Giraffes as tall as skyscrapers, gigantic insects, Godzilla-sized sloths, or cute pets turned into monsters—these humongous animals are nightmare fuel. Luckily for us, we don‘t have to experience this messed-up world to witness it, thanks to digital manipulation.

DesignCrowd asked digital artists from all over the world to depict animals disproportionately larger in relation to other objects and they delivered. The key to this hoax contest called Oversized Animals is ironically not to get caught up in the process and overdo it, so the images remain somewhat “realistic” and believable.

13 Photoshop contests and hundreds of oddly satisfying submissions later, we have selected the best results that will make you feel relieved that animals are the size that they are.

This is Tombili, a beloved street cat who lived in Istanbul, Turkey. She was famous for her friendliness and cute way of leaning against a step in her neighborhood. After she passed away, 17,000 people signed a petition that a bronze statue of her be created and placed at her favorite spot: https://www.awesomeinventions.com/tombili-cat-statue-istanbul/
