6 Anatomically Correct Skulls Of Your Favorite Cartoon Characters

Published 4 weeks ago

Filip Hodas is a 3D illustrator from Prague, Czech Republic, who recently decided to do a different take on some of your favorite cartoon characters – and no, this time it won’t be a Disney makeover. In his latest project, titled Cartoon Fossils, the artist designed the anatomically correct skulls of some well-known cartoon characters and they look eerily realistic. He even came up with Latin names for all of them!

Check out the spooky skulls in the gallery below!

In an interview with Bored Panda, Filip revealed that he came up with the idea for this project after finishing his Pop Culture Apocalypse series. He mentioned that he was feeling burned out and wanted to try something different. He tried his hand at creating some funky animal skulls and decided to combine them with cartoon characters.

“I was really into dinosaurs and their fossils as a little kid. When I got older, I thought skulls were very badass, so I would draw them often,” revealed the artist. “Skulls were among the first things that I had at least some idea of how to sculpt. The first one I was proud of looks terrible in retrospect!”

Filip says that the mouse and bird skulls were the most challenging to create. “They have all those little holes, crevices, and fine details and it’s very difficult to imagine their shape in 3D,” said the artist.

Even though Filip tried to make the skulls as realistic as possible, there were times where he had no choice but to improvise: “Obviously, a mouse skull wouldn’t have ears or that arching pointy part defining the eye shape, but without the ears and clearly defined eye shape it just didn’t look like the cartoon at all!”

Filip says he tried to create a sense of nostalgia, recreate long-forgotten worlds and visions, and mix them up with the ideas from his own mind as a kid. Needless to say, the artist definitely succeeded and we’re not sure we’ll be able to look at the characters the same way again.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
