Artist Recreates Modern Cartoon Scenes in their Classic Animation Styles

I love to highlight talented artists here on the blog and that’s exactly what I wanted to do today with a Twitter user by the name of @YinyangGio14. Yinyang has done something a bit different with their art in comparison to some of the other amazing artists that I have talked about here before. Yinyang has cleverly taken modern scenes from three long running animated series’- The Simpsons, Family Guy and Spongebob Squarepants– and has recreated them to make them look like classic scenes from their earliest seasons.

When a cartoon runs for as long as some of these shows have (The Simpsons has literally been running longer than I have been alive), then a change in animation is a natural process. The Simpsons– for example- switched to a digital art style from traditional cel animation. Cartoons that began in the late 80’s or 90’s- like these three shows did- always had a more hand drawn feel to them due to starting at a time where the use of computer animation was still entirely new. It is easy to differentiate the early seasons of certain shows due to the huge difference in the art style. Yinyang has taken these early art styles and transformed modern scenes from these three shows to make them look like they came from the earlier seasons. These are done so well that they literally look like they have been taken from the shows themselves. I was actually confused the first time I saw the images (before I read the tweet) as I was so sure that they must have been shots from the earlier seasons and yet I didn’t remember the episodes. The trickery is real.

Honestly, this fan art makes me miss the early days of all three cartoons. I grew up with them (even Family Guy which I was definitely too young to be watching) and I miss the earlier seasons as I just feel like all three have kind of declined as the years have passed. Maybe that’s because I’m old and bitter now and nothing will be as good as the old times of yore. Make sure to check out @YinYangGio14 on Twitter, YouTube and Deviantart for more of their awesome artwork.
