Shovel Knight Anime Opening

From the people that brought you the Star Fox TV opening comes an animated tv theme of a game more nostalgic than a Best of Cartoon Network DVD.


Father & Sons’ Design Workshop

Dorkly have found an artist/illustrator able to do something all dads try to do with their children a few times in their lives, validate their imagination. The Father & Sons’ Design Workshop is a project where Thomas Romain (Father) makes incredible anime-ified works of character art from his sons (& Sons’). It would be unwise to go through this life without seeing a mess of felt-tip and tube bodies get somehow transformed into Gundam Peter Quill. So check out the Twitter and Patreon for regular updates on the drawings. Every time you click, one of his boys gains the courage to colour outside the lines.

Pokémon Generations [Full Series]

Further to the previous post, watch the playlist above to enjoy the full series of Pokémon Generations. Or as I like to call it, ‘The Adventures of Looker and Friends’.

Pokémon Generations

Pokémon has kicked off their youtube series which gives a visual retelling, a la Pokémon Origins style, of several stories from the video games. Pokémon, like many other 20 years olds, is still big into anime.

Lisa-Marie Melin has an instagram, @littlegeekyfanart, which she has filled with watercolour artwork of your favourite video game and anime characters. It’s like if all the artists of your favourite childhood memories went to Woodstock, this would be psychedelic, ultra-cool, epilepsy-worrying result. If you thought Nintendo utilized a colourful palette before, you haven’t seen anything yet. Click the picture and scroll through the wonder that is @littlegeekyfanart‘s instagram, there’s not a single unwarranted snapshot of a lunchtime sushi to be seen for miles. And in case you’re interested, she also has an Etsy page where you can buy her prints.
