    Looks like a painting, right? Well it's not, it's a 3-D rendering of Benczúr Gyula's 1885 painting Budavár visszavétele created by 3-D artist Farkas Zsolt with over 8.5-million polygons. That is a lot of polygons. Polly want a cracker? Polly want a -- wait, where'd she go? ... / Continue →

    This is the surreal elephant LEGOmaniac Jin Kei made to resemble one from Salvador Dali's iconic Los Elefantes (picture of the original painting after the jump). Pretty cool, right? I'd proudly display that in my apartment. Or on my desk at work. I mean, if I had a desk. I... / Continue →

    Note: Remaining photos are probably NSFW on account of cartoon nipples. This is a small series titled 'Dirtyland' by artist Dillon Boy. It features Disney princesses in the style of naked street art pinups. Honestly, they're all relatively tasteful nudes though. And tastefu... / Continue →

    These are the terrifying, predominately zombie/horror themed makeup transformations Stephanie Fernendez created for herself (links to her website with tutorials). Clearly she has the skills to pay the bills. Me? My water's already been shut off and they're coming to cut my e... / Continue →

    RETROACTIVE WARNING: Dude squirting paint out his eyeball picture above. Meet Leandro Granato. Leandro creates art by snorting colored paints up his nose then squirting them out of his tear ducts and onto a canvas. Art might not be dead, but it's certainly crying about this.... / Continue →

    This is the Death Star painted on a lady's butt. I'm not sure if she did it herself in the mirror or if somebody helped. I'm also not sure why it's painted on both cheeks. Maybe one is supposed to be a front view and the other a back view. I don't know, I don't what the hel... / Continue →

    This is a shot of London stencil artist DS's first piece at a location, and the piece he replaced it with after taking a picture of the dude who painted over it. When reached for comment, the council member who painted over the original had this to say, 'No fair, that's my bad... / Continue →

    Painted by artist Marc Simonetti, this is the Iron Throne that George RR Martin says best fits the Iron Throne he envisioned himself while writing the 'A Song of Fire and Ice' series. As you can see, IT'S F***ING GNARLY. \m/ This Iron Throne is massive. Ugly. Assymetric. It'... / Continue →

    This is the custom floor painting job performed by Graffiti Decoration as an art installation in someone's house. It makes it look like the floor is falling away and there's nothing but outerspace beneath you. Which is weird because I have dreams like that sometimes. AND GUE... / Continue →

    Sometimes life hands you lemons, and you can make lemonade. But other times life puts a pillowcase over your head and pummels you with cantaloupes. I hate cantaloupe. Or is it honeydew? My point is the bruises are healing and I'll be back to embarrassing myself later today ... / Continue →

    This is a Calvin and Hobbes themed kid's room. I honestly can't think of another place I'd rather take an afternoon nap right now. It just looks so peaceful. At least until I climb out of that bed and step on one of the toy cars on the floor, then it's gonna be a lot less pe... / Continue →

    This is cosplayer Sasha Trabane sporting a TARDIS dress with the TARDIS interior cleverly painted by Andy Coyle in between the pleats. Is that the correct terminology -- pleats? Despite what I may have lead you to believe in the past, I'm not actually an expert on women's fas... / Continue →

    This is a 'Love is Art' kit. It comes with a canvas and a bottle of paint. You just douse you and your lover (or in your case just you) with the body paint, then go at it like animals atop the canvas. When you're done, ART IS BORN (and possibly a baby nine months later). As... / Continue →

    This is a series of realistically painted Pokemons by DeviantARTist arvalis (aka RJ Palmer -- check out his page for ultra high-res shots). It says in his little bio he likes dinosaurs, so we're pretty similar. Except I LOVE dinosaurs. I am dino fan numero uno. My buddy Ter... / Continue →

    This is a collaboration piece between Vincent Van Gogh and astronomy student Alex Parker. Van Gogh painted Starry Night, then Alex recreated the piece using pictures of real galaxies taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. I wonder what it was like getting to work with such a fa... / Continue →
