Kratos Speed Painting: the Gods of War Approve

Kratos Speed Painting: the Gods of War Approve
Watch as artist Robert Mangaoang (aka “Doom CMYK “) creates a digital illustration of Kratos from God of War 3 in this awesome time-lapse painting session he did using Photoshop CS3 and his Wacom tablet. The authentic music from the game really puts me in the mood to dust of my game disc and play through again.

Death Star Cake: the Empire Will Take Two Please
Pastry Jedi/awesome baker/awesomer mom Lisa Smiley made this huge Death Star-topped birthday cake for her son’s 9th birthday. I guess we should expect nothing less than magical things from a person whose last name is Smiley.

Stormtrooper Eye Chart

Stormtrooper Eye Chart
I laughed out loud when I saw this image. Come on, isn’t it hilarious? Two stormtroopers giving you an eye exam, making sure you know exactly how they feel! My most recent eye exam was pretty painless, but you better believe that I would have preferred to read out loud these letters instead of the regular E-P-F-T-O-Z, etc…

Circuit Board Sculpture: Artist Turns Computer Innards Into Art
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve always found circuit boards interesting. Yes, that partly means “I don’t understand what the hell is going on here”, but I really do find the patterns mysterious and amazing, because a human like me designed this, and it’s this engraved soul of the computer that lets me check out cat videos on YouTube.
