Had a rough night. Just drawing for fun here. Bella Lugosi’s Dracula is one of my favorite horror movies. Thought I’d show some Drac’ love. Finished it right before the sun came up interestingly enough. Still trying to hit the right marks and make a really solid piece. Haven’t been able to do that in awhile. Instead I’m whipping out these mediocre pieces. Like I said…rough night.
I drew this tonight. It was hand drawn for the most part. Except for the background and colors. That’s Photoshop. I was in a ninja mood. I was going to draw a dead cowboy. Then I thought of Skull Cowboy. Then I thought of the deleted scenes from The Crow of Skull Cowboy. Then I thought of Brandon Lee. Then I thought of Bruce Lee. Then I thought of Kung Fu. Then I thought of Ninjas.
And then I did this. That’s really all there is to it.
So I finally got around to playing Super Mario Galaxy and got a ‘lil idea. I’m a retro gamer and since I adore the classic Mario games I figured why not design some cabinet art as if Super Mario Galaxy was made in the late 80’s as an arcade game.
So I came up with this:
I looked at the old Mario Bros arcade cabinet side art for inspiration. Just flat colors. Simple shapes.
I even did this for fun:
So you’re 12 years old. It’s Friday afternoon and you’re in your local arcade with a fist full of quarters.Would you play this game?
Been on a Mario binge lately. I can’t get enough of that chubby little plumber.
Also for those interested there’s a couple new Zen Arcade Strips up at the Tumblr. It’s all going somewhere trust me. We’re going to get a few more strips down and launch a nice clean looking site to host them.
In other news there could be a big change to the website in the coming week. I feel that I’m pretty close to getting a career position that I’ve been wanting. If I get it…I’m turning heel. I’m switching up this sites look and I’m going to drop some pipebombs. Stay tuned.
