One of the truly frustrating aspects of discussing old school games, both the originals and those inspired by them, is the moving target of what constitutes "good" gaming art. For some, nothing less than homages to art from three decades ago can ever be good; for others, anything that demonstrates even the slightest connection to what has come before will never suffice. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised by this diversity of opinions, since there's never been a consensus on such matters. I mean, even back in the early '80s there were people who didn't like Erol Otus (and still don't).
So, rather than trying to come to any conclusions regarding what makes good gaming art in any universal sense, what I want to know is: what piece of art, produced in the last five years, do you consider a particularly effective piece of gaming art and why? Just stick to that question and nothing else, least of all criticizing someone else's choice of what they consider good. The point of this question is simply to learn what my readership likes and why.
