Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerdy art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every nook and cranny of the Interwebz. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly feed of nerd art. On with the dump!
Cory Godbey is doing the covers for Ed Staruss’ forthcoming book about Tolkien’s The Hobbit, above is just a taste of the his amazing work. [Geek-Art]
Hit the Jump for the Mario Bros., Metal Gear Solid’s Meryl and MOAR!
Based on artist Patrick Brown‘s first time playing the post-apocalyptic game DayZ, Patrick decided what a better way to show everyone’s first time then insert himself into running away from a horde. This is an experience shared by all who’ve played, moments before they rage quit and shut down their computer. [Deviant Art]
Remember that part in Metal Gear Solid where you stare at Meryl’s ass -and for some of us paused it for way too long? Yeah, so does Daniel MacGregor. and he decided to draw a picture of it. Well, it will last longer. [Closet Geek]
If this was how Luigi’s Manson 2 was supposed to look then a million units of the Nintendo Wii U would be pre-ordered that much faster. Too bad Joe Havasy‘s awesome drawing in nothing more then that, a drawing. At least it looks amazing. [Joe Havasy Illustration]
Let’s face it, these Nickelodeon‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are good, but nothing beats the look of the original bad ass heroes in a half-shell. The Turtles are meant to be tough, it’s the way they should be. If you know who originally created this wicked piece by all means tell us, we’ll give him or her credit. [Monkey Land]
No matter how long the Avengers has been out the parody pieces keep getting better and better, like what Jay Phenrix has done here. Giving each key Nintendo member an Avengers makeover is pretty damn cool and fits them quite well to their counterpart. The only thing we can call “bullshit” on Mario, there is no way he could make a suit like that on a plumber’s salary. [Copiously Geeky]
Adventure Time has gone from a series on the Cartoon Network to a multi-million dollar franchise, but the one area it’s missing is the Japanese anime portion of the market. So Deviant Art user Suihara decided to help with a super wicked cast shot of the Adventure Time crew, anime style. [Deviant Art]
After falling from the sky and landing on a earthworm about to be eaten, Earthworm Jim was brought into existance and thus began the weirdest gaming franchise ever, but according to Stanislav Novarenko Jim wasn’t buff enough. So thanks to the power of design Stanislav gave Jim a much more updated look for princess what’s her name. No really, her name is Princess What’s Her Name. [Rampaged Reality]
Kizer Stone, you are amazing, giving eash Ghostbuster a new proton gun to match each buster’s personality. [Geek Tyrant]
And lastly, you’re requisite Spider-Man/Mary-Jane/Black Cat pic of the week. [Babes of Art -NSFW on certain pages]
