[(Almost) every month we post a new art assignment for the Dtoid community. Fun! You have until Wednesday, October 31st to finish this month's project, which is detailed at the end of the post!]
First of all, please forgive the tardiness of this month's post! PAX threw off my schedule at the beginning of the month, and by the time I got around to posting this it made more sense to just wait until October. Apologize!
Now that that's out of the way, on to business! For August's Artists Wanted assignment, we asked you to think about what it meant to be a videogame BOSS. Four of you accepted the challenge, so let's take a look at what you came up with!
First out the gate this month was an Artists Wanted mainstay, Roberto Plankton, with his three pieces entitled "A Boss is a Boss is a Boss. Boss":
What an epic dook! Thanks for sharing, Roberto! (Click here to see his other two entries!)
Next up for August was Anaugi with "Ridley Can Do a Sick-ass Kickflip, Yo":
"Nothing" indeed! Thanks, Anaugi!
Next out the gate was Panzadolphin56 with his piece, entitled "Learning the Tools of the Trade":
Hilarious stuff, Panza! (Bonus game: see if you can identify all the bosses in the pic!)
And finally, our last entry for August was MeanderBot's piece, titled "Middle Management":
Poor Kraid :'( Thanks, MeanderBot! (Click here to view a bonus alternate ending!)
And that's it for August! What an awesome month! Thanks to everyone who contributed!
And now, October's assignment. For this month, I'd like you to dream up your ideal videogame CROSSOVER. Would you like to battle the Covenant alongside Master Chief wielding Mega Man's Blaster? Wanna see how Kirby would fare versus the Left 4 Dead zombies? Wonder how Soap and Price would handle a Koopa Troopa invasion? Draw whatever you'd like; it doesn't have to make sense! (The only rule is, no drawing existing crossover IPs!)
To see your art appear on the front page, simply write a Community Blog and title it "CROSSOVER: [Title]". In the blog, post your art and a bit about the process that went into making it. Then at the end of the month, we'll gather them all up and put them on the front page!
