Nerd Art Stock Pile! Sexy Lady-Altaïr, Millennium Falcon Wedding Cake, Batman Origami, Jedi TMNT, Doctor Who Mash-Ups And MORE Nerdy Art!
There’s a lot of nerd art on the ‘net. Mostly it’s fan-fiction tentacle Pr0n but, hey, we’re not complaining! We see so much neato art work on a daily basis, but they don’t make it to the front page of Nerd Bastards for whatever reasons. We’re either lazy, or a piece of stand alone artwork isn’t enough to warrant a full post. Mostly we’re lazy. But who are we to rob you of this net glory? We’re bastards, but we’re not assholes. So, here’s a roundup of the latest nerd art: intended for eye masturbation purposes.
The Nerd Art Stock Pile will become a weekly feature from now on, so keep your eyes peeled for these every Wednesday!
We’ll start this week off with a piece by Will Murai, who explores the idea of Altaïr, the lead character in Assassin’s Creed, being a woman. It’s a great piece of work; this artist is obviously talented and knows his craft. And she’s pretty fuckin’ sexy. Obviously the entire point was to appeal to dicks all around the globe, a la Dead or Alive, but her outfit is extremely impractical for her line of work, and the stark contrast between Altaïr’s complete coverage and her lack of coverage is a bit ridiculous.
I would definitely argue that really well made cakes are considered art. This wedding cake is an amazing recreation of the Millennium Falcon, made by The Butter End Cakery in Santa Monica, CA. Kudos to the super nerdy couple, though the idea of fatasses destroying it is rather sad.
Artist BrickHut‘s work tends to be on the minimalist side of things, but some of their movie posters and other such work actually gets pretty creative in order to convey their ideas as succinctly as possible.
Larry Wentzel went for a Doctor Who/Peanuts crossover! His comment on the piece:
I imagine after the 11th Doctor was put in the Pandorica, the villains broke out into a little celebratory dance.
Tyler Windham‘s Teenage Mutant Jedi Turtles. ‘Nuff said.
This is an older piece of Wolverine art done by Jeff Agala, who was inspired by the 2009 video game.
A close-up drawing of Green Lantern by Penerari, done using dry pastels and watercolor pencils. The cool thing about this is the additional detail of Hector Hammond’s face reflected in the eye.
Aaron McConnell whipped up this Little Mermaid piece for a Periscope Sketch Challenge. It’s absolutely beautiful with its coloring and the mood that it captures in that moment.
A Harry Potter/Doctor Who crossover! Alex Ryan calls the dementor/dalek mashup dude a dalmentor. I gotta say: that kinda works.
This fuckin’ crazy drawing of Leonardo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is fuckin’ insane. Dave Rapoza is serious.
This piece of vector art by Michel Mulipola is a really cool and minimalist piece of vector art featuring each member of the Lantern Corps.
We’re generally used to the Cookie Monster being kinda cute and kinda dorky, but never scary. Well, this reimagination of the thing by Rhys Cooper is fuckin’ terrifying.
If you don’t know what the Venture Bros show is about, I suggest you go and make yourself knowledgeable now. Credit goes to Matt McKendrick.
Brian Chan made some kickass Batman origami that recently surfaced on the Interwebz. This whole thing was folded from one piece of square paper without cutting it or anything like that.
And that’s all for this week! Tune in next week for more nerd art fun!
