Untooned Peter Griffin, Not As Good As Pixeloo, But Pretty Damn Close

While it’s not the work of untooning master Pixeloo (the artist behind the untooned versions of Jessica Rabbit, Homer Simpson, and Super Mario), this untooning attempt, which was an entry to a Worth1000 “Reality Cartoon” Photoshop contest, comes pretty damn close to the master himself.

Out Of The Sewers and Into The Gaming Den

I’m a huge fan of Crocodile Dundee and Leatherhead was by far my favorite villain from T.M.N.T.. I can appreciate the time and effort this gamer has put into this case mod but nothing screams “geek” more than spending that much time to put some ‘bling’ on your 360, well maybe except for this awkwardly-designed computer.
