A return to the stop-motion here with Crooked (Orcus) Rot. This started off as an experiment to see if stop-frame would be any better using an SLR camera. The result would certainly suggest so visually, but it was a hell of a lot harder. This project really began when I discovered a treasure cave of strange items in my own back yard including mannequin heads and rubber hands. It inspired me so much that every time I returned I gathered more inspiration. Originally I focused on capturing light which is why the SLR was so important, but eventually it almost became a sequel to Hell with all the blood flying about . Composer Marcus Fjellström who donated some of his music for Men From Up The Stairs became interested in the project when I posted a few screen shots on Newgrounds and went on to compose the entire musical score. This is interesting because it’s the first time that I have made a video first and then sent it to someone else to do the music.

This video is 100% stop-frame. There is no CGI, after effects or computer filters used to create any of the effects.

Astounding Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Art Brings the Cartoon Heroes to Grim Reality

Astounding Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles art brings the cartoon heroes to grim reality What if Shredder, Splinter, Rocksteady and Bebop were real? What if the toxic ooze that created the 90s action film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles spilled into the sewers today? The results would probably look a lot like this.

Artist Dave Rapoza has updated the TMNT, and given them all a brand new real-life look. Even the creepy little fly villain, Baxter, from the cartoon got a makeover! Each new piece is both gorgeous and horrifying at the same time. It definitely makes us yearn for the old days of the Foot Clan.

Buy prints (and see plenty of more excellent art) at Rapoza’s website.
