Credited with having some of the best box art of all time, Secret of Mana deserves a remake directly inspired by its original packaging.
Octovon, a group of Minecraft players so good at building maps that they’re available for commissions, are responsible for this absolute work of art.
The Witcher 3, Battlefield 1 and Fallout 4 are video games that take place in enormous 3D spaces. But let’s imagine, for a second, they (and loads of other big modern games) were actually quaint little 2D (or 2.5D) platformers instead.
At the beginning of the month a modder from Finland updated a program that lets players of the 2015 game The Division take jaw-dropping screenshots. On Tuesday of this week, just over a week later, he was informed by the game’s publisher that he’s been banned from the game forever.
Since its first DLC, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has given players the option to look back at all the places they’ve traveled by showing their path in green, known in the game as the “Hero’s Path.” While the feature has always been neat, it looks even more unique and intimate when turned into a real-life…
They just don’t make covers like they used to. Video games of the 80s and 90s were usually accompanied by hand-drawn and detail-rich box art and if it was a title published by Ocean or Imagine, chances are the artist was Robert Wakelin. Sadly, Wakelin passed away earlier this month, but a part of him will continue to…
The most recent arc of Marvel’s primary Star Wars comic has been fantastic, as the team behind the first, outstanding volume of Darth Vader, Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca (joined by colorist Guru-eFX), have penned an interesting epilogue to the events of Rogue One. But something’s been bothering me more and more…
Monami Ohno is a Japanese cardboard artist. Kotaku has previously featured her work, and since then, she’s continued to churn out amazing creations.
Screenshot artist Andy Cull, whose work we featured last month on Kotaku, is part of a group called Infinite Lives. In this post, you’ll find some “screenshots” from their efforts that represent “the best in video game portraiture”, using a game as the foundation to express photographic art through.
It would be easy to look at this video, listen to the music, check the quality of the design and lighting and models and think hey, these are our first looks at some new maps for Overwatch. But nope, they’re all the work of 3D artist Joshua Llorente.
Here’s a timelapse video of reader Christopher Cayco drawing all 807 current Pokémon. It took him 350 hours over a span of 42 days.
Developer and illustrator PaperBeatsScissors has prepared an entire menu of tasty Pokémon creations over the past few weeks.
Games love to pummel you with lists of things to collect, places to get to, and enemies to beat. Sometimes you just need to take a moment to pause, catch your breath, and look up at the beauty above.
Another year, another crop of video game paintings doing their best to class up the place.
Because I run our video game concept art feature, I sometimes get sent art books to take a look at. Yesterday was the first time I barely got one through the front door.
