Homer Simpson As A Real Human Will Give You Nightmares

We’re all familiar with what Homer Simpson looks like, but the depiction of him as a real human will definitely disturb you. 

Homer hasn’t really changed that much in the last 29 years, and I think it’s safe to say, we’re all happy with the Duff-loving, ‘Doh!’ exclaiming father just the way he is.

However, artist Miguel Vasquez had other ideas, and decided to terrify us all by creating a human version of The Simpsons character.

Miguel, who lives in Ontario, Canada, is a 3D artist, and has found a love for making our favourite cartoon characters come to life.

As incredible as his work is, it’s also kind of disturbing. Unfortunately, this means we’ll never quite see our animated friends in the same way again.

I mean, just look at his version of Spongebob Squarepants. He’s taken a happy-go-lucky sea sponge and turned him into a manic, Frankenstein-looking nightmare:

And then there’s Monster’s Inc.’s Mike Wazowski.

He probably would have been a much more successful scarer if he’d looked the way Miguel wanted him to:

Still having fond memories of your favourite childhood TV shows and movies?

Let me show you real-life Ed, Edd and Eddy:

I’m curious to know what Miguel does with all of these models after he makes them. Imagine having human Spongebob on display in your bedroom, staring up at you with that unnerving smile.

Given the nature of his work, it’s no surprise the artist’s creation of Homer Simpson is the stuff of nightmares.

Human Homer has huge, bloodshot, bulging eyes and a wide mouth, surrounded by the character’s classic beard, with tiny ears sitting under his lack of hair.

The model has a sickly yellowish tinge to its skin to hint at its belonging to the world of The Simpsons, and is even dressed in Homer’s white polo shirt:

I’ll give credit where credit is due – it’s an incredibly detailed piece of work. I just wish it wasn’t so terrifying.

People have been commenting their horror at the artwork.

One person wrote:

Yeah. That’s the stuff of nightmares.

Another said:

I’m now terrified of homer simpson

A third simply added:

I’m unbelievably disturbed.

Some people couldn’t even find the words to express their shock at the real life Homer, and had to rely on memes to do the job:

Miguel explained how he intentionally makes his creations look creepy – and he did so by using his own work as an ‘evil Patrick’ meme.

He captioned the photo:

When people say my 3D artwork is ugly, creepy, and disgusting, but that was the plan along. [sic]

I think I could have lived a long and happy life without ever being introduced to Miguel’s artwork. I’ll be trying to forget about it from now on, but I have a feeling I’m going to be haunted by the images whenever I watch The Simpsons.

At least Miguel’s found his calling. Each to their own, I suppose?
