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!
Above: A Realistic take on The Enderman, one in a series of Minecraft characters designed by Deviant Art user DevBurmak. Once you remove the pixels from the survival creation game the mobs are a bit more terrifying than we would have expected. Look at this all you want too, but for the love of Notch don’t look him in the eyes. [Geek Tyrant]
Hit the jump for Star Wars, Where the Wild Things Are and more.
As the artist for American Vampire, Rafael Albuquerque has drawn a lot of violent acts in comic books so it’s nice to see an him step away from that with a piece for Where the Wild Things Are. Rafael updates the beloved children’s book characters with his signature style that just hits you right in your feelings. Should the book ever be redrawn please call Rafael first. [Deviant Art]
Artist Megan Lara is at it again with her art nouveau collection of characters, this time featuring The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen. With little nods to the trilogy as well as the film Megan has once again outdone herself with another piece you can own. I wonder if Jennifer Lawrence has seen this yet? [The Mary Sue]
If there’s one person that can do no work with drawings it’s Dustin Nguyen. The man has talent coming out the pencil, like this Adventure Time/Batman mash-up featuring Finn and Marceline all set for a night of fighting crime and long awkward romances. Kudos on the Jake gargoyle too. [Vicious Blue Eyes]
Erich Owen must have been mad to do something like this, Eleven Doctors in eleven separate drawings and yet he pulled it off without a crack in time and space. Now let’s seem try this with every one of the Doctor’s companions. [Geek Native]
Here’s Johnny, well a complete CGI art rendering of actor Jack Nicholson in The Shining we’ll currently get. Created by artist Hossein Diba, Jack’s famous fit of psychosis is forever locked in a CG render and ready to scare people for years to come. [Badass Digest]
From Injustice: Gods Among Us concept artist artist Justin Murray comes a Spider-Man with a sweet logo change and a bit of extra webbing. Fingers crossed that Marvel will see this and jump on a proper fighting game in the next few years. [CGHUB]
Game of Thrones spoiler alert! This is secretly why it’s taking so long for George R. R. Martin to finish writing his next book. Actually, this collaboration of Jaime and Tyrion Lannister is the work of, and I’m not kidding when I write this, Hans McSpankyurbumsky. You can’t spell “badass” without McSpankyurbumsky. [Deviant Art]
Admit it, you’ve all wanted this scene in a Star Wars movie ever since Episode One. While it’s unlikely that we’ll see an Ewok punch Jar Jar Binks in the thermal detonators at the very least Bobby Rubio is giving us what we want in an animated form. There’s always Star Wars: The Clone Wars…oh wait, never mind. [Bobby Rubio]
