Back in January, we featured a handful of art pieces from God of War art director at Sony Santa Monica, Raf Grassetti. These epic illustrations brought to life some of the characters from the Super Smash Bros. series, as well as a couple of fighters we see within the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise.

Grassetti has continued to put together Smash Bros. character art and has since shared numerous pieces on social media. Today we've got more top-notch, gritty Super Smash Bros. characters for you to enjoy.

It looks as though Grassetti aims to illustrate several of the most popular characters from the series. One tweet says "23 down! Still have a lot to do," and another reads "Thanks for hanging in there if you were waiting for more Smash art, I’ll most likely be hitting the more famous ones this round of characters," which means there's still more to come.

"For those who haven’t been following this is a series of sketches I started early this year," Grassetti wrote on Instagram. "I’ve been trying to do one a day to improve my skills, have some fun and give something back to the game community. These are quick zbrush sketches with photoshop painting. Let me know if you have any questions about the process. I’m having a lot of fun making these so thanks for all the support ❤️"

The batch of images we have featured here include Mario, Luigi, Wario, Yoshi, Bowser Jr., Ridley, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Ganondorf, and several others.
