It's been a while since I've produced a controller illustration. I am trying to wrap up remaining artwork for the OpenEmu application so we can finally release this thing to the public! (no, no release date... only crazy people set a release date in open source software!).
I am mostly happy with this, I will probably tweak this like everything else right up until release as my OCD will never let me see anything as complete.
I think it is in a good enough state to upload to Dribbble and see if you guy think this looks like you remember?
(also, thanks to @buckwilson who's Game Gear graphic was a good help in producing mine - was great for color tweaks and reference)
UPDATE: Wondering with this quick test - I might tone down some of the blacks but… wondering if it needs more contrast?

Sonic for days at a time : )
That thing was a real battery sucker
Nice! Looks really good. Man, I totally had the Super Wide Gear accessory. That screen was huge!
"Columns"! man, for some reason seeing this reminds me of the TurboExpress and and the LYNX.
Yeah, this is awesome! If anything, maybe a little more grit to the plastic.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Can't wait! Looks great :)
GG Shinobi was the best!
Like x 1000!
Man, this puppy reminds me of some good ol' gaming times.
The display was so crisp and bright, blew the gameboy away.
Oh, and great work by the way :)
Just brought me to a place far away! Thanks!
Awesome sauce. Looks better than my original. Great job!
I bought a game gear with birthday money. Then I got angry because I couldn't pull off a finishing move in Mortal Kombat so I punched it.
And cracked the screen :(
So good, memories!
So beautiful. That thing was literally a large portion of my childhood. Thanks for the memories.
Thanks all... this one was fun.
Need to step away from it for a day or two and look at it with fresh eyes. Think I can still mess around with brightness and contrast a bit.
Anyone ever have the TV tuner? I remember when GameGear and GameBoy seemed to compete with the maddest most insane accessories.
This brings back some very fond memories. Drawn to perfection. The artwork you've done for OpenEMU has been nothing short of incredible.
Outstanding work on this and all the stuff you've done on OpenEmu.
Awesome stuff, congrats
AH! many fond memories of sonic the hedgehog.
I feel bad, I never owned one of these. Yet, I did have a good network of friends growing up that we would sometimes swap systems for a weekend... I played the shit out of Sonic and Donald Duck on this thing!
still have mine!
I just found my gamegear last month, I'm 26 now, I got it for Christmas the year after it came out, I still remember jumping up and down screaming "THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIIIIFFFEEE AAAHHHHH!!!"
1991 wwwooo! Marble Madness, hardest game ever! Jurassic Park, also awesome. Nice nostalgic graphic
