Beautifully Minimalistic Video Game Character Posters

March 11, 2015


This is a series of beautifully minimalistic video game posters created by DeviantARTist Noble--6. Me? I am a solid Ignoble--10. This is Metroid here, but there's Halo, Half-Life, Zelda and Super Mario ones after the jump. You know, sometimes I wish I was a better graphic artist. Sadly, I was only gifted with the ability to paint WITH WORDS. "You're not even very good at that." I am bad at everything. When we took that career test in high school to see what sort of careers we might be qualified for and want to pursue, you know what I got? Panhandler's assistant. Basically I should be a cardboard sign.

Keep going for the others.





Thanks to carey, who wants prints of all these so she can have the coolest office in the building. Me? I spend most of my time at work in the last bathroom stall in the men's room.

    As soon as I saw the Samus one, I thought, "How great would a Metroid game be if it had the same art style as the silhouette side scrolling games like Limbo?"

    The Half Life 2 one is great. Too bad Valve sucks.

  • Pretty.

  • MalAntagonist

    I wouldn't call these "minimalist". There is a lot of detail in there.

    Perhaps "monochromatic" would be a better description.

    ok so these are basically complete ripoffs of Marko Manev and his style that he's been doing for years

    That applies to almost anything art related... your way of looking at it is incredibly ignorant. These kinds of designs have been forever and the person you listed is not the originator...

  • Noble-6

    The only poster's of Manev's that I had seen prior to making these were his LOTR and Star Wars original trilogy sets. His work is outstanding but the resemblance to this particular set is coincidental. Usage of minimal colors, silhouettes, and fields with logos is pretty common across many poster artists. Go to any poster sharing site such as or and you'll find many visually similar styles from various artists.

    I'm curious what you used to make them? If you can reveal it.
