Nice artwork. Featured on Gamepro eh? Gamepro is pretty notorious for their artist Francis Mao. That guy has done some truly terrible art. Im amazed they hired him. Anyway, this guys is really really good. His style almost reminds me of Julie Bell.

FUNNYMAN said...

Amazing art. I can't wait for Assassin's Creed and Metal Gear Solid 4 to come out.

The Elderly said...

Hi phantasystar im going to check out Francis Mao, I hadn't heard of him, Julie Belle is something else..... glad you like it...

Hi funnyman, outside of Bioshock im looking forward to

MGS4, Assasin's creed, Too human, Huxley...

and when they get around to it, Silent Hill and Elderscrolls... it's easy keep me happy.. lol

Francis Mao has actually improved a lot over the years. I recall the horrid Street Fighter art he did back in the early 90s at Game Pro. His work used to be a running joke between my friends and I. In all fairness though, he did draw a decent Sonic back in Sega Visions years ago.

FUNNYMAN said...

What about Mass Effect? That game looks amazing also.

The Elderly said...

(elderly slap forehead with the palme of his hand....) damn yes Funnyman your quite right, completely forgot it.... looks like my social life is going to be on hold for a while...

Hi Phantasystar had a little route around the net... not for love or money can i find anything belonging to hime.. will have a better look later on... it's good to know he's gifted with hedgehogs though.. lol

gnome said...

Love the art and even more so the idea to have original artwork on magazine covers. Great post Mr Elderly!

FUNNYMAN said...

Did you draw all of these pictures by hand?

TheTimeRunner said...

I never really took light of the artists of such characters. There was only one and that was with GameFan Magazine. When that magazine died, my interest in cover art died with it...

Wonder Woman... The clues in the name isn't it? Wonder... Woman... Ah! the wonder of women! Hubba hubba!!! :)

The Elderly said...

(quickly hides gnomes magic wand....)why thank you Gnome.... (blushs) .....your too kind!

Funnyman if only I could draw a circle.. i'd die a happy man.... nto mine but the work of Roberto Campus.... sigh! still i can dream

They're pretty powerful, when i regularily bought game mags.. the cover was a big drawing point... considering the amount of magazines now vying for attention.. cover art especially great cover art.. is a major attraction..

Wonder woman... so she's not in a continous state of awe then...? damn thats a bit of a let down.... sigh!... hey did you bring us back a stick of rock perchance...?

fatherkrishna said...

Hands out rock... One for you Gnome, one for you Phantasystar, Funnyman, heres yours, Timerunner there's yours... *Whips out extra large pink one for Elderly*

There you go Elderly! What? You want some rock too? I think I've got another stick somewhere...

gnome said...

Ah thank you Father. It's lovely we're all back together, innit?

FUNNYMAN said...

It will be interesting to see who comes out on top? Assassin's Creed or Mass Effect. They both come out in November.

The Elderly said...

(chews on rock....) this ones soft FK... i'll take the other one...

(lays money down on Assasins creed square.....) my moneys on Assa.. oh sorry... i'm afraid Mass Effect may be Knights of the old republic with better graphics.. god i hope not though....

fatherkrishna said...

Oh sorry Elderly, I thought you said co... Oh never mind...

Gnome, it IS good to be back together isn't it?

I love you guys... :)

FUNNYMAN said...

I slightly agree with you The Elderly. I think Mass Effect will be a better game (I love science fiction), but I think Assassin's Creed will sell more copies. Only 360 owners will be able to play Mass Effect. Both 360 and PS 3 owners will be able to play Assassin's Creed. Mass Effect looks more like a 3rd person shooter than an RPG. I doubt Mass Effect will be like Star Wars. I hope Assassin's Creed is not like Prince of Persia.

The Elderly said...

...mr FK Gnome won't tell what the sound of a dying giraffe sounds like... but I bet you know

HI funnyman the episodic content on xboxlive has me worried, will we get a full game? like yourself Science fiction is my favourite genre as well, maybe im unconsciously playing mass effect down to avoid disapointment.. (crosses fingers)

(ignores giraffe comment)

Ah, happy days!

:)

The Elderly said...

(ignores Gnomes blatant Ignoring of the giraffe comment....)

oh hello Gnome, happy days indeed.....
