So far, people have seen the likes of hyper-real Pokemon and Simpsons characters; but wait till you see what Darick Maasen has in store for gamers.

Even if you haven't played Mario, you'll probably recognize the Koopa Paratroopa character, which is a turtle with a red shell that has wings attached to it. If you've never imagined what this reptilian creature would look like in real life, Darick Maasen's hyper-real version of the character will give you a pretty good idea. The artist has created a taxidermy version of the Koopa Paratroopa with the red and white shell complete with wings. I'd say that this is an accurate representation.

The realistic version of the Koopa Paratroopa was created for an upcoming video game-related art show.
