Archon's Nintendo Power Original Art Photo Thread


Art of Nintendo Power

Recommended Posts

Welcome to my Nintendo Power Original Art Thread! These are all pieces from my collection of Nintendo Power Art.

Unless specifically noted, all pieces are the original paintings or drawing from published issues or strategy guides.  

Enjoy!

FYI I will not answer questions about how or where I acquire work, or who the artists are. While I am happy to share, I have no interest in creating my own competition.

Seriously guys, even if you don't like the YouTubers, you should check out the video link Archon posted a couple weeks ago, where that crew went and toured his collection.  It's definitely an impressive site to behold.

I own absolutely zero, original art for games in any form.  I have no clue where to start, or how to get this stuff at reasonable prices but, man, I love it.  Archon's collection is truly one to envy, even if you've been collecting for 30 years.

Very nice pieces! Thanks for sharing with the community. Love the framing jobs, too. Hopefully your source has even more goodies to preserve and add to the collection down the road.

This actually isnt everything I have, nor is this from a single source. You're looking at a dozen different sources.

We almost got a FF6 cover? Awesome. Looking at the covers from that time, I'm guessing they ended up doing Illusion of Gaia instead.

Maybe! That one sure is out of place. Sadly I don't have any background as to why that Shadow piece was selected.

What a small world we're in. I'm a moderator on the Nintendo Power Facebook page, and when I started seeing original art pieces get posted on the page, I knew it was just a matter of time before I found them posted elsewhere.

Fine collection you have here. If you ever consider letting any go, please keep me in mind.

The vast majority of this collection is slated to go to the Strong upon my death 🙂
