Gifts for Gamers

I started creating video game art on a whim. I felt that I had been taking my subject matter too seriously. By painting something I considered fun, and something that had already been pre designed, I could just let myself play. It’s been almost three years since my first geek culture inspired piece. Now, prints of these watercolors are my best selling creations. If you’re interested in picking up a few prints of your own, visit my Etsy shop. I’m offering free shipping until Decmeber 17th, 2012. Just use coupon code FREESHIP at check out.

Here are a few of my most recent nerd excursions. The Cammy piece won the Etsy Gamers Game of the Month Challenge for November 2012.

I’m including this last photo to illustrate how small these video game inspired works are as originals. The prints are 5″ x 7″.

Commissioned Cait Sith

This watercolor and ink painting was a commission. Before you get all fan boy at me, this is a FFXI Cait Sith, not a FFVII Cait Sith. Bring it.

Star Wars Themed Dr. Sketchy’s

I haven’t updated in over a month, which is some sort of awful record. I won’t give excuses. Sometimes life just gets in the way of art.

Last Friday was May the 4th Be With You. There was a Star War’s themed Dr. Sketchy’s at Smithville’s The Underground. Our stellar models were Roxanne Mass and Sam East (aka Samantha Star).  Unfortunately, a glass of water was spilled, ruining some of my better pieces from the night. Here are some of the surviving paintings:

 

Level Up Entertainment

Painted this depiction of Rydia from Final Fantasy IV as a commission. She is highly influenced by Amano’s original character design. Prints are available in my Etsy shop.

Also, prints of many of my gaming themed paintings (including Rydia of Myst) are now available at Level Up Entertainment in the Hamilton Mall.

First Person Shooter

The Etsy Gamers’ game of the month this May is Bioshock. They seem to be on a first person shooter kick, which is OK by me. The following ACEO is of a Little Sister and  Big Daddy. It is hard not to think of the under water city Rapture as a horrific steam punk version of Oz. I had fun playing with the art deco arches of the game.  This Big Daddy’s name is Toto.


Not in Kansas Anymore. Ink, watercolor, and paper. 2.5″x3.5″ (6.4cmx8.9cm).
