This week in the Greatest Game Art Ever, we take a look at some somber and serious-looking portraits of characters while also exploring pieces inspired by Team Fortress 2, which has just released a hilarious short film. You have to admire the juxtaposition of somber and silly images as they kind of illustrate some of the main emotions that video game elicit from us. One minute you're bludgeoning enemies with frying pans in Team Fortress 2 and the next minute you're dealing with surviving in a broken world in The Last of Us. Check out the gallery below and look out for the rather emotional piece inspired by 'Bravest Warriors.'


We’re dying to see all the art you’ve come across or created in honor of your favorite games. If you have an artist or portfolio you’d like us to check out, please submit a link to Additionally, if there are any artists that we’ve highlighted that wish their works to be removed, please reach out to let us know. Where possible, please visit these artists’ websites to see more of their work, buy their products or commission an original piece.
