This Saturday-stroll Samus is Manuel ‘schattenkino‘ Kilger’s submission to Girls: Fact and Fiction, an exhibition put together by Minneapolis gallery Light Grey Art Lab, featuring “100+ illustrators and designers who have portrayed their favorite women, heroines, and inspirations.”
Kilger’s Samus is available as a print here, or as part of an exhibition catalog of all the submissions here, where you can also find prints of the rest of the show. Find more of Kilger’s work at his portfolio site.
A trademark slender & serene version of Capcom stalwart Mega Man by Melbourne street artist Ghostpatrol, who you may remember from one of this site’s last best art gallery posts from its former life as Offworld.
Like much of Ghostpatrol’s recent output, it’s available as a very limited Gocco print direct from the artist, where you can also find a bunch of other prints, risograph books & more. See more of his output here.
The process is best documented by the fantastic (and super spoiler heavy) Fez Notes blog from many months back (my own notes reached up to six, dense pages). (via TigTumblr, who also spotlighted this amazing ‘A Fez Odyssee’ illustration)
Only four remain of this ultra limited edition (of ten!) print run by Andy ‘oktotally‘ Helms, featuring a semi-#sworcery-ish assortment of Metal Gear Solid 3‘s antagonists, which also comes with a bonus larger print of any of the panels you prefer.
Scroll back through the local Helms archives and watch it stretch back full circle to his original Snake Eater sketches from 2009, and visit his oktotally tumblr for more fantastic stuff both pixel & non.
Frequently-featured artist Daniel Bressette’s latest (and awesomely starkest) latest is this kaiju-esque Metroid T-shirt, now available through Fangamer, and described as follows: “Civilizations crumble as the King of the Parasites descends from the skies! Behold the fell majesty, the speechless terror, the black fear from the depths of space: PARASITO.”
The eagle-eyed will note that not only does Venus Patrol designer Cory Schmitz make a guest appearance, but also chipscene regulars Anamanaguchi (“in someone’s living room”), my Wild Rumpus cohorts from this year’s Wild Rumpus/One Life Left/Venus Patrol GDC party, and David Mauro’s “Babycastles no Fukushuu: Manhattan Fury” & Hilary Florido’s “Codependent No Moe” custom-painted arcade cabinets for NYC game-event group Babycastles.
As before, this is the last weekend to make a difference in bringing all of the Sportsfriends games to a wider audience: donate to the campaign at Kickstarter.
Artist, game-maker and our own resident TIGSource DevLog editor Dominique ‘Dom2D‘ Ferland does faux-anaglyph justice to Sportsfriends, the previously-featured four-game ultra-collection of local-multiplayer greatness, including Johann Sebastian Joust, BaraBariBall, Hokra and Super Pole Riders.
Pretty much the adorablest tribute to one of the best mini-games in the already-incredibly-adorable Rhythm Heaven Fever — the last, greatest swan-song game Nintendo created for the Wii — from Cucumber Quest artist Gigi D.G.
Mt. Triforce, a tribute by the previously-featured “8 Bit Dreams” artist Campbell Whyte depicting Legend of Zelda‘s “collecting of the wooden sword, the meeting that begins the entire quest of the hero”.
