This terrifying 3D illustration is the work of Oliver Pabilona. The concept originated with fellow artist Stjepan Šejic, and Pabilona used that art as a guide to creating his version of a 3D Xenomorph T.Rex. It’s both beautiful and absolutely horrifying.

This beautiful image is made of 1,128,960 blocks in Minecraft. The blocks were placed by hand rather than by a computer program and the process took 23 weeks to complete. It’s the painstaking work of Thorlar who created the trio of Kerrigan, Diablo, and Deathwing.

Imagine what would happen if Star Wars ships crashed on Earth. Artist Nicolas Amiard has imagined exactly that in this series of photographs. He put an Imperial Star Destroyer in Paris, the Millennium Falcon in the Hudson River, and an X-Wing in Venice. He told The Creator’s Project:

“Star Wars is an imaginary universe and bringing elements from this universe in our real world seemed to be a very interesting contrast to work on.”

Kinda looks like a modern art Star Wars masterpiece doesn’t it?

Actually, it’s a still from Star Wars Wars by Marcus Rosentrater—a filmmaker and senior animator on the Archer television series.

It features all six Star Wars flicks playing at the same time. We’re talking pure visual insanity here.

While I’m still not quite sure what to make of it, I do have to say that the video is rather engaging…and headache-inducing.

Artist Christopher Cayco came up with an ambitious art project earlier this year that involved drawing all 721 Pokemon live on the Internet. After 21 days and 132 hours of work, he finished his massive project earlier this month. The result is an epic Pokemon mural (which boasts 800 Pokemon in total since he added official variations, Mega Evolutions, etc) and a series of videos that document the entire process.

Pikachu isn’t real of course, but that didn’t stop professor Takashi Oda of Seian University of Art and Design from imagining what the little guy’s skeleton would look like in the real world. Oda is a member of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology and has published several books on dinosaur skeletons so he’s just the person to tackle this project.

His students asked him to imagine Pikachu’s skeleton and it took him just ten minutes to draw the sketch pictured above. The next day he took it a step further with a more detailed drawing. Twitter user ShinkaiOgino even created computer-generated 3D graphics based on the sketches.

Shapiro has spent the past 25 years experimenting with computerized motion control and many of his Sisyphus Machines have been installed in locations around the world.
