God of War Art Director Recreates Cuphead and Mugman in Lovely 3D Artwork


Previously the God of War Art Director Raf Grassetti posted 3D art on his official Twitter page of two famous Cuphead villains, King Dice and The Devil. Today he posted another gorgeous piece in the same vein: 3D art of the protagonists Cuphead and Mugman:

His reasons behind making them such artistic tributes was due to him completing the game with his son. It’s incredible how these 3D renders manage to look just like claymation, which gives the piece this excellent old school vibe. You can follow him on Twitter and Instagram to see his new art pieces as they come along.

Since the original announcement of Studio MDHR’s Cuphead, everyone was blown away by it’s amazing 1930’s cartoon style. Upon release, the game was met with critical acclaim from both industry members and consumers alike. So it’s no surprise that Grassetti would be taken enough by the title to create his own versions of the characters.

Cuphead is currently available on Xbox One, Windows PC, Steam and most recently, the Nintendo Switch. We found Cuphead to be a perfection addition to the platform. Studio MDHR announced last year at the Xbox E3 Briefing The Delicious Last Course DLC for the game. The DLC was planned for a 2019 release at the time but the studio announced a few weeks ago that it will be pushed back to 2020 to give the team more time to finish without having to deal with crunch.

You can purchase a Cuphead digital download code for Nintendo Switch for $19.99. You can also purchase the game on the Nintendo eShop, Xbox Store, Windows Store, and Steam.

God of War Art Director Tweets Out Cool Kratos Cosplayer Carrying the Head of Mimir


God of War‘s Art Director Raf Grassetti tweeted out an interesting status update from SDCC that should get fans of the highly acclaimed title excited. We have a female Kratos cosplay, which is already awesome, paired with the recreated (and naturally fake) head of Mimir:

In God of War, Mimir is a God of Wisdom who, after Odin accuses him of aiding the giants, binds him to a tree that even Thor’s hammer can’t destroy and tortures him everyday for 109 years. Kratos and his son Atreus came to him and agreed to cut his head off and bring it to someone who can reanimate him. After they succeed, the father and son carry the living head with him through the rest of their journey.

It seems the cosplayer gets that detail very right since she’s literally wearing him. The sculpture even sports one of the Bifröst crystal eyes (the other being torn out by Odin) that Mimir still uses. It’s always fun to see game developers have fun and mingle with the fans, especially when they notice cool things like this in the process.

This is hardly the first Kratos cosplay, as the talented Alex Wolf debuted his own strong rendition of the iconic gaming character as he recreates memorable moments from the game.

In some exciting news, Sony Santa Monica has set the gears into motion as they begin the hiring process for the next God of War installment. They’re specifically looking for those with “knowledge of God of War.”

This year marks the one year anniversary of God of War‘s release and Sony has been celebrating in style. The devs released a video thanking fans for their continued support of the game, rewarding them with a free dynamic PS4 theme. There’s also the recent “One Year Later” trailer.
