I first created this image back in 2008 after watching a GomTV match featuring Nick ‘Tasteless’ Plott as the commentator of the eSports battle. It was Averatec-Intel Classic Season 1, Never vs Shuttle Game 2 at the two minute mark when a probe became an unexpected warrior. Quite impressed with the probe’s performance Tasteless exclaimed, “That probe probably has Tattoos and piercings he’s so badass”.
As a fun exercise I decided to find a screen shot of one of the greatest 2d side scrolling games ever made, Castlevania SotN. Eventually I’d like to create an entire HD remix of the screen shot as a fun wallpaper background. For now, I’m going to try and go through piece by piece as a study.
It is customary for websites to have error pages that are somewhat fun. Its frustrating when things break on the internet, so if we are hit with something that makes us smile, it is a bit easier to let go the frustration in running into a glitch.
This is a little fan art piece I created in honor of the Idra vs Jinro Starcraft 2 GSL battle. I enjoy the player’s personas, and so sparked this image in my mind. Feel free to check out the speedpainting, and sketches below!
This was another practice of listening to a specific song on repeat the entire time that I work on a piece. The track is then used for the background music in the speedpainting. The hope is that the piece really reflects something in the music, and it forces a lot of creativity from me even when I might not feel the most creative.
I put this song my brother made on repeat until I had a decent digital sketch. Then I uploaded the speed painting along with the song. This was about four hours of work.
A new series of speed painting videos called, "Pixel Interpretations" show me rendering out game pixel-ized images producing an outcome of how I imagine the subject to be.
The following are all Interpretations of Castlevania 3’s Intro sequence.
