I was approached by EB Games recently when my entry into their gift card contest was revealed to be a finalist www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi… they wanted to use some of my fanart pieces for the VIP area of the 2012 EB Games Expo in Sydney! If that wasn't exciting enough, I was commissioned to create a brand new piece for them, this collage! The 'Ultimate Gamer' is a type of ticket I believe that people bought to get a bunch of extra benefits at the expo, including the use of the VIP room.
This took me all week, I worked my butt off ha ha XD By the end I started realising all the characters I could have put in! Unfortunately I only had so much time, adding more would have taken me much more time. Most of the character choices were requested by the 'Ultimate Gamers' themselves, and the staff at EB Games. (by the way, the four at the top next to Link are the social media staff).
I had a blast working for them and making this image 8) I hope you guys like it too.

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOGMOGMGOMOMGGOMFOFGMGFOMFG OH MY FUCKING GOD RATCHET AND CLANK RATCHET AND CLANK I'm sorry I need to control myself whenever I see them. It's just that they're the first video game I've ever played and deadlocked is my favorite game of all time
I love art like this especially when the reactions between the characters is incorporated into the piece . Amazing amount of detail and so many wonderful characters. And A+ on the background, colorful but doesn't take away from the characters.
Well you surely are extremely lucky for being picked for such a commission in such young age! Congrats! Bet they will call you later for a stable job! Surely you made a very good job in this very elaborate poster! I thought these kind of companies were stuck ups with the official style, but seems actually they accept different ones after all!
They've been promoting me heaps through this, and my sig is on the poster anyway So yeah its been very good. That happens often, its unfortunate when that happens D: You've just gotta hope people are decent and link to the original.
