We are used to seeing our favorite video game characters as blips, pixels, polygons, hand-drawings, and examples of the “uncanny valley,” but British graphic artist extraordinaire Olly Moss has put together two more example of how we can see our pixellated idols: silhouettes and 3D-paper dolls. Moss — an avid gamer — took some of the most iconic gaming heroes and did two things with them:
1) Created some “high-class”, old money-looking classically styled silhouettes
2) Put together some precious and adorable paper doll-like drawings
