Many of you reading are now familiar with the “Smashified” series, which takes our favorite video game characters and shows us how they’d look if they were a part of Super Smash Bros. Fans of the series, and of course fans of Smash, have been clamoring for King K. Rool to appear as a playable character, and Smashified has made that dream (almost) come true.
This piece was not made by the series’ creator, Artsy Omni, but rather Smashified‘s first additional artist, Chris Szczesiul. And if fans’ dreams come true, it’s just a taste of what we’ll see if King K. Rool joins the battle as a DLC fighter.
Check out the video above for the “making of,” or head over this way if you’d like to see the timelapse painting without commentary.
