Video game characters come in all shapes and sizes, but Ben Camberos has managed to assimilate some of geekdom's most popular individuals into his portfolio of energetic cartoon-style artwork. The resulting images are fun and cute, as you get to see game badasses as they'd look on children's TV programming.

Ben Camberos is an illustrator and graphic designer and he readily admits that comics, anime and Saturday morning cartoons are major influences on his work. It definitely comes across to viewers as Camberos often employs a cel-shaded style that gives his images that clean American animation look.

Video games are important in Camberos' life, as he frequently gets commissioned to illustrate game-related content. Some franchises he's already dabbled in rendering include Metal Gear Solid, Street Fighter and Marvel Vs. Capcom.
