Working replica of Dr. Light's capsule is so boss

Most of the pieces on display at the Mega Man Boss Tribute art show running all month at San Francisco's Gauntlet Gallery are of the 2D drawn / painted variety. But the X series incarnation of the good Dr. Thomas Light was represented in a rather novel format.

Andrew Butterworth decided to make a 3D replica of Light's hologram capsule and have an actual "hologram" appear within. The "hologram" is nothing more than an After Effects animation projected against transparent glass, but the effect is nonetheless impressive.

Andrew claims that attendees will notice an Easter egg hidden in the animation loop that would be familiar to hardcore Mega Man X players. My money is on Light's Ryu costume!

Well, my Monday is off to a good start. Yours will be too, if you liked Paul Robertson's Taito-style pixel art series. It continues with another hundred characters, viewable below. Without a doubt, my favorite this time around is the Cacodemon from Doom. It looks so friendly! Who's yours? 100 Taito style sprites part 3 [Paul Robertson]more

Farts 'N' Crafts: Watch Dogs Vs. Mortal Kombat Vs. Garfield

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...more

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more
