A Scene From The Best 3D Artist of 2011

As a digital/3d artist it's easy to think that everything you do sucks when compared to stuff like this-a boxing ring scene by Guang Yang who was voted Best 3d Artist of 2011 by the folks at CGSociety.

The superb detail, from facial scarring to the soles of the shoes, and the way the personality of each character is so perfectly captured in their facial expressions and posturing, it's like Guang Yang has not only mastered 3d art but caricatures and life drawing as well. Check out the scene breakdown at the link below.

Surreal Paintings Made With Human Blood



If you've ever thought to yourself "Man, I would love to try my hand at painting, but paint is way too expensive" then guess what-your body is full of a fluid that works just as well but will cost you nothing!

I'm talking about blood, and although it may seem strange to paint with the stuff, it is definitely one of the less disgusting bodily fluids artists have decided to use in their works. Artist Vinicius Quesada knows the value of a pint of vital fluid, and you can see more of his sanguis works at the link below.

Artists Illustrate The Alphabet



What image do you relate to each letter of the alphabet? Various artists were asked the very same question, so they illustrated each letter, and drew up a small scene relating to each letter, like this Beatle themed letter B by Michael Gillette.

Together, they make up the print series called "The Illustrated Alphabet, and you can see more examples  from this great series at the link below.

The New Sexting Code, Or Is It?



Getting crafty to avoid punishment is what most kids do best, but I wonder if this list is really a new texting code used by the young folk, or a code used only by the kids who were caught up in this particular incident? Either way, I'll never look at the number 8 the same way again.

Skyrim As A Saturday Morning Cartoon


(YouTube Link)

Remember when Saturday morning cartoons were full of fantasy adventure? This throwback Skyrim cartoon by Harry Partridge reminds me of watching the Dungeons and Dragons animated series as a youngster, with eyes full of wonder and monster manual in hand.

The Safest Dress You'll Ever Wear



This strangely elegant looking dress was fashioned from 700 condoms by Vietnamese graphic design student Nguyen Minh Tuan, in honor of World AIDS Awareness Day.

These condoms may no longer be useful for preventing STDs or pregnancy, but the fact that they glow in the dark means you'll still be the center of attention even after the lights go out.

This Is Apple Wear From 1986



When the Apple company was just beginning to take the home computing world by storm, they apparently thought it would be a good idea to try their hand at designing clothing as well.

These clothes are the ultimate in computing comfort, and nothing says 1986 like wrapping sweaters around yourself in strange places.

Admiral Ackbar As A Wee Mon Calamari



This is what Admiral Ackbar looked like, as a newly sold alien pet shop slave, way before he was figuring out that things were traps and helping the Rebel Alliance blow up the Death Star. He looked so cute before he grew legs!

Cool Custom TARDIS DVD Bookcase



Model builder msmuse101 and her father threw their skills together and produced this awesome TARDIS dvd shelving unit, which looks so good they should mass produce them and sell them in stores.

The only problem with this TARDIS? It's way smaller inside than it looks on the outside, like it was made in an alternate reality.

Bizarro Mario Bros. Title Screen


(YouTube Link)

Digital artist Jonathan Fletcher has created the player select screen for a bizarro version of the Super Mario Bros. video game that would apparently take place in the Gulf of Mexico.

This has to be the skeeziest incarnation of the Bros. i've ever seen, but nobody ever said plumbing was a glamorous job!

Some Of The Sketchiest Lawyer Billboards I've Ever Seen



As an attorney trying to use a billboard to attract new clients, it's probably best to show the client why they should hire you, not how incompetent, insane or downright creepy you are. These guys and gals aim to show the entire city why their services should be avoided at all cost.

Mall Santa's Rappelling Mishap


(YouTube Link)

This is why a guy in a fat suit and fake beard shouldn't try rappelling from one level of a mall to the next, especially if kids are watching. I hope that mall gives out gift cards that repair shattered childhood dreams!

Uncomfortable Moments With A Russian Version Of TMNT



Apparently when Russia got a hold of our beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles they decided to go nuts and cross them over with everything from the Predator to Disney cartoons to Batman.

WTF Russia? I thought the Cold War was over?! Please don't look at these images if you're a die-hard TMNT fan and have a weak heart.

Turn Your Hybrid Car Into High Fashion Art



Lexus claims that their new CT Hybrid is 90% recyclable, and they aim to prove it by having designers create fashion art pieces out of various car parts for "The Lexus Fashion Workshop".

The pieces will be shown in the January 2012 issue of Vogue magazine, and there's no word yet on whether the automotive fashion pieces will then be turned back into a car and driven away after the photo shoot. This line gives new meaning to the phrase "check out her headlights."

Live Action Version Of Catwoman Kicking Some Tail


(YouTube Link)

It was a great idea to make a stunt video that shows what video game combat would look like in real life, and it makes for an action packed minute-and-a-half. But why do the bad guys always stand around, waiting for their turn to face the character instead of just mobbing them en masse?

And why does kicking ass mean characters fly through the air, throwing flying punches and other equally ineffective moves? Oh well, please excuse my criticisms and enjoy this video showing what Catwoman would look like kicking some street thug tail.

This AT-ST Treehouse Is The Coolest



This awesomely geeky AT-ST treehouse is simple, no-frills fun for a child that's more content using their imagination all day rather than being plugged in to a tv or video game console all day. Combine this with some sweet kiddy cosplay sessions and you've got a little piece of Endor in your backyard.

For The Lush That Has Everything-The Booze Backpack



This double barreled contraption can either be loads of fun, say if you fill it with punch or soda for a kid's birthday party, or you can fill the chambers with booze and prepare for your house to become a vomitorium.

This is the kind of stupid invention you hope doesn't fall into the wrong hands, even though I'm pretty sure the only people that are going to buy this thing were born with the wrong hands.

What If Batman: Arkham City Took Place In Springfield?



Every pop culture character looks funnier when they're Simpsonized! Awesome toon creator Dean Fraser has taken on the video game Batman:Arkham City via his Springfield Punx blog, where stiff upper lips and yellow skin abound.

Please note that Dean's illustrations start about halfway down the page linked to below; the drawings on the upper half are done by various fans and aren't nearly as well done as Dean's great designs.

Play Your Old NES Games On The Go



Man, if this amazing little gaming device had been invented when I was a kid, I probably would have gone outside to play more often, although it would have surely been with this portable gaming console in hand. Called the HandyNES, it plays all the old Nintendo Entertainment System cartridges, and you can even use the light gun to play a tiny game of Duck Hunt.

Life Sized Samus Made Out Of Old Game Cartridges



Samus Aran has been bringing the girl power to video games since the premiere of Metroid on the original Nintendo Entertainment System, and although the series isn't as prolific as, say, the Mario Bros. franchise, it nevertheless inspires a plethora of fan art.

But this life sized Samus fan art, made out of broken game cartridges from various gaming consoles, takes some serious dedication in terms of construction and the size of the display itself. And now this massive fan artwork is up for sale on Ebay, so you can bring it home and decide for yourself where the heck you're going to display it!

Hilarious Art School Advertising Campaign



I know the idea of going to art school is a concept that we as Americans lampoon every chance we get, but making it out to be some sort of PSA worthy societal problem is downright creative!

This advertising campaign for the aptly named College for Creative Studies features young artists stuck in awkward situations when their parents discover what they've been up to. Sculpting is not a crime!

Toadwart's Advanced Guide To Power-Ups



This visual guide has been released in order to prevent confusion when you discover these magical items in the world of the Mario Bros. Created by Juxtapop, this nicely illustrated guide was inspired by the Harry Potter universe:

I finally got around to watching every Harry Potter film.  Never saw them before, never read the books.  Then it hit me.  They have all the same powers as Mario.

So, while they may have the same powers at their disposal, Mario totally pwns Harry Potter in every way.

Why You Shouldn't Go Christmas Caroling With Yoda



You'd think Yoda's amazing Force powers would allow him to correct his speech impediment, especially when getting on everyones nerves it is. This cute Shoebox Cards illustration shows why the rest of the Star Wars gang are sick of Christmas caroling with the little green Jedi Master.

Itsa Super Mario Bros. Opera


(YouTube Link)

Fans of the Mario Bros. video game franchise draw inspiration from the moustachioed plumbers in so many creative ways, but i'm generally most impressed by the musical tributes. This operatic styled song released on YouTube by legolambs has hilarious lyrics that go along with the gameplay so well that you'll be entertained even though you're watching someone play Super Mario Bros. for the millionth time.

Half Life: Origins Live Action Short


(YouTube Link)

Inspired by the Half Life video game series, and the sense of wonder experienced in the opening scene as Gordon Freeman pulls into Black Mesa station, this is one of those shorts that's interesting to watch even if you've never played the games. Just think of it as a deleted scene from LOST, unless you are a die-hard Half Life fan, in which case you will find that statement to be offensive. Sorry about that.

Star Wars: Empire Of The Bat



Batman and Star Wars would be a pretty sweet crossover, with Batman battling the Imperial Army forces while trying to contain his own dark side.

But this fan art mashup by Dean Fraser contains concepts I find a bit strange, like the fact that the Joker is the Emperor and is therefore Batman's superior, or Nightwing being directly opposed to Batman as Luke Skywalker, but the character designs are spot on and very well done so I guess strange concepts be damned. Funniest character mashup in this series- Penguin the Hutt!
