Video Games in Japanese Ink Wash (Sumi e) Art Style

Zelda

Deviant art user MyCKs seems to specialize in Japanese Ink Wash Art or “Sumi e” I’ve included a few here as an example but it’s worth going to their page to check out their portfolio they are stunning.

You can buy prints from his/her Etsy page.

Game of Thrones Characters as 80s/90s Kids

GAME OF THRONES 80/90s ERA CHARACTERS - Jon Snow Art Print
Jon Snow

These images by Mike Wrobel imagine what the cast of Game of Thrones would look like if the series was set in the 80s or 90s rather than an another world which is vaguely based on our history’s war of the roses.

Some of them are spot on, like Ayria for example, I’m also intrigued by his swapping of Daenarys’ dragons for ferrets…

How To Draw Boobies! NSFW

This “guide” by (@meghanhetrick) Megan Hetrick was I assume created out of frustration of horny male artists not being able to draw actual normal breasts.

In her words:

SO. Being a woman who’s been “graced” (i use that loosely) with being generously endowed, one of my biggest peeves in the art world is that of improperly drawn boobies. Now i’m not knocking anyone’s knockers in particular, but if you’re trying to draw NATURAL boobies folks, pornos and nudie mags are NOT your best reference sources.

Again, that all goes out the door if that’s the look you’re trying for. But, this is for the folks who want the real thing.

For other references, here’s a good place to start: [link]

The rest of her art is mostly safe for work and pretty good, it looks like she’s leaving DA so here is her website.

Pipe Cleaner Okami Sculpture

Made entirely out of pipe cleaners by ~afiriti on deviantART this is quite cool, there are a number of other pipe cleaner wolves on their deviant art page, it’s like their whole life has been leading up to this moment. Where will they go from here?

Short film: Malaria

Malaria from Edson Oda on Vimeo.

Edson Oda has created this quite clever short about a bounty hunter paid to kill death. I love the animation, the art style, the music, pretty much everything about this.

This isn’t Edson’s first animation of this type his VImeo page also has this video called “The Writer” which was created for Quenetin Tarantino’s Emerging Artist Contest to promote the film Django Unchained.

Cat + Coffee = CATCCINO? Apparently We Can Do 3D Coffee Art Now

I saw this on I Love Coffee which is apparently the blog of Ryoko who happens to be the Girlfriend of Matther Inman the guy behind The Oatmeal.

I like coffee art more than I like coffe, but I’ve never seen 3 dimensional coffee art! Turns out it’s quite common…

Modern Myths

Today’s Shirt Woot t-shirt re-imagines the legend of Zelda in the art style commonly found on ancient Greek pottery.

I find this oddly apt given Link’s predilection with smashing pots.
