Art- the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
The world of gaming and esports is undoubtedly one of the most influential cultural phenomena in the world today. Its reach spans every corner of the globe and has inspired millions in the form of every medium of content and pop culture, including art. E.S.G. honors this creative expression as we feature a community of talented artists, illustrators, and creatives who have used their vast imaginations to create stunning esports/gaming art (E.S.G.).
In this edition, we look at the work of 20-year-old self-taught graphic designer from Sweden, Rad Studios.
This is probably one of my favorite artworks I’ve made, including my usual space theme as well as mixing it up with the FaZe branding. I call this “Lost in FaZe.” – Rad Studios
Here we have the signature Rad Studios style mixed with FaZe Clan’s branding with otherworldly abstract detail. One of the sickest ambient illustrations in the cosmos.
This is Fortnite “Dark Bomber” themed YouTube banner for the legend himself, FaZe Sway. I feature some of my favorite abstract and colorful looks in this banner. – Rad Studios
I’m no artist, but I feel like one of the truly great qualities of any artist is the ability to stay true to their creative style while equally portraying the vibes and character of someone else. Rad does this flawlessly with his YouTube revamp of one of FaZe Clan’s most prominent members, FaZe Sway.
This is an advertisement I made for G Fuel Energy featuring their infamous “Sonic’s Peach Rings” flavor. When I made this, I wanted it to look like the cans were in some sort of a Sonic world. – Rad Studios
A fitting tribute to G Fuel’s “Peach Rings” and one of the most iconic video game characters, Sonic the Hedgehog! 🔥 I have to go snag me a tub of this flavor with the quickness myself now…
A poster artwork I made for the OG himself, FaZe Temperrr. Giving it that clean and vibrant red look to it. – Rad Studios
One of FaZe’s founding fathers, FaZe Temperrr representing and rockin’ the Radical red.
I’m passionate about art because I see it as a way for me to express my creativity. Creating art in any way really, is like an escape from reality where I can explore new designs and inspire other artists. Some people choose to go for a walk when they’re stressed or take a hot shower maybe, I choose to create art as it calms me down in a way. – Rad Studios
This is also one of my favorite art pieces where I’m using the space theme. I wanted it to look like an astronaut in a video game who’d been lost in space. I call this “Lost in Space.” – Rad Studios
A luminous gaze into the celestial world in another showcase of Rad’s astronomical talent.
FaZe Nikan has a designing background so I figured it would be cool to dedicate a header to his name. Giving it a very colorful and positive vibe since Nikan in my opinion is one of the nicest dudes in the community! <3 – Rad Studios
This tribute to the big guy, FaZe Nikan, embodies his positive spirit with a radiant header that just glistens with peace, love, and positivity.
FaZe Bronny is a pretty new member to FaZe clan and of course, like his father LeBron James, plays basketball. I wanted to give this header an electric and OP theme. – Rad Studios
The crowned prince, Bronny James, is one of the newer members of an impressive collection of superstar FaZe athletes. His electrifying skills on the hardwood are appropriately illustrated in this dynamic header.
This is actually a header I made for myself a while ago. I love nature and sunsets and wanted to give this a look of warmth and wildlife. – Rad Studios
The aesthetic charm that is mother nature itself is wonderfully portrayed in this Rad header — A visual representation of vibrant vibes and idle poetry come to life, and yet another glaring illustration of the talent that is Rad Studios.
