Edo period-style Pac-Man fanart

Pop-Monkey presents Pac Man in a style reminiscent of an 18th century print.
I loved the "ancient Pac-Man" concept so much, I was inspired to do another piece. This one is an attempt to merge my style with an old Japanese print style complete with faux-antique paper.

    He’s traded in his cardboard tube for a real sword.

    That’s awesome. We do need some sort of 3D themed Pac Man game.

    I’ll forever think of Pac Man as a guy in a motorcycle helmet.

    It really reminds me of Samurai Jack from Cartoon Network.
