Masahiro Ito Shares Early Pyramid Head Art

There’s new insight into how Masahiro Ito created Pyramid Head for Silent Hill 2. The artist took to Twitter to share the art that led to the enemy’s final look. While the characters’ roots lie in his Strange Head series of paintings and a prototype appeared in his piece “3328,” Ito specifically cited “3310.”

Here’s a closer look at “3310” with Masahiro Ito’s commentary. He specifically mentioned it as some entity James could have encountered in the water. In a follow-up comment, he noted that Braveheart’s executioners also inspired the opponent.

Here’s Masahiro Ito’s “3328,” which shows multiple Pyramid Head-like creatures on the sides of the painting.

Finally, here are his “Strange Head” pieces.

People will soon get a chance to see Pyramid Head again, as a Silent Hill 2 remake is in development. It is in development for the PS5 and PC.

Silent Hill 2 is available on the PS2, Xbox, and PC, with a remastered version on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in Silent Hill HD Collection.
