All Your Art Are Belong To Us

Sometimes I have to take a break from cartooning and make serious art. Of course I use the term "serious" loosely, and if we're being entirely honest here, the same probably applies to the term "art." Nevertheless, on occasion I feel the need to break out the paints and do something different just to keep the creative juices flowing. It nurtures the soul. It's my release.

This weekend's release manifested itself in the form of derpy videogame characters, because even when I'm making very serious art I can't seem to be very serious about it.

01games

Once upon a time I was a great fan of the Zelda series, but somewhere around the turn of the century my interest wavered. I blame Navi. In fact, I blame Navi for most things that go wrong in my life.

02games

Peach was always top dog, but my heart belonged to Daisy. I feel like she had a dark side, you know? She was a little kinky, maybe. Peach was so vanilla.

03games

Samus was my hero as a kid, even after I found out he was a chick. I remember one Halloween I tried to make power armor out of cardboard, but I ran out of materials halfway through and went as a cowboy instead (for like the 4th time in a row).

I quit my job last week to focus on blogging full time, and while I'd like to say this will translate into lots more stories for my readers, I'm afraid I might end up utilizing my newfound freedom to catch up on videogames.

I'm just kidding. I'm almost done with a new comic!

Just... have to... finish... this... boss.

In the meantime, all of these paintings are available as prints in the portrait store!

(thanks, now I won't starve to death.)

  5. Wonderful! You should submit your video game related art to http://iam8bit.com/ - I think what they're doing in the art circles is so awesome. Daisy has always been my favorite too.

  9. Hey Adam! I'm practicing drawing and have always wanted to try watercolor. Did you use actual watercolor paint or was this done digitally? Looks amazing either way.

  21. YAY MORE COMICS! I quit my job last week as well, you know, "to focus on my degree in illustration". What that really means is "be a climbing bum and stop working all together till I get tired of funemployment".

    ReplyDelete
  22. So how DO you quit a job for full time blogging? I've only ever considered blogging a past time which is funny for others to read. How does that make enough money to keep you suitably wealthy?

    ReplyDelete
  23. So excited that you're going to do this full time!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I know you can do it, i really do, but it'd still be nice if i could have proof you can actually draw someone in a flattering light for once

  25. Peach's boobs make me think she should have worn a sports bra while racing around Wario's Stadium if you get me
