Italian artist Denis Medri has produced some stunning superhero renditions of European soccer stars recently, and if you're into Italian football, you should definitely check those out. For those who don't follow FIFA all that closely, however, you'll still want to see the classic movie, TV and Spider-Man tributes that he has sketched out.Medri's deviantART portfolio features bloody Asterix action and Batman art, as well as designs for Back to the Future and Kill Bill: Vol. 1 posters. He's got a caricature-friendly, fast and funny style with a sort of Chris Bachalo meets Ryan Ottley vibe to it.

His best work seems to come out when he's working with richly textured fantasy designs, though. IDW obviously saw this when they brought him on to work on their Dungeons & Dragons comics.

Have a look at a few of our favorite Medri pieces, including sword fights and sweet transvestites below:
