Dogs Playing Pokemon by paperlab Dogs Playing Pokemon by paperlab
We unveiled this piece at the Anime SuperCon this weekend. It was great watching people come over to our table and get a good laugh from it. :) Thanks to everyone who came over to our table to say hi and talk with us.

This is based off the famous "Dogs playing Poker" painting, but with a slight twist. I won't bother listing all the videogame references that are in the image. I'll leave that to you guys to figure out. :D

Well he's the most at a loss, since not only is he human, he also has moral limits.

No prob.

Samus: (to MC) you stay next to me, you're good luck.

Master Chief: I've been told that before (sucks straw).

I don't know how to play, but it did seem fitting that after all the death and carnage they'd just want to have some fun with a bulbasaur (is that even spelt right) or something.

Of course, he's Gordon freakin' Freeman, plus he's had time to get good at Pokemon in between Episode 2 and 3.

Out of the two versions, I think I prefer this one if only because of the irony that no one knew Samus was a chick originally.

That's amazing! It looks very proffessional, and it's pretty funny too. Something about the biggest 1st/3rd person shooter juggernauts all playing Pokemon just cracks me up. You did a great job!

It's the subtle details: the coins from Mario as poker chips, Jack's hand from BioShock as a lamp, Ratchet as a clock, and the Wind Waker promo shot; all of them make a true gaming fan masterpiece.

BTW, who do you think would win? My guess is Samus, considering she's from the same people who made Pokemon...

paperlab Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2009
I honestly think Samus would win. She'd just roll up in a ball and bomb them all to hell.

And then all the guys wearing armor would laugh and brush off the residue from the explosions. Also, since master chief won last game while playing with uno cards, I think he'll win. :P

Lets see I got Samus from metroid grandpa snake from one of the metal gear games, A zombie, read herb and character from resident evil, Coins from Mario, Pokemon cards (Though they are supposed to be playing poker), Grunt from gears of war, pope from Mario, ratchet fro, ratchet and clank. Guy from Half-Life and one of his weapons the grav gun maybe. Did i get that all right?
What I don't recognize is the barial drink in the left the guy with the pistol on the right and the glowy hand up top.

Glowy hand is from Bioshock, Guy with the gun is Nico Bellic from GTA4, there's a green herb somewhere, a Wind Waker painting, and Mk III from MGS4. :)

Nah,but I never thought of that. lol. It's the main character from Bioshock. You pretty much only see his hands in the game, and he has those tattoos on his wrist.
