Farts 'N' Crafts: a Lil' Gundam photo
Farts 'N' Crafts: a Lil' Gundam
by Max Scoville

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.

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

Interstellar Selfie Station is what happens when you keep the best part of a scrapped project

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?

Farts 'N' Crafts: Teens fighting an Angry, Flappy Bird

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.

Let's celebrate 20 years of Super Metroid with fan art

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...

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.

More beautiful game-inspired woodblock prints you can buy

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. Shadow of the Colossus, Fina...

Leave None Behind wants to celebrate many forms of art

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...

Fan art poster of over 200 Final Fantasy characters is AMAZING

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 continues to be great, as demonstrated by this adorable trailer and these leaked maps and screenshots, which reveal that there are alien dinosaurs in the game. Aren't video games grand?

Farts N Crafts: Duke Nukem's Turdy Dogfight
by Max Scoville



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 video games. Today's subject is the recent news of Gearbox Software's lawsuit against Interceptor Entertainment and 3D Realms over Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, but more specifically on a comment made by Destructoid community member Red Morgan.

Got ideas for another stupid thing for me to draw? Leave it in the comments.

Destructoid: MS Paint Edition! Round 2: More game covers!

[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!

The new female Orc for WoW puts the old design to shame

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...
