Sparrow v. Loki

Published by under Images,Movies

Jack Sparrow and Loki don’t have too terribly much in common other than both being charming and owned by Disney, but here they are going head to head in a treasure vault as imagined by artist Imbong Hadisoebroto.

Buried in the background are a whole host of Easter Eggs from both their universes, and a few others. See if you can spot them all! It’s more fun than Where’s Waldo? Well, at least for me, because I was colorblind and his damn red stripes meant nothing to me.

Disney Firefly is Just Plain Shiny

Published by under Images,Television

I’m sort of in love with this Disney version of Firefly, like that’s any surprise. Artist Stephen Byrne has transformed the series into animated form, with nary a princess to be found.

I actually like how he’s fully adapted the characters into Disney archetypes, with River literally being a little girl, and Book uh, a little wizard, or something. But both fit well. Wash looks suspiciously like a blonde Joss Whedon, and I can’t tell if that’s on purpose or not.

CGI Robert De Niro An Inch Away From Crossing Uncanny Valley

Published by under Images,Movies

Here’s the order in which CG animation is getting closer and closer: still images, movie special effects, TV special effects, video game graphics.

Here we see pretty much the top of the pyramid which is almost there, but still a little bit creepy. It’s a portrait of young Robert De Niro by Hossein Diba, presumably asking someone if they are in fact, talking to him.

It’s so close to reality it’s scary, and still just a little bit unnerving. Great work though.

Pokemonified Versions of NBA Logos

Published by under Images,Video Games

I think we’ve seen Pokemon versions of NFL logos in the past (though that could have been a weird dream or something), but now we’ve moved onto the NBA.

The logos seen here are a mix of actual NBA teams and Pokemon cities. I don’t know enough about sports to say that ALL are direct parodies of NBA teams, but they could be and yet again, my athletic knowledge fails me,

Check out a big chunk of the teams for yourself below:  Continue Reading »

The Phenomenal Pop Culture Art of Craig Drake

Published by under Images,Movies

Craig-Drake-Vasquez

Chances are if you’ve been given your own solo art show at LA’s Hero Complex Gallery, you’re pretty damn good, and that’s certainly the case with Craig Drake.

His series features some of the most iconic characters ever across film and TV, though I like his inclusion of supporting characters like Vasquez above.

From Han Solo to Snake Plissken to Buffy Summers, there’s something here for everyone. Check out all the pieces below: Continue Reading »

A DIY Borderlands Claptrap Trashcan

Published by under Images,Video Games

claptrap-2

The good folks at Our Nerd Home have created a DIY project like no other. It’s a Claptrap garbage can, the robot pulled from the Borderlands universe where he’s usually standing around being snarky rather than shoving trash inside his head.

The process to create the can was pretty lengthy, and you can see all the stages at their site here. You could probably do it yourself if you had the time and talent, but I’m content to admire from a far.

A few more pictures of Claptrap in action below: Continue Reading »

Indie Game: The Art

Published by under Images,Video Games

The last few years have seen an explosion of Indie games as audiences have accepted cheaper, simpler games that are executed well. No need for huge AAA campaigns or super HD graphics. Rather, it plays well and/or is hilarious, that’s good enough to fashion an Indie hit.

This artwork by Memoski takes nearly all the biggest success stories of the Indie scene and puts them in one place. If you can name them all, I will give you the key to Unreality (it’s a figurative key. and shaped like a Pokeball fused with a Disney Princess tiara).

A Gallery of DC Comics’ Bombshells

Published by under Comics,Images

Ant Lucia is one of the best artists around, and specializes in pin-up style art from decades past. They’ve done an entire series of pin-ups based on various DC heroines, and as you might expect, it makes for a pretty cool gallery. We don’t exactly paint these things on the side of warplanes anymore, but that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t look great hanging in your house somewhere.

Check out their site here for more, and see the entire series below: Continue Reading »

Some Rather Gorgeous Disney Gender Swaps

Published by under Images,Movies

out_of_water_by_sakimichan-d79ulj8

Usually when we see “gender swap” art or cosplay, it’s girls taking over traditionally masculine roles. As fun as that may be, it’s interesting to see the other side as well. From regularly featured artist Sakimi Chan comes a series of rather amazing Disney swaps with BOTH genders represented for a change. I mean, there are a lot of princesses after all.

My favorite is probably Boyriel (Arian?) who appears to be straight out of a Final Fantasy game, but I also like Cruella Dudeville (I’m really pushing it with these). Swapped Beauty and the Beast may be the strangest, while flipped Nightmare Before Christmas is the most innovative. The entire series is below, and definitely worth a look.

Not Sure How I Feel About Adult Baby Avengers

Published by under Images,Movies

I’m normally a fan of babies. They’re cute and cuddly and sometimes loud and smelly but that’s forgivable. As you may guess, I do not have one, but someday that’s bound to happen.

But these babies? I’m not quite as enthused. They’re Avengers, baby-fied, but in a way that’s not quite cute, since many of them have facial hair. They’re closer to dwarves than babies most of the time, and the effect is a bit off-putting.

Good work Ben Oliver. You are talented and have made me uncomfortable.

Realistic Movie Toys Make for Very Cool Live Action Posters

Published by under Images,Movies

movie-posters-toys-8

I’m sure any collector would get angry for me mixing up “toys” and “figurines,” but I grew up with a tub full of superhero action figures, so it’s a hard habit to break. In reality, many action figures have become just “figures” now, and as such, have a level of realism to them that’s simply unprecedented.

One collector, Romain Vendrell, is also a great photographer, and decided to light and pose his figures in such a way where they could be edited into movie posters. The figures are so realistic, the effect is pretty eerie, and you should check out the rest from Wolverine to Captain America to Batman below: Continue Reading »
