Is this what the real Bowser would look like?
From geekology, After all the interest in the realistic Mario, Homer, and Jessica Rabbit, German artist Marcus Blättermann decided to create a realistic looking Bowser by painting him in Photoshop.
Some weeks ago Pixeloo did his great untoonings of Mario and Homer. This inspired me to try something similar. Like Pixeloo I also wanted to use Photoshop. But I didn't wanted to use any Photos. I just wanted to paint the whole thing. In Addition I not just wanted to lay a realistic texture over the original figure, but to rework the forms and proportions as well, to get the whole creature a more realistic look. This isn't a untooning of bowser, it's a redesign. How would he look like if he would be a real animal.
Not bad. Kind of reminds me of Tokka from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. Anybody else getting that? Say, is anybody else gonna get the damn door? I'm trying to blog here. I swear I hate all my freaking roommates. They just run around naked like a bunch of little kids and eat all my damn snacks. It's like living back at home again. Oh. Right. MOM! CAN YOU PLEASE DRAG YOUR ASS AWAY FROM THE SOAP OPERAS FOR TWO SECONDS AND ANSWER THE DAMN DOOR! Oh look, your youngest son is shitting on the carpet again. I TOLD YOU HE'S BEEN STEALING MY SNACK PACKS.
