There's fan art, there's impressive fan art, and now, finally, after all of our years of waiting and hoping, there's finally fan art that uses bits of dead animals to create a taxidermied Koopa Paratrooper. And you thought those realistic Mario and Kirby pictures were disturbing...
Frankly, with imagery like this there's very little I can add in words. So instead, scroll further down past the photo of Darick Maasen's impressive but terrifying entry to next month's Super Iam8bit art exhibition in LA and I'll show you another corpse-built Nintendo tribute I was inspired to knock together this morning after seeing this one.
All very cute in safe, Nintendoey pixels, aren't they? But if ever you needed an argument for stylised graphics over finely-rendered realism, it's this malshaped braying nightmare.
Want to know which other Nintendo characters should never be seen in a realistic form? Pokemon. To prove this, I've taken a photo of the 100% genuine Pikachu I taxidermied together today.
Can you guess what it is yet? If you answered "A f*cking abomination, Dave", you are correct.
