Frankly, with imagery like this there's very little I can add in words. So instead,scroll further downpast the photo ofDarick Maasen (opens in new tab)'s impressive but terrifying entry to next month'sSuper Iam8bit (opens in new tab)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.
