Well, my day's set. Someone, and by someone I mean artanis-one from Deviant Art, has gone ahead and made several Futurama characters into high-quality realistic busts and sculptures. He picked a few big ones, such as Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth, Turanga Leela, and Nibbler. Oh, and he was kind enough to also do one of Dr. John Zoidberg. Could I be any happier? Probably not unless I had worms right now, which I sadly do not.
The quality we're looking at here is just staggering, and I'm not just saying that because I like Futurama with all of my heart and soul. Taking cartoony and exaggerated characters and imagining them as something more realistic has always been fascinating to me, none more so then when it involves a property I keep so near and dear to my very being, for instance Futurama. According to artanis-one, these four pieces were done with super sculpty blend (I assume sculptors know what that is, probably the same stuff Michelangelo used) and all have bases pending until something clever can be decided upon. So there's one question to address in the comments: What should each character's personal base be?
My favorite is Zoidberg, as always, though what's really strange here is that once you take his design and make it a bit more realistic he sort of looks like a Turian from Mass Effect. Man, could Mass Effect 3 have Femshep running around killing Reapers with this Zoidberg? If so, I would buy you soooo many lizards. Go check out artanis-one's full gallery of work as there's a ton to just gawk at. And as a bonus, Professor Farnsworth's glasses are removed for a few shots, so you can see his eyes, something that the series has never done for us. Looks like we know what space series to be done next then. Yeah, Bucky O'Hare. Let's make this happen, alright?
