Greatest Game Art Ever (This Week): Metal Slug, Shanoa, Star Fox + More
This time in the Greatest Game Art Ever, we’re exploring a lot of classic video game franchises and the great pieces of art they’ve spawned. Get ready for a blast from the past as we take a look at art from titles like Metal Slug, Ninja Gaiden, Mega Man X and more. It’s great to see that even after all of this time, gamers are still so taken with these classic titles and continue to craft amazing original images based on them. We especially enjoy the badass portrait of Pimple from Battletoads. If he’s not a classic gaming character worth honoring, then we don’t know who is.
WANT TO CONTRIBUTE?
We’re dying to see all the art you’ve come across or created in honor of your favorite games. If you have an artist or portfolio you’d like us to check out, please submit a link to John-at-ArcadeSushi.com. Additionally, if there are any artists that we’ve highlighted that wish their works to be removed, please reach out to let us know. Where possible, please visit these artists’ websites to see more of their work, buy their products or commission an original piece.
