy-ass judges who defended Johnny the Boy had the nerve to insult the Main Force Patrol and call the Goose a "cripple" and Charlie a "mute."

Max proved that vigilantism is the best way to answer crime.:nod::w00t:

Also, during the scene when Max and the Goose first encountered Johnny the Boy and that rape victim, you see Max pull out a really cool rugged old pump shotgun from their Interceptor, do you have any idea what kind of shotgun that was?:hmm: I thought it looked like an Ithaca with an extende barrel, but I'm not sure.^^;

I think it might have been an autoloader and I've often wondered what make and model it was, myself. The MFP needs rifles, that's for sure. In essence, Mad Max is basically a Western, even down to the sawed-off being a weapon of choice. :XD:

When I first saw it, I couldn't tell if it was an autoloader or a pump. The last time I watched Mad Max, I paused during that scene to get a close look at it, and it looked like the forearm could've been cycled, and I don't recall seeing any type of cocking bolt on the ejector port.:shrug: Perhaps it was an autoloader, the camera didn't get a good close up of it.^^;;)

You know, on the DVD Trivia bonus feature that can play during the film, it actually says that Mad Max was inspired by alot of classic American westerns, and uses all the same elements from them. Along with Max's sawed-off shotgun, the only pistols you see are just revolvers, save for Bubba's Mauser C96!:nod: (Max's revolver you see Sprogg playing with in one of the earlier scenes was identified as a Smith and Wesson model 53, what kind of cop would use a .22 for a sidearm?:XD:)

Mad Max also has alot of the same suspense techniques used in old horror movies.:w00t:

If only the wasteland was infested with zombies. That would justify a .22 because a .22 is a perfect zombie-killing weapon. I always thought Max's revolver was a .357.
