Sorting through the multitude of great submissions to our 404 page design contest, I ran into the following excellent entry by someone named RougeCrown, also known as ~aoisora9x at Deviant Art:


Intrigued by his skills, I clicked through to his Deviant Art profile and found a stunning collection of 3D renders of Android and Apple, fighting to the death. I felt that being buried somewhere in the depths of the Deviant Art abyss was no proper way for these pictures to exist - they needed to be seen. By us. Now. So, without further ado, here they are (and you bet we'll be asking RougeCrown to come do some work for us here at AP!):

Bravo, sir RougeCrown. You've got what I would call mad skills, and I am looking forward to seeing more of your work around here.

    I've used one of his for my avatar for XDA for quite some time - his work is exceptional and gives off exactly the right emotion I have towards CRApple Mac-In-Trash!!!

    I like the claymore one, but its up for misguided interpretations in comparison of tech. Other than that, Awesome photos!

    Funny thing is that I use one of those images as my wallpaper on my evo...or at least I did till it died *starts to cry* sorry the event is still fresh for me.

    Images for the new iAmDefeated product launch, perhaps?

    Love the images, anyway!

    Ive seen the 1st 3 pics floating around for quite some time. so many have requested them for wallapapers, BootLogos, or used them as avatars & forum signatures.. interesting coincidence

    This is what the next version of Fruit Ninja will be like.

    Thank you for promoting his work. His gallery is amazing. :)

    Wow. Talk about catching the late train. This has been on the interwebz for ages. Can't believe you're just posting this.

      I've seen some of his work but not everything, and I never knew who it's attributed to, so I wanted to highlight the designer.

    I demand that this guy makes some boot animations :P

    Thanks for this. I used the Andy v Apple in one of my clocks. I never knew who the designer was so it was unattributed. I have already submitted a change to note it.

    Indeed, I have all of his artwork on my Samsung Infuse. Personally I like the Droid of War. It's my current wallpaper. Now that I know who he is, I'll be sure to give credit when credit is due.
