Some seasonal change for desktops
Posted by David on May 3, 2013
It's spring in the northern hemisphere, and that has a tendency to put me in a productive mood. Here's a simple scene I painted to bring the fresh outdoor scenics indoors to my desktop. You're welcome to use it on yours as well, it's large and 16:9.

Final Fantasy XII Redux
Posted by David on April 18, 2013
The concept art featured in today's update to the Final Fantasy XII gallery comes from the Final Fantasy 25th Memorial Ultimania vol. 3 book. The scans used in editing were originally produced by darkwater657, so I'd like to mention a note of credit and thanks for the great scan work and making them available to use.
A bit of thanks to Bit Bonton

Thanks goes out to developer Bit Bonton for providing the artwork for today's Americana Dawn gallery. For more information about the upcoming 16-bit historical RPG, please see the game's official Facebook page.
Cryamore Kickstarter now live
Posted by David on February 3, 2013
Just a heads-up, the Kickstarter campaign to raise funding for development of Cryamore is now underway. The game, as you may have learned from the gallery we featured recently, is a throwback to classic action role-playing games like Secret of Mana and Zelda. The Kickstarter has already met the initial goal, but additional support will open up new possibilities, including console support at the end of that list.
Final Fantasy X art reboot
Posted by David on January 25, 2013
I wanted to add the newer Final Fantasy X art from the Final Fantasy 25th Memorial Ultimania vol. 3 book, but after taking a look at our Final Fantasy X gallery I decided to just overhaul the entire thing. It was one of the first galleries to appear on the site, and consequently the images are small and outdated. Today will be the first of a few updates to replace all the artwork and supplement it with new materials. I'd also like to say thanks to darkwater657 for making her scans free to use. Several of them appear in the gallery.
Creative Uncut welcomes you to add us to your list of time-wasting websites for inspiration. Picasso once said, every child is an artist, the problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. Nine out of ten primary school children will tell you they are creative; they love to draw and paint. By the final year of secondary school that figure is sadly reversed. We forget how to imagine.
Imagination must be fed. An artist with a starved imagination is a palette with no paints. New ideas come from old ideas—the more you fill your palette with existing ideas, the more you can mix and create new ones. CU supports a culture in which people can borrow from the ideas of others. Not to plagiarize from one as a thief, but to borrow and mix from many as an artist. Video games offer an inspirational source for those creative ideas, from the concept board to the final product. We explore the conceptual side. Watermark-free and registration-free.
Artwork updates are made several times a week and can be followed via RSS, Google+, Facebook, or Twitter. Or there's the old-fashioned way, right here via the home page.
