Lets remember a couple of video games from A-Z that were and are rarely getting any spotlight on deviantart:


Rules: Illustrate the Gameplay, simple character illustrations won't be accepted, the challenge is to show what the game you illustrate is about!
Deadline: 31.05.2017

You can post /upload the image everywhere, just mention that it was made for the :icongame-art-hq: April 2017 Art Contest in the Description. Please directly link to this Journal.

You can use a screenshot to illustrate the game, in fact I'd recommend that. Please add a link to the screenshot in the description if possible though.

You can participate with up to three entries.

The 3rd winner gets the article feature or sidebar ad without the extra $10.

The 4-5th Winners will get a surprise steam-game code

It's too bad that "Wave Racers" or "Chameleon Twists" wasn't on the list. :( I loved those games as a kid! X3

Heh oki :)

rule 1, it has to be one of the games in the journal
rule 2, the deadline (31 May)
rule 3, instead of just a character, the gameplay has to be illustrated, thats the challenge of this contest. I recommend to use a screenshot as example and use your own style to draw it

A comic about Dark Souls: player character getting stabbed in the back for 37 consecutive panels. Instant win!

Two months to illustrate an obscure videogame, even though I can recognize some of those listed?  I'm cool to try this and see if I can squeeze an entry in there x)
Also this is kinda unrelated but why isn't Celebi up for grabs for the newbies for the Pokemon Gen 2 project?  Or did you just forget to put it on? =P

Would a comic/black and white shading style be accepted? I don't have access to my markers or tablet for coloring atm so I'd like to do black and white if that would be acceptable.

B&W would be totally accepted, but remember that the deadline is on the 31th May so there is a lot of time left

Heya, glad you liked the selection! It is totally up to you to use a screenshot as a reference to illustrate the gameplay, you can use a screenshot but it is not required
