Man glues together bits of dead animals to make soul-suckingly horrific Mario monster

Frankly, with imagery like this there's very little I can add in words. So instead,scroll further downpast the photo ofDarick Maasen's impressive but terrifying entry to next month'sSuper Iam8bitart 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.

Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
