Bioshock Valentine's by batman-n-bananas Bioshock Valentine's by batman-n-bananas
Oh Bioshock...how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

Made this for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day <3
...can't be dealing with any sort of sentemental, lovey dovey drivel unless its geek/cult inspired! :D

The original idea was to re-create one of the advertising posters from the game itself, but couldn't find anything that related enough to valentine's day. Thus I made my own in the same art deco style, with of course layers of rust, water damage and dystopian mutiny.

Art deco design adapted from:

:) thankyou very much!

This was such fun to make due to the fact Bioshock has such an amazing style,
have you seen the trailer for Bioshock infinite yet? ...could be perhaps even more incredible :eyepopping:

really cool poster design! Love Bioshock, even though I never played it, but I loved the environment, and just well, it was too cool! :D

Just really love the style! Wonderful work!

All the artistic goodness of Bioshock, but with the added benefit of not having to sit in front of a duff game to see it!

I'd be careful how you speak about Bioshock on this page, there are a lot of people who may disagree with you ;) lol

Anyways what was wrong with it??

Great atmosphere, great back story, great graphics...

Rubbish everything else. Too simplistic, too few enemies, too repetitive. And even if the FPS stuff wasn't a boring mess, it wasn't the best way of taking advantage of all the cool stuff. Something slower or more cerebral would have been a lot better...

I got the LE version on the day it came out. I was rather disappointed with it, to say the least.

I love the idea of untraditional greeting cards. And I love it even more since it's a subtle reference to Bioshock!

You should consider offering it as a print :)

Thanks very much :D

Only problem with the prints is that the resolution is really low because I only needed it in a small size.
Would really need to re-do it to get it up to print quality... lol dunno if i have the time or patience!

This is beautiful. This looks, straight out of Rapture, I'm so impressed with this. Its retro and fresh and fully of Rapture's Art Deco style.


If my girlfriend made that for me, I would be very very happy and proud! Bet he loved it!

Thankyou :D I've been a big fan of art deco since well before Bioshock, so when that came out I was sooo excited to play it! Good to do justice to such an awesome looking game!

..and yeah he liked it, didn't get me anything though so I'm still a little bitter lol

Actally I didn't know anything about Art Deco before I playd Bioshock! I was doing a glass course and had to do some research and so picked the game up knowing it had Art Deco elements and I loved it!

I bet he liked it, if I were him I would put it proudly on display! Shame he didn't do anything in return though!
