Artist ZedEdge’s making a series of Final Fantasy VII character redesigns, mostly inspired by Big Hero 6 and other recent animated movies.
Characters die and come back to life all the time in Dragon Ball. It’s a pretty bloody series overall and it can be hard to keep track of everything after hundreds of episodes. The pictures of Spanish artist Alberto Cubatas help in that. He visualized all the kills of main characters.
Pixel artist Junkboy reimagined John Carpenter’s classic movie They Live as a cool beat ‘em up game from the early 90s. It’s got all the characteristics of side-scrolling arcade games, complete with breakable windows and smashable cars.
Unlike champions in various MOBAs, StarCraft units don't have any skins or any cosmetic features, so we have to compensate with our imagination. Artist Tamás Gyerman, for example, took a few units from the game and redesigned them to fit a post-apocalyptic world.
I can see myself playing something like pixel artist Kracov's isometric, 2D version of Doom for hours, trying to blow up everything and marvel at all the detailed pixel-explosions.
The purple poisonous Weezing with its connected heads isn't the nicest looking Pokémon out there, but JRCoffron's and Stephen Oakley's fan-piece makes it look like something from Doom or an 80s horror movie. Facing something so grotesque, poison would be the last thing to worry about.
After taking out all the gods in the pantheon, Kratos goes up against some really wild first gen Pokémon in Tuna-Art's fan-piece. Charizard's flamethrower might be too much for him.
Thanks to artist Nina Matsumoto' Dragon Ball X Seinfeld piece, now I can totally imagine Dragon Ball Elaine kicking everyone through walls and yelling "Get Out!", right before Kramer goes Super Saiyan.
The legendary Pokémon Rayquaza is about to crash into a group of flying-types. DeviantART artist Arvalis made a really good job on this. Those tiny animated parts make this version of the serpentine beast totally badass.
I'd trade my Squirtle for these. Artist Juan Arrabal "Dragolisco" Hernández has some really cool re-imagined Pokémon.
Pokémon trainers have a long journey ahead, a post-apocalyptic or at least really dark one, according to kevinbolk's superb gloomy drawing on DeviantART.
With this design, Smash Bros. suddenly looks like a scene from Samurai Jack in Toxodentrail's excellent fan-art.
Flower armor and explosive tails. That's a very creative way to redesign Pokémon as giant monsters from the Monster Hunter series. Arvalis on DeviantART likes to make badass-looking Pokémon and this series he recently started looks very cool.
On artist Sergey Svistunov's Mortal Kombat art, Kabal and Shao Kahn (with Sub Zero hands) look like members of a vicious, post-apocalyptic gang from Mad Max, and not characters of a game with mystic realms and gods.
When not busy with Heroes of the Storm, artist Luke Mancini draws wild fan-art, like this cartoony one with Super Mario, Peach, and Yoshi, who transformed into a beast.
Attack on Titan eyes make everything a lot creepier. Beth Emery, an artist on DeviantART, drew a few mash-ups, and even the cutest Pokémon like Jigglypuff or Bulbasaur would look, well, unsettling with Titan features.
Krang's home, Dimension X from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, is apparently Kirby's Dream Land, or at least that's how artist Tohad imagines it. He's been busy lately with badass mashups of video game characters and different regions of pop culture.
