These fun, one-of-a-kind paper collages are inspired by popular Nintendo video game characters. Washington DC artist and die-hard Nintendo fanboy Chris Lange handcrafts these colorful gaming collages from old Nintendo Power magazines, so he’s not lying when he states that they’re “100% Nintendo”. Pictured here are several works which Lange has previously completed, but each piece is custom made based on subject matter of your choice.

Intricate Handmade Xbox 360 Faceplates

Intricate Handmade Xbox 360 Faceplates
Swiss artist André Willimann handcrafts these gloriously detailed 3-dimensional faceplates for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console. Each one is meticulously assembled from custom molded 3-D pieces, then individually oil painted to give the works depth and color. The artist is currently selling a limited-edition series called “Treasure Island”, which feature a vivid scene of tropical waves, islands and even a detailed skull if you look close enough. While I love the pirate theme, I have to say this earlier “Molten Stone” faceplate really knocked my socks off.
