CONTRA 3 - THE ALIEN WARS FANART by IamAxiom CONTRA 3 - THE ALIEN WARS FANART by IamAxiom
My first fanart piece. I had this in mind for a while now.
Contra has propably been the single most influental game for me- I still like to play it today.
But when I was a kid this game totally blew my mind. Too bad I havenīt had a SNES back then myself...

Great work on the characters, and freaky bosses. Especially, Jagger Froid looming in the background. Those are great games, and it's nice to hear video games are inspiring artists today.

Thank you:) Yes ,video games always were a big inspiration for me, used to "design" my own games on paper when I was a kid :)
Like drawing the characters, level layout and box art.

Hehe I used to do that too. I used to draw my own Zelda dungeon maps, SMB2 caves, and such. :D

Excellent art. Gosh I loved the Contra series.  I remember all these enemies. I loved all the monsters. Wonderful detail. Great coloring and glow effects.

Haha, yeah me too. Thanks for your kind words :)
Was probably the first SNES game I saw at a friends house. That game was so creative to me. Growing up I eventually found out about what influenced the designers like Alien and Terminator but that doesn´t take away from the magic :)

You're welcome.  I've recently started doing game art and been nostalgic and came across your drawing.  I saw those movies before the game was out so I think it's great. I don't now how they got away without getting sued but I'm glad they did.

Me neither, the last boss always got me- even on the lowest difficulty level.
But this game really inspired me back in the days. This made me actually want to create my own games...
