Be Awed by these Illustrations of Horror Characters Drawn with Cuphead’s Art Style



We all know that Cuphead was one of the best indie games of 2017, so if you haven’t already played it, I implore you to do so immediately.

Artist Matthew Hutchinson was clearly one of the many people who were awed by the 2D run and gun shooter, as he created a series of images depicting famous horror icons as they would look in the world of Cuphead. All of his insanely gorgeous images were shared on his Imgur and Instagram accounts and have been collected in the gallery below. You’ll probably be amazed at how at home the horrendous characters look when drawn with the game’s cel shaded art-style, although Gary Oldman’s Dracula hairstyle will always look ridiculous, no matter how it’s drawn.

Cuphead was developed and published by StudioMDHR and holds a hugely impressive score of 86% on Metacritic. Since it launched on both the Xbox One and PC, it’s gone on to sell over two million copies, so a sequel is looking likely. Although I have to say, looking at these images, I find myself pining for a spin-off horror game set in the Cuphead universe rather than a straightforward sequel. Just imagine how much fun a boss battle against one of these guys would be.

Anyway, let us know in the comments which of Hutchinson’s illustration is your favorite. My money’s on the maniacally grinning Freddy Krueger.
