Real-Life Versions of Cartoon Characters
Most digital art websites always remind me how little I know about Photoshop. For example, even if I spent the next full week with my nose in a copy of Photoshop for Dummies, I couldn’t begin to create anything like Pixeloo’s "Untooned" image of cartoon and videogame characters.
Seen at right is Pixeloo’s "Untooned" version of Stewie Griffin from the animated television series Family Guy. Creepy, eh?
Wait until you see Homer Simpson… *shudder*
Head over to Pixeloo to view so-big-they’re-terrifying images of Stewie and Homer, as well as Mario (of the Mario Bros. videogame franchise) and Jessica Rabbit (of Who Framed Roger Rabbit fame). There are even a few animated versions of the images that successfuly up the creep-me-out ante.
Oh, and if you decide you want to see more of this type of "Untooned" image editing, check out the gallery of "Reality Cartoons" submitted to Worth1000.com as part of a recent contest. The images include a pair of real-life versions of Tycho and Gabe, the main characters from the Penny Arcade webcomic.
Now if we could only get an "Untooned" image of GrimJack.
