LTTP: gorgeous, surreal game art by Orioto

It isn’t exactly new, but it’s new to me!

DeviantARTist Mikaël Aguirre’s smudgy, painterly, absolutely surreal game art has gotten some press before, but his latest desktop wallpaper, “Toxic Planet,” is much too gorgeous to pass up mentioning.

Of the piece, Aguirre (AKA Orioto) explains: “It was basically a Nausicaä take at Metroid!” I think it was a success.

  1. I’ve had this exact piece sitting as my wallpaper all weekend. I actually just changed it before I noticed this on my feed. Orioto is fantastic.
