Terrifying: Adventure Time Characters Rendered IRL

May 20, 2013


This is a small series (there's three) of Adventure Time characters imagined in real life by digital sculptor Thomas Lishman. They're all pretty scary. So the next time you're thinking about how great it would be to live in cartoonland, think again. You just can't see the detail of what characters actually look like when they're shot in cartoon-o-vision. Except those close-ups they used to do on The Ren & Stimpy Show. Those were pretty accurate. Remember April O' Neil from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon? In real life she's a toothless meth-head in a yellow rain poncho making Youtube videos.

Hit the jump for the Ice King and Princess Bubblegum.



Thanks to PYY, who allegedly had a pair of magic glasses that can make you see in cartoon-vision but apparently you have to drink this special tea first.

    So, did the person that did these ever actually watch the show, or did someone just give him vague descriptions of the characters? The Jake pic is particularly horrendous, and the Bubblegum "Princess" looks like a boy.

    I think PB would be cuter!

    BP looks too young. She's supposed to be 18, but the pic looks about 10


    See ya appeal! Nice knowing ya! (seriously, these are baaaaaad, they're 'technically' well executed Zbrush sculpts, but they don't have a shred of the design and charm of Pendleton Ward's drawings).

    Yes. Because they are not.

    I feel like someone really key is missing...

    Jake may be able to walk upright and talk but he's still a dog, that pic makes him look like some kind of human/dog hybrid.
