Video Games Get Vectorized

by

Check out these awesome vector art variations on classic arcade game characters.

Vector Mario by Philipp Lenssen

Game enthusiast Philipp Lenssen took partial screenshots from famous arcade games and ran them through VectorMagic, a nifty online bitmap-to-vector conversion tool, then enlarged them to exaggerate the line-art effect.

Vector Pac-Man by Philipp Lenssen

I’m so used to seeing all these gaming icons in their traditional pixel block form, it was really cool to see them reinterpreted in a way I never imagined.

Vector Donkey Kong by Philipp Lenssen

The only thing cooler would be a MAME video filter that would actually let you play the games in their vector form.

You can check Philipp’s entire collection of vectorized video game art over on Google Blogoscoped.
