Artist Ashley Davis, of Once Upon A Pixel fame, recently kicked off a Tumblr specifically for her illustrations of video game characters. The market for video game fanart seems over-saturated, but her blog has a twist: at No Marios Allowed, she only draws figures who "don't get to be under the spotlight too often."

That means no Mario (hence the blog title), Zelda, Metroid, Sonic, Portal, Pokemon, Mega Man, Street Fighter, and other series that have been covered to death. Instead, we get wonderful pieces for Sparkster, Diablo, Monster Rancher 2, Guardian's Crusade, Monster Tale, Tengai Makyou: Ziria, and Milon!

Davis is selling prints for a few of her illustrations here, and she also takes requests for ignored characters you want to see drawn. Having collaborated with her before for a Famicase project, I can say she's a wonderful person to work with -- you should definitely consider her for commissions!
