For The Fans is a series where we put the spotlight on creators big and small. Anyone that produces gaming related content such as; Artists, Musicians, YouTuber’s or Twitch Streamers will find a home here.
Get your taste buds at the ready as ToniJade has recreated characters from your favourite games in cupcake form! The artwork featured above showcases characters from Smite, Pokemon and League Of Legends. You won't find these cupcakes salty because they are far too sweet.
I got a chance to talk one-on-one with ToniJade about her work and what being an artist means to her.
How long have you been creating artwork?
I've been drawing and doodling since I was in school but started to create fan art for the last couple of years. As I started playing more games I really enjoyed drawing the characters and making them into my own creations.
What format/style do you mainly practice?
I have always been more comfortable drawing by hand, whether it be with a pencil or paintbrush. I have been creating a lot of digital art lately.
What would be one tip you would give to other artist?
I found that starting out is hard work but I kept at it, and I found it's important to be true to yourself and create what makes you happy, not what you think people want to see. Not everyone will like your work but there will be people who love it. Never give up.
What is your favourite piece you have created?
I can't really say I have a favourite piece that I've done but I can say that I love doing colorful, fun and unique art ....or just turning everything into Cupcakes.
Which artists or games inspire you?
Lots of games have inspired my work, mostly the beautiful indie games that I play, but I would have to say that my main game is Smite.
You can find more of ToniJade’s work over on The Wandering Artworks Facebook page.
