"Left 4 Dead" (2009)

In mere weeks, Left 4 Dead fans will be getting fully acquainted with the new cast of rescue-seeking Survivors. It probably won't be a final farewell to Louis, Francis, Bill and Zoey, however their time as the franchise stars is certainly ending. Here's my tribute to the best zombie video game EVAR.


"The Vault-Dweller" (2009)

I created this Fallout 3 portrait primarily to keep myself from playing the game so much. I've logged about 150 hours in two playthroughs and I'm waiting to download Broken Steel to start my third.

"The Phantom Hourglass" (2007)

I finished my latest game illustration just a few days ago. I loved Zelda on the DS so much I abandoned it for two weeks just to geek out on this. Now that I've picked it back up (just killed the two-headed ice dragon bos...


"Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" (2003)
