This depends hugely on personal taste. I'm one of the rare outliers who says a great percentage of the PS4 library has very little appeal, while a great percentage of the Switch library already has huuuuuuge appeal. Some of the games you can get on Switch are the best you can play on any console. But then there is multimedia functionality to take into account, something Sony has a huge leg up on.

Hey GB Community,

I love Giant Bomb and video games, and I'd like to share my art with more people, so please check out my website:

I sent the duders a poster a while back that made it into a Mailbag vid, and the image kinda made the rounds on the site. But I draw a lot of things, so please check me out!!

Thanks a lot.

      I don't think these games are even that good. Sort of boring. But at least the non-pixel art one is finally comng out.

      Glad I could provide a good source of nipple-based nightmares for everybody!

      Here's the ink drawing i scanned in to be edited and colored:

      If you compare it to the finished piece, you can see the minor changes I made after I took it into photoshop. I used brush and ink to complete this before I colored it digitally.

      Thanks again to everybody for the kind words! I'm working hard on organizing a website for my illustrations, and it will be complete soon. I'll post a link here when it's done.

      I also completed an issue of my very own comic book as my senior thesis for school. I worked my ass off to complete it, and I'd love to share it with more people, so maybe I'll post a bit of it here in the near future.

      @monkeyman04: The picture was actually designed as a poster, and is exactly the right size to be one, 18"x24", and high enough resolution to be scaled up accordingly. I even intended to have this done, and in poster form for when the guys came to Boston for PAX, but then I found out that they wouldn't be doing one of their usual bar hangouts, and I put the work down for a few months. (I'm a college student in Boston, I can't afford to go to PAX!)

      Thanks a ton for all the kind words everybody! I'll post the original inks later, cause I think it's pretty interesting to see process stuff.

      @zombiepie Here's a recommendation for GBCS.

      Thank you very much! I'd love to make the spotlight! I've been with the Duders since the Gamespot days, and it would be an honor to make front page!

      Here's the first mockup I made before I went into the final drawing. I'll post the raw inks next:

      Hey guys,

      I'm a senior illustration major in my last weeks attending art school, and I've been working on this piece of Giant Bomb art here and there for a few months:

      Don't mind Drew and Brad's missing facial hair, or Dan's now inaccurately long hair. I finished the inks a few months back when they DID look this way =)

      Let me know what you guys think, and I'll post some of the process work when I get the chance later.

      I like this blog post, seems like people are kinda bein' dicks. I get that same warm fuzzy happiness from video games, and I'm grateful for it too.
