As a celebration of the release for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo’s latest installment to one of the biggest crossovers in entertainment, I decided to make a drawing.

With iconic video game characters, such as Mario, Pikachu, Pac-man, and Sonic the Hedgehog, it was hard for me to pick just who I should draw. Initially, I had a poster sized digital art piece I made featuring every new character joining Smash Ultimate, but I chose to narrow it down to my most anticipated newcomer, Joker from Persona 5.

Inspired by his reveal trailer at the 2018 Game Awards, this art piece is very simple in design. Persona 5, the game Joker originated from, is well known for its stylish aesthetic, using mostly reds, blacks, whites, and grays. Because of this, I limited myself to using those specific colors, hence the simplistic look.
