A very creative Fortnite fan has soared to popularity on Twitter and Reddit after sharing some of their incredible creations using Fortnite character models, even attracting the attention of FaZe Clan.
The artwork was first shared to the official Fortnite sub Reddit by u/t-visADL, where it garnered significant attention, before being shared to Twitter.
The first piece to gain spread and spark interest was this brilliant image of ‘Jonesy’, characterized as the “Lord of the no skins”.
FaZe co-owner Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks saw this piece shared to Twitter, and was determined to find it’s creator, and after some digging found their account.
In fact, the creator, Luke Thompson created the account because Banks had been trying to find him and get in touch, and once he did, offered him a job.

Luke has since made more of his impressive works, starting with this incredible rendition of the classic photo of construction workers in New York, building the Empire State.
Next up, was another iconic scene, the illustration of the biblical tale of the last supper, with Jonesy, the Lord of the no skins, taking the place of Jesus.
The details are what is most impressive, with unique facial expressions on each of the characters, and the story of Judas’ betrayal can also be seen taking place.
It’s not only Banks who has been interested in his work, as Thompson reveals FaZe Clan pro player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has also been in touch – as well as Fortnite developers Epic Games.
According to Thompson’s Twitter bio, he is already doing some thumbnail work for Tfue, and Epic may be interested in having him design loading screens or other designs for promotional material.
Other users have since tried to replicate Thompson’s work, but there is definitely a higher quality to his pieces than the inspired pieces.
