Thank you to the guys at The Tanooki, Attack Of The Fan Boy, Gamesradar, Capcom Unity and the Capcom Europe Blog for featuring the first two sets of Megaman Videogame Mini-Minimalism recently. To celebrate, the third set from (you guessed it) Megaman 3 are now published over on the Flickr set, featuring another classic array of memorable bosses. This time round we have (clockwise from top left) Needleman, Snakeman, Shadowman, Topman, Hardman, Geminiman, Sparkman and Magnetman. Hope you enjoy them! More coming soon.

My subset of Videogame Minimalism illustrations based on the Megaman Robot Masters continues this week with the eight bosses from Megaman 2, my own personal favourite from the NES incarnations of the franchise. In this set we have (clockwise from top left) Airman, Bubbleman, Crashman, Heatman, Flashman, Quickman, Metalman and Woodman. You can see them in greater detail over on the Megaman Videogame Mini-Minimalism Flickr set.

It’s been awhile since I produced some Videogame Minimalism, so I thought I’d share with you the first batch of illustrations I’ve created that are based on the Robot Masters from the Megaman franchise. These lot are all from the very first Megaman game, released in 1987 on the NES. You can view them in all their glory over on the infinitecontinues Flickr page. They are slightly different in style to my other Videogame Minimalism designs; these characters lent themselves well to small head-shots, and so I’ve come up with a new ingenious name for this particular subset – Megaman – Videogame Mini-Minimalism. Clever, huh?! Expect more of these in the not-too-distant future, and let me know what you think of these in the comments or on the Flickr pictures themselves.

As you may know already, Capcom are giving away Videogame Minimalism iPhone skins in Europe for selected pre-orders of Super Street Fighter IV, as reported by Kotaku. Once I know more information on how to get your hands on these for yourself, I’ll let you know.

In the meantime, the Videogame Minimalism Flickr set now contains Blanka and Dhalsim. Blanka is one of the iPhone skins available, along with Ryu, Sagat and personal favourite E. Honda.

A dedicated Videogame Minimalism website is currently in the works. Stay tuned for updates on that in future posts.

Some mean-looking bosses from Street Fighter IV join the Videogame Minimalism set this week. If you don’t recognise them, they are M. Bison, Balrog and Akuma. Check them out in their full bad-ass glory over on the Street Fighter – Videogame Minimalism set now.

The entire project can be seen here.

Sassy, deadly Umbra Witch and betrayed Horseman Of The Apocalypse from this year’s biggest blockbusters to date, Bayonetta and Darksiders, get the Videogame Minimalism treatment. Check them out over on the infinitecontinues Flickr page.

Mario’s evil namesake is now available to buy as a t-shirt from my MySoti store. Pop along and check him out. Don’t forget to vote on him while you are there!

Two very well-known brothers from my Videogame Minimalism set are now available to buy as t-shirts. Available in a variety of colours and sizes from my MySoti store now. Pop over and have a look. If you are a member of MySoti, feel free to vote for the designs! More tee designs on their way soon.

My set of designs for videogame characters, entitled ‘Videogame Minimalism‘, has been featured in the December issue of German game magazine, GEE, under the auspicious headline ‘Essential’. These works, which you can find links to at the top of the right-hand column of this blog, has garnered a lot of attention since I created them, racking up over 14,000 views and being featured on a dozen videogame blogs. Due to such popular demand, I hope to add to the series very soon; watch this space! The full scanned page from GEE magazine is after the jump. Apologies in advance for the low scanner quality. Any German readers care to translate the paragraph for me?
