Artist Turns Gamertags Into Works Of Art

Gamertags are a gamers main form of identification online.  Now they can also be the key to an awesome piece of artwork, too.

Artist Ave Volkov recently turned to Reddit and Imgur with an offer that seemed too good to refuse.  Gamers share a friend’s gamertag along with a story about them and he turns it into a masterpiece.

It turns out, he wasn’t kidding – the artwork is superb.

Check these out:

Redsoul is my personal favorite but each looks pretty awesome.  It would be interesting to read the story to accompany each piece, to better understand some of the influences that helped to craft the gorgeous pictures.

Ace Volkov is still taking requests, so if you’re interested, hit him up now on Imgur or Instagram.  You can also support his incredible work on Patreon.
