Since we’re somewhat back I’ve decided to expand The Rogues Gallery a bit. The sheer amount of concept art that goes into any gaming project is absolutely staggering, and given how gorgeous most of it is it’s an absolute shame that many are completely unaware of a lot of it. So we’ll be showcasing the concept art of some gaming titles from time to time, and I’ve decided to kick it off with the art of FINAL FANTASY XIII as I’m currently replaying it. Hit the jump to check it out!
We’ve already seen artist Ant Lucia’s gorgeous series of DC Bombshells as a line of statues, but now we have some good news for those of you a little too light in the wallet to buy a ton of statues: they’ll soon be available as prints over at his shop. Hit the jump to check out the prints.
Ever since the announcement of Kingdom Hearts III, I’ve been pining hard for those lost adventures of yesteryear with Sora and Co. It seems like everyone else out there is feeling the same way as we’ve seen a lot of Kingdom Hearts related stories hit the web in recent months (no doubt due to the release of Kingdom Hearts 1.5). To help fill the void while we wait for Kingdom Hearts III to get a release date, Did You Know Gaming has released a video detailing some little-known facts about what went on behind the scenes during the development of the original Kingdom Hearts. Hit the jump to check it out, there’s some cool stuff in there.
Man, I don’t know how I missed these at NYCC this year but color me depressed that I did. Artist Phillip Sevy takes arguably the two most famous families in comics, the Bat-family and the X-Men, and lets them get their hipster on in two of his latest pieces, complete with Instagram filter. Hit the jump to check them out.
Well this is totally out of left-field, but I love it. Artist Southern Panda of deviantART thought to combine not our usual Pokemon heroes as Team Fortress classes, but everyone’s favorite working class public servants: Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny. Hit the jump to check it out.
I wondered when someone would actually make a legitimate parkour video decked out in Assassin garb. Thankfully, Ronnie Shalvis has. Check out the video above, it’s actually quite good.
Sort of an odd post for us, but this just had to be shared. It’s so ridiculous that it transcends into pure awesomesauce. Apparently it was made entirely to mock the “Gangnam” district of Seoul, which is filled with rich people, by having the artist sing about how classy he is while decidedly unclassy stuff happens. Just watch above, and be amazed.
