Probably the greatest issues about cartoons is that in contrast to precise actors they by no means must get outdated. Bart, Lisa, and Maggie can nonetheless be youngsters for 33 seasons of The Simpsons. Identical to the Scooby Doo gang can drive the Thriller Machine for many years with out ever filling out Medicare paperwork. And since cartoons don’t age, we by no means have to consider their mortality. Not less than we didn’t till we noticed this artist’s anatomically appropriate 3D-renderings of animated characters’ skulls. However don’t fear, they’re so cool you’ll nonetheless be capable to ignore the considered SpongeBob really dying. Not less than for just a little bit.
Czech freelance 3D artist Filip Hodas has turned traditional cartoons into artistic endeavors which are each macabre and playful. His Cartoon Fossils assortment (which we first got here throughout at Bored Panda) imagines what lies beneath the animated pores and skin and muscle of some well-known animated options. (With some defining options like hats and glasses to make every pc rendering simply recognizable.) That features—aww gawrsh— Canis Goofus, the cranium of Goofy. In addition to Anas Scroogius, the cranial stays of Scrooge McDuck. A poignant reminder that dying awaits the wealthy and poor alike.
And who resides in a coffin below the ocean? The barnacle-encrusted cranium of Spongia Bobæ, SpongeBob Squarepants. He’s joined within the assortment by the decaying head of Homo Popoculis. As Popeye proves no quantity of spinach could make you highly effective sufficient to defeat the Grim Reaper.
Hodas additionally memorialized Mus Minnius (Minnie Mouse) and Canaria Tweeta (Tweety Hen). Their skulls additionally stand as a testomony to the cats who clearly killed them and cleaned their bones dry.
This assortment is only one of many Hodas has created. Make sure that to take a look at extra of his improbable 3D work at his Bēhance, Instagram, and Fb pages. That features one other line of anatomically appropriate skulls. That one celebrates useless memes.
Positive, his work has us doing one thing we by no means have earlier than and by no means wished to do. We’re enthusiastic about Goofy’s funeral. However that’s what makes this assortment so good. Cartoons don’t really must die. And so they don’t even have skulls.
