Default Hey That Original Art Is Pretty Cool Thunderdome



'Cos not everything's fan art. Sometimes original works are pretty nifty! Reposting this little beauty from Awesome to get the ball rolling.

This is great, have I mentioned how much fanart bores me?

I encourage everyone to look at that ogre thing in the first image carefully. He has a giant spider as a chair, a fanny pack full of spiders, an octopus in a holster (???), hollowed out penguins for boots, in addition to puking rainbows into a skull-tankard. What a weirdo!

Pretty interesting original species from this artist (careful, you may find some NSFW stuff there too, you've been warned!)

I'm pretty sure he's the party's wizard.

Anyway, I've cooled on a lot of the artists that I loved as a teen (sorry Wayne Reynolds), but I still have a fondness for Vinod Rams.

I'd rather think that the magical tankard is flowing UP into his mouth.

Stumbled on this one at DeviantArt forever ago.

I really love the perspective on this.

It's pretty cool how much that looks like it ought to be fanart, for some manic action game.

In fact, it kind of looks like what you'd get if you took the robots out of Megaman Legends.

Now I want somebody to make it.

I like the luminescent colors of the puke and stuff but that first picture is just fucking weird. Also, was that all hand drawn? I mean, it kind of looks like it was half done by a computer. It's confusing me!

These three are from Derek Yu's site:









These two aren't:





(These two pics have a link to the source. Also, yeah, I kind of have a thing for Ron English.)

Steve Prescott is basically the best (sorry for big).


Also, that sunflower picture might be the most 90s thing.

This is a poster a guy made for a comedy show one of my friends headlined. My friend's avatar is on the left (he indeed a very large dude). Anyway the guy who did the poster does some freelance work and I thought it was worth sharing with y'all. I like the theme!



A bigger image of JD's avatar, so you can more fully appreciate the 16-bitness of it all.

My aunt has been a professional artist for longer than I've been alive, and recently she has taken such of her work as she has digitized and put 'em on the internet.

It depends on how big it is, and whether it's an original or a print (I'll talk to her about gicle prints 'cause originals and lithographs are pretty pricey).

Similar: Eleanor Schorer - though those links are rather low-quality reproductions.
