What children’s drawings would look like if they were painted realistically (Or Where Nightmares Comes From)
May you have seen this before but it´s still worth showing.
Excellent illustrator Dave DeVries decided that it would be a cool idea to take some children drawings and illustrate them “realistically” …sigh. Beware of the following results below!
In his own words:
It began at the Jersey Shore in 1998, where my niece Jessica often filled my sketchbook with doodles. While I stared at them, I wondered if color, texture and shading could be applied for a 3D effect. As a painter, I made cartoons look three dimensional every day for the likes of Marvel and DC comics, so why couldn’t I apply those same techniques to a kid’s drawing? That was it… no research, no years of toil, just the curiosity of seeing Jessica’s drawings come to life.
