One thing that everyone can agree on is that video games are a new art medium, but what happens when art inspires art? We get some pretty cool designs that sometimes tug at our heartstrings and make us remember an adventure we had with a friend or an underground city we escaped. Let's take a look at some of these pieces of art.

First we have rings that were inspired by the video game Portal
. These were designed by Chris Myles and can be found at his shop here: http://www.shapeways.com/shops/ammnra

Next we have a a fan favorite, Super Mario Brothers 3
. Mario, drawn in his raccoon suit, was created by artist Mike Mitchell. He created the artwork for a show at the Gallery 1988 Melrose

Next we have some awesome animated artwork depicting a scene from The Legend of Zelda.
This was created by Daniel Bressette.

The last piece today is not video game related, but is still an awesome piece of fan art. A beloved TV show, Firefly
is arguably one of the best TV shows created. The show never had a chance when Fox decided to ruin it, showing the first season out of order. Artist Ian Leino created an awesome print shown below and has made it available as mugs. You can find out more here: http://shop.ianleino.com/product/serenity-sake-sake-glass
