Sumi-e painting is a Japanese style of brush painting, and illustrations using the style have a distinctive look. DeviantArt user MyCKs has applied the painting technique to characters from Legend of Zelda but also to some familiar faces from Mass Effect, Tomb Raider, and Lord of the Rings. She’s given the characters cool, samurai-inspired outfits to make them look extra awesome. I’d love to see a cosplayer take on the Zelda outfit pictured above.
See more of the style after the break.
