'Brawl' Art Contest Spawns Expertly Redesigned Cammy, Chun-li and Haggar Piledriving a Shark

When the CG artists who inhabit the Polycount forums direct their creative juices at redesigning the famous fighters of video games like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Killer Instinct, Tekken and more, we're the real winners.

That's because we get to see the polygonal fruit of their labors, which range from radical takes on Mario from Super Smash Bros., Zero from Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and even a spindly, teen-aged Akuma from Street Fighter in the art contest known as "Brawl."

Plus we get to see that fashionably updated Cammy graduate to 3D model status.

Click through the gallery above from some highlights from the recently closed contest, then make your way to the Polycount forums for even more. There are dozens of additional re-imagined fighters and redesigned stages, yours for the ogling right here.
