There have been many attempts at untooning characters from The Simpsons, most of them are just exceedingly creepy and all-together unrealistic, but Martin Beyer crafted this portrait of a Mr. Burns bust, which seems to capture a happy medium between realism and the maniacal eccentrics of the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant’s own Montgomery Burns.
The full-fingered hand gesture, the evil grin, the jutting jaw, the beak-like nose, it’s all here. Still creepy, but actually credible enough to possibly be recognized as an actual human, which is more than what we can say about some untooning attempts. The only thing I would have left out is the whole bust motif. The whole nuclear silo lower torso thing is just not making much sense to me.
