TikTok 3D artist turns pop stars into Pokémon
Have you ever imagined what your favorite pop stars would look like as Pokémon?
TikTok user @Leorgasmic, real name Léo Dupuy, goes viral for his Pokémon 3D avatars inspired by popular artists.
Its first creation was a Pokémon based on Lady Gaga, whose alter ego Pocket Monster name is Romama, inspired by a saying from “Bad Romance”.
The red and white avatar design is based on one of Gaga’s iconic “Bad Romance” costumes. Musical clip. (The Dark Pokémon even does the iconic dance move in the video!)
Meanwhile, Ariana Grande’s Pokémon was inspired by her “Dangerous Woman” music video. Grande’s character belongs to the “fairy” and “dark” categories.
“Meet Fairyana, the high-end Pokémon”, Dupuy wrote. “The old books say anyone who hears her song will instantly be turned into a BAD B — H.”
Oddly enough, Grande is a real-life Pokémon fan: in 2019, she had the character Eevee tattooed in black and white on her inner elbow.
Billie Eilish also received the Pokémon treatment. Her character features the creepy black tears from her “When The Party’s Over” music video, as well as her old blue and green hair. It is classified as “ghost” and “water”.
“Meet Lamenteilish, the Pokémon of Sorrow. This Pokémon is so consumed with sadness that it cannot move. Over time, he learned to use his tears to fight and overcome obstacles, ”explained Dupuy.
Dupuy’s latest creation is a feline-themed Pokemon based on Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” music video, with an ancient Egyptian theme. See the psychic Pokémon called Kittyleery, below:
Dupuy even shared a video of his animation process, which just reveals a glimpse of the hours of work that go into his designs.
