Stop Motion Chalk Drawing Of Donkey Kong's Barrel Coming Back To Get Him On A Set Of 'Impossible Stairs'

July 19, 2013


This is a stop motion video made by 3-D chalk artist Chris Carlson of Donkey Kong sitting on a set a set of "impossible stairs" (Penrose stairs) and watching a barrel travel around them till it comes back and knocks him off. The beginning of the video is actually a time-lapse of Chris drawing the whole thing on the floor though. The stop-motion is after that. And after that? The after PARTY. *dumping champagne over head* We bout to get crazy up in here! "You're alone aren't you?" I need a hug, bad. "But you're soaked in champagne." THEN F***ING HOVER-ARM HUG ME LIKE I'M SOME CREEPER WHO WANTS HIS PICTURE WITH YOU AT A COMIC CONVENTION, SHIT.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks Chris, now how about some chalk art WITH DINOSAURS. Everybody loves dinosaurs.

    Real. And straight.

    I can appreciate the effort that this must have took... but I personally was not "awe" inspired. Video games and CGI have killed my generations appreciation of such things.

    Maybe it's because I'm an artist (in my free time, not professionally) but it certainly awed me. The clean work and dedication necessary for such a short and simple animation is incredible.

  • This. Keep in mind it was drawn by hand and not computer generated. Although, I would've been more impressed seeing the barrel literally chasing Donkey Kong around the stairs and the video set on a loop...
