Overwatch fan and artist Antonio Demico has outdone himself with an amazing Lunar New Year skin concept that is absolutely perfect for Widowmaker.
Demico has made a ton of great Overwatch concept art before, most of which can be found on his Twitter page.
The inspiration for his latest piece of art comes from the Chinese folktale "Legend of the White Snake" (白蛇傳), in which a snake turns into a woman because she falls in love, which Demico thought was kind Widowmaker murdered her own husband after being brainwashed and turned into assassin by Talon, hence the name 'Widowmaker'.
Widow herself looks like a white cobra.
Her rifle has been replaced with the same off white and Serpent patterns that the skin does, along with a cool-looking cobra stock.
Demico even redesigned Widow's back.
Widowmaker got a Lunar New Year skin called "Black Lily" in 2018, but fans probably would not mind if they got another.
Overwatch's Lunar New Year event started on January 24 and goes until February 18, which is the Monday after the first weekend of the Overwatch League
Even though Widow (sadly) did not get a new skin this year, Demico did not stop him from creating one of
What a Legend of the White Snake fanskin? In the legend a snake turns into a woman because she fell in love. Widow kinda did the opposite with her whole husband situation and turning into a cold blooded assassin so I think she fits! Plus, venom mine #Overwatch #LunarNewYear pic.twitter.com/BaijLZ3lk2
