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:
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!
The next entry for the month was "Marichu" by noobspoon. Here's what he had to say about his art:
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:
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:
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!
I'll admit, when EA Sports' Andrew Wilson took to the stage during Microsoft's Xbox One reveal, I tuned out. If memory serves, I used the opportunity to take a much needed trip to the bathroom because I was certain there would be nothing there to hold my interest. I was wrong. Hopefully, it's not too late for us.more
I have a confession to make: I'm terrible. Here in the Dtoid offices I have two jobs. One of those is driving wheelbarrows full of money down the aisles. The other is TF2sday posts. Sadly(!) we have waaaaaaay too many wheelba...more
The highly anticipated reveal of the next Xbox, Xbox One, has just come to a close, and I find myself sitting here thinking back a few months to Sony's own reveal of the PlayStation 4. The two shows couldn't be more different...more
