Post a classic loading screen

Post by HalcyonDaze00 » Tue Aug 19, 2014 5:37 pm

Following on from the success of the classic covers thread, lets see some of your fave loading screens (that were usually a million miles away from the awesome covers! :D )

It's only a bit of fun so not bothered how many you link up but may be best to stick to two or three per post so everybody gets a chance to post some up without 20 being taken in one go:

Pretty much anything by Ste Pickford. A great 8bit artist. :D

The Usagi loading screen is actually based on an actual piece of art by Stan Sakai called "A Quiet Meal". You can see a print of it here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mayhemers ... 0478145089
