I’m still working on mastering the circle with my Etch A Sketch, but others have moved on to more … advanced techniques.

The gallery below showcases some of the best gaming-themed art ever created by turning those two white knobs. You’ll see homages to characters like The Legend of Zelda’s Link, Pokémon’s Pikachu, BioShock’s Big Daddy, and more.

I wonder how mad these artists would get if someone shook their “canvases.” They might be quick to switch to a more traditional, permanent technique. Thank goodness we’ve forever enshrined these images here.
