Living Cartoons - Photoshop Contest [18 entries]

Dick Dastardly Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
65.3%
Contest goal:

Bugs Bunny, the Smurfs, Tom & Jerry, Homer Simpson, Eric Cartman, Peter Griffin, Stewie,... : all kinds of cartoon characters that made millions of people put a smile on their face for the last couples of decades.

All these cartoons were drawn, and your goal in this contest is to make them "alive", a depiction of how they would look like in real life. You can only use photos to achieve this and you can only pick out animation cartoons which are originally made in 2D/drawn (so no 3D cartoons allowed). The photo-transformed cartoon can be from the old animations or from nowadays, as long as they look like the original ones, as much as possible.

Not sure what this is all about? Check out Homer Simpson alive, by pixeloo.
Good luck!


Required level: 5+ or higher.

blaine2nd: Aren't there copyright issues with this one? ( 5 years and 1275 days ago )
frelbow: Cool idea! ( 5 years and 1275 days ago )
Contest Moderator: Exceptional for this contest, copyrighted images are allowed as reference. ( 5 years and 1275 days ago )
arca: Does this have to be a "movie" cartoon or can it be a comic strip/book cartoon character? ( 5 years and 1273 days ago )
wazowski: @ Arca, I mentioned 2D animation characters, because they mostly are "simply" drawn. I know that there are also "simple" comic book drawings, but wouldnt know where to draw the line between simple and complex drawings. All this, because my idea is to make a character 3D "real" (as in, real hair, real skin, real lips, but all in style of the animation drawings), based on something simple 2D . Btw I use " " for simple, because the lines only look simple, of course it's not easy to design and animate such character ( 5 years and 1273 days ago )
jadedink: can there be more than one character in the chop? ( 5 years and 1271 days ago )
Drivenslush: Do we have to use Photos? or can we draw it directly out of PS (like a DD challenge) just asking ( 5 years and 1271 days ago )
langstrum: This theme was used in Worth1000 contests several times and I think it might be helpful that we take a look on them before judging our contest entries on the creativity and execution: http://effects.worth1000.com/contests/21525/reality-cartoons-3 http://effects.worth1000.com/contests/19342/reality-cartoons-2 and more, you can find them in the bottom of the related contests. Also, that's the good references on how a cartoon characters can be transformed into reality. ( 5 years and 1271 days ago )
wazowski: @ D-slush: Mainly photos, perhaps some retouching with PS drawing, but drawing all wouldnt make much sense for this contest, because I wanna see cartoons with real skin, eyes, etc. @Langstrum: THere are some funny ones there, also some less funny... @J-dink: Sure, go ahead! ( 5 years and 1271 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I'm thinking the best etries would be those cartoons that are actually human but there's some pretty good entries so far. ( 5 years and 1271 days ago )
gopankarichal: In this contest humanization of the cartoon character is allowed or not? If the character is originally human there is no problem. But I found some entries used human look for the cartoon characters, originally it is not. As per the contest goal making them alive is the task.I need a clarification from wazowski or from the moderator. ( 5 years and 1270 days ago )
wazowski: Although I'm not completely sure what you mean with humanization, the idea of this contest is that you make/rebuild a cartoon character, using real pictures as texture (for skin, hair, eyes, clothes, etc) but trying to go as close in drawing style of the original character. See the link of Homer as good example . Other example (didnt see this one yet) Daffy Duck. He'd have real feathers, but in the cartoon he also has "real" arms/fingers (instead of wings). I hope it's more clear now ( 5 years and 1270 days ago )
Alan2641: many stunning works here -- congrats to all for some really great work ( 5 years and 1267 days ago )
