Third contest results: Villains

September’s contest was titled Villains.  It was simple, open and easy to do. Illustrate a villain from any video game past or present, win a free game call it a day. I won’t say who illustrated each entry this time, I will simply post the entries. I will announce the winner on Friday 10/3/2008. Thanks to all who entered! 

No explanation really needed here. Everyone in gaming knows this villainous family from the mario universe. Not to be confused with Bowser Jr, this is the Koopa Family! 

This is a Glukkon from the Oddworld universe.

Glukkons are the ruthless, heartless capitalists that are the management of the Magog Cartel, the achetypal industrial family with a stronghold on Mudos.

This is Vodka Drunkenski from the old school game Super punch out (not to be confused with punch out and Mike Tyson’s punch out!) 


This is the Earth Knight – Gaius – Terrestris Veritas – Mammal guardian 2 from Shadow of  the Colossus! What a great game! 

There you have it! I will announce the winning illustration on Friday! The winner will receive free game of their choice!


October’s Contest (since halloween is approaching) is to draw, paint, vector, or simply “Art” a monster/creature from a video game. It could be any video game, but the creepier the better. Monsters and creatures could range from anyone like the Nemesis in Resident Evil, the Locust or really any villain from Gears of War, to a character from Devil may Cry. (also Ninja Gaiden had some crazy monsters/creatures in there!)  

So the theme is monsters/creatures and the creepier the better! Hope to see some more entries! Think about it…November has some really cool games coming out! Who here wouldn’t want Gears of War 2 or Left 4 Dead for Free?  What about Fable 2????

    I’ve not heard of ‘Shadow of the Collossus’ before, however it really is an awesome piece of art. The villain alone looks very cool, however the detail on the armour and the choice of colours are superb.

    kudos to that artist, whoever it may be.

    Oh man, what a tough decision. Love them all. Love the Shadow Of the Colossus piece, the artist got the scale of the villain just right. The Koopa piece stands out a lot to me too, though.

    Shadow of the Colossus is one of the few games considered by many to be complete Masterpiece in every sense of the word. I highly recommend it.

    Oh, I definitely love the Shadow of the Colossus piece, it’s a great game too, but I’m kinda leaning more towards the Koopa fam….can’t wait to hear who the winner is!
