Cuphead is tough, devious, and downright unfair at times, but it’s also absolutely beautiful. Studio MDHR’s animated love letter to the Fleischer-era of cartoons is gorgeous to watch in motion, with love poured into every frame and the lively characters jumping out of the screen. So, it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that there’s a bucketload (or cupload?) of Cuphead fanart, and we’re gathering the best we can find for this guide.
Just before we dive into this list, we have a huge library of Cuphead guides ready for fans, covering just about everything you could want to know. Head on over to our articles covering Cuphead bosses, Cuphead plush, Cuphead Mugman, Cuphead Devil, Cuphead characters, and more.
Let’s dive into our Cuphead fanart guide.
A delightful addition to the dynamic duo, Ms Chalice is a fun character to control in Cuphead, and she’s also as full of charm as her cup-headed chums. Boiled_walrus captures the kooky energy of Cuphead perfectly, and Ms Chalice is the star of this fantastic piece.
Personally, Cuphead is creepy enough for me already. But if you want to push the character into the uncanny valley, this sinister art from Lucasfalcao is a fantastic 3D piece that gives the character a dark edge.

If you’re unfamiliar with Raf Grassetti, go and follow the artist now. Raf’s credits include work as a character designer on God of War (2018) and God of War Ragnarok, but they also produce ‘fan’ art in their spare time. This 3D piece of King Dice is just one of many, and they’re all spectacular.
Cuphead’s animation style is iconic and incredibly distinct, which makes it so fun when artists give it their own twist. LaCardozaRojas reimagines the cup-brothers in a lively style that reminds more of modern-era Disney than the animated style of old.
One thing the Cuphead Show does so well is give the characters a unique twist that still looks amazing next to the original art. Salo’s sketches get across the dynamic and energetic movements that make each personality shine through.
It’s always great to take a moment to relax, and here Cuphead is sipping from a cup, in a fun meta moment. TiffanyDraws uses a gorgeous painterly style far away from the original Cuphead art, but the change is what makes it so striking.
That’s it for today folks, and we hope you’re about to set some of this gorgeous Cuphead fanart artwork as your background as you read this. For even more amazing Cuphead content, check out our Cuphead Cala Maria guide next.
