Smite Players Can Become the Precious Cinnamon Bun Artist Bob Ross With New Sylvanus Skin
“We don’t make mistakes, just happy little accidents” you can hear as a mighty gank occurs … Legendary artist Bob Ross is being immortalised in the game of Smite as the iconic feel-good painter becomes a playable character. Well, sort of.
A new skin for Sylvanus, a playable god within the MOBA, turns players into this precious artist, fully equipped with a paint brush, his handy palette, and – of course – his never far easel. The depiction of him will be suited to his real life likeness; fro, smile, and genuine good vibes. An interesting juxtaposition when taking out other gods, but that’s neither here nor there.
How players can get their hands on this skin is through the Bob Ross Bundle, here’s what’s included as per the Smite website:
- Bob Ross Sylvanus Skin
- Bob Ross Jump Stamp
- Bob Ross Loading Frame
- Bob Ross Loading Screen
The bundle itself goes on sale May 9th for PC, and May 16th for console and is available for 700 in-game gems or $9.99 on Twitch Commerce. This bundle was created utilizing a partnership between Twitch and the official Bob Ross Estate and is an interesting, yet enjoyable way, to keep the memory of this iconic painter alive. The “Happy Trees” patch can be seen in more detail within the video below, check it out:
