Valve artist Max Aristov has been experimenting with some high-polygon-count images for Dota 2 characters, and the results look like something you could buy as real-world sculptures or miniatures.






Even the “unpainted” images look amazing. That said, I’d hate to think of what kind of graphics card I’d need to view these kind of images in a real game.

You can see Aristov’s whole gallery here, and props to Kotaku for the discovery.
