Retro by SleeplessGamerChick Retro by SleeplessGamerChick
This is an oil painting for my brother who wanted me to make a painting for his game room. He gave me a list of his favorite NES games to make into a painting: excitebike, contra, kung fu, battletoads, double dragon, ninja gaiden, super mario bros, mega man, zelda, tetris, super dodgeball, final fantasy, ninja turtles, dragon warrior, and duck hunt. This was very fun to make, makes me want to play these old games (which I will this weekend when I give him the painting) :w00t:

Ah..yes. Excitebike and Contra. Two games, hundreds of hours of fun. Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, a, b, a, b, select , start or something like that and walla, 30 lives.

That's a really cool painting.

lol i'm very flattered :D ya the pixels started to drive me mad.. but the painting wasnt as hard as drawing them.. i drew out most of the pixels before drawing them :nod: you can see the outline in my scraps if you want.. but i changed it some before i started on some parts like the nintendo controller i took out as well as the kung fu enemys which were replaced by the ninja turtle scene :)

I tried looking in your scraps but it was failing on me. :( Mine don't show up anyway. Oh darned. I'll try again later because I want to see how this modern masterpiece came together.

Booyah! The drawing is crazy. Crazy! Pixels = crazy. I still can't see how you managed to draw them all in. BTW, I think it was a good move putting the Ninja turtles instead of the controller. :D You have mad drawing skills.
But why did you decide not to paint Mario's right hand in? Did you think it would interfere too much?

Oh, and I also want to see the progress photos in a flipbook gif :boogie:. Always good to learn other peoples painting techniques, to steal... =P

lol thanks for callin it crazy :D I decided not to put marios right hand in because the final fantasy dudes over lapped it.. i dunno lol.. i was tierd.. i'll try to get that flipbook done today :) I didnt take a whole lot of pictures.. wish i took more but i was running out of time to get it done so i didnt take as many as i would like.. maybe for my next big painting i'll take a million pictures ;) which will be of my tommy lee painting when i start it cuz its gunna take a while

This is amazingly, amazingly awesome. It really makes me miss my cousins, because they have an NES ;;
But anyway, everything looks soooo good. *fave* (!!)

OH THAT"S SWEET!! How long did it take you? It's just soooo well done. I can't imagine.

It's great being an artist huh? Gifts are from the heart AND cheaper a lot of times. I have an older sister who has VERY expensive tastes but she always requests painting or drawings as presents. Lucked out there hehehe

lol ya its nice :) my aunt bought me my oil paints, i buy my canvas's most of the time tho. but its still cheaper than buying friends a dvd or something which is what i usually do unless they want a painting instead :)
i worked on it in 3 or 4 days time and worked on it day and night, with some breaks.. i had to watch fear factor and last comic standing :nod: lol and i slept a little bit :)
