Introducing Artists Wanted, the community art project!

Remember that insanely awesome pixel art poster we showed you recently? Well that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to artistic talent within the Dtoid community. Realizing this, Jonathan Holmes came up with a fantastic idea that made the rest of us all slap our foreheads in unison: let's assign a monthly art project for the community! So starting in May, we'll be hosting a month-long call for submissions to make sure all you fledgling Bob Ross-types get the attention you so deserve!

For our first month, your assignment is TRUE NATURE. Create something that explores a videogame's (or videogame character's) true meaning -- its essence, if you will. Remember, this should be a personal interpretation! Go back and read the recent promoted blog by Captain Carrion. See how he explored the creepier side of Dig Dug and exposed it as a horror title? That's the sort of thing we're talking about!

To see your art appear on the front page, just write a Community Blog and title it "True Nature: [Title]"! Then just post your art (and a bit about the process that went into making it) and tag it with the "Artists Wanted" tag. 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. Now get creating!
