YO VIDEOGAMES! by Ry-Spirit YO VIDEOGAMES! by Ry-Spirit
YO VIDEOGAMES!!!!!

A fan art of nearly all some of the video game consoles in history having a characteristic look. This artwork took me MUCH longer than expected, all those referencing was so frustrating.. but you know what? It was worth it :D

You can probably tell from the artwork which consoles I like and which I pity and which I ain't too fond of. In the comment below, tell me which video game console is your favourite. Go!

PS: Big thanks to none other than Deviantart who has been twitting this, facebooking this and tumbling this artwork. I appreciate your effort and kindness. Keep up the good work on this site. <3

PS again: Thanks to Kotaku who decided to feature this too.

PS again again: Thanks DA for featuring this on their facebook. www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi…

A new artwork featuring the PS4 and Xbone can be seen here for anyone interested

Hi Ry-Spirit,

It's a wonderful art and I would very much like to use your artwork in my YouTube Game Channel (www.youtube.com/eueelajoga) in some thumbnails.
Please let me know if you will allow me to use this.

Thank you.

Some of my best memories came from playing a Game Boy. Our parents are divorced so when I went over to my mom's house she gave me an original Game boy while my brother got a Game Boy Advance SP. I traded it for 2 Pokemon games so I could give them to my friends for B-day presents. I had a whole trove of Game Boys I refurbished myself before that (Game Boys, Game Boy Colors, Pockets) but I gave all of them away at some point. Until about a month ago while I was on vacation I stumbled upon a retro video game store. There I traded in my green Game Boy Pocket and a lot of other things (Super Mario Bros Deluxe, Game Boy Camera, Tetris 2, Kirby's Pinball Land.) for an original Game Boy with a free copy of Tetris in almost mint condition. I have dedicated my life to that Game Boy and have promised myself to never give it away. I also have a Xbox One & a N64.

Hi-ya Ry!
Hope this makes a winsome epilogue to your Supanova Perth chapter ^_^: After parting with you with my newly acquired prints, this one at the fore-front, I was put in a dandy mood: so much so that when I saw my friend chatting away so casually with Cheez TV's Jade and Ryan, and that their line had dwindled down to just her, I somehow had the vibe that I could chirp in and join them ^0^. (Maybe our mention of the show was some sort of foreshadowing??)
After quick introductions (as if I was a lost soul in this universe who happened to stumble upon their booth and not know who they were XD), Jade suddenly pointed and exclaimed: "What's that!!! May I??"
And he was pointing to this fascinating piece of art here. That I was still holding.
I handed it to him and he and Ryan started absorbing all its quaintness with glee, like children. They started pointing at little tidbits and sussed out what things were: one thing in particular was when Jade said "I was wondering why this Xbox here looks so sad and then I saw its HEALTH-BAR OF DEATH!!!"
And then it hit me long afterwards - these guys made a living out of showing fanart on TV . But I could see that they were genuinely interested in your artwork and loved its subject material. (T'was a great ice breaker btw; we went straight into talking about games :D). Thought you'd like to know who this artwork reached!
(Also I think it's taught me that you allow for strokes of genius when you do embed your personal opinion in it rather than trying hard to please everyone, which could have been the case if anyone else thought drawing gaming consoles would be a sure classic). 

Hope you had a great weekend Ry! It was great finally meeting you in-person, and keep doing what you do well!

omgosh! This comment made my heart skip a beat. Jade and Ryan were the two people I used to watch every morning, I always wondered what it would be like if they saw my artwork on Cheeze TV. But I never submitted anything, back then I had no idea how mail works and I never asked my parents either, I just thought the kids went to the Cheeze TV headquarters and put it in their mail box. ANYWAYS, by the time I was of age of knowing that you could send in art, it was already too late. And then you tell me this story, its like as if something that couldn't have ever happened, happened. My art has been seen by the guys from Cheeze TV. This is surreal. Im glad they liked it!

I wish I met the guys from Cheeze TV. Here's another story, in Sydney we have this yearly festival thing called the Royal Easter Show where there are rides and showbags and horse shows and stuff, they also sometimes have people from TV be there for signings and photos. So this one year (Prob like 15 years ago now), I went to Royal Easter Show with my parents, and Jade and Ryan was in a room doing signings. I saw them from afar and I wanted to meet them, but the line was too long and I was also extrememly shy, so I decided not to join the line... And thats the end of the story...

Anyways thanks for telling me this! It put ME into a dandy mood.
