Binary System Fan Art Gallery – 2016 Tributes

Obviously, 2016 was a tough year in terms of losing celebrities we love. And if you know anything about Binary System, you know we love a good piece of fan art, especially the ones that kick us right in the feels.

This collection is just a tiny portion of the art that pays tribute to a tiny portion of the well-known people who passed away. There’s no way that we can get everybody, but if you have a bit of memorial fan art you’ve found (or made!) please send it over so we can add it.

And geez, cross your fingers that we don’t have anybody else to add to the list in the next three days.

Tech Review: Pogo Connect

While I’m a digital artist, I’ve always been tethered to my desk. Armed with my trusty Sketchbook, Scanner and Wacom, doing digital artwork can be a bit of a chore. While the advent of the Tablet certainly changed the playing field, Pogo has stepped in with the ultimate tool for any digital artist.

I’m referring to the Pogo Connect, a bluetooth pen that connects with your tablet to give you that pressure sensitivity that you’ve grown accustom to with your Wacom.

How does the Pogo Connect stack up to the Wacom? Is this the pen you’ve sought to unchain you from your desk, and become a mobile artist?

Cosplay Calender by Women of Comicbook Cosplay

As we enter the end of this year, it’ll soon become apparent that there’s a whole new year coming up that will need organizing.  In the past, cavemen would carve tallies into the wall to know how long until their next birthday, but that was then, and now that we’re advanced future men, we can tally on calenders of beautiful women dressed as equally beautiful fictional characters.  All thanks to the Women of Comicbook Cosplay (WoCC) mastermind Derek Fuego, who has given us something new to enjoy every month.
