Shark Gun

Guns are pretty intimidating on their own, but now artist Christopher Shulz has pushed it to a new level with his shark gun chrome sculpture collection.

Ocean authorities and marine biologists have regularly produced evidence that sharks are not as bloodthirsty and dangerous as pop culture media often depicts, and this fact was part of the inspiration. As Shulz explains, his shark gun sculptures “are meant to evoke a prescribed reaction from misinformation.”

Then again, maybe we should keep that part quiet and take this a step further with a gun that shoots sharks. Look for that on Syfy sometime soon.

Pokémon fusion (otherwise known as Pokémon splicing) is basically where you take two Pokémon and combine them to make a new, and all-together very unique critter.

Josi, a 19-year-old artist (she calls herself a “wannabe concept artist,” though I think she’s way too talented to be a “wannabe”) excels in this arena, as you can see from these Pokémon creations.

Take a look at some more examples after the break…

fantasy creatures 1

Lee Cross has skills. The talented artist has a knack for being able to sculpt life-like fantastical creatures that are breathtaking. The handmade critters appear to be armature wire covered in fabric, stuffing, and fur, and they come in a wide variety of sizes. They’re also fully posable! It’s like having an adorable, exotic pet without any of the work.

While she doesn’t take commissions or have an Etsy shop, Lee does offer her creatures on eBay from time to time.

See more of Lee’s work after the break.

moon animate

Over two hundred artists have joined forces to animate a single episode of Sailor Moon. The project, titled Moon Animate Make-Up, is a crowdsourced group animation project that focused on re-animating an episode of the series shot by shot. The result is a full length parody episode that’s rather incredible to watch. If you don’t have time to view the entire 23 minutes, jump around just to see all the differing art styles.

Watch the video after the break.

pokeshaming

We’ve seen kid shaming, pet shaming and even D20 shaming, but thanks to a new Tumblr meme, we have Pokémon shaming — which may be the best shaming ever.

Head after the break to see some great examples.

This glorious mashup between Game of Thrones and Adventure Time is the combined effort of Joe Hogan and Mike Vasquez. The characters look just fantastic with Finn making for an absolutely fierce Jon Snow.

Yes, that’s an AT-AT walking through a beautiful landscape painting. It’s a part of The Ancient Kaiju Project by German artist Oliver Wetter. He’s inserted all sorts of monsters into classic Hudson River School paintings as a way of improving his ability to replicate the styles. He’s done an incredible job, with the creatures looking like they were always a part of the art.

8-bit characters of old are quaint and even cute when viewed through our modern eyes, but what if we could turn those 8-bit characters into something more realistic? Scott Johnson took a go of it and translated their 8-bit shapes into something more organic. You’d think they’d remain cute, but they actually walk the line between ugly and horrifying.

catwoman statue

French department store Printemps is all kinds of fancy. It’s made to attract wealthy clientele, and to help entice shoppers to come inside, they had an art exhibition inside the store called “Pop the Bag.” Each installation featured a handbag, and DeviantArt user Kordian decided to add a pop culture twist by featuring Catwoman swiping Batman’s cowl. The statue is meant to be a modern take on Caravaggio’s “Judith Beheading Holofernes.”

Pokémon are cute little creatures, no matter how destructive their powers. However, if you take those same adorable Pokémon and give them Attack on Titan makeovers, they’re horrific.

Really, this is your nightmare fodder for tonight, all thanks to deviantArtist Beth Emery. You’ll never look at Pokémon the same way again.
