Have you ever thought about what your favorite childhood characters would look like if they were in a horror movie? Brazilian digital artist Felipe Rui Fernandes, based in Sao Paulo, has really taken this idea to the extremes!

Courage the Cowardly Dog smoking a cigarette, Mickey Mouse looking super creepy, and SpongeBob bringing the chills rather than the usual laughs — check out how Felipe reimagined these famous characters.

Safe to say, I am now officially in my Halloween mood.

The artist told Bored Panda: "Regarding my inspiration to create my models, which most of the time can be a little scary, is actually just a way I found to express some feelings I feel when I see everyday things that people don't normally stop to reflect. Today's values ​​are very distorted, man has lost his connection with the divine in many ways and I like to transpose this visually into my creations, cute and docile-looking characters are campaign mascots that basically have no good intentions. Things like this made me reach the result I've been practicing in recent times. My art expresses a lot the feelings I have in a certain period of time, in my own portfolio you'll find several styles, I can assimilate each phase with a kind of feeling, and I particularly like it because not having a defined style allows me to experiment with various types of language."

Felipe also added: "The idea is always to bring a message of reflection, aesthetically ugly characters, which bring ideas such as self-care or what kind of message in people's subconscious that it wants to promote. It's a way to review all the content I consumed in my childhood and see from the perspective of an adult how all this was questioned and absorbed."

When asked how he got into this sphere, Filipe says: "I've been in contact with art since I was very young, my mother is an artist and since I've known myself, I've been in a studio, having contact with painting. I've always been fascinated with creating, no matter the medium and the technique."

I'm slightly concerned that the way to make them scarier is to make them more realistic
