Here are my pieces for the 3NES Show which opens this evening at Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. Each participating artist created work based on Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, and Metroid.
My thoughts going into these pieces were that I wanted to stick closely to the original NES games, as opposed to branching out into subsequent games, and I wanted to base them around the female characters in each game. I also knew that I wanted to do some action scenes (which I haven't done recently,) and lately I've had an itch to draw a gnarly monster, so drawing Ganon was able to take care of that for me.
I've seen some of the other pieces for this show and they are all fantastic. Seriously, it looks like everybody went above and beyond for this one.
Prints of these pieces will be for sale at the show, so if you are in the Brooklyn/New York area please stop by!
