And one more dose of AJ Hateley’s Dishonored art, this time the wispy, brushy spectre of Dishonored‘s Corvo, both well spotted over the weekend by one of the game’s writers, novelist Austin Grossman, and both already available in print or card form from Hateley’s Redbubble store.
Posted here as a tribute to How I Spent My Weekend, and not just because it’s super gorgeous, the frequently-featured AJ Hateley posts this illustration (which I’d happily sit straight next to the best work Ashley Wood did for Metal Gear) of The Outsider from Arkane’s Dishonored, still totally my top pick for big-budget game of the year (neck & neck with Dragon’s Dogma).
Another piece for the Fangamer VERSUS Attract Mode art show, Mare Odomo‘s more autobiographical ‘DS Club‘ piece illustrates a time where “we spent our lunches playing Mario Kart, having math battles in Brain Age, and pictochatting the things that teenagers pictochat. It was the best.”
The piece is available in limited and limited-er print sizes via Fangamer here, along with more Odomo-related goodness here, and some previously-featured work by Venus Patrol Kickstarter T-shirt artist Mikko Walamies here.
Says Courtney of his piece “Thy Next Foe is…” for the recent Fangamer VERSUS Attract Mode art show, “making a game that’s just sixteen boss fights in a row sounds like the work of a madman. Turning it into one of the greatest games of all time is the work of a genius.”
The piece, along with many several others, is now available as a limited edition print from Fangamer here, with much more of Courtney’s illustrations ready to dig through via his portfolio site here.
Both are posted here today for reasons that will become evident in not too long now…
The first of two fantastic illustrations by James Harvey that feature the main characters of Noah Sasso’s brilliant indie sports/party game BaraBariBall (most recently featured at GameCity’s Venus Patrol Training Facility), following, explains Harvey, a chance meeting with Sasso in Brooklyn’s Barcade this past summer.
Metroid fan art for an unfortunately long-passed iam8bit art show (meaning prints, presumably, are long-gone) by Barnaby ‘somefield‘ Ward, creator of the super essential (and now apparently exceedingly rare?) dreamscape comic Sixteen Miles to Merricks, much of which you can (thankfully) still read online here.

One of those duties they never really tell you about when you sign up to be a Pokemon trainer, an illustration by the previously-featured artist Rachel Morris of Scraggy, one of the game’s most mis-fitted monsters.
As usual, you can (& should) buy a number of Morris’s amazing pieces for the NYU Game Center via Society 6.
One more dose of Timothy ‘TurnisLeftHome‘ Reynold’s low poly excellence, this time a soft focused Martian landscape. You can find a ton more of Reynold’s work both at his portfolio site and dribble, and find a number of his pieces available as prints at Society6, including this one.
Like the previously featured Geo-A-Day and Brendan Zabarauskas, some crazy beautiful and evocative low-poly amazingness from Timothy ‘TurnisLeftHome‘ Reynolds, here taken from a mega-list of his isometric experiments which includes a number of gorgeous subtle animated work.
