This Is Fan Art

With the increasing availability of art creation applications like Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter, fans of gaming art have become able to take many of the same tools of creation that the real-life games creators use and make their own versions of popular characters – which are often every bit as good as the real thing.

Whether it's simple fan-fuelled line and crayon drawings of Shadow and Amy getting hitched; sexed-up wish-fulfillment pieces of Chun-Li or Lara Croft in very little clothing; or huge and expansive Photoshop-rendered scenes mirroring the plush landscapes of the Final Fantasy games, there seems to be something irresistible about taking an existing body of work and adding your own unique slant – however simple or sophisticated they may be.

Wow, that's some hardcore stuff.

The Metroid one is amazing.

The Metroid one is awesome. Just saved it and have it as my desktop background.

The Sonic and Metroid look great. They need to make those into HD remakes (well Wii isn't HD so a good looking remake). I always thought they need to make more classic game into HD versions.

Metroid and sonic is just TOOO PRO! Someone need to hire these guys, especially for sonic team.....omg sonic games would be much better with that guy.

I like the Metroid one even has a focal point so the the plants closest to the camera are blurred.

I got the GTA one as my background. That's just AWESOME! I feel the same way as Patrick Brown (2nd guy interviewed)

"If I love something like a TV show, film or game, I’ll draw it. It’s like my inspiration. I’m a HUGE gamer and get really hooked on the big titles. Then I get this craving to make artwork out of it."

I'm an ok guitarist, and my artistic skills are ok, but that's only on paper. I have little skills with digital apps and that's where the trend seems to be going.

One day I'll learn. I just got a huge inspiration from looking at that GTA one!

I also am using the gta is simply sick

cb4g3431d ago

They should use the Sonic one for future games. That looks awesome compared to new 3D ones

Saaking3431d ago

Completely agree. I hope they take it back to it's 2d roots with the next title. Anyways, all of those drawings were amazing. My favorite one is the metroid one.

i feel like i should just give up drawing stick figures. I know i've hit the glass cieling and it just feels pointless. Why must people have such talent!
