Wow, I did NOT expect that final set image to get the views its been getting :O. After getting featured on numerous gaming blogs, art blogs and reddit the views and messages just came flooding in :O

Thanks again everyone :) Its such an amazing feeling.

For those of you asking for prints (you know who you are), the villain collection is part of a gallery showcase that will be announced in the near future as part of a gaming media company I'm part of 8bit Ego. Please join the Facebook page for more information :)
For other images in my gallery if you still wish to get a print, email me or send me a note and I will figure something out for the 'one-offs' :)

Again, I can't give enough credit to the big boys in the game like Dave Rapoza, Dan Luvisi, Rigney etc etc. They are massive inspirations to get better and I wouldn't be trying as hard without a benchmark THAT high haha.

Anyone who wishes to improve should attend the Crimson Dagger livestreams by Dan Warren & Dave Rapoza because its an excellent community - all willing to help eachother. Other than that, just practice, practice :P. Always room for improvement :D

(Eye of the Tiger music fades in) :P

hey Josh, can't believe I've only just found your art on here! It's awesome!

Anyway, I shared your Mario picture on Google+ (hope you don't mind - I linked back to the original image and everything :)) [link] and it has been really popular - the Google+ deviantART page even reshared it!

Several people have asked me if you're on Google+ yet, as it is a brilliant platform for artists to gain exposure popularity. After stalking you around the internets for a while, it's obvious that you're already pretty well known - but you'd still do really well on G+!

I for one would really like to see you over there, and I know for a fact that there are many other people who would as well. I'd suggest creating a standard profile for yourself, and then a page (or two, or whatever) for 8bitego and batteriesnotincluded.

Sorry if this sounds like a marketing message... it's not, I just want you to be visible there as well. Though I Google should probably pay me for stuff like this. :P

Hope to see you there soon!

Haha yeah at some point I may shove my stuff on there. At the mo I am kinda busy with uni work so when I get some time off I can upload all the new stuff. In fact, I don't think I would upload everything I have done, just start from now type thing.

But sure I will give it a ponder :D. Thanks thought - I never realised it was that effective at gaining exposure! But not I am not THAT well known haha!! Appreciate it none the less :).

Thanks once again - once I start one up I will let you know!
