View Full Version : Creative Genesis: 16-bit as Art
Besides having a ton of great games, the Genesis is also home to some incredible creativity on the part of its fans. Today we kick off a new feature series that delves into this oft-mentioned but little analyzed aspect of the console we all love. The first installment of Creative Genesis looks at some of the great artwork that has appeared over the years, both official and fan-based. There's also a bit of cosplay tossed in for good measure (you know you want to see this!). Why not read the full article (http://www.sega-16.com/2007/01/creative-genesis-16-bit-as-art/) and see what your fellow Segaphiles have been up to?

I was scared to click on the link, expecting a tidal wave of Sonic furry images. Nice feature. Those "Sega Heroes" images are really nice. :) That Earl one is just weird looking... I think because I don't believe Earl has teeth. No rings, either.

And nice job all around! I especially liked the Sparkster one.

One of the main reasons why I buy the Japanese versions of many games was because of the boxart. ;)

Well, I think Golden Axe really was about the only game where Boris Vallejo was the right person to do the artwork. His art always looks like from cheap fantasy novel, so it kinda fits the Conan-like feel of GA. But I absolutely hate his Phantasy Star IV cover.
These artworks from Devian are way better than the original ones.
I suggested it on some other topic before: Sega-16 should make a competition to remake some of the worst Genesis-covers ever!

I think I've found the best Space Harrier fanart ever. (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/43200417/?&q=space+harrier&qh=boost%3Apopular+age_sigma%3A24h+age_scale%3A5)
I'm falling in love with far too many things all over again nowadays, firstOutRun, then Virtua Tennis, now I'm Space Harrier-mad :(
