The artist Tom Rhodes has been a busy bee redrawing lots of old school video game characters. He has done Earthworm Jim, Duke Nukem and many more. My favourite is Gordan Freeman above. Check out Tom’s site as he’s got many more cool pictures there.
Gordon Freeman. I’ve noticed a lot of nerd artists tend to draw G-Dawg here as this brave, heroic, smirking bad ass crushing alien faces with a crow-bar, but if there’s anything my life has taught me, it’s that nerds are wimps and cowards, and the way the first Half-Life game was played was far from bad ass action hero. It was a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants game of ammo-management, with really suspenseful silent parts, and frantic action parts.
