    Lightbulb In need of pics, of fellow gamers!

    Hey everyone, I need your help for a school project for my drawing concepts class. The diff thing about this class, when compared to a reg fig drawing class, is that we experiment with designing the fig w a bg, and we paint on top of drawings, using collage, diff mediums, and we look at tons of diff artists. Anyways, one of our ongoing projects is to pick a sub culture of L.A and draw/paint from photographs. I chose....teens/people that play video games. So what I need to do is take pics of friends playing em and im going to this weekend, but it would be nice to see if you guys could help me out here and take pics of yourself, or friends so I could use them for this project. Oh, one of the main things, is pushing things further than u normally would, in class we push gesture, and expression, just last week, we were looking at kent williams' artwork, and incorporating things from his work into ours, sooo... if you guys/gals can exaggerate things w/ expressions, body language, mood, etc... I'd appreciate it.

    Another thing is that since we paint/draw on diff. surfaces, Im going to scan and print diff pages of vid game manuals and books(i.e the map from the first Zelda game, mario, etc...) to draw ontop of, sort of to tie the whole thing together. So if anyone has any cool manuals, or game related things that would serve as a cool paper, send em my way.

    If you can help me out in anyway, I'd appreciate it.

    p.s I'll show you fellas the type of stuff we've been doing in class soon

    Thanks!

    I would help out if I could. but no digital camera no scanner and no beer make I0N someting something...as for a suggestion on what you should put in try to get some metal gear drawings in there. I always liked the style in those drawings. sorry cant be of more help. make sure you post up your final piece, sounds like it would be crazy. side note try to represent gamers as we are, not the stereotypical nerds
    bad is good and good is only okay...

    i still need your help!

    I took some pics of my friends playing games, but I need more.

    I'll look on the net for pics, but I'm not getting much results. Does anyone know of any sites where I can find pics of gamers?
