Talent recognizes talent, or at least inspires it in this case. The art director at Sony Santa Monica, the studio behind God of War, has started recreating characters featured in Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For now, each character is getting their own interpretation from Raf Grassetti and the results do not disappoint.
Grassetti has taken to Twitter with his latest pieces of art, titled “Smash Remastered.” These photorealistic pieces look incredible and they range from humanoid characters to more monster-like re-imaginings. Link seems like he would be right at home in The Lord of the Rings and Sonic seems to have gotten the treatment everyone was hoping for in the upcoming live-action movie. Each piece is released daily, so be sure to follow Grassetti on Twitter to keep up to date with the latest entries.
With each new release, another is teased alongside it. At the time of this publication, there are seven characters finished and we can’t wait for more challengers to approach. Who are you most excited to see? For me, I am most looking forward to seeing the re-imagining of Mr. Game and Watch.
