Arty Awesomeness

Amazing Game Art

Deviantart user, Orioto, has put some absolutely incredible art up. Taking inspiration from most of the games we played as kids (and still dream about today, I’m sure), he’s created wallpapers of the likes of Mario, Sonic, and even Donkey Kong.

Man, I really hope some game designers are seeing this. Imagine playing games that look like this. I instantly think of Braid, and its wonderful visuals.

You can download the high resolution versions of these images, and many more, from Orioto’s Deviantart account. When I say “high resolution”, I’m not kidding; That Mario image is 5000px wide!

Thanks Orioto!

Amazing Dream Worlds

I like to think I go to fantasy realms in my sleep, but it’s usually to the MacDonalds on all-you-can-eat day, or to a clothing store where everyone actually pays attention to me. Other people, however, have more vivid locations in mind, and with the help of Photoshop, they can bring these lands to life.

A few more fantasy landscapes lie after the jump.
