Nerd Art Stock Pile: Gorgeous Disney Princesses, Pope Vader, Star Wars Toy Photography, What Would A Yoshi Taste Like?, Stop Motion Tattooing, 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 some guy trying to fuck his iPhone 4 (so that he can get an iPhone 4S) 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.
This week we’ll start off with some gorgeous digital paintings of Disney princesses — we’ve got Ariel, our little mermaid, pictured above. Jace Wallace‘s other artwork is absolutely amazing as well.
Click for a larger view. Alex Lee has redesigned a handful of the Disney characters in the context of the Lantern Corps. It’s pretty cool. Sadly, reading his self-pitying DeviantART description killed it for me, so I’m just going to ignore that shit. He also has notes to explain why each character got the color they did, and that’s worth looking at if you’re curious.
“Game of Clones” is a great title for a Game of Thrones and Star Wars mashup. An Etsy artist created this awesome piece and got the best of both worlds in it.
Who’s yo’ daddy? I have no idea who did this but Pope Vader is fuckin’ hilarious.
Foogos is entirely based on making logos with food. And they’ve got a handful of nerdy logos as well. Like this one of Captain America‘s shield! I shouldn’t be looking at this kind of stuff while starving…
Here, we’ve got some heavily feminized renditions of popular male characters, thanks to Walters. I thought this Johnny Bravo picture was awesome. You should get out the rest, though; there are lots of bewbs to look at. Particularly with the Bugs Bunny one, for example.
No idea who the artist for this is, but it’s a reconceptualization of the Toy Story characters in a more realistic way… Creepy!
Kizer‘s “Dark Knights”. Interesting! I like the sense of motion and the big question, of course, is what the hell is going on!?
John Woo is apparently a common Asian name! Anyway, he’s created this whole series of Star Wars characters (and some others) dressed up in high end fashions. It’s pretty damn awesome, you should totally check this out.
I’ve never once considered what a Yoshi would taste like, but apparently it’d taste like chicken. (But I guess everything tastes like chicken.) Anywho, thanks to Jude Buffum, we’ve got ourselves a Yoshi butchering chart! Among many others of video game creatures.
72 Pins is selling old game cartridges designed with 8-bit labels of modern games. It’s pretty cool, but also quite the mindfuck; imagine even thinking about playing Dead Space on the original Nintendo!
Yoda is badass. That is all. (Credit goes to Dogsfather.)
The above two pieces are part of the “Death Star Art Show”, which aims to combine Star Wars with horror themes. The first picture was drawn up by Chris Impink, and the Hannibal Yoda was created by tattoo artist Jeff Annecharico.
This is part of a beautiful photo series using toys to create movie-inspired photographs by Edward McGowan. I love these.
Vampire Harry Potter! Artistically, not super amazing but it explores an interesting concept. Credit goes here.
Another absolutely beautiful photography series, this time using Star Wars toys, by Avanaut.
Mike Doyle spends ages on building Victorian houses out of LEGO. But they’re fuckin’ amazing.
This has been floating around the internet quite a bit recently, but it’s just too awesome not to include. Dude created a stop motion video of his photography-themed tattoo, which I suppose is fitting. The artist, I believe, is Tony Touch, and he does a really good job with the inking.
And last, but not least… The dude with the Krang tattoo on his gut? Yeah, he’s a fuckin’ idiot.
