Arcade From Hell
Being somewhat displeased with one of my previous paintings which was supposed to be an homage to arcade games from the 80s I decided on a different approach (technique-wise) to a similar theme. The idea was quite disparate (if there even was an idea!), but I just thought about mixing an arcade cabinet, medieval motifs, elements from horror movies and heavy metal music...and this is the result. It's probably one of the weirdest stories I came up with, but then again, arcade games usually had really simple ideas behind them which was one of their charms, I suppose.
