-GameBoy Colour- by shazy -GameBoy Colour- by shazy
EDIT: holy WOW a Daily Deviation!?? THANKS SO MUCH GUYS!

A competition entry for a local art competition. I found out today that i came 1st! The 1st prize is 250 in art vouchers. Am so happy~

The theme was childhood memories. I wanted to do a gameboy/pokemon tribute because that pretty much sums up my childhood. Also the multicoloured coffee style served well the theme of 'Colour' here so i wanted to try it. The real picture is mounted on black and arranged like this, also framed.

Hope you like it^^

And i am well aware the (in)correct spelling is 'Color' but the title is more towards the colours of the piece itself.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-10-30
-GameBoy Colour- by *shazy ( Suggested by Indae and Featured by Mollinda )
:icongwillian-vale:
This is one of the most stunning things I have ever seen. Your use of colour here is exquisite, and love the splatter effect and slight sepia tone that there is to everything- it really adds to that nostalgic feeling.

I'm not surprised to hear that this was a daily deviation, or that you won the contest that you entered this in. This is a truly magnificent piece of artwork that captures the childhood of an entire generation.

You should be very proud of your work and treasure it always- you have a true gift and this clearly shows it

This is the most amazing piece of art I have ever laid my eyes on! You really capture the true meaning of "colour" meaning with the Gameboy. You show what everybody was doing, or did, needed or played in that childhood memory. A memory filled with batteries, earphones, link cables, and games - especially Pokemon. I also love how the colours blend in with each other. When this system first came out. People saw it as you drew it. A whole new world of colour, and imagination - taking it to the next step. When I see this painting, I see an artist. A truly magnificent piece of art. I'm glad you framed it. Be proud of your work. And if you keep going, I see loads of creative painting in the future. I'll look for you when your art gets into a museum! Keep going, and have fun.

hi Shazy,

While I have never been into Gameboy, I REALLY like your art! I love the soft, muted tones of color in this one. Surprisingly soothing considering your subject matter.

oh, thanks! Sorry for the late thanking
you know, most amazingly awesome artists don't bother replying to people like me
so I guess you've become my favourite artist on here! I'm going to do some fanart of your OCs, if that's alright? They may not be on here for awhile because I've been busy lately (you're ok with fanart, right? I think I read that on your page somewhere) 
Thanks again!!oh, and good luck with your comic :3

D: If you draw my OCs i will love you forever! *licks slowly* YESSSSSSSS (not that i didnt love you before)

You have pleased me this day good sir, most pleased indeed.

You have revitalized my love for the Gameboy Color and not only that, but its Pokmon contents as well.

The streaks, the color, the backsplash, the water splash,

Each gives it a sense of pop like that of my favorite story books.

You sir are a talented individual.

I absolutely can't get enough of this. When I think of my own gaming nostalgia I picture it with a warm burst of colours dusting over my memories, and you really captured those feelings in this! I love it. :heart:
Also, that tiny pikachu is adorable. :aww:

a wonderful painting! may i ask if you used the coffee as water and then tinted it with some watercolor or did you use watercolor on top?

I spread coffee (mixed with water) over the page and then added colour by dipping watercolour into it~ hope that helps. thankyou
