Spongebob Squarepants and Friends Get a Realistic Makeover

The announcement that Spongebob Squarepants and friends are getting another movie has produced a range of tribute art, yet this collection from XiaozuoZ, an artist in Hubei Province, China, is perhaps one of the most exciting. It re-imagines the silly sea creatures in human form, something children have probably wondered about at one point or another. Taking on an anime sort of style, Spongebob Squarepants and friends still maintain certain characteristics that made them such a hit to begin with.

For instance, the titular character himself is dressed in the usual white shirt and red tie whereas Patrick Star sports pink hair and a Hawaiian getup. Although Spongebob Squarepants and friends look much more sophisticated and, strangely enough, very sexy, it is interesting to see another person's take on the franchise.
