‘Shop Contest: Happy National Pencil Day, Winners!

Last week I challenged you, fine folks, to add some pencils to the world of video games. It was National Pencil Day and it felt appropriate to celebrate. But now the holiday has passed and I’ve got all these pencils. Thanks, I guess?

Our winning image this week was created by Neuroplastique II who reimagines a popular character, but with a pencil for a head. This is some amazing artwork and also would make a great reboot for poor Earthworm Jim.
