The Pumpkin this Year

I told a kid he'd get an extra piece of candy if he could guess what game this character is from. After a long pause, he said, "Mario?" His dad thought it was Mr. Do. Dad gets points for at least knowing the name of an obscure game character.

Believe it or not kids, Final Fantasy 7 wasn't the first Final Fantasy game they made.

I gave the kid an extra piece of candy anyway.

Happy Halloween, everybody.

The Wind... It is blowing.

Our topic for the Avalanche Art Blog was The Legend of Zelda. And this was my doing! I've always felt like Zelda has been the most influential to me out of all the video games, so I didn't want to take this challenge lightly. That's why it took me such a long time.

A part of me wants to make MORE Zelda art... after all, there's still Ocarina of time, some of those classics from the NES and SNES, or maybe even a preemptive strike on Skyward Sword.

I always want to make more art than I have time for.

More Pumpkins

No, these were done at Halloween, not just recently.

Catching up...

I haven't posted here for a long time so, I'll try and put a little bit more art on this blog. Both of these are pictures made for the Avalanche Art Blog.

Here, the topic was "Trolls", so I drew my favorite troll, Danny Devito. You gotta pay the troll toll to get in.

For this one, the Topic was "Santa", so I reached deep down into my childhood memories to recall one of the many holiday movies attempting to attain that coveted perennial Christmas profitability. Rather than choose something by Rankin Bass, I went with Santa Claus: The Movie, a mid-80's affair that was only notable for its blandness and brief inclusion of Burgess Meredith (The Penguin!). OH... and also yet another incredible performance by the wonderful John Lithgow! I could watch this holiday turd over and over again just for the Lithgow parts. Santa never directly confronted Lithgow in the movie, but this is what I imagined their fight scene to look like.
