A bunch of porn blogs started following me in the past few days and I don’t know why. Not really that kind of artist guys.

The other blog and visual design in video games

As 5 of you know I have a secondary blog here on noahisverybored.tumblr.com which I largely use to reblog pictures I find interesting or funny.

I’ve decided to give that blog a little more direction and focus it more towards talking about and reviewing games and movies from a visual design standpoint.


Now, I know what you’re thinking, “But Noah you golden adonis! There are millions of loosers giving their opinons about video games!” And to you I say you are absolutly right, but there are very few that take the time too look at things form a purely visual prespective. I’m not interested in giving some new game an arbitrary rating and telling you to buy it, I’m interested in if the visual design and execution of a game is good.


So, if that’s the kind of thing you want to listen to some nerd talk about, then I recommend checking out noahisverybored.tumblr.com

I’m about 90% sure that is right by where we where living in Venice.

So I was super bored yesterday and I made a dumb little doodle. I need to get out more.

Just some of my favorite video games ever, which I also find hugely inspirational for art and design and stuff. 

Also, (with the exception of SSBM) they all do an INCREDIBLE job of world-building and characterization. I love these games so much and I want to work with Retro Studios or Valve or Bioware or From Software so much.

*Not included on this list: Metroid Zero Mission, Fusion, Super Metroid, Metroid Prime 2 & 3. I really, really, really, like Metroid you guys. 

**Except for Other M because it is literally the worst and has no redeaming qualities whatsoever. God I hate Other M so much. 

A piece I did about classic movie monsters as a private commission. The monsters (from left to right) are Godzilla, a Tripod from War of the Worlds, King Kong, Frankenstein’s Monster, the space slug from Empire Strikes Back, the Wolfman, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors, and Jaws.This was a ton of fun to work on since I absolutly adore monster movies. The original King Kong and Godzilla films hold a special place in my heart, Empire Strikes Back is probably my favorite movie, and Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein is one of my favoirite books.

A rough work-in-progress sketch of a piece i’m doing on some classic movie monsters. We got a Tripod from War of the Worlds, Godzilla, King Kong, Frankenstein’s monster, The Wolfman, a Dune Worm, Jaws, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Audrey II, all just hanging out together.

Another celebrity portrait of one of my favorite people on the face of the planet and a man who I greatly admire; Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Mr Tyson is a huge inspiration to me as a person, scientist, and philosopher of sorts. I really hope to meet him some day in person some day, high-five him, and just talk about space stuff for a few hours.

Rough work in progress of my Omega Metroid redesign. Trying to incorporate some more crustacean elements into it and make it look tough, heavyset, and bulky, like an alien t-tex but on steroids.

I was bored so I doodled a cartoon T-Rex for fun.

Some of the common birds that can be found in my home province of Ontario, Canada. Ontario is home to far more species of bird than I’ve shown here; some live hear year round, others migrate too and from during the winters, but I’ve chosen what I think are the most recognizable species.  From top to bottom the birds are: Blue Jay, Robin, Crow, Sparrow, Pileated Woodpecker, Mourning Doves, Cardinal, Red-Wing Blackbird, Grackle, Red-tailed Hawk, Great Horned Owl, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Great Blue Heron, Common Loon (and chick), Mallard Duck (M & F), and Canadian Goose.

Mr Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report.
Brilliant comedian, one of Maxim’s top 100 sexiest women alive and one of the few people alive today I legitimately admire, so I did a painting of him.
