'Usually it all starts with a few fuzzy images in my minds eye... Most often I already know who I want to paint, so I set up a photo shoot with them in their own home or studio.

This year at E3, they showcased some of this art for the industry to see, in a special exhibit called Into the Pixel.

We all know that Arnold and James Cameron popularized the half-man, half-machine theme, but Fan Xiaoyan has taken the concept to a whole new level in this series of women with machine body parts. The tank sculptures in particular are of amazing note.

My nostalgia for old video games stems from the "simpler" times of video games, when controllers had 4 buttons and a d-pad, graphics were all 8-bit, and you had to blow into games to get them to function correctly. Ahhh the wonder years.... well some other people share my old timey views, and one of those people (Ninjamoped) went out of their way to make some awesome 8-bit styled art. Watch the video after the jump . . .
