If Disney Princesses Had Regular-Sized Eyes, They’d Look Like This

Disney Princesses with Regular Eyes

Normal is relative, and when it comes to Disney’s princesses, the feature that varies the most is the size of their eyes. Ariel has noticeably large peepers, while Cinderella looks like she’s got closer-to-normal sized eyes. But what about the rest of the princesses? Well, Jen Lewis took it upon herself to edit their eyes so that each pair would be proportional to the face of the princess they belong to.

The result is what you see above and in the gallery after the break. Needless to say, most of them look odd, but maybe that’s because we’re used to seeing them with their larger-than-life eyes.

Intricately Carved Crayons Of Popular Geeky Franchises

CarvedCrayons-1

Game of Thrones is the most downloaded show in recent history. It resonates with people of the Internet. So does Star Wars. There are a few franchises that tickle the fancy of the demographic that spends most of its time online, and Etsy seller “CarvedCrayons” is hoping to capitalize on this with his intricate carvings of, well, crayons. They’re seemingly well executed and since they undoubtedly require a really long time to make, fetch a relatively high price: each crayon costs about $40, while an entire set like the ‘Great House Sigils of a Game of Thrones’ pictured below will fetch $300. Think of it as art.

‘Pro Bono Promo’ Recreates Logos Using the Brands’ Actual Products

Pro Bono Promo

At first glance, these logos might not seem like much. You’ve probably already seen them thousands of times already, whether you just skipped over them while grocery shopping or actually use them on a daily basis. But if you take a closer look, then you’ll see why these logos are not your ordinary hand-drawn or computer-rendered logos: they were made using the actual products they represent.

They’re part of a street art series called “Pro Bono Logos” by artist Dorota Pankowska. Armed with bottles of Cheez Whiz, jars of Maxwell House, and tubes of Colgate, Dorota took to the streets and recreated the logos by smearing cheese spread and coffee grounds on otherwise clean walls.

‘The Deep’ Transforms Old Tools Into Sea Creatures

Got some old tools in your toolbox? Thinking of throwing most of them out, especially the rusty ones? Well, before you do that, you might want to check out what animator PES did with his old tools. He’s known for his creative shorts that feature everyday objects in not-so-ordinary ways, and “The Deep” is his latest work that does exactly just that.

In it, PES transforms a bevy of old tools and random scrapes like chains, gears, presses, keys, and calipers into creatures from the deep. From the aquatic backdrop with undersea plant life to undersea creatures like fish and eel, PES has recreated them all using stuff you can find in a toolbox or at your local hardware store.

The short was originally released back in 2010 but it wasn’t until recently that PES uploaded the HD version to his channel.

Death by Chocolate: Monstrous ‘Kisses of Death’ Sculptures

Kisses of Death

These sculptures are the stuff of nightmares. Inspired by the popular Hershey’s Kisses that are a staple every Halloween for treats, artist Andrew Bell came up with monstrous sculptures called “Kisses of Death” that look like Hershey’s signature chocolate. The big difference is that Andrew’s kisses have a not-so-pleasant surprise on the inside: sharp, ferocious-looking teeth that look like they’ve already been painfully sunk into something…or someone.

The sculptures are currenly on display at the Bewitching III group exhibition at Stranger Factory.Continue Reading

Très Magnifique: Disney Princesses Decked Out in Pop Culture Halloween Costumes

Disney Princesses in Costume

As someone who grew up watching Disney movies and wishing for princessy stuff to happen in real life, I think this gallery of Disney princesses dressed in pop culture-themed Halloween costumes is nothing short of awesome. Most of the princesses stick to one persona. Some are damsels in distress, a couple are rebellious and angst-filled, while most are just too kind and have their toes stepped on by others most of the time.

So it’s definitely interesting to see another side of them, even though it wasn’t done by Disney. This gallery was created by Isaiah Stephens, who gave each princess a Halloween makeover by dressing them up in costumes that somehow reflect their character a bit. There’s Aurora as Daenerys Targaryen, Pocahontas as Katniss Everdeen, Snow White as Wonder Woman (she looks super!), Jasmine as Chun-Li, and more.

Check out more from the series in the gallery after the break.

Classic Superhero Paintings Little Supergirl” by aards2

Thousands of artists flock to Worth1000 every day, where art-centric competitions are held every day with site credits given away as prizes.

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, the contest essentially challenges community members to recreate classic Renaissance paintings while injecting a modern, superhero twist into it. You can find more of interesting entries from the contest after the break.

This Will Make You Cry Pixel Tears: ‘Finding Nemo’ Retold in 8-Bit

Admit it. Finding Nemo made you laugh a little, get mad a little, and even cry a little at the end. If you grew up in an overprotected environment, then you might even be able to relate with little Nemo himself. Now you can relive the entire story in just under two minutes thanks to CineFix, who just released their pixel-riffic version of Finding Nemo. It’s amazing what their team can do, as this is just one of the many movies that they’ve condensed and subjected to 8-bit animation under the 8-Bit Cinema series.

This particular one was written and animated by David Dutton, set in music by Henry Dutton.

Choose Your Own ‘Breaking Bad’ Adventure

Breaking Bad Book

Breaking Bad has officially come to an end. But don’t be too sad. Walter White lives on, in one way or another. The show’s much-talked about finale has inspired the release of so many Breaking Bad-related products, parodies, and even artwork.

One from the latter category is this series of classic Choose Your Own Adventure book covers featuring none other than the cast of Breaking Bad. The covers were done by Jon Defreest at the request of Vulture, and can I just say that they’re awesome? Hit the break for two more.
