Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerdy art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every nook and cranny of the Interwebz. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly feed of nerd art.
On with the dump!
ABOVE: Nintendo would be wise to “borrow” from the HeavyMetalHanzo and this sweet Skyrim/Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword mash-up he’s put together. Link has been screaming at everything for years, just thinking about hearing “FUS RO DAH!” squeaked out like a tiny little mouse and you’ve got an instant console smash hit.[Geek Tyrant]
Hit the jump for the Oscars, Ryan Gosling as The Rocketeer and Bill f-ing Murray!
It’s the award season and the biggest awards show of the year is right around the corner, the 85th annual Academy Awards. Inspired by the Best Picture winners, from 1927 through 2012 and based on Gjon Mili’s 1949 Life magazine photographs of Pablo Picasso this tribute to the award show by Olly Moss can be yours. For all you hardcore movie lovers out there try to flex your nerd brain by naming each best picture winner without cheating, go ahead. [Geek Tyrant]
We never would have expected Hellboy to be a Batman fan. A team effort with pencils by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, inks by Francesco Francavilla and coloring by Euan Mactavish, you can imagine this as a setting just before Gotham by Gaslight Batman swoops in for a meeting.

Sue Storm is arguably the best mother in Marvel Comics. loving, kind, but if you do something to piss her of you better have some kind of resistance to invisible women kicking your ass. Nobody does her better, drawing-wise then the talented hand of Adam Hughes. [Comics Alliance]
NBC may be months behind on their airing the long-awaited, lukewarm episodes of Community, but the artwork of Ben Deguzman continues to live on heroically. Here, the Greendale seven as the Justice League, Ben has fitted everyone perfectly to a hero, being bang on with Abed’s Batman. It’s almost like he’s watched the show. [Geek tyrant]
Featured as the cover to the Star Wars Insider, the official Star Wars fan magazine, artist Roberto Campus created a fitting tribute to the famous Uncanny X-Men cover by John Byrne. Both share similar features to one another, but this is one of the best ones out there thanks to the force. [Deviant Art]
Never trust the lady with a high-power rifle, especially when it’s Tom Hodges‘ version of The Baroness holding said rifle. [Herochan]
Ryan Gosling as The Rocketeer, someone at Disney needs to get onto this as soon as possible. A fan-made promotional poster by Shaun Watson, this is just one of many the United Kingdom resident has crafted for the stars of today. Maybe in some alternate universe Gosling is actually The Rocketeer, breaking hearts in between his many post Mickey Mouse Club appearances. [XombieDIRGE]
You’ve probably seen many of these as highly detailed statue by the talent crew of craftsman at Kotobukiya, but they’re all based on one individual’s talented work. This version of Supergirl for the Marvel Bishoujo line is just one of the many by Yamashita Shunya, who has crafted many of the pieces currently sitting on your shelves and if not go get yourself one.

“He slimed me.” Three words of legend thanks to Bill Murray. In our continuing support of “FebruMurray” we give you Ghostbusters‘ Dr.Peter Venkman. Created as part of Gallery 1988′s Bill Murray tribute show “Please Post Bills” artist Jason Edmiston crafted the true meaning of the month of love: getting slimed by a Class 5 non-terminal repeating phantasm. And a real nasty one at that. [Deviant Art]
