Did not Want: 8-Bit Characters Made Real

aWhy must the internet spend all of it’s time ruining what is left of my childhood? Everywhere I look there is something new that destroys my blissful ignorance of the world around me.

8-bit characters of old are quaint and even cute when viewed through our modern eyes, but what if we could turn those 8-bit characters into something more realistic? Scott Johnson took a go of it and translated their 8-bit shapes into something more organic. You’d think they’d remain cute, but they actually walk the line between ugly and horrifying.

These poor characters look like they just got some falling down 70 flights of stairs. You can tell by the patters of broken bones and other injuries that is what happened.

Hit the jump for the rest of the set.
