A few months ago, knowing his artistic ability and style pretty well, I contacted CAG member RelentlessRolento
to do a new signature and avatar for me on the forum. I was so impressed with what he came up with in such a short amount of time, I asked him if he'd be interested in another project.
At the time, we were going to be moving in a little over a month. The basement was going to be turned into a den, and I was on the lookout for things to decorate down there. I wanted to do something nerdy (had looked at those Nintendo wall-clings from Blik
), but I kept coming back to the jarring look of those with the slick look that the electronics in the den would have. I ended up wanting to have something more subtle and classy, but equally representative of the hobby I (and we all) enjoy so much.
Thus, Rolento worked with me and spent unknown amount of time for pennies on the hour crafting these five pieces for us. I couldn't be happier with all of them. Even though I was at least somewhat part of the creative process behind them and saw them in various stages along the way, they look so much better framed and hung on the wall than I could have ever imagined.
The prints are 11x14, are hung in rather inexpensive ($6 for a 2-pack of frames) poster frames from Michael's Craft Store (link
) and were printed at Shutterfly
RelentlessRolento was gracious enough also to release medium-resolution versions of the pictures (though unsigned) if anyone wanted to use them as computer wallpaper. He's also offered to pull out individual elements from the pictures if you wanted just his take on Tails, Rush, a goomba, etc.

We hope you enjoy these! They were just too awesome not to share with everyone!
