When you look at a piece of art, whether in a live gallery or online, how long do you spend appreciating each it? I bet you usually take one quick glance, pass judgment, then move on to the next momentary distraction. It's easy to forget that art can take a really, really, really long time.
Aria Blarg from Ariablarg+Friends likes to do videogame art commissions, ranging from $80 to $400 depending on the size of the canvas. As an added bonus, she films herself painting the pieces and uploads time-lapse videos of the whole process. The vids run around four minutes in length, condensed down from who knows how many hours. I bet dollars to donuts that would-be artists doodling something for the first wouldn't even last two minutes before the frustration that they aren't Bob Ross sets in.
Anyway, the above is Aria's EarthBound number, based on the coffee break scene in Saturn Valley. Marvel as the characters come to life before your very eyes. Afterwards, check out some of Aria's other speed paintings past the jump.
