Ever since Overwatch was released earlier this year, people can’t. stop. talking. about it. There are live streams left and right, viral fan arts, cosplays, not to mention the repetitive sharing of the game’s gorgeous cinematic trailers. Overwatch became a hit because of its eccentric roster of characters, amazing pixar-ish graphics and its gameplay which – admittedly – we’ve seen more than enough of. But hey, who’s complaining? It’s awesome!
Overwatch deserves its popularity and its growing fandom. And yes, some people who love the game do stand out because of their talents – aside from being godlike gamers of course. Enter a humble cosplayer/crossplayer/artist from the Philippines named Miguel Mercado, otherwise known on Deviant Art as “merkymerx“. He’s amazing. Check out his artworks below! (And don’t forget to visit his Deviant Art if you’re interested in seeing these masterpieces in HD).
Miguel Mercado, like most (if not all) artists out there, loves to explore different styles. But what I find most captivating about his pieces is the amount of heart and emotion he puts into the characters’ faces. His art will continue to inspire and amaze others presently and in the future. Keep rocking, merkymerx!
