Awhile back a DeviantARTist by the name of Kalapusa created this awesome, one of a kind Piranha Plant garden sculpture. Looks like he’s at it again and this time he’s brought to life that little yellow ball. That’s right, Pac-man has received his own sculpture and it looks fantastic. Ghosts every are cowering in fear with the knowledge that a creature the size of a tennis ball will eat them for points.
Sure, this Pac-man isn’t as adorable as it’s 8-bit counterpart (the original is always the best).
“My follow-up to Making a Piranha Plant, this animated depiction of the last days and final destination of a P. rotundus specimen is part of my 8-Bit Labs series of sculptures.”
Each piece in the 8-bit Labs series is based on a classic videogame character we all know and love (or for some, hate) seen through the prism of real-life anatomy. Created with clay, painted in acrylics and sealed in resin, to give the appearance that the specimen has been preserved in formaldehyde (just like Lenin). This looks so real, you could just walk up and hug the little yellow bastard. Another fantastic creation from the mind of a mad genius, that’s played too much Nintendo.
Hit the jump to see some shots of this “Living” Pac-man in action (including the one in formaldehyde) and a video of his creation. Just cup your balls though, we’ve heard he as an acquired taste for them.
