Baby I’m back!!!

I know it’s been a while… what, like two years or so… but that is how life goes sometimes… I don’t have time for playing games like I used to… but I want to get back into doing more interviews with artist in the industry and posting about some great games soon…

I have been more an artist who digs games lately… but believe me I am still a gamer who digs art at heart.

Here are some samples of the works I have done in the game area… as you can see there has been a big progression over the time.

Monday Challenges!!!

I for one am excited to see the resurgence of the Monday Art Challenges here on Gamersdigart.com. They have come a long way, and as an artist it has given me a reason to stay active with sketching away at some great video game art.

I look forward to seeing all the new entries on a weekly basis and love how random people will drop a sketch or illustration into the challenge.  Every week or so a member from the site selects a new topic and by that monday the following week everyone post their take on that challenge…Left 4 Dead is next on our hit list and you will soon see some sketches in the forums that reflect this.  Here is break down so to speak on ALL the challenges and the entries to ever appear on this site…

Big thanks to all who have contributed to the Monday Challenges!  For anyone who wants to contribute to the future challenges we look for new art.  That is the point of the challenge; to create NEW art before the week’s deadline.  Enjoy!

To participate in the current challenge (left 4 Dead series click here!

Gamerspot Light ~Left 4 Dead

Games are classified as great for many different reasons.  Some are good because the graphics engine used is the new industry standard (Uncharted 2) others are good because of what they do for a genre (Mass Effect 2) while some are great because they let you play with friends (Halo Series).  Left 4 Dead is a great series because it takes 2 things gamers love and combines them…co-op gameplay with Zombie killing!

Even on paper the game sounds like a recipe for for success.  The game relies heavily on cooperative action.  Let a zombie killing player get too cocky and stray from the group he will become zombie fodder for a  smoker.  The enemies of the game can attack you if they get the slip on you, and unlike most games, there is no offensive attack you can personally do to get them off you…you will need the aid of your mates.

The sequel was equally as fun with new characters and new challenges.  So what’s better than 2 awesome titles that includes 2 sets of four memorable characters?  Crafting a story that lets all the characters overlap in a story called the passing.  This will be a DLC that have the characters from the first game meet the characters from the second game…then there will be a second DLC for the first game that explains how they all meet.

Weekly Challenge!

Come join the fun! Every week at Gamersdigart.com we have members of  the site pick a new topic or theme and we have a week to illustrate it.  The purpose of the challenge is to push each other to create some new art about the games we love.  I personally love it because it keeps me busy with art.  It’s not a competitive thing.  Just an Art Jam Session on a weekly basis.  Here is the link.

And here are some samples of the goodies from the challenges…

Like I stated in the weeks since the Weekly sketches began I felt myself become a better artist.  Come join the fun!

My personal results for each week.

Ok..I’m back…here we go!

Sorry about the last two months…It did feel good to just enjoy some good gaming that is for sure.  Here is a link to what I have been up to with the gaming world…

http://www.360voice.com/tag/dreno360

that is right…39 days straight of playing games…

With Gears of War 2 and Left four Dead coming out, Fall Out 3 already out, Dead Space, Fable II…Gaming is really easy to fall into these days…

But I will be steping back into art world really soon!

I only had two entries to the October contest, but there were both really nice.  Here they are…

A character from Dead Space…”Necro-morph”

And two characters from Silent Hill “Pyramid Head” and “Nurse.”

I will announce the winner soon.

With great sadness I have to also announce that the October winner will be the last prize awarded this year.  I am revamping my site and with the cost of that I won’t be do the monthly contest until February 09.

The blog with be going strong and I will be awarding people with smaller prizes like gift cards, Microsoft points, Wii points, and other things as well.

But when the site opens (no date just yet) it will be smooth as butter and mega easy to navigate.  Thanks again to all who have come to this little blog and checked out the ramblings of this gamer/artist!

Leave a comment just to say hi and let me know who reads this blog!  Also write why you like it, if you like it, so I know what I else I could do to make this grow into something larger than what it is now.

Thanks for reading!
