Artists Wanted: 'Crossover' recap and your next topic!

The Dtoid community art project

[Every month we post a new art assignment for the Dtoid community. Fun! You have until Friday, November 30th to finish this month's project, which is detailed at the end of the post!]

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's... Marichu?

Six of you submitted your dream videogame CROSSOVERS for scrutiny this month, and six of you knocked it out of the park! Hit the jump to see all the wonderful Artists Wanted projects for October!

Our first entry for the month was "Mario X Siren" by Panzadolphin56. Here's what he had to say about his nightmare-inducing work:

Mario always sounds so goddamn chipper all the time in his games, for no apparent reason. It bugs me; nobody's that happy -- at least, not without medication. 

The only way I could really think of to break somebody like that was to put him in a psychological horror game, and force him to brutally murder his friends and family over and over again until he can solve a series of unrelated, unexplained puzzles that make little or no sense without a walkthrough. 

Yeah... he'll break, eventually.

I think we all just broke a little, Panza.

Next up (and far less creepy) was "Celebration vs Progression" by OLYJNS. OLYJNS wrote up an absolutely wonderful blog to go along with the art you see above and no single caption can do it justice, so click here to read the whole thing!

Thanks, OLYJNS!

The next entry for the month was "Marichu" by noobspoon. Here's what he had to say about his art:

Mario's Tanooki suit; what more could Pikachu ask for?

I've been playing Mario Kart 7 a lot and I love how they brought the Tanooki suit over to the Mario Kart series, so I decided since Pokemon Black and White 2 are on the horizon I'd do a homage to both titles in one. I mean, who doesn't like Mario and Pokemon?

Serial killers like Panza up there, that's who. Nice work!

Next up was Roberto Plankton with his entry, "Follow the Rainbow". Like OLYJNS, Roberto wrote up an awesome blog describing his dream crossover and love of co-op games in general. Click here to check out the whole thing!

Nice work as always, Roberto!

Up next is "Super Man World" by Anaugi. Here's a bit about the piece:

It was a really easy idea and it may have been done before, but maybe not. It's ridiculous to see Superman riding on Yoshi because of how impractical it is.

Ridiculous? Yes. Fantastic? Also yes! Thanks, Anaugi!

October's last submission was "Katamari Effect" by Iacopo Donati. Here are some thoughts about this awesome art:

When thinking about a crossover the hardest thing was finding two IPs that had at least something in common AND that were funny when put together.

I couldn't get any inspiration, when suddenly it dawned on me. The perfect match: two great harvesters of helpless sentients uniting their powers towards a greater purpose; both aiming at making something greater from the flesh of lesser beings trough destruction and resurrection in a different shape; both serving a tyrannical paragon of their kind that refers to himself with majestic plural. 

It was then that I knew that the Prince of All Cosmos and the Reapers were born to be together. 

Holy shit that's brilliant. Awesome job, Iacopo!

And that's it for October! What an awesome month; thanks to everyone who contributed!

----------

Next, November's assignment. For this month, I'd like you to create your own SELF PORTRAIT in the style of your favorite videogame! You can doodle yourself in all your 8-bit glory in the style of Mega Man, with full HD stubble and a half-tucked shirt as a character in Uncharted, or anything in between! This one's all about sharing yourself with the community; not only what you look like, but your taste in games as well!

To see your art appear on the front page, simply write a community blog and title it SELF PORTRAIT: [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!

Have fun!

Hey, I here theres some premium blog o' mine just lying around the cblogs right now. Should go pick it up, while its still in stock-which is limited due to artificial scarcity. Also for favorite personas, I am also a big fan of samael. Cool design.

SMT demons, huh? There's really only one choice.

One of my favourite demons from SMT is Samael, his death magic and Megido spell are always a great help( Megido especially made him the bane of golden hands in my last P4 playthrough). Plus he looks pretty badass.
FakePlasticTree avatarFakePlasticTree
Favorite demon in Shin Megami Tensei, eh? Oh, I got many but so I'll just pick one for now whom is a beast in the Persona series. Yoshitsune--Hassou Tobi, Heat Riser = Don't fear the REAPER!

Played half an hour of Last Story. Yay, British voices! But the absence of colours makes me want to play other games instead, especially in this greyscale season.

There's not even enough reviews out to give Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth a rating on Metacritic...what's up with this?
