[Welcome again to Video Game Crafts 'N Gear! This is a weekly feature wherein I shine the spotlight on three of the best custom-made, video game-inspired projects I've come across this week. Whatever the game and whether it's art, crafts, toys, cosplay, animations or anything creative, if it's awesome enough I'll share with you wonderful readers!]
Hey folks! It’s been a little while since the last Crafts ‘N Gear, as the feature went on a few week’s hiatus. After you see this week’s special E3 2014 edition, however, I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s been worth the wait. As expected, artistic and creative have come together to celebrate and capture the immense excitement for us all during E3. We’ll be moving away from the “crafts” side this time and focus on the beautiful artwork found across on the internet. Enjoy!
There were many pleasant surprises during the Bayonetta 2 trailer. New footage of the game itself was a joy alone, and then we were treated to the reveal that the original Bayonetta would be included in the package. Then, out of nowhere, we saw the titular Bayonetta donning the costumes of iconic Nintendo characters.
Tumblr user kitsune23star celebrated this announcement by creating comics of the sassy sorceress defeating Nintendo’s greats and stealing their identities. The results are a funny and entertaining series of crossover character interaction, with some fantastic manga-style art to gorge your eyes on.
People will never stop loving Pokemon with a passion, and I’m so glad for it. Needless to say, the proper reveal of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire had the internet in waves of hype as always, and I’m happy to report that that excited energy has gone into some impressive fan art.
The fully evolved forms of Ruby and Sapphire‘s starter Pokemon were revealed to have Mega Evolutions in the 3DS remakes. Not only has DeviantArt user arkeis-pokemon created some beautiful art for the Hoenn giants, he has also inventively turned them — and the original Kanto Mega Evolutions — into “parents”. Check out Charizard offering its flame to help feed baby Charmander, and Mudkip flexing its little muscles for big daddy Swampert.
Zelda U Art
The Zelda Wii U teaser was brief, but it was certainly enough to send fans into frenzy. This piece by DeviantArt user HeavyMetalHanzo encapsulates everything that was exciting about the trailer into a single image.
We can see Link in his new outfit, the latest incarnation of Epona, the monstrously fast and intimidatingly large monster destroying the environment with a laser and that gorgeous forest setting. The level of detail re-imagines the scene perfectly, and the various shades of green in the background add a great sense of mystery to the art — much like the mysterious footage itself.
Hanzo also created an awesome animated GIF, showing the different stages of the creative process!
