[Every month we post a new art assignment for the Dtoid community. Fun! You have until Friday, August 31st to finish this month's project, which is detailed at the end of the post!]
For July's Artists Wanted assignment, we asked you to take your favorite videogame characters and completely flip them on their heads in a bit of a ROLE REVERSAL. What if Kratos was the god of love instead of the god of growling and bodypaint? What if Sonic and Tails were eaten by giant hot dogs? What if Peach was into hardcore BDSM?
Wait, some of those don't sound right. Oh well, I'm sure it's nothing. Keep reading to see some totally non-disturbing examples of ART!
Our first submission this month is "Chili Dogs" by ZombiePlatypus. Here's what he had to say about this artistic piece of artsy art that he arted with his art tools:
As if a chili dog could ever catch Sonic. Thanks, ZP!
Next up is "Beast of Burden" by MeanderBot. Here's a bit about his creative process:
Finally, justice is served. Thanks, MeanderBot!
Our next submission is "Pik-People" by shaxam1029. Here's what he had to say about his piece:
That's the stuff nightmares are made of. Thanks, shaxam1029!
Next up for July is "Peach Fiction: Bring out the Gumba" by Roberto Plankton. Here's what he had to say about the new background image on my phone:
There was more to it than that, but that line pretty much summed it up. Thanks, Roberto Plankton!
The next few artists didn't have much to say about their work, but that doesn't make them any less deserving of recognition!
"Top Percentage" by Anaugi. (I don't even play Pokémon and I thought this was hilarious!)
"Wrenchon Freeman" by RainbowSan. (Thanks for answering my call to arms!)
"Kratos, the God of Love" by Driesty. (Thanks for the free header!)
And finally, "Shadow of Man" by Calibre53. (SO. AWESOME!)
What an awesome month! Thanks to everyone who contributed!
And now, onto August. For this month, I'd like you to think about what it means to be a BOSS in the world of videogames. Often, the word "boss" is used as a synonym for "villain"; but does it have to be?
I won't say any more for fear of leading you down a certain line of thinking. As always, let your mind go wild!
To see your art appear on the front page, simply write a Community Blog and title it "BOSS: [Title]". In the blog, post your art and a bit about the process that went into making it. At the end of the month we'll gather them all up and put them on the front page!
I can't wait to see what you people come up with this time around. Now go create something!
Welcome to another edition of Dtoid's Friday Night Fights! So... do any of you Friday Night Fighters have anything positive to say about the Xbox One? Anyone? I'm seriously looking for some glimmer of hope in this bummer of a...more
