Nintendo’s Miiverse is perhaps the Wii U’s greatest achievement. An online space for console gamers to talk, share tips, and post screenshots, it also hosts some incredible artists working within the black-and-white messaging confines of the 6.2-inch GamePad touch screen.

The release of Nintendo’s real-time action-strategy¬†game Pikmin 3 this summer has inspired some stunning work by a number of these contributors.

The gallery below features 18 of the most impressive Pikmin-related creations on Miiverse right now. Expect space travelers, ravenous creatures, extreme cuteness, and a couple of special guests. All of the pictures remain untitled due to the nature of the Miiverse messaging system, but we’ve added some short descriptors.
