Stewie Griffin Untooned

Saturday, May 24, 2008


Stewie Griffin
[click to enlarge]

Gotta run this morning, but I'll post this and talk a bit more about the process later this weekend. One thing I'll say its definitely harder to get that "realistic" look with smooth skin. This seems pretty illustrated compared to Homer and Mario. Anyway, cheers, enjoy!

* UPDATE * I got a date on the Official Playstation Magazine UK magazine of Nico Bellic. It'll be on shelves June 16th, check it out if you're in the UK or somewhere that has it!

Nice job :)

[EMERSON ABREU] said...

I loved this one o_O

His eyes, his mouth, his hair... and his hands. It's all perfect!!

Reminds me (a little bit) the Chucky doll from Child's Play ;)

Hugs!

unapologetic said...

The facial features sort of look like they're pointed the wrong way. It's almost cubist. I can't tell if that's the way the character is actually drawn and it's just not as apparent in cartoon form, or if it's something that happened in the untooning.

I think I need to see the original. Maybe set it as a mouseover, so we can flip back and forth.

lol tight

suanie said...

very lovely!

Aaron said...

You are extremely talented ... I love this! Well worth the three+ weeks of hitting refresh to see if you posted yet! Haha ...

I vote you do Murderface from Metalacolypse next!

Sean said...

That is pretty slick.

It looks very lifelike, its great.

Parpa said...

great work!!!

Skizzo said...

Unapologetic - This is probably similar to the original.

I personally think it's awesome! I absolutely love them all!

mistilea2006 said...

i love it i have bee waiting to see it forever bookmarked your page and kept looking everyday!!!

id like to see meg untoon cuz everyone calls her ugly and id like to see her if she was real ya know...good work

Will said...

Very nice job. I'll never watch Family Guy the same...

Anonymous said...

awesome, now we need Peter to keep him company

DuggersCup said...

That looks really great! You should do Hank Hill, the facial features and lines are pretty much done already.

ZombieFace said...

Great job dude! You fuckin' rock!
Always looking forward to your next 'Pixeloo' ...thats what i am calling your untooning now.

Anonymous said...

lol that is too cool nice job

Anonymous said...

Great, now post a poll!

TarantulaTom said...

Fantastically disturbing, good show.

As Unapologetic and skizzo pointed out, the perspective looks off because the original drawing isn't balanced well. If that becomes an issue in the future, maybe consider adjusting a few elements to your own taste, rather than sticking so stringently to the base artwork?

As a suggestion for other toons, I think Dale Gribble from King of the Hill might be interesting to look at. Or have you considered any non-human characters? Timon and Pumbaa from Lion King might be neat as well.

Keep on keeping on.

BronzeArmor said...

Once again....amazing. Your work is awesome. I agree with the one guy above me. You should try Hank Hill next. That would be one heck of an untooning right there. Good luck on all your amazing work to come.

Whibla said...

great job!!!

z80 said...

i love this cartoon.
look butt-head real
perfect!

omg!!!

i was desperatelly waiting for it!!!

and it's amazing.

we have to clap our hands!!!

Björn Eskil said...

Impressive! I can't wait to see more. It's addictive, I can't wait to find out who will we see next? Fred Flintstone? Popeye? Elmer Fudd? a non-human maybe? Bugs or Daffy? Mickey or Goofy?

Adrian said...

Will you be posting a copy of Niko on here from the Playstation magazine?

Great job on Stewie!

dawwe said...

Looks great, keep up the good work.

Anonymous said...

Great job ! You should make some classics like Captain Caveman or the Flintstones !!!

Caribou Lou said...

Nice this is epic, well worth the wait... And I agree with one of the posters... You should seriously do Meg Griffin, i never thought she was all that ugly, but lets see your take on her...

5 starts out of 5 *****

2r2_tU57wtPlJ9TICgsAk4wJfw-- said...

This is terrific!

I'd love to see some classic 'toons, like Betty Boop or Mr. Magoo done this way. Or, more contemporary ones, like Beavis and Butt-head!

love it man. now we just need the rest of the family and quagmire, gotta have quagmire

Anonymous said...

Pretty cool, and well done. But it does kind of bother me that these pieces that you do are called "Untooned" when it isn't really "untooned" at all. They are just given more dimension and then a few realistic details, but they still look very cartoonish. I think it would be cooler if you actually tried to make what the person would really look like if they were a real person. That would be much more interesting to me.

But I'm not knocking your work at all, it's still very cool and you do a good job. Kudos.

Sylvain Racicot said...

Another good one! It was worth the wait. Stewie already looked a little creepy before, now it's more obvious... ;-)

There's already a few good suggestions in the previous comments, but here's another one; Dilbert.

Keep up the good work!

Cera said...

dude your work is so awesome. you´re a very talented person. congratulations. you should untoon Catz "all your base are belong to us" !!!! that would be epic xD

°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° TELEVISION SPY °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° said...

Wow great work, the head is realistic while the body is a bit cartoonish and off balanced from the face. Still nice job.

DON PATTO said...

i agree with the anonymous guy above about the "untooning not being untooned"..... i think your best work so far is Homer and Mario..since they really have that "reallistic" look... on the other hand..stewie still is too cartoonish... it's probably the skin rendering.....gotta look for better skin samples.

good work though...

andrewQuintiliani said...

Definatly a more difficult subject than your previous ones, but I think this is a definate success! As you said, it's more illustative than previous, almost cubist with the odd angles here and there. Very stylized, but really great!

Can't wait to see more!

Also, I never noticed how creepy Stewie is....

CoolSilver said...

As Don Patto pointed out he looks more cartoonish compared to Homer.

The reason I see is Stewie is a Toddler. He wouldn't have the same skin texture as aging would provide as with Homer. The softer the skin texture the less detail you will see. This gives him a baby smooth skin appearance.

Six7Six7 said...

That might almost look real if you actually considered that no human being has a head that shape

So basically, you took a family guy character and just added detail to his clothes. neato.

no. not really. sorry. lame.

Newsboy said...

Damn it frustrates me to see people knocking your work. Your work is great and I make sure I visit your website every other day just to see what else you will be bringing your loyal viewers. I don't have any suggestions for your next work, just keep up the great work :D

Jonnhy's said...

Really great work with all the characters so far. I think it would be great to see an untooned smurf! Any of them! Keep them coming man!

Nia said...

That looks so great :D

endoris said...

This is unbelievably creepy. I look forward to seeing non-untooned images, per Hand-Eye Coordination, which is also somewhat creepy.

Mr Faulteh said...

What the deuce!? Excellent work! Now let's see a quagmire giggety animation :D

Love it! Stellar work as usual.

Elisabet said...

EEeiiaa.... I think this one is not as good as Jessica Rabbit or Homer.. The other ones are amazingly well done, I think Stewie is only well done... but eventhought, your uncartoon abilities and your work is INCREDIBLE!! (in spain: BRUTAL!)
Keep doing your stuff!!
(we wan more! :)
Un saludo!

DeadPulse said...

You should make peach from super mario bros

i think it is very realistic but the first base drawing you had was better. too bad the other artist took it before you were done:(

I have seen Stewie before at Worth1000.com but this is definitely better. Here is an idea for your next untoon: Any Thundercats character. ;) I find it very challenging and would probably be amazing. ;)

Keep up the good work! I'm always looking forward for your next one.

This is way better than the one in the link you posted. Top notch work. I have never seen something so amazing.

Zeno said...

Since Stewie Griffin is quite obviously the reincarnation of a British-accented authoritarian with tendencies toward world conquest, who was he in his previous life?

I think I know.

Peter/Germany said...

Your work is always great and awesome. I really like it.
Also this one is a masterpiece of untooning. Though .. IMO you missed the point a little bit. The original looks more evil .. somehow. ;)
As mentioned earlier alrerady, the mouth is kinda weird/wrong. It isnt centered to the nose.

However. Doesnt matter that much. Thanks for the great picture and congrats for the Playstation Magazine date!

rgr / mexico said...

I'm seriusly AMAZED with your work, really, my respects!!!

Quite a gift you have in there...

What tools do you use to make these things, they're so accurate so real... wow, im wordless...

And the Jessica, geez, deluxe...

Congratulations =)

Joe Muggs said...

Are you familiar with the works of Mark Ryden? This looks strangely like some of his work... which is really funny as he works the other way round, making "real" celebrities look more cartoonish...

Maybe you should do a character from a Japanese cartoon (anime) next, such as Sailor Moon. How's that?

Amazing work! Can you do Professor Farnsworth or Leela?

Ignore the fools who keep knocking your work and then say that they aren't critiquing, just admiring. It sounds more like jealousy.

Ursula W said...

Just a tiny critique: Maybe make the skin a bit blotchy. Babies have red noses and they always seem to acquire mysterious food crusties around their mouths. Well, at least my baby does. Anyhow, maybe adding some imperfections might help it untoon a little more. Amazing work, none the less!

Anonymous said...

Holy shizz, thats awesome. The Jessy Rabbit picture is my favorite.

Hard work kudos for you, my man.

Please, for the love of all that is holy, say that you'll do Harley Quinn. Due to the colouring and such, it would be hard, but I think you could do it. ;)

Family Guy is so popular show. This is my favokrite show and Its each episode is so funny and interesting too.
