Not content with limited color palettes and pixel counts, deviantArtist Mikaël “Orioto” Aguirre redrew scenes from classic video games, giving them the artistic flare that we could only imagine as kids. Mario, Mega Man, Samus, Sonic and more are rendered in a way that makes their work seem solemn and serious. Being a video game superhero ain’t easy. [deviantArt via Fubiz]
