Mario and Homer Come to Life

Lifelike Homer and Mario Freak Me Out

So you should all know by now, I love Mario just as much as the next geek. However, I would have to think twice before wishing he was a real live person! I've been putting off posting about these textured (and scarily lifelike) photos of Homer and Mario 'cause they kinda freak me out!

Seriously though, I gotta hand it to the devoted dude over at Pixeloo, because he really put some effort into "un-tooning" my fave plumber and the number one dad of Springfield in some serious weeklong sessions of Photoshop. To hear about how he did it, just

The artist started by cutting and pasting different parts of faces from random pics (including one of John McEnroe), then layered them on top of reference photos of the toons to create these 3D renders. Although he does say these aren't meant to look like real folks:

"For clarification, these aren't studies of what Homer would look like if he was a real person, its just what a cartoon like Homer would look like if he kept his toon proportions but had realistic texturing and lighting."

I still can't help but think that if I saw these guys on the street, I would have to immediately run in the other direction! Since he's remained anonymous on his blog, we'll just give him some kudos here for freaking us all out!

Okay I'm going to curl up into the fetal position and sob quietly to myself now. As JaeB said, Mario isn't so bad... but Homer! His tiny ears will haunt my dreams. *shudder*

Mario looks like a 60 y.o. man attempting to entice someone, and Homer resembles an alien. What's with the eyes?
