3D artist SLiD3 has created some pretty cute versions of the most famous characters around. SLiD3, who currently works for Vanguard Games, used his graphic design skills to produce smaller-than-life versions of TV, video game and movie characters from Walter White of ‘Breaking Bad’ to Mario.

Each creation features a couple of characters against a vibrant, solid-colored backdrop. The duo of Daft Punk is made pocket-sized, their famous helmets rendering them bobble-headed. With SLiD3’s work, Shaun and Ed of ‘Shaun of the Dead’ become a tad cuter than their originals, but some characters, such as Mario, become a whole lot scarier.

SLiD3’s work is representative of a new era of pop art. With new graphic design technology and 3D capabilities, pop art will no longer be done by hand; but, as SLiD3 demonstrates, it’s still as fresh and fun as before. Stats for 3D Iconic Character Illustrations Trending: Older & Chilly
