Ninjatic, a digital artist from England, has created some game-inspired art in the past. Lately, he's been in an Assassin's Creed mood, leading to a few images influenced by the latest entry in the series.
In the image above, the Jackdaw sits near a vibrant port. The one below features two Man O' Wars fighting during a storm. These stunning pieces were created in hours using Photoshop and a graphics tablet.
Earlier this week Ana Kessel, a interning artist with Insomniac Games, was the victim of a hit and run car accident. Gears of War developer Epic Games has stepped up to help.
Currently, there are three signed Gears of War replica lancers up for bid on eBay. All of the proceeds from the sales will go towards Ana Kessel's medical bills. Each of the guns has more than 20 bids with the cheapest currently going for about $ 200. You can find eBay auctions for the guns here, here, and here. Both Epic Games and the Insomniac Games branch where Kessel worked are based in North Carolina.
Ana Kessel was hit by an unlicensed driver last week who fled the scene. She was taken to the hospital where her leg had to be amputated. She is currently recovering, running a gofundme campaign to raise money for her medical bills. She has raised nearly $ 42,000 of her $ 150,000 goal. You can read more about it here and you can donate by heading here.
We're all rooting for Ana, hoping that she makes a full recovery. We also admire Epic Games for stepping in to help out. Each gun still has about four days to go, so they're on track to raise a good bit of money.
Thanks to Aaron Quixote for the news tip!
Ana Kessel is an interning artist at Insomniac Games who was recently involved in a car accident. She suffered severe injuries and is currently seeking financial help on gofundme.com.
According to the campaign to help her with her medical bills, Kessel was hit by an unlicensed driver who fled the scene immediately after the collision. Her leg has been amputated following the incident, and she will be continuing to go through surgeries over the next few days.
The campaign is seeking $ 150,000 to help cover the cost of medical care, and has currently raised a little over $ 23,500. To donate to Kessel and her recovery, head here.
Our thoughts go out to Ana Kessel and her loved ones, as well as those at Insomniac Games. So far, support for the campaign has allowed her to enlarge their initial goal. We're rooting for Ana and we hope she makes a full recovery.

Stuart Harris, a graphic designer who creates artistic of video game images, has done it again with a tribute to Anubis from the Zone Of Enders series. The frightening Orbital Frame of BAHRAM Colonel Ridley "Nohman" Hardiman still looks intimidating as ever, but there is also a majestic quality in Harris' interpretation.
Anubis plays a pivotal role in the two Zone of the Enders titles, and its appearance serves as a foil to Jehuty, the protagonists' orbital frame. At the end of the first Zone of the Enders game, Anubis is absolutely invincible and cannot be defeated. In Zone of the Enders 2, its pilot, Nohman, becomes insane. Creator Hideo Kojima's use of the twin Orbital Frames as distorted reflections of one another is similar to his approach to Solid and Liquid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid series.
10000000 has a simple art direction that leaves a lot to the imagination. It's very effective in the game, but it's exciting to see an artist attempt to realize 10000000's full terrifying potential.
The piece comes from DeviantArt user TinTans, and it so impressed the game's creator, Luca Redwood, that he commissioned her to create some professional 10000000-related work for him.
TinTans also did a time-lapse video of the piece, which you can check out below.
