Airbrush artist switches from naked ladies to Dreamcasts

Dreamcast is a great-looking machine. No arguments. But is it a better canvas than a naked lady? German artist Torsten Rachu has gone to work on both, so it's up to you to decide. Here are the Dreamcasts in question:

Above: Code Veronica, Shenmue, Ferrari 355 Challenge and Virtua Tennis - great choices and superb artwork

My personal favourite? This Jet Set Radio one, complete with a sweet picture of Gum - a character we need to see again in something more than a tennis/racing game.

Above: Brilliant. The artist has even blurred the background image behind the sharp foreground and text

And here is a lady, who looks just a little annoyed:

The man is clearly talented and his work doesn't stop at Dreamcasts/women. He also does mobile phones, PCs and loads of different consoles. You can see them all on his website, which is probably NSFW.

I would have a go at painting my DC, but... well, it's just so pretty anyway.

    I absolutely agree the guy is talented, but I would really not want this done to any of my systems. I am too much of a traditionalist with my systems. Hell, I still refuse to use a top-loading NES, sticking with toaster NES'es instead. Of course, I had to make that plural because toasters die so easily. P.S. please don't say anything good about Jet Set Radio. The game was shit and it pains me when I see people openly lie by praising it.

    He should airbrush a dreamcast onto a naked lady.

    I had no idea the president of the Patrick Swayze fanclub also did airbrushing

    The stuff he did on consoles looked like it turned out a lot better than his other stuff, maybe cause they don't move or are plastic?

    The Shenmue one is well smart. Airbrushing always reminds me of fairground rides with badly illustrated portraits of Beyonce and Usher etc. Where do you think Carnies learn this artform?

    Whoa I didn't know the guy from Duran Duran did airbrushing?

    Ferrari one's my favourite. @Grif - Agreed, lol.

    God he could have found a better model surely... I'd rather give one to the dreamcast... actually no that would probably hurt.
  • Grif - September 23, 2010 12:20 p.m.

    Find a nicer lady to airbrush.
  • Darkmessiah24 - September 23, 2010 12:10 p.m.

    That's bloody amazing.

    Love the Shenmue one.
