Digital Love.

'Love/Hate-Bit' was March's Super Awesome Art Challenge.

I did a set some of the characters Lindsay had crushes on in the games we've played.

pixel boyfriends
the four boner brothers.

pixel boyfriend_otacon
Otacon, from the Metal Gear Solid series (specifically, Metal Gear Solid 4). He's a socially awkward otaku (duh), he falls for dog-loving terrorist snipers and he cries. A lot. Oh, and he's been known to soil his pants at the drop of a hat.

pixel boyfriend_garrus
Garrus Vakarian, from the Mass Effect series (specifically Mass Effect 2). Garrus didn't make too much of an impression in the first Mass Effect, but Lindsay knew straight away that Commander Baby Jiff Shepard would be choosing Garrus for some booty-knockin' action in Mass Effect 2. He might be a bad-ass with a sniper rifle, but he's pretty awkward when it comes to the (human) female form. Plus, he kind of looks like a cat made of rock.

pixel boyfriend_edgeworth
Edgeworth, of the Phoenix Wright series. Although he started off as the bad guy, Edgeworth's pompous attitude and brilliant mind attracted Lindsay right off the bat. Not to mention his penchant for purple and ruffles is pretty irresistible.

pixel boyfriend_remy
Remy, from Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike. I don't think Lindsay or I really know much about this French brawler with abandonment issues. But he's got sweet style, sweet hair and a really big hands.

Hi, I found your blog here through Lindsay's blog (I am in her Tools of the Trade class this semester).

I really like these portraits, especially the ones from the games I have played/watched, which would be Garrus and Otacon. When I was reading the bit on Otacon, I was worried for a second you weren't going to mention the soiling of the pants, so I was glad when I saw you did.

Garrus's cat-flaps look good, too.
