Marker Art #27: Rampage

Rampage came out for the original Nintendo Entertainment System in 1988 and was based on the arcade game from 1986. In it, you live out your giant monster dreams as you attack cities all over the world trying to smash their buildings into piles of rubble. The NES version let you play as Ralph (a giant wolf), Lizzie (a giant reptile), or my personal favorite, George (a giant gorilla).

I spent hours playing this game as a kid with a friend who seemed to have all the games. To this day, I’m convinced that we completed it in its entirety on a day when we suddenly felt compelled to see how far we could get. At about 2 and a half hours long, I’m surprised we had the attention span for it!

Nonetheless, the game left an impression on me, and I was certainly drawn to its arcade counterpart if I ever happened upon it. Below details my latest pixel project featuring George from Rampage!


After finding my template, I started with the blue bricks of the building. I actually screwed this part up twice and had to start over both times! Markers are not forgiving.
Next, I filled in George’s innards.
His fur followed.
I outlined each figure with black before coloring it in so I didn’t accidentally draw over what I already did.
The final product! I bought new black markers specifically for these types of projects. Turned out great!
