- We may have all made doodles of animals looking incredibly out of proportion during our childhood.
- One dad took his sons’ drawings to a new level by transforming them into “realistic” versions using Photoshop.
- The results ranged from creepy to hilarious, and the family got everyone hooked with their art!
No one can produce realistic art from the get-go. We all get to start from the simple doodles that we drew as kids. While we may cringe at the incredibly inaccurate drawings we produced back then, our relatives tend to cherish those as loving memories.
One dad from London, England, decided to see the humor in his kids’ drawings and decided to bring them to “life.”
Tom Curtis transformed his two sons’ doodles into “realistic” versions using Photoshop. The results range from creepy to downright hilarious, but it only helps the family bond more through art.
Sharing the artworks on their Instagram account, “Things I Have Drawn,” they developed a huge following that allowed him to publish a book! All artworks are based on the doodles of his sons, Dom and Al.
1. Tom showed how his sons’ drawings would look like in real life.
2. Tom shared the moment he saw “one of Dom’s drawings,” and was interested in how kids usually “draw the eyes and mouth on the same side of the head” — kinda like Peppa Pig.
3. Tom was particularly amused by how Dom drew birds with both a beak and mouth.
4. He wondered if somehow “all the things kids drew were actually real, and it was just us stupid adults that weren’t looking hard enough?”
5. So he decided to share the kids’ perceptions with the world.
6. Tom said he was worried at first that his versions would just “end up being really creepy.”
7. But the kids “mainly drew happy animals,” so it was all good.
8. Still, some ended up looking a little creepy.
9. But still in a hilarious way!
10. They got to bond over the project even more during the past year.
11. Tom hopes that their works will encourage other families to explore art as well.
12. He urged adults to encourage kids to create art with their hands, using the traditional paper and pencil.
13. He added that it helps reduce screen time.
14. Making art in the “traditional” way helps kids recharge away from gadgets.
15. Of course, spreading good vibes and laughter across the world is one of its perks.
The love they have received for their art only serves as inspiration for them to make more. We certainly look forward to the evolution of the kids’ art throughout the years!
Check out more pictures on their Instagram page and don’t forget to share these to spread the laughter.
