  1. Anime Boston 3/31-4/2

    Anime Boston Calendar Event Once again, we have space at Anime Boston. We can have all hands on deck, as many badges as we need. So volunteer away. I set only so many shifts, but on Saturday, we can never have too many people. Comes with a weekend badge to AB.
  2. See The Last of Us Recreated in Lego Form

    The Last of Us was a gritty tale of survival in a post-apocalyptic world that delved into society's dysfunction and the quirks of the human psyche. Many people hailed it as a high point for video games and championed developer Naughty Dog's achievement. That was years ago, but fans of the game have held onto their passion. Tim Schwalfenberg, an experienced Lego artist, was one such fan and he felt compelled to show his appreciation with an ambitious Lego build. Schwalfenberg worked on his creation for a month, pouring over 100 hours of effort into his vision. He used at least 20,000 individual pieces, an estimate that some consider to be low. The entire set takes up a space of 3.5x2 feet and truly captures the decaying look of The Last of Us' environment. That's not an easy feat to accomplish in Lego, which by its nature is more suited to orderly construction, but Tim Schwalfenberg pulled it off with masterful style. Part of what helped Schwalfenberg to achieve his goals with the piece was deciding that he would need to create some of his own custom blocks if he wanted to really take his Last of Us art to the next level. Using a 3D printer, Schwalfenberg made different pieces to add visual texture to the environment and building interiors. You can (and should, there is some fantastic creations to see) view all the pictures of Schwalfenberg's The Last of Us build and his other work on his personal gallery.

  5. Painting with a Twist!

    Extra Life Jacksonville will be at Painting With a Twist on April 23rd for a Painting With a Purpose Event. 50% of the proceeds will come back to Extra Life in support of Wolfson Children's Hospital and UF Health Jacksonville! The registration link isn't available on PWAT's site just yet, but we wanted to get this amazing event on your radar. They are creating a special painting just for Extra Life Jax and we are stoked for this event. Tickets here:http://www.paintingwithatwist.com/events/viewevent.aspx?eventID=661987
  6. Artwalk

    So, I've had this idea for ArtWalk that we could set up a tent and table and display art, crafts, and baked goods, etc. from any members that want to put forth things for sale. This would require that a portion of your sale go toward your Extra Life donation. Obviously, you would be on the honor system, but I think this could be a way for some people to get their work out there if they are 1) unable to attend ArtWalk, or 2) don't have a lot of stuff for them to warrant setting up shop. This would also draw traffic and attention to the Extra Life name and get us new recruits, as well as, donations. Does anyone have more ideas about what we can do for ArtWalk? Is anyone interested in this?
  7. The digital art dealer Cook & Becker is back again with a freshly released batch of prints for their Sega Collection. The newest prints for Sonic the Hedgehog and Virtua Fighter join assorted artwork available includes pieces based on Streets of Rage, Shenmue, Shinobi, Phantasy Star, Golden Axe, and Jet Set Radio. The new Sonic the Hedgehog print is by Paul Veer, best known for his pixel art for the indie studio Vlambeer (Super Crate Box, Ridiculous Fishing, and Nuclear Throne). Veer worked on the print with Team Sonic to come up with something representative of the blue blur. Talking about his design he said, "The Sonic franchise as a whole has always had a huge influence on my personal art style, so getting to do an official print with Sega was an honor and a dream come true. With that in mind, I wanted to do the entire series justice by including lots of characters from past and present Sonic games." Gerald Peral worked on the prints for Virtua Fighter, which come in red and blue variants. He also created the print for Golden Axe that depicts the characters in a classic, pulp style. John Sweeny's print for Shenmue 3 has been so commercially successful, with all of the revenue going toward creating the third installment in the game series, that he's being made into an in-game character. A few of those prints are still available, but will likely be sold out shortly. On top of all that, Cook & Becker have announced that they will be receiving a collection of Bloodborne and The Order: 1888 artwork in time for Halloween. No word on exactly when we might expect to see these prints, but it is possible to get early access or reserve prints by contacting the dealer via their site.

  9. If you are looking for some new things to put on your walls to impress friends, family, or that special person in your life, Bungie has released the first part of their Destiny concept art collection through the online art dealer Cook & Becker. Used during Destiny's development process, the collection includes work by Bungie concept artists Jesse van Dijk, Jaime Jones, Dorje Bellbrook, Ryan deMita, Kekai Kotaki and Joseph Cross. The first part of the released work consists of twelve different pieces. The second half of the collection will release sometime later this year. The giclee art prints are severely limited, meaning some of the pieces have already sold out. They can be quite pricey, retailing anywhere from $100 to $300 for the base image and upwards of $600 for framing and preservative treatments. Check out the first half of Bungie's gallery for yourself. View full article

  11. Hey everyone! This is my second year participating in Extra Life and I have decided to offer incentives to donors this year in the form of art prints. You see, I am an artist and I thought this would be a great way to give back to those who support me this year. I am, however, currently looking to get some feedback on what images I should offer to my donors and I thought this would be the perfect place to get some input. I would like to offer five or six different images as choices for donors who give at least $10 to Extra Life. I have already chosen Baerith For The Kids for the first slot since I rendered him last year for Extra Life, making him special and appropriate. I am still looking for input for the other 4-5 images. I am wary of choosing work based on games or other copyright materials, but other than that, the rest of my gallery is up for vote. My whole gallery can be viewed here - http://shanarah.deviantart.com These are the images I am currently leaning towards http://fav.me/d4xolun http://fav.me/d74sgbt NWS http://fav.me/d6qbbqf http://fav.me/d5ovy6c http://fav.me/d5v4sqz http://fav.me/d3igqcv http://fav.me/d4rr9q5 http://fav.me/d6qgbqi http://fav.me/d6qfx8l http://fav.me/d8c655 http://shanarah.deviantart.com/art/Proud-To-Be-An-American-8622417 Any input will be very much appreciated. I'm hoping to make fliers with the images chosen on them to take with the donation sheets so offline donors can choose what they'd like a print of.

  15. Famed throughout the world for his talents as an illustrator and character designer, Yoshitaka Amano partnered with Ubisoft to craft an artistic rendering inspired by the upcoming downloadable title, Child of Light. Yoshitaka Amano has quite the legacy in the video game industry. There is a reason you might have gotten a Final Fantasy vibe from the completed piece; Amano designed the iconic look of the franchise himself. From 1987-1994, Amano worked for Square as their main character, image, and graphic designer. He has also continued to create logos and promotional images for the series up until the present. Child of Light releases as a downloadable title on April 30 on Xbox Live, PSN, Wii U eShop, UPlay, and Steam. It features a unique melding of traditional turn-based RPG gameplay and western folklore visuals. Personally, this is one of my most anticipated smaller-scale titles for the coming year and I am excited to see Ubisoft going out of their way to show support for such a cool project. Keep your eye on this one, folks! View full article

  17. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to create brilliant works of art pixel by pixel? No? Well, that is what one man has been doing decades after his retirement. Hal Lasko, or Grandpa as he is better known, reinvented himself several years ago when his family introduced him to, of all things, Microsoft Paint. Now he spends hours every day creating amazing 8-bit artwork. This is made even more incredible when you learn that Grandpa’s vision is almost completely shot. "Do you know I do a lot of my painting with my eyes shut? I've jumped up out of bed and went to the computer to see if I could do what I dreamed I could do." - Hal Lasko I hope that I can be as cool as Grandpa someday. View full article
