Incredibly, it's actually art created in needlepoint. It's art in made in real life, using needlework, that sort of looks like a digital recreation of something from real life. Brilliant.
To me it feels like the kind of art you might see in a Lucasarts adventure game made using the SCUMM engine. It has those hallmarks: attention to detail, cool composition. I love these.
It's all the work of Australian Michelle Hamer, and artist with no formal textile training. Incredible that she's able to put this all together. You can find out more about her work on her website.
And if you're interested you can check out videos of the works as they progress, pretty fascinating.
