This Guy's Finely Detailed, Video Game-Inspired Paintings Deserve an Art Show

Big shoutout to davepollotart for the terrific work here. These are the kind of paintings you can stare at in peace, and for a while at that.

    This was a framed canvas print that I found at a home decor store. I added an older Mario and his hat (trying to match the uniform). I always paint in oils, and I'm pretty careful about what I'll paint into. I know that there are a number of people who really hate this sort of thing, but I do stick mainly to reproductions (framed canvas/board prints). Occasionally I will find some mass produced hotel art and use that, but I'll do my best to make sure I'm not ruining someone else's original work.

    This was one of those hotel art pieces that was given to me by a friend. It had a tear in the canvas which I patched and then covered up with the ant.

    I found this framed print on board at a goodwill. It sat in my basement for some time before I figured out what I wanted to do with it.

    A friend of mine gave me this and asked me to do something with it...

    I just finished this one. The background was a knockoff of another very popular series of paintings that all looked very similar. It just screamed Columbia to me...
