Renaissance Superheroes and Star Wars characters

How about we take some of our favorite superheroes and Star Wars characters, and give them the ol’ Renaissance makeover? The result is this awesome collection of photographs, which are actually almost like beautiful paintings. Check them out!

Photographer Sacha Goldberger created this series of awesome photographs of Renaissance superheroes in collaboration with costumers, cosplayers, make-up artists and hair stylists. And we must say, the result is incredible! The quality is so good, that at first we thought the faces of the superheroes were photoshopped to look like their modern 21st century counterparts.

Check out the pictures below to see the superheroes, Fantasy and Star Wars characters we know so well. All in the style of the contemporary painters of the Flemish school. We especially love how The Joker is an uncanny realistic representation of Heath Ledger’s Joker. And of course, who can resist the awesome R2D2 and C3PO in their Renaissance version.
