Nerd Art Stock Pile- An Epic 80’s Moment, Batman Beyond CGI, Hanna Barbera’s Justice League and MOAR!
The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s crazy things like Wonder Woman dressing on the invisible jet, Skeletor getting ribbed for your pleasure, and other weird shit. There are also a lot of awesome (non soul destroying) things that we see on a daily basis, and we round them up for your viewing pleasure.
ABOVE: Isn’t it nice to see two super heroines getting along with each other, especially when their done incredibly well by deviant artist Ricken? Now if only they would take part in that all girls sleepover over in the watchtower, two words. Epic pillow fight. [Deviantart]
Hit the jump for The Walking Dead, Minimalist Avenger Posters, a shot of Catwoman’s treasure and MOAR!
Admit it, you love the zombies of The Walking Dead, there’s no lying there. These Walking Dead zombie posters created by Danny Miller shows off the intense blood and gore of some of the show’s main adversaries. Just look at that blood just pop off the screen, makes you want to line up a head shot. [/Film]
A gentle riff on the classic first issue of the Justice League from the Bwa-ha-ha-ha era, comes a cover to a comic I wish we had. Created by Brazilian artist Daniel HDR takes a variety of different Hanna Barbera heroes and mashes them together as one unified group. Sure it’s only concept art, but seeing Space Ghost rock a Batman-like scowl is pretty badass. [Geek Tyrant]
Bowser always gets the short end of the stick in the Mushroom Kingdom, thousands of minions defeated by a pixelated Italian stereotype. Maybe this poster, part of a series of propaganda posters created by Fro Design, will turn the tide in the battle against the red menace. [Super Punch]
Check out the first in an awesome series of minimalist hero and villain posters by Andres Romero. Everything just jumps out at you even with what little is actually there, it’s outstanding. [Geek Art]
Batman and Catwoman have always had themselves a “Love/Hate” relationship, and judging by what LorenzoNuti put together it’s more of a hate right now. Is this a mid jewel heist melee or just some nighttime Gotham city foreplay?[Geek Tyrant]
Awwwwww, look it’s a full grown Yoshi plowing through koopas and Bob-ombs with a toddler Mario bouncing along for the ride. Created by the collaboration team of Dani and Pac, this is how Yoshi’s Island should have been made back in the early days of the Super Nintendo. [Deviantart]
The X-men aren’t really known for their fashion sense(black and yellow spandex, are you serious?), but Kevin Wada and Max Wittert have put the X-Men’s on the catwalk and transformed them into fashion icons. Sure there only drawings, but who wouldn’t want look like a cross between David Bowie and Nightcrawler for a weekend. [io9]
If they ever turn Batman Beyond into an updated series or even a videogame then they need to use this amazing CGI work by CGHUB artist Ritorian. Hell, contact this guy and make this into the next DLC for Batman: Arkham City and finally have some DLC worth spending money on. Hint, hint Rocksteady. [Geek Tyrant]
If you’ve never heard of Adam Hughes then you’ve been missing out on some of the best art you’ve never seen. Just check out his vibrant take on Capcom‘s Bayonetta in all her bouncy glory. Pretty awesome for a woman that wears nothing but her own hair. [Deviantart]
Two things that goes surprisingly well together: Quentin Tarantino‘s Reservoir Dogs and the crew members of the Star Ship Enterprise in the best mash-up of the year. This amazingly wicked piece of nerd art was created by Brent Cheshire, who obviously knows Spock has a swagger that can only be worked into a Tarantino classic. [Geek Tyrant]
To wrap everything up, I just want you to know when I close my eyes, I see this. Pure – 100%- awesomeness, wrapped in a nerdy shell and sprinkled in childhood joy. Oh 80’s please never change. [Bam Kapow]
