If you’ve ever been to a site like deviantART before, you’ll realize there’s no shortage of incredibly talented artists out there creating amazing video game fan art just for the love of it. Hopefully a few of those artists are reading this, or already know about the Street Fighter IV competition that Don’t Panic are running at the moment, because this time, they can win something other than geek cred.
The winner receives an original piece of Street Fighter IV artwork signed by producer Yoshinori Ono, a PlayStation 3, a copy of Street Fighter IV, copies of other classic Capcom titles, and gets their art distributed on 100,000 posters.
Check out Don’t Panic for more information.

Owen Good over at Kotaku, and his brother, are huge Pac-Man fans. A recent IM conversation between the two led to a fairly in-depth conversation about the size of the stool Pac-Man would produce if he went to the toilet after every board - and the pixel art to go with it. Read and see it all at Kotaku.

Sometimes I wish I was a child again, so I could get birthday presents like this lucky kid did. Don’t get me wrong, I’d order it in a flash if it was on eBay, though.

Its over 5 meters long, contains over 5,000 videogame characters, and is still a work in progress. 20-year-old Swedish twins Mange and Viggo, aka Team Lando, started this insane piece of fan art back in 1999 and intend to keep it going, adding characters outside of the Nintendo domain too. They’ve only got 25 more meters to go. Check out their gallery at DeviantArt for more brilliant pencil art and some sweet custom case designs too.

Racketboy have trawled through a whole heap of crap posted at DeviantArt in order to find 30 Zelda-related pieces of fan artwork worthy of posting - ranging from impressive to jaw-droppingly amazing.
I’m just hoping they saved the 30 worst pieces for a later post.
