UPDATE: Since it was sort of a point of criticism, I decided to change up his eyebrows to be closer to his appearance in Rayman Origins/Legends! You can find the original version in my scraps. =)

This is the first entry in my YouTube series, Smashified! Check out my channel to learn more about the series and how you can contribute. =)

First off, one. Single complaint. The bottom right corner of Rayman's eye is the same color as his skin. It bugs me. Now, I love literally everything else about this post. The pose looks great, the hair is perfect, the shading is seamless. Man. And the leak. Oh sure, "the flame pattern wasn't perfect." Oh sure, "the whoosh animation wasn't the same." But by intentionally making the footage look sloppy and unprofessional, it's nearly, if not completely impossible to catch. This is without a doubt one of the best fan made things I've ever seen. Keep up the great work! 👍

I'd normally say that the corner of the eye is reflecting his skin, but judging by the look of the rest of the eye, that's probably not the case...

This looks so real! To me it looks like it could actually be in the game! Rayman looks adorable and the shading is on point. I haven't really seen anything like this on Diviantart before. Though i am kinda mad that the leak was fake, it still looks good. If i tried making this, he would look awkward and he would look like he's saying, "Kill meh now." I love the detail and the little pose he's in. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/> If you worked for the company, (Don't know who made Rayman <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="395" title=":P (Lick)"/>) I bet they would totally accept this. If you make anymore of these in the future, i would look forward to it, just don't make the leak fake. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

Well done! This looks so much like the official artwork! Myself along with the whole internet were fooled by this! The shading and the textures are very well done. I've seen the time lapse and could tell you put hard work in this. Excited to see your future art!

Vision: 5/5 It seemed like you knew exactly what you were doing.

Originality: 4.9/5 The only slight drawback is that this is fanart. It is very good fanart. But the character is not your idea. How you drew it was very original though.

Technique: 5/5 Watching the time lapse, I appreciated how you looked at the other SSB4 trophies to get it as accurate as possible. I also really liked how you did the shoes with the seams and the texture of the clothes.

Impact: 5/5 As I've said before, this is very convincing! With the fake leak, you left me sad knowing this is fact but also in aw that someone can make something like this!

Final Verdict: 4.975/5 A very good piece and a must-see for any Super Smash Bros fan!

While i'm still mad that the leak was fake, i gotta give you some props man! this really had me fooled, this had the whole internet fooled! You surely did a fantastic job on this, you got all the things the smash trophy had correct, the hair, the shoes, even the hood on Rayman's hoodie! as for impact, man was the whole internet talking about this! you truly should work at Nintendo for making graphics because you are the man for the job! So far that's all i have to say, just please next time, do this on April fools day( that's more appropriate. )-Eeveeboy06

I personally was fooled by this on youtube. I lost my mind on how real this looks. I cannot believe you faked SSB4! This looks so good that i believed it was real (just like everyone else on the internet)! It was one of your greatest definitely! One of the best trollings to date. You did it real good to fool me! It is so unbelievable that this got really controversial. You best art yet! You did it so good that I was fooled by your great art! It looks so good that it looks official! Nice! Best! DOPE!!!! Cool!

The good news. He did get into Smash.

The okay news, as a Spirit.
Kiranta's avatar

More Good news, more DLC is being developed. Spirits do not deconfirm a character as each fighter has at least 2 different spirits.

I wish Rayman is a fighter for Smash Bros 5. But this look awesome.
TheSMBZfan1's avatar
Ah, the piece of Art that blew up the Smash community for a day. Still looks great.
santiags101's avatar
Oh well, let's hope if a new Smash game is made, Rayman will be added in as a fighter.
roisepoise101's avatar
yeah about that...bayonetta glasses push 
santiags101's avatar
I said in a new smash game, as in Smash Smash Bros 5.

Bayonetta is still a badass fighter! Don't fuck with the witch!
roisepoise101's avatar
Tell that to Dante after the 16th.

A far more suitable character to put in than Cloud or Ryu.
MechaDeka's avatar
"A far more suitable character than these more famous characters, one with a significant history with Nintendo."
RaymanFan1995's avatar
I do like that they added Ryu, but I still couldn't agree more.
Planetofmonsters's avatar
I wonder if rayman's taunts will be the one where he makes dark lums laugh? :-? (Confused)
