I love video games. I've played them for as long as I can remember, and despite what your cable news networks might like you to believe, I think it's made me a better person. A million different titles from a thousand different studios from a hundred different countries mean that a lot of ideas get thrown on the collective table. They have inspired me, and in doing so, have made me a better artist.
Three days ago, I tasked myself with proving it with the following criteria;
1. List your favorite childhood, 16-bit era games.
2. Narrow the list to six (a well rounded number).
3. Interpret the games on the list artistically and uniquely.
4. Do not repeat artistic styles between the six pieces.
The results are as follow. Good, bad, ugly.
GALSIA GETS LEARNED - Streets of Rage 2
SHOOTING STARS - Gunstar Heroes
MVP - Mutant League Football
THE WORM (RE)TURNS - Earthworm Jim
STAMPEDE! - Sunset Riders
I'M A DOCTOR - Sonic the Hedgehog

Well, I was curious if I could do a promotional poster for something. I sort of don't like how this came out, and will probably do a follow-up, but it I spent too much time on it just to leave it on my hard drive. Oh wells.
