Check Out this Awesome WWE Old School 8-Bit Fan Art!!

macho man group2

We here at The PractitioNERD enjoy when the worlds of art meet professional wrestling (see HERE and HERE), and this story is no different. Al Creed, a Canadian artist, uses a minimal, old-school (and very 8-bit) design technique to create unique, classic video-game inspired images of WWE and NXT Superstars. Here’s Al to tell you a little more about himself after the break. Also, yes, that IS Macho Man Randy Savage as Bonesaw from 2002’s Spider-Man on the top row, 2nd from the right. OOOOOH YEEEEEAH!!!!

Hey, I’m Al. I am an 8-Bit Artist in that I like to draw things (usually figures from popular culture) in low-resolution pixel format. I call it 8-Bit Art, because it looks like the digital art from 8-Bit video games.

I’ve been watching wrestling since I was 3 years old, and it is my favourite subject to draw. However, I am probably best known for my 8-Bit hockey jerseys that circulated around the Sports Blog-o-sphere (is that still a word?) early last summer.

Other interests include cats, graphic novels, and cryptozoology.

You can follow Al on Twitter here, and check out his Tumblr for more wrestling, movie, and pop culture 8-bit figures and designs. Also, be sure to throw some money his way if you’re so inclined to support all of this awesome-ness.
