Another cheerfully horrifying episode of Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling’s series, Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared. Like the previous videos (4, 3, 2, 1), this latest instalment is filled with their trademark weirdness and turns for the worst, perfectly capturing the inherent terror and confusion of healthy eating! Enjoy below.
I rarely post anything video game related but this one, being developed by Studio MDHR, may interest some of you animators out there! Cuphead is an action game featuring fantastic 1930s style cel animations (hand drawn and hand inked), with watercolour backgrounds, and original jazz music. It looks so fun to play!
Players control two characters, Cuphead and Mugman, who after losing a dice roll with the devil, are forced to do his bidding. The game is slated for release as an XBOX and PC title sometime in 2016. Watch the preview video of the game below!
I recently came across a whole bunch of these cool pixelated Simpsons characters on Tumblr and after clicking through several different pages I found Simpsons Pixels. Not sure how I completely missed this brilliant animation from way back in February (it’s unforgivable really).
This is so awesome! “Weird Simpsons VHS” is a reimagining of The Simpsons’ intro sequence, directed and animated by Paris-based artist Yoann Hervo (who may or may not have been really high at the time). Love the spaced out sound design by Florian Calmer. Watch the animation below!
Ever wondered what Alice in Wonderland would’ve looked like if it were animated by Pablo Picasso or Frida Kahlo? Well artist and programmer Gene Kogan has saved you the trouble by using a neural-style algorithm. Check out Kogan’s reanimation of the tea party scene (in 17 different iconic styles) below!
