[Every month we post a new art assignment for the Dtoid community. Fun! You have until this Thursday, July 5th to finish your BEHIND CLOSED DOORS projects (detailed at the end of this post). On Friday, I'll assign a new topic!]
In case you've forgotten, last month's Artists Wanted assignment was TRUE NATURE. Your goal was to explore the essence of a videogame or its characters in hopes of discovering a deeper meaning or hidden reality. We received four submissions on the topic, and they were all FANTASTIC!
Our first submission for the month was "Ganon's Fortress" by Timothy Kelly. Here's what he had to say about his work:
Enjoy we did, Timothy!
Next up is "Samus' Identity" by Siete KeKe. Here's what he said about his work:
Thanks for the submission!
Next, we have "Olimar the Terrible" by MeanderBot. Here's what he had to say about his art:
Awesome and creepy, MeanderBot!
Finally, we have "Memories of Star Road" by Edco, my personal favorite for the month. Here's what he had to say about his piece:
Don't worry, Mario, I'm sure your princess is just in another castle.
And that's it for May's submissions! Awesome, awesome job everyone! (Be sure to click on each of the artists' names above for more info about what went into their creative process!)
Now, onto this month. June's assignment is BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. What goes on behind the scenes in a videogame? What exists outside the game's boundaries? Let your mind go wild!
To see your art appear on the front page, simply write a Community Blog and title it "Behind Closed Doors: [Title]". Then just 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 get creating!
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

Jordan and I have started a new game in our Couch Campaign, and it's one that I have been excited to play since we first began talking about the project. As a huge fan of the Fallout franchise and a lover of top-down, exploration shoot-em-up games, the pairing of the two could have been glorious. And Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is, provided you think train wrecks can be glorious.more
