  16. X

    Only ones that look wierd and arent accurate are popeye and bart.

  17. Shevonne

    These are totally awesome!

  18. Merlin

    Awesome job, but i would really have liked to see more … realistic characters. Like suppressing the toonish-features to make them really like if they were real persons. Mario, for example… just giving him more realisticly sized eyes and he could have been your plummer… But still, really wonderful job !

    I saw that buzz image on 3d total not to long ago. It’s really awesome. Also, cheers for embedding that video of Jessica Rabbit being untooned. Really made me wish I just mastered Photoshop instead of learning a heap of other programs.

    You can’t get any credit out of Kratos, the only reason he looks great over all is kuz he’s the most “realistic”, he and the GTA IV guy, but get real ppl, it’s “realistic” yet not proportional, ‘cept Popeye, he looks well done.
