I’m a big fan of Campbell Whyte’s 8 Bit Dream series where he’s making small spot illustrations for every original NES game. He’s taking a bit off a break to work on a graphic novel project but posted this nice compilation of every illustration so far. A large assortment of the original art can be found on his Etsy shop.
Seaking by Claire Hummel - I think this one might be my new favorite. It has the most interesting composition I’ve seen so far, and I’m a sucker for negative space word balloons, tattoo girls, and wave patterns.
Primeape by Jake Wyatt - This art just floored me with it’s subtle textures and color palette. I’d love to see it printed out at a much larger scale and learn more about his coloring process.
This trailer blew me a way. The style and attention to detail is fantastic and the hand drawn animation has a life to it that you don’t see in 3D work. Learn more at their Kickstarter page. I hope it does well and we see more projects this lovingly crafted in the future.
Incidentally, the art style reminds me of this Dragon Age 2 concept art I saw a while back in Game Informer that is 100x better than anything you might see after it gets videogame-d. I remember thinking how amazing it would be if they could capture this feel in an actual game.
I’m a sucker for some good video mapped to 3d spaces. I think this tech could have amazing potential down the road when hooked up with something like Kinect, where it scans your room and starts projecting game elements into it.
