Nerd Art Stock Pile: Our Web Browsers As Sexy Ladies, Embryonic Superhero Statues (WTF?), Obama ScarletJohanssoning, Muppet Fairy Tales, And More!
The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s fuckin’ weird shit like Bert and Ernie comparing dildos and shit like that. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis, and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm glory.
I love this! Click the picture for a full-sized version. Ever wondered what the top ‘net browsers, Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari would look like as chicks in hawt dresses? Probably not. But here you have it, anyway! Credit goes to the very talented Moie “Eskimoie” Preisenberger.
The whole Girls In Their Undies Vs. Zombies thing has been covered extensively here, but it’s still worth including in this week’s nerd art stock pile!
Francisco Guerrero is currently in the midst of his collection of cartoon-style Lord of the Rings art. I’ve included Gollum because he just looks hilariously awesome. The other characters that Guerrero has done so far look amazing, definitely check them out.
Dude. 696 little superheroes in 8-bit style. This is, obviously, just a fraction of the entire set. These are pretty cool, though I’d rather call them characters in popular culture, ’cause I have no idea how Leela and Bender from Futurama could be considered superheroes. Check out Ty Lettau’s flickr page for the high-res versions of each individual bit!
This massive LEGO Star Destroyer is made of about 43000 pieces of LEGO, weighs 180 lb and measures 8 feet long. Holy shit. Kudos to Erik Varszegi, who better fuckin’ hope that shit doesn’t get knocked over.
Parisians can be pretty fuckin’ strange. This is a photograph of a collection of sculptures of superheroes in an embryonic state. Wut? Yeah, I dunno. These photos were taken at an exhibit by Jalai Gerald Aro, but the sculptor is unknown. They’re pretty creepy.
Looks like everybody’s getting in on these ScarlettJohanssoning jokes now. And now it looks like Obama‘s doing it, too! While the dog looks on, of course. Dan Lacey, who painted this, gave the guy a really damn shapely ass.
Fabricio Campos is the mastermind behind this 3D rendering of a young Tony Stark. He’s a pretty badass techie, here.
Kizer Stone calls this piece “Bad News” and doesn’t seem to know who some of the characters he drew are. But Doc Oc‘s hanging out in the corner, there, and Venom is the focus of the bit. Still pretty cool!
Another awesome piece by Mr. Hipp! Here, we’ve got “Escape From The Magical Kingdom”, where Mickey is taking on the role of Snake in Escape From New York. He looks pretty wasted, not gonna lie.
Here is his little blurb about the piece and its corresponding imaginary movie:
“In the future, crime is out of control and the Magic Kingdom is turned into a maximum security prison. A former Disney hero, Gruff Mickey Mouse, is offered his freedom if he can rescue the President of the United States from the walled Magic Kingdom after a terrorist brings down the President’s plane.”
Iron Man vs. Loki! By Esad Ribic. That is all.
The “heavy” metal champions, Bender and Colossus! So much potential for legendary-ness, thanks to Marco D’Alfonso.
It’s the Big Bang Theory in 8-bit! Andrew Colb throws the modern day sitcom back about two decades.
Jelle Gijsberts created this cute and almost homely piece of Chef, from South Park.
This collection is actually super cool; it puts the Muppets into fairy tales! The piece I’ve chosen to display is a homage to Peter Pan, but there are many more on David Peterson’s website, including Snow White, Robin Hood, and King Arthur.
