Samuel Deats paints gorgeous pieces of digital art, filled with videogame heroes and fearsome fantasy monsters. But he also injects a wonderful sense of humor into some of his pieces, including a few that pay tribute to gamer girls.

Deats explains that his more caricatured gamer girl series is inspired by J.C. Leyendecker and Norman Rockwell's Saturday Evening Post illustrations. Just as those pieces depicted images of modern life of the era, so do these—just in that classic style. His larger gamer girl digital painting was created for a piece in Boston's The Phoenix about what attracted one woman to violent videogames.
