Artist and Overwatch fan Grigory Lebidko has taken Reaper back to the age of the Pharaohs by creating a skin that a lot of fans probably wish was already available in game.
Lebidko said he made the piece in his spare time and was inspired by Mercy’s Winged Victory costume to give Reaper a fantasy skin of his own.
It’s not the first time Lebidko has made impressive Overwatch fan art, earlier in the year he made an impressive revolutionary inspired D.Va skin.https://www.artstation.com/artwork/8QV1Ghttps://www.artstation.com/artwork/8QV1G
Before the release of Overwatch’s newest map, Busan, another artist and fan of the game named Joshua Llorente created an impressive map of his own for the same South Korean city.
Players probably won’t see Lebidko’s skins in game anytime soon, unfortunately, but with BlizzCon right around the corner, there’s sure to be some big Overwatch content and news coming in the months ahead.https://www.artstation.com/artwork/8QV1G
There will also be a lot of awesome fan made Overwatch content leading up to BlizzCon in November, including cosplay, music and all kinds of artwork.
Fan-made content is a big part of what make the Overwatch community so great, and with contributions like this it doesn't show any signs of slowing down soon.
