The stunning view a computer sees when you dance

We're just faceless shapes made of dots and lines and nodes to a computer. And that's kind of awesome. This experimental project by Maria Takeuchi uses Microsoft Kinect to capture the motion data of a dancer and then rebuilds those movements into a stunning dancing body made of dots and lines and nodes. » 3/10/15 9:37pm 3/10/15 9:37pm

Funny monster animations get inserted into everyday situations

Our favorite augmented reality artist, Marty Cooper, is back with more hilarious doodle fun in Aug(De)Mented Reality 2. You know the drill, he takes seemingly normal situations and inserts his adorable monsters into them.

Here's a wonderful new animation from a Disney animation legend

Even though I love today's 3D animation movies made with CG, there's something about seeing old fashioned hand-drawn animation that makes me feel like I'm peering into another world of breathtakingly fluid characters dancing on paper. Former Disney animator Glen Keane was a master at such animation and is responsible… » 6/27/14 7:46pm 6/27/14 7:46pm

Blending movie scenes with real life

Francois Dourlen is a photographer who also has a clever running gag for the Internet to enjoy: he splices in movie and TV shows from his iPhone to make them look as if they're happening in real life. It's not always as obvious as Pam Anderson running on the beach either, sometimes it's as ridiculous as Bruce Willis… » 5/09/14 10:21pm 5/09/14 10:21pm

Artist inserts his hilarious monster drawings into real life

To have a little bit of fun, artist Marty Cooper drew some cute critters and funny looking monsters on a transparent sheet and inserted them into real life.

This man is poisoning himself one brushstroke at a time

I never knew there was such a thin line between being impressive and being disgusting but artist Ani K is toeing it. Or to be more accurate, tongue-ing it. That's because instead of using a paintbrush to paint, Ani K uses his tongue to create his artwork. » 2/20/14 10:07pm 2/20/14 10:07pm

What Disney Princesses would look like as Game of Thrones characters

What if the world of Westeros was actually set in the wonderful world of Disney? The Seven Kingdoms would be up for grabs in the magical Disney universe. Disney princesses would become the cunning women of Game of Thrones. I know, crazy. Surprisingly not though. The characters swap work out pretty well. » 2/19/14 9:31pm 2/19/14 9:31pm

See the difference between an artist's drawings from age 2 to now

This is great. Artist Jake Lockett reveals his progression as an artist from a wee 2-year-old to now at 24 years young in a fantastic collection of his own work.

The Amazing Artist Who Lets the Real World Paint His Pictures

Some street artists paint awesome murals. Some leave thought-provoking installations in public spaces. That's pretty cool. But Russian artist Pavel Puhov uses urban objects as his muse—in a very serious way. » 1/20/12 10:07am 1/20/12 10:07am

Watch an Artist Magically Recreate Famous Paintings Without Ever…

This blows my mind. There is brain juice flowing out of my ears. Chan Hwee Chong, an artist, only needs one pen to create beautiful pieces of art. On top of that, Chong never even lifts the pen from the paper. It's all done in one stroke. » 10/14/11 12:00pm 10/14/11 12:00pm

Pencil Shavings Make Good Portraits

This is why I am not an artist. When I see pencil shavings, I scoop them up and throw them in the trash. UK artist and designer Kyle Bean, though, keeps them as raw material for a new creation. » 7/19/11 1:54am 7/19/11 1:54am
