Michael Jackson in Fortnite could be the latest fan-made skin concept to be realized in-game thanks to work of a 3D generalist making the rounds online.
Designed by 3D generalist João Filipe Santiago, the Michael Jackson concept skin has generated excitement by those in the Fortnite community.

Along with a social media campaign hashtag, #WhatIfFortniteAndMJ, João Filipe Santiago launched a teaser for his Michael Jackson concept.
Complete with four edit styles of the skin, Santiago says he created everything in the video, except the Drum Gun model, by himself using Blender 2.8 Eevee.
"I would buy it in a heartbeat," commented Haleluyaa on YouTube.
With calls for iconic MJ emotes such as the Moonwalk, signature crotch grab and Thriller choreography, Santiago went the extra mile to give fans a look at the treatment Epic Games gave fellow musician Travis Scott. In addition to a video showing off the emotes, Santiago created Michael Jackson-themed Mythic items and even a 10-minute long live event concept.
This work is the latest example of the creativity present within the Fortnite community, last seen with Epic's official collaboration with 3D Fortnite concept artist D3NNI on the Snowbell skin.
