Nerd Art Stock Pile: He-Man Is A Hipster, Sick & Twisted Pop Culture Art, Lots of Zombies, Star Wars Movie Poster Mash-Ups, High-Tech Batman Suit Concept Art, 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 Steve Jobs and Jack Layton partying it down with Michael Jackson and Patrick Swayze and other 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.
Starting off this week, we’ve got this kickass fan-made poster for The Avengers. No idea who did this, ’cause I found it cited under “Hobo123” of DeviantART, but that profile has no work on it. So I’ll leave it open-ended for now, but this is a pretty damn awesome poster.
Maciej is the artist behind this amazing piece called “Undead Pegasus”. Y’all will notice that the undead theme runs rampant in the art that we’ll be showcasing this week since Hallowe’en is right around the corner.
This fuckin’ sick piece of work depicting Freddy Krueger is only one of many twisted bits of pop culture art by the duo who calls themselves The Butcher Kings (comprised of Alex Pardee and Skinner).
Zombert & Zernie is a t-shirt design that you can actually get to impress teh laydees.
He-Man is a hipster, yo. Check out the rest of the collection by Fabian Ciraolo here.
This entire collection is really fuckin’ awesome. The whole idea behind it is taking posters for other movies and mashing ’em up with a little bit of Star Wars goodness. FreakingNews.com held a contest and these are the submissions they got. This one, here, is Chewbacca in Alice and Wonderland. Check out the rest here; they’re fantastic.
Spidey‘s gotten really emaciated! He’s all skin and bones and zombified here. Credit goes to RM73.
No idea who created this, but this is a sufficiently creepy bit of Yoda. “Tales of the Darkside of the Force”, it’s called.
Jay Hoff spent 6 months and $2 300 building this 30 000 piece LEGO diorama of the Death Star‘s landing bay. It was showcased at his school’s (he’s a teacher) Science Discovery Day. The thing is 6 feet x 6 feet. Holy shit.
This painting of the Joker is one of many pieces in Anthony Lister‘s collection of superhero-inspired art. He has a very distinctive and unique style of painting, and I love the rest of his work (though I’m amused by the fact that his Batman is fat).
The 5 year old kid who loves both Star Wars and Disney Princesses is a pretty well-rounded kid. Anthony Herrera had this cake made for his daughter’s birthday — check out the link for more pictures. Now I want a Harry Potter/Star Wars cake! Maybe for my next milestone birthday.
It’s a LEGO Milhouse! By Eric Harshbarger.
This is what Little Big Planet would have looked like if it were released for the NES. (I know, that thought doesn’t compute, right?) More renditions of current games as classic video game art here.
This bit of the Scooby Gang by Kizer Stone is pretty creepy. Funny enough, the live action film was on TV the other day and I still can’t get over thinking that it must be Buffy every time I see Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Awesome superhero art based on geometric shapes and vectors by Jam-Wah. It was tough to choose just one picture, since I like them all but The Hulk needs a little lovin’ too.
Adam Fisher has created some really fuckin’ amazing high-tech concept art for a new Batman suit. Check out the link for more pictures of this thing, because it’s really quite brilliant.
