The Dtoid community art project
[Every month or so we post a new art assignment for the Dtoid community. Fun! Here's a recap of the latest. You have until Thursday, January 31st to finish your next project, which is detailed at the end of the post!]
Eight brave Dtoiders exposed their sexy faces to the world for our latest Artists Wanted topic, SELF PORTRAIT, and they all looked amazing! From Mega Man to Jet Set Radio to Dynasty Warriors to Alan Wake, everyone's portrait was unique and the stories behind them were all incredibly fun to read!
Hit the jump to bask in their glory!
First up is Anaugi, who gave us two fantastic creations! The first was "Round 1 Fight", which you see above. Here's what he had to say about the piece:
And here's a bit about the second, titled "Megaman Powers":
Awesome x2! Thanks, Anaugi!
Next up is KeithTheGeek with his piece, "I Want to Battle!". Here's a bit about his art:
Looks great to me! Thanks, KeithTheGeek!
Our next artist is anglorum, with his piece titled "Jet Set Radio Pooture". Here's what he had to say about it:
No no, thank YOU, anglorum!
Up next is myherozero with his piece, "Get Weapon". Here's what he had to say about his art:
Fantastic story and art! Thanks, myherozero!
Next we have Roberto Plankton, who gave us three awesome pieces! First up is "Me Moia" (above), followed by "The Hive":
And finally, "It's Gonna Work Because I'm Pushin' it Right":
Check out his blog to find out more about each piece! Beautiful work as always, Roberto Plankton!
Our next artist is our own Kyle MacGregor with his portrait titled "Hyakuretsu Kyaku". Here's a snippet about his work:
If you can manage to do this pretty quickly, I can only imagine what you can do when you take your time! Thanks, Kyle! (Be sure to check out his blog for more info, as well as a few bonus pics.)
Next up is rubenf with the piece you see above, in which he becomes Alan Wake and fights Mr. Scratch! Here's a bit about his work:
Cool stuff! Thanks, rubenf!
Finally, we have the illustrious BeatBeat, who shared the glorious piece you see above and took the opportunity to introduce himself properly to the community. Welcome aboard, and thanks for all the great art!
And that's it for this edition! Thanks to everyone who contributed!
For your next assignment, I want you to create something inspired by WINTER. Videogames take advantage of the cold and dark of winter in many different ways; some have you slip-sliding around whimsically in a penguin suit, while others force you to fight the limited visibility and jump scares brought on by blistering blizzard conditions. Do you have a favorite videogame "winter" moment? Draw it!
To see your art appear on the front page, simply write a community blog and title it WINTER: [Your Blog's Title]. In the blog, post your art and a bit about the process that went into making it; then we'll gather them all up and put them on the front page!
Have fun! Can't wait to see what you all come up with this time around!
I'd like to pay Richard Hofmeier to talk to me about videogames. During last week's Sup Holmes (now on iTunes), he told me about so many great things, like the free online "game" Geoguessr, surrealist interactive text auteur...more
Here's today's formerly-live Destructoid Show, on which I wear a bad shirt again. Nintendo had one of their little Nintendo Direct press conference thingies this morning, and a bunch of news came out of that. They're also d...more
Welcome to another edition of Dtoid's Friday Night Fights! May is a notoriously slow month for videogame releases, which means it's the perfect month to dig out and dust off that old multiplayer game you haven't played in mon...more
