3D Art of SpongeBob and Patrick “in Real Life” is Deeply Unsettling

He lives in a pineapple under the sea… and he’s coming for your soul.

Kids the world over absolutely love SpongeBob Squarepants, the charming star of the same-named animated series that premiered back in 1999 and is still going strong to this day. The bright yellow sea sponge, who wears a white shirt, red tie and brown pants, may seem cute and cuddly in the world of animation, but oh boy does that cuteness go away when he enters our world.

3D artist Miguel Vasquez has terrified the internet this week with his “Best Friends Forever” project, which imagines both SpongeBob and friend Patrick Star (a pink starfish in the animated series) as, well, real life monstrosities. The speed sculpts were rendered in Keyshot, and they’re totally NSFC – not… safe… for… children.

Vasquez says that he’s working on Squidward next.

We’re not so sure we can handle that.

    SpongeBob is missing his eyelashes. Otherwise pretty cool.

  • THE God

    This is fucking dope lol

  • Otterlee

    I don’t know whether to comfort my eyes or applaud them. This is disturbing.

  • MeeGhoulz

    Ctulhu be praised!

  • Bryan Haldeman

    Patrick don’t take no shit.

  • Darkknight2149

    Dammit. I told my parents not to participate in this photoshoot. They never listen.

  • AdamX

    Harambe Patrick…

  • Alanmac

    Patrick has bell end head.

  • Necro

    These are disturbingly sick! I love ’em! I hope they get trademarked and sold as a new line of figures. Awhile back McFarlane did ‘Twisted Wizard of Oz’ and they were great. I think anything G rated with a Horror twist are always a kick-ass concept. Bring ’em on!

  • Tyree

    Michael Bay’s Spongebob Squarepants… Coming Summer 2019… With Megan Fox as Gary.

  • Cool.

  • Some things were never meant for ZBrush. Or mortal eyes.

  • I hope they will be in the next Resident Evil!

  • James Allard

    This is the film I want.

    If Spongebob had eyelashes worked in somehow and if Patrick looked really much more stupid I’d be happier with this… It’s really cool but… *Sigh* 😛

  • Meisha’s Taint

    That’s not what patrick looks like

  • Nice as said in the comments a few things are missing and Patrick looks way too serious but if it’s the way the artist wanted to go I totally ship this.

  • HalesTales

    I love this. Patrick just needs a some black Coke bottle glasses and he’d pass for a Butterball the Cenobite!

    I just imagine if this was a movie, since we haven’t seen Squidward yet, someone’s stranded in Bikini Bottom and they knock on the door of the pleasant pineapple house, thinking it’s someone friendly, then you get that wide-eyed sponge answering the door. His demeanor and attitude is akin to Max Schreck’s Nosferatu: friendly enough to basically pass, but definitely unsettling. After beating around the bush a while to get the stranded one some help, neighbor Patrick Star comes over for dinner and ends up being an unstoppable slasher like Michael under Spongebob’s thrall. The person escapes to the neighbor’s house next door and . . . you know why we haven’t seen Squidward yet? Because he’s an unspeakable Lovecraftian horror.
