French artist Jean Giraud has sadly passed away today at age 73. He died of cancer. Jean earned world fame through his uniquely beautiful art style and worked on many comic books and films including Alien, Tron, The Fifth Element and even Star Wars. Sega fans will know his artwork from the fantastic 1995 game Panzer Dragoon released on the Sega Saturn.
Jean’s art was no doubt one of the biggest influences on the Panzer Dragoon series and went a long way in shaping its beautiful, melancholy world. I’ve personally always been a fan of his art, he created barren yet beautiful landscapes like no other. He will be missed. Rest in Peace, Mœbius.
If you guys didn’t know, I have an addiction to Reddit. Yesterday, Reddit user synbios16 posted his Sonic 2 logo (picture above), he made it out of 24,651 little beads. Just for scale he put one bead on the right and the Sonic 2 cartridge on the left. I have to say, that would look good hanging on any wall.
Valkyria Chronicles has some amazing art, so its good to see the Japanese artbooks get American releases. This is going to be the second Valkyria Chronicles artbook that publisher Udon has published in America. The first art book released had art from the first title, this new one is going to be based on the PSP sequel.
If you guys want to pre-order the art book, you can do so on Amazon. The book is listed for $31.24, with a release date of April 10th, 2012.
Check out our review cards. These cards will now go on the bottom of our reviews to display scores. I hope you guys like the art. The artwork for the Amigo heads was done by our forum member, Radrappy. Thanks for submitting!
As for the design of the card, that credit goes to our lovely staff member, Barry The Nomad. Tell us what you think! See the rest after the break.
All the pixel junkies, come in here now. SEGA has released the sprites for their upcoming Thor video game on the DS. Let’s be honest, this is probably the first time a multiplatform game will be the best on a handheld. This one is being done by competent developer WayForward Technologies (A Boy and his Blob & Contra 4).
See SEGA? This is the type of stuff I enjoy playing on my DS. Now if you will excuse me, I will be sitting here drinking my Thor branded Dr. Pepper.
Flickr user Encaja en Camon has posted up some really neat Lego designs. I have always been a fan of Legos grounding up, but my parents never bought them because they where so expensive, its pretty cool seeing someone pull off some video game artwork with them, mainly Sonic.
He has also uploaded some Duck Hunt, Super Mario Bros and Pac Man stuff. Check out his flickr. Below is the finished Sonic Lego piece.
The above image is actually not the winner, he won second place. Though, I think he was cheated. So sadly this masterpiece will not be in the game, that is the price for first place (Correction, both 2nd and 1st will be in game. Yay!).
Head over to the SEGA Blog to see the top 10 pieces of art, what are your favorites?
Above is the concept art for both Thor and Captain America. This is to show off what their on screen outfits will look like. I have to say, the Captain America one is passable, but I do not like the Thor one that much.
If you did not know, SEGA will also be making a Thor and Captain America game based on the upcoming motion pictures. Hopefully they turn out better than the Iron Man games.
Adam Hughes does comic book females in a sort of pinup model fashion. You can see that in this piece he did for Bayonetta.
He says that he was comissioned by SEGA, though he does not know what they will be using it for. They probably won’t use it, Kamiya probably doesn’t think he has enough love for the character. You can leave a message for him at his DeviantArt page.
