Do You Like Your Favorite Video Game Characters Refined or Cutesy?

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

For more Olly Moss, check out is hardcover book, Silhouettes from Popular Culture, but if you want a little preview of both art styles mentioned in this story, check out some samples after the break! 

Also, Moss was responsible for the awesome alternate box art for the PlayStation 3 exclusive first-person shooter, Resistance 3.
