Cartoon and movie characters from childhood are usually remembered in a warm and comforting way. We feel nostalgia and remember what it was like to be a kid. Well, you probably won’t feel the same after you see these remakes by Australian designer Wil Hughes. This artist takes characters we all know and love and turns them into creatures fit to be in horror movies, effectively ruining all the good memories we had of cartoon and movie characters.
Wil uses a popular 3D tool called ZBrush to create these models and Keyshot to capture the best-looking screenshots of the model. He makes the characters look more “realistic,” but he actually manages to turn them into nightmare fuel. We would not like to meet one of these in a dark alleyway, or anywhere, for that matter. He told Bored Panda: “When I was young, I was really into 3D animation and found digital sculpture in high school and decided to pursue it as a career. Seeing cool character designs by other artists is always inspiring as well as the engagement I receive online.”
