EditBest Art Direction

EditCuphead

From IGN's Cuphead Review: Cuphead looks astonishing. Its 1930s animation styleall watercolour backgrounds and surreal, juddering, hand-drawn characterspay peerless homage to Max Fleischer and his ilk, and are perfectly implemented. Somehow it manages to balance dozens of moving elements and a slight rear-projection blur without ever feeling unreadable in even the most frantic moments. Every scene is a masterworkits a near-unbelievable achievement for an art style.
