Not too long ago, a fan of Epic Games and People Can Fly’s multiplayer sandbox survival title Fortnite designed a fine-looking Black Panther skin influenced by the suit that T’Challa wears in the successful Marvel superhero movie. Not to be outdone themselves, a couple of twin graphic designers known as The Sneaky Bros have taken inspiration from popular films to create mock-ups of potential skins modeled after characters from V for Vendetta and The Big Lebowski.
As seen below in The Sneaky Bros’ concept art for their crossover skins, both V from V for Vendetta and The Dude from The Big Lebowski get the Fortnite Battle Royale treatment, with the former being dubbed “Masked Martyr” and the latter called “Duder Looter.” What’s more is that both of the designs for the characters’ pickaxes draw from themes and props found within the films, with V having a rose affixed atop a knife, while The Dude’s is built around one of his favorite pastimes – that is, bowling.
For those unaware, this isn’t the first set of pop culture-inspired skins that The Sneaky Bros’ have dreamed up for Epic Games to include in Fortnite Battle Royale, as the two have also created Terminator and Breaking Bad concept art for potential characters as well. Of course, considering the fact that all of the aforementioned fan-made skins could get tripped up in licensing issues, there’s a high chance that none of them will ever see the light of day.
Nevertheless, Epic Games and People Can Fly recently incorporated a John Wick-styled skin, dubbing it “The Reaper,” which has opened the door for even more possible film and television crossover skins to come in Fortnite. While the companies have yet to even come close to intimating that more movie-inspired skins will be added, it’s difficult for one not to admire the talent and passion The Sneaky Bros and other fan designers in the community have for Fortnite Battle Royale.
Fortnite is available now in early access for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
