Very nice, isn't it? Olly Moss showed off this classy Last of Us print from Comic-Con, done in collaboration with Jay Shaw. I highly suggest clicking Shaw's linked name and visiting a huge collection of wonderful posters. Give your eyes a treat.
Paul Robertson delivers, again
Well, my Monday is off to a good start. Yours will be too, if you liked Paul Robertson's Taito-style pixel art series. It continues with another hundred characters, viewable below.
Without a doubt, my favorite this time around is the Cacodemon from Doom. It looks so friendly!

This is an extra weird one
Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...
Paul Robertson delivers
Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best.
Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...
Fetch me a literjon of vodka, Dandelion! This lozenge has curdled my tongue.
This week, I stop mucking around with condiments, pasta, and watercolors and just do a good old-fashioned drawing. The subject? Geralt of Rivia, The White Wolf, star of The Witcher books and games.
While drawing, I'm asked stupid questions by Bill Zoeker, who doesn't know anything about Witchers. Also, we eat very sour candies.
Art out your desktop
Every now and again we like to dump a collection of gaming related wallpapers for you. Why? Well, why not? It's the weekend, and now is a good as time as any to change up your aging desktop wallpaper.
The collection in the ga...
And it's all the better for it
This week was the big blowout for Sunset Overdrive, the next game from Ratchet & Clank developer Insomniac and one of the major Xbox One exclusives at this point in time. Given Sunset's colorful nature and the studio's co...
Using a Varia-ed Suite of condiments
Because you demanded it, dear viewers, this week Max is doing some amazing Samus Aran fan-art using condiments and macaroni. My god this show is idiotic.
Vadu Amka's Red and Blue design
I hadn't connected the dots until now, but artist Vadu Amka is responsible for a number of cool custom game system projects I've seen online, some more practical than others.
This latest one, a Pokemon-themed Game Boy, makes ...
Today for Farts 'N' Crafts, I got a little artsier than usual, and decided to "dabble" in watercolor to draw a fairly hot topic: a certain Japanese robot of the Gundam variety. Probably not my best, but watercolor, mecha, and talking at the same time are kind of tricky.
Back to basics
Sorry for the delay! Here's this week's episode of Farts 'N' Crafts, in which I draw something I've drawn rather compulsively since I was ten years old -- Boba Fett. Also, I show off some of the pictures you guys drew of Pokémon and Call of Duty!
Game Boy Camera? I hardly even know her!
Christine Love (Analogue: A Hate Story) was making an FMV game and decided that it wasn't fun, but the development tools were. Because of this insight, we can all take 2 bit selfies for days. I wonder how long before my browser's built in spell check accepts "selfies."
Yes, you. Do it. Though I don't know if you can beat Holmes and Love.
In an effort to make myself relevant to teenagers everywhere, today's episode of Farts 'N' Crafts combines Pokémon and Call of Duty: Ghosts.Am I relevant now, teens? Hm? *Puts on Kanye West™shutter-shades*

Honk if you hate geese
Here's this week's Farts 'N' Crafts! I'm a little burnt-out following GDC, so today's topic involves children attacking a goose with a broom. If you'd like to hang this on your wall, you can buy a print here. If you'd like to make your own picture of kids fighting a geese, go right ahead and drop it in the comments here, or shoot me an email.
Someone's got to
If you're counting the game's original Japanese release, it's Super Metroid's 20th birthday today!
As much as I'd be content to mope around given that Nintendo isn't doing much to please series fans right now, we should inste...
GDC cocktail napkin edition
Hey gang! Here's a hot and messy GDC edition of Farts 'N' Crafts, brought to you by liquor and cocktail napkins, and also cocktails, made with liquor. Sonic The Hedgehog is covered in bandages and scarves in Sonic Boom, so I drew him barfing up SpaghettiOs. Because cocktails.
Today on Fart's 'N' Crafts, I'm drawing Godzilla and Big Boss fighting! Or hanging out. Or something. This suggestion comes by way of Nicholas Layne on YouTube, thanks Nick!
If you'd like to buy a print of this drawing, you can pick one up right here!
I want to wad the Katamari Damacy print up into my life
We've shown off Jed Henry's Japanese woodblock renditions of game characters before. I'm still in love with that original Samus one. But Henry's catalog is growing, to my wallet's growing concern.

It is also a game, too
At first glance, Leave None Behind might not seem like an entirely new idea. It aims to be a puzzle platformer, featuring three characters with distinct abilities that the player can switch between in order to progress, a la...
It is too big to show you in full
Artist Edgar Recinos put together an art jam wherein a couple hundred artists each picked a Final Fantasy character to draw. Recinos then did the painstaking work of aligning and numerically ordering over 200 characters in an...
Hey everybody! Here's the second episode of Farts 'N' Crafts, the show where I draw pictures of stuff related to what's going on in gaming. Today, there's a lot of buzz about a new Batman game from Rocksteady, and Titanfall ...
My mom's gonna hang this on the fridge.
Following up Friday's debut of "Dumb Idiot Ideas," here's the first episode of another weekly series: "Farts 'N' Crafts."
On this show, I draw horrible pictures of things vaguely related to what's going on in the world of vid...

[Here's part two of Dtoid Cblogger AboveUp's fun new MS Paint project for the community! --Mr Andy Dixon]
Two weeks ago I asked the people of Destructoid to open up MS Paint and draw their favorite game covers. I have to say, you guys are amazing! Like seriously, this is a thing we should do more often!
In fact... let's do round 2 right now!
See if you can guess the games!
Warlords of Draenor
I may not play World of Warcraft but as someone who occasionally writes about it and, as a result, has to find not-terrible-looking images to accompany my words, I'm all for a good character model redesign. Blizzard has share...

So much tape
Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Dr. Eggman all just got a major redesign for the new Sonic Boom game. It sure is ... something. Artist Andrew Dickman imagines what Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Peach would look like if they got the same redesign treatment too.
There's been some hilarious reactions to what Sega has done with the Sonic franchise all over the net. Post your favorites in the comments below.
The Omega Sword and Elk Shield, together again
I've been following the work of Volpin Props for years and haven't lost interest yet. The end result is frequently terrific, sure, but it's the step-by-step photos and explanations of the building process that keep me coming ...
I quite like the Wicked Eye Greatshield
From Software is incorporating the six winning community-made shield designs from that contest into Dark Souls II and here's a look at two of them all finished up. How seamless.
