Artist Shows What Anatomically “Correct” Skeletons Of Popular Cartoon Characters Would Look Like (11 Pics) Interview With Artist
All of the cartoon characters down below are very well known. Maybe you didn't watch their cartoons, but you've definitely seen them. What you haven't seen, however, are their skeletons. And we don't mean the metaphorical skeletons in the closet, but the literal anatomical skeletons of their bodies.
Luís Rogério Faria Rosa, 46, from Brazil, satisfies this curiosity by creating skeletal representations of these 11 famous cartoon characters. Using Photoshop, he tweaked and edited human skeletons so that they would fit their recognizable shape. At some point in your life, you've had a thought that cartoon characters don't look like real humans. The artist did the work to see just how strange they really are.

From new to old cartoons, the digital artist made eleven examples of cartoon characters' skeletons. In my opinion, one of the most extremely ridiculous shapes are that of Phineas from Phineas and Ferb, or Donald Duck, but the list shows there's a whole spectrum of strange examples. Take a look and see for yourself!
The artist spoke to Bored Panda: “I am very observant in the details; since I was a child, I noticed that some characters had parts of the body that anatomically did not correspond to normal, and I wondered what their skeleton would be behind those bodies. Today's cartoons abuse even more contours that would be difficult to exist in a human or animal form. So, with that in mind, I chose some characters from current drawings and others that have been well known for decades and decided to imagine if they had skeletons."

"I am an accountant, and I've used the Photoshop tool for my personal hobby for about 10 years. I also do photo restoration and photomontage work. I am self-taught; I learned to draw, use Photoshop since I was a child, all alone, just watching videos and tutorials. In this work, I used purely Photoshop, using skeletons of normal people and animals, and deforming the bones to fit the cartoon characters' shape."
