Wii U Owners Are Creating Some Amazing Animal Crossing: New Leaf Fan Art

By Eugene . March 28, 2014 . 4:32pm

Following the Zelda contest,  Nintendo conducted an Art Academy: Sketch Pad contest for Animal Crossing: New Leaf on Miiverse. The winners have been chose, and the pieces you see below were all created within the Art Academy app. The the was to cover one of the four seasons in Animal Crossing.


Co-director for Animal Crossing: New Leaf Aya Kyogoku helped pick out the winners, which were simply spread over the seasons rather than ranked. Since Spring is here(ish), though, let’s start off with those first.

Autumn’s styles below show off some of the complexities you can pull off in Art Academy: Sketch Pad. Personally, I was blown away by the Halloween shot below:

Finally, Winter has an adorable collection of shots that make you feel warm inside even when it’s cold outside:
