Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Well, uhm, definitely someone who we’d never ever want to meet.
Miguel Vasquez, a 3D artist from Ontario, has ruined our childhood by reimagining the iconic duo of Spongebob Squarepants and Patrick Star. Using 3D rendering, he depicted the two with disturbing and realistic heads, eyes, and teeth.
It’s no wonder Squidward doesn’t like hanging out with these two. Oh, and speaking of Squidward, Vasquez later on included him – a glorious handsome version – in the series.
We recently had a short chat with Vasquez to find out more about his art.
“I started 3D modeling two years ago and yes I am self-taught.”
“I came up with the design because there was a lack of 3D renditions of Spongebob and Patrick on the web. So I decided to take matters into my own hands and create something a little different from the usual happy character.”
“The challenging part would be the hair. Doing realistic hair in 3D is pretty hard and time consuming. So I just left it as is without facial hair on both characters. Rendering took about eight hours in total.”
“Yes, I do plan on doing Mr. Krabs, Squidward, and maybe Sandy. But I am also working on another project involving Ed, Edd, N Eddy. I plan on making those three characters in 3D.”
“I encourage them to join 3D groups over at Facebook or on 3D forums. Posting your work and receiving criticisms from peers is perhaps the best thing you can do if you cannot afford proper education in 3D design.”
