Get ready for a trip down memory lane and for the nostalgia to come flooding back after you see the work of New York-based illustrator Andrés Moncayo who recently entered the realm of 8-bit video games with the ambition of bringing them right into the 21st-century, the result of which is pretty damn amazing.
Focusing on some of Nintendo’s most iconic videos games, from Punch-Out to Duck Hunt, Moncayo loads screenshots from the games in Photoshop and then sets about giving them a modern makeover, manipulating the games shadows, highlights as well as softening the games textured and pixelated look through more modernised illustrations in the background and yet that retro vibe remains.
