Not long ago, the internet went nuts over a fake leak that depicted Rayman as a playable character in the Super Smash Bros. roster. The artist behind the prank, Artsy Omni, later revealed that this Rayman artwork was the first in an art series called “Smashified,” where he creates character portraits of fan-favorite characters who, sadly, did not make their way into Smash.

The second entry in this series is none other than Shovel Knight, the hero of the mega-hit indie game of the same name. You can get a preview of Shovel Knight’s character art to the left, but check out the video above to see the character art in progress!

Our Verdict


Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
