Get your Nintendo (and non-Nintendo) fan art here

Fan art alert! Artist Zac Gorman has a web page dedicated just to Nintendo fan art, and it's pretty incredible. His animated comics are particularly stunning. As his style is a little on the cartoony side, you might expect his work to have a more lighthearted bent, but there' plenty of heavy drama here, peppered with some autobiographical and editorial stuff too. For instance, Mr Gorman doesn't seem too impressed Nintendo's recent redesign of Pit from Kid Icarus, and when it comes to the Wii U, he's more excited by the idea of a new Earthbound game than a new controller. He's a man after my own heart.

On the other side of the fan-art spectrum, we have the latest project by Destructoid alumni Ashley Davis. Entitled No Mario's Allowed!, her new site is all about putting lesser known game characters in the spotlight. So far she's covered Hudson favorites Bomberman, Bonk, and Master Higgins. It's a fitting partial eulogy for the company, who's loss of an American branch was one of the gaming industry's worst causalities of 2011.

I'll be keeping a close eye on both of these blogs, as they are both updated on a regular basis. Fans of quality fan art would do well to bookmark them both.
