Fan Art Extravaganza part 1

Generally, the Internet is a heavily cynical place. People always seem to get some sort of twisted pleasure from digging up the worst and most disgusting pieces of crap the intertubes have to offer, all in the name of irony and e-penis enlargement. This is especially common on fan art websites. For this wonderful gem of a blog though, that kind of stuff just won't cut it. Let's be honest here: harshly criticizing a piece of Sonic the Hedgehog yaoi scribbled in MS Paint by a fat 12 year old girl is about as impressive as beating up an armless midget. For that reason, I chose to take a look at the lighter side of video game fan art and dig up some truly impressive, well drawn stuff.

Note that most of these were stolen from a fan art thread on a certain image board, so I honestly have no idea who most of the original artists are. If anyone does, be sure to drop a comment since proper credit *will* be given.

Let's get the ball rolling with a brilliant piece of Sonic the Hedgehog fan art. Yeah, that kind of stuff really does exist.












Thanks to some professional use of CG, perspective and an insane amount of detail, this piece definitely stands out. If only Sonic Team's own artists were this good.

SMASH BROS TIME.













Everything about this picture suggests that the artist certainly knows their shit. Just look at it, IT OOZES WITH STYLE.

And now for something completely different.













These people have truly done the impossible: they've taken Sonic CD's seemingly perfect opening and made it even more mind-blowingly awesome.

While on the subject of highly detailed paintings, have some amazing Shadow of the Colossus/ICO work.










By the way, if you haven't finished Shadow of the Colossus yet, you shouldn't have looked at this picture. WHOOPS.

Time for some wonderful Yume Nikki artwork, and by "wonderful" I mean "horribly scarring in an awesome sort of way". This IS Yume Nikki after all; I wouldn't have it any other way.





















To top it all off, a comic that will solidify your feces and warm your heart at the same time.

Yes, there will be a part 2.
