God of War art director puts his spin on Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles

A trio of great art!

God of War art director Raf Grassetti has turned his attention away from the Smash Bros. series to focus a bit more on Sonic and his friends. His latest round of artwork features Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles, all of which are inspired by the Sonic the Hedgehog movie design. I'd say he really nailed the style!

Kirby fan creates a fantastic mural in their living room

Now that's living right!

Kirby superfan PrettyCakeMach has decided to give her living room a major makeover by adding in one massive Kirby tribute. Now one wall of PrettyCakeMach's living room is a monument to Kirby! Makes me feel like I should haul everything out of my office and do the same thing!

Grab a pulp-style poster for The Witcher 3

Absolutely beautiful

We've featured the art of Gibbs Rainock numerous times in the past, and now we have reason to do so again.

Transformers G1 1984 Megatron figurine gets a custom NES Zapper makeover

Now that's bad ass

I think most of us have had a Transformer toy at some point in our lives, but we've never had one like this! Simon Smith has given a Transformers G1 1984 Megatron figurine a makeover in the style of an NES Zapper, and the results are pretty bad ass. It can't actually be used as an NES Zapper, but it sure looks the part!

Pokemon fan shows off his custom Groudon costume in action with a new video

Some seriously impressive work

As requested, here is my Groudon costume in action! from r/pokemon

When Reddit user Blastoise_irl first showed off his custom Groudon costume, fans were blown away. The costume looks good enough to be an official piece used by Pokemon Co. themselves! It's no surprise the costume looks so good, as Blastoise_irl took 1.5 years to make it!

As soon as the first pictures rolled in, fans were eager to see more of the costume. Blastoise_irl obliged by showing off the 1.8m costume in action. Check out the footage above to see Blastoise_irl inside the suit, showcasing just how mobile it all is.

This "fleshy" GameCube is absolutely horrifying

Well...it's definitely different

There have been countless GameCube mods and redesigns over the years, but I don't think there's ever been one quite like this.

Artist iv_art_ has come up with a very unique design for the GameCube, taking its fun, simple aesthetic and turning it into an absolute nightmare. The system has been given a 'fleshy' makeover, complete with some core, bruises, stitches, and more. If this is your kind of thing, you can buy one right now for $92.

Artist sculpts an unbelievable movie-style Sonic the Hedgehog statue with a 3D pen

This guy is unbelievable!

The YouTube gods have gifted me today. I had no idea who Sanago was, but now I'm totally addicted to his channel. He's an absolute master with a 3D pen, creating amazing sculptures, fun projects, and even doing some home repairs with his magic gun and filament.

In a more recent project, Sanago decided to create a statue version of Sonic the Hedgehog, but not just any Sonic. Sanago decided to base his design off of the movie design, which is still measurably different from the Sonic we grew up with. Let's just say that his final results are absolutely astounding. You have to watch for yourself. I promise, you won't regret it!

Blizzard artist gives the Game Boy an Overwatch makeover

This needs to be real

Blizzard artist Rakan Khamash has been spending his free time honing his craft, and also showcasing his love for the original Game Boy. Khamash has worked his magic by coming up with a custom Game Boy design that gives the portable an Overwatch makeover. The concept is absolutely gorgeous, and has me hoping Khamash actually tries to turn this into a real-life project. I bet a real version of this would fetch a pretty penny!

Fan-made 'Ultraswole Pikachu' statue is a thing of beauty

What chu lookin at, bro?

Pokemon Co. has no shortage of Pokemon merch, but sometimes fans have to step in and make creations that Pokemon Co. would never dare to. Case in point, the 'Ultraswole Pikachu' statue you see above, which was created by Reddit user Cloudycucumber.

We're not quite sure how Pikachu got so swole, but the final result is a thing of beauty. Better yet, if you have access to a 3D printer, you can make one of these bad-boys for yourself. Grab all the free files you'll need right here.
