I haven't tried my hand at fan art much over the years but I decided I'd do a couple now.

Here's "Commander Keen in Gargs Attacks!":

on deviantART (I don't use it much but hey)

Edit: Ah, screwing up embedding images, how nostalgic! Just like when I first tried to post about Keen 0 back in the day.

I remember seeing that Yorp art on PixelJoint years ago, can't remember who made it though.

Beautiful work! I really like that Roobar, it reminds me of old times most definitely.

Now I just want to fill his bowl up, poor guy!

Found it (it's made by "big brother" in 2021): https://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/137503.htm

The difference between the raw image and that CRT picture Roobar posted is almost like day and night; it's amazing how it looks so good on a CRT!

I did another quick search in PixelJoint and found a cool mockup, posted by Elfwink in 2022:

Also, I fixed the image links in the last two posts I made on this thread (they're found in the previous page), so people don't have to go onto Twitter to see them. Aside from the first picture (the Christmas one with Keen being chased by a Dopefish), they are all made in 2023 and thus eligible for nomination in Keen Awards 2023! :)

Wow that's great usage of the VGA palette. What I wouldn't give to play a Keen game that looks like this one day... :drool Reminds me strongly of Prehistorik 2's graphics.

Someone (eviltentacle) made that art I found on twitter. Probably a commission for emmxyzzy. I don't know any more details, but looks cool:
