Arthur De Martino’s Favorite Posts!

Arthur, here.
For the last time in a while!
After four years providing you with my favorite digital artists that happen to bump into Artlords, it’s time for me to move on the next thing.
I adored my time with this community, so goodbye! And thanks for all the love.

Before I go to the great beyond, I wish to share you my favorite blog posts as well share how it felt to write it down. Let’s revisit the good times, shall we? (click on an image to go to the full post)

ART OF SERIES

The art of Samurai Showdown
Art of Streets of Rage

These are two games that I knew for a fact were a bit obscure for North American readers (our biggest set of eyeballs on the website) and this reflects on the view count. However, the art in these games, from these artists, made me who I am today. I still remember staring at Streets of Rage II cover for hours as a kid, and I owned a poster with that image from Samurai Showdown.

Art of Berserk
Art of Lain
The Art of “Ghost in the Shell”

Berserk and Ghost in the Shell are legendary manga, with art that has inspired many digital artists from time to time. In the Ghost in the Shell post, we even talk a lot about Maciej Kuciara, who joined us early on the Artlords life span and went out to work on the live action movie.
Finally, I decided to share Lain art as well because it’s a series that spoke to me and my work. For someone who spends so much time in the internet looking at pieces of digital art, how much that impacts me on the “meat world” was always something in my mind.

Art of “Intergalactic Lucha Libre League”

My first independent project, made with two members from Digital Artlords, Tiago Silverio and Daniele Cruz. To present it to the world via Artlords made it extra special. Now that I am leaving, I will have plenty of time to work on more RPG books from now on. So if you enjoyed this particular “Art of”, expect even more in the near future.
