Introducing Artists Wanted, the community art project!

Introducing Artists Wanted, the community art project! photo



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!

Killer Instinct's Season 2 is off to a great start

Although it had a few issues in terms of content, Killer Instinct on Xbox One was actually a good game at launch. Since then, I've taken a look at both Spinal and Fulgore, and found them to be a great addition to the alr...more

Confessional: I make up my own stories for games

So here is a dumb thing I do: I make up my own stories in games. No, I'm not just talking about RPGs like Fallout or Skyrim where the entire point is to go out and make your own mark on the world. I'm talking about just about...more
