Homer Simpson Untooned

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

As promised, if our beloved Simpson patriarch wasn't a toon.

[click to enlarge]

This one was a bit more difficult in that i wanted the light to come in mainly from one side with a bit of back light. So all my reference had to be lit from one side. For textures i needed but didn't have this lighting situation, i had to darken or light a bit to give the same effect.

For clarification, these aren't studies of what Homer would look like if he was a real person, its just what a cartoon like Homer would look like if he kept his toon proportions but had realistic texturing and lighting. I find this slightly less disturbing than the Mario one. :) Some might feel he looks too old, keep in mind he was in his 30's 20 years ago when the show first started. ;)

I saved my texture reference photos this time and i'll post those up in the next couple days for those who are interested.

Disturbing!

Excellent job. 10 / 10, really good work.

rubix said...

I found your site through ffffound.com and the character choices are great! If those images could be applied to a tee that would be awesome. I noticed someone asked for Astro boy, that would be sweet to see done in your style? good luck in whatever else you develop this into.

SARAH FRANCE said...

congratulations on your success so far, wishing you all the best and much more in the future...

I think Homer has a beard.

stefano said...

I think you should do something for wrinkle around eyes: it looks older than the authentic one... Good work however!

Seb said...

Homer is awesome, so is all your work! Look very foward for many others!

-cA- said...

It's just amazing !
Well done, the Jessica Rabbit is awesome too (especialy her hair...).

What about Fry or Leela for more Groening stuff...

Tibor said...

thanks for delighting the world with such skillful works. Simply put: they're awesome!! Keep goin'!

Keep up the good work!

It's really a great job, but it's also (and I don't know why) a little bit frightening to me.

this is awesome, best homer pic i've seen on internet, most original also.
a masterpiece man, really great job. can´t wait for new ones

Very good!
Please do the complete family!

Anonymous said...

That is some serious shit!

Well done with hangin on in there to get it finished. It looks fantastic! There is always going to be criticism about artists work as people see things that they believe would make it look better. And when those critics stop, then you have a master piece.

That's what I think.

Hey, your blog is in the Guide supplement of the Gaudrian magazine which is how I found this. This is really cool and I'm a bit of a photoshopper myself and thought this might be fun to have a go at. I've been working on one for the last few hours. Don't worry I'm only doing this for my own pleasure. I think I'll e-mail you the result fo my first go afterwards. I have to say it is a lot of fun to watch the picture formulate.

Michael said...

Great stuff! The Homer is my favorite. I'd love to see you try your hand at Leela from "Futurama." It would be a real challenge to make her cyclopean and still hot.

phillip turner said...

Man your drawing are just great,you should do tekken characters like that too.

El Sonámbulo said...

Increible, aunque da un poco de miedo, el trabajo es excelente en todos los casos. Mi felicitaciones.

Anonymous said...

You do a great work, this one is freaking me out. How about a real cartman next?

Erind said...

ya you should do professor hubert farnsworth from futurama, lela,zoidberg, Peter griffen, marge simpson or someone from southpark . that would be a challenge.

Visitor999999999 said...

Sorry, I don't like this one. I loved your work on "Jessica Rabbit", but this just looks somehow wrong..isn't Homer to me, the same with Mario actually. They are both very creepy..

Jacob Jimenez Lechuga said...

This is so funny and so masterly rendered that it actually takes a couple of minutes to analyze all those fine details.
Thanks for sharing it. Hope to see more of your art soon.
Friendly yours

Would be cool to see a more realistic version of the photoshopped cartoon people tho.

Great job! Have you seen Limpfish's Rembrandt Homer Simpson? both pictures compliment each other perfectly.

Dougoll said...

Whoa dude!! you're fukn crazy!! you're a photoshop god!!

Boy Experto said...

this one is my favorite!

dog-towner said...

Wow! A lot of bloggers thought Mario looked like a pedophile. I think he's a bit scary but... Homer?! I can definitely see Homer standing outside of a playground, wearing a rain coat, handing out candy. Creepy!

Fantastic work! I wish I could see your step-by-step process (secret).

Works of this quality must be time consuming, yet extremely rewarding to someone who's as creative as you obviously are.

If I had your talent I believe I'd try an oldie, like Popeye or Olive Oyl.

There a lot of "people" I'm interested to see untoon, like the power puff girls. xD I imagine it funny. Or any manga, like Ash from Pokemon. *lol*
Cause you untoon Mario, maybe you should try to untoon Yoshi. This would be pretty cool!

Jason said...

Would you be able to do this with an entire frame from The Simpsons? Not like...one with all the characters...but a quick screen shot from an episode or something?

If you can...how long do you think it would take you to do it? And how much would you charge someone if they asked you to? :)

Just so you know, that Zwinky thing's stolen your pic of Homer and Peter. You know, Smiley Central.

Either way, these are incredible. His eyes are...creepy, to say the least. D:
