If Mona Lisa Were Alive Today…

Painted between 1503 and 1506 by Leonardo DaVinci, the portrait of the wife of Francesco del Giocondo (Lisa Gherardini) known as the “Mona Lisa” is one of the most well-known paintings ever produced.

Of course, this was during a time when women of class were more demure, without senseless celebrities to imitate and had less need for attention-getting tactics. You know for certain that if Mona Lisa were alive today, she’d bare at least two thirds of her boobs on her Facebook pic, have at least one unsightly tattoo and she’d probably still shit in a bucket — although she’d make at least one public video of the act.

Time Lapse Speed Painting: Eclectic Asylum

     On March 2nd, I did the article showing off the talent of Nico / Channel Nexx as he speed-painted John Locke in Photoshop, and a Lord of the Rings cover on canvas.  Now that it’s April 2nd, I thinking maybe this should become a regular feature…

     But this one Jason / Eclectic Asylum blew me away even more.  He doesn’t use fancy gimmicks like Photoshop — no way!  He does this in MS Paint, which is unarguably the crappiest piece of Graphics software (well, it’s supposed to be that) ever written!
     I present you with:  The Mona Lisa, in MS Paint.

     Way cool!

     He’s also been running a contest:  “Strike a pose, and get a portrait!”  Now watch him paint the last winner (Daxflame) in Chocolate Syrup:

     Of course, he couldn’t ship a chocolate portrait without nasty melting issues… 

     Be sure sure and check out Eclectic Asylum’s profile on youtube for more examples of him painting with “other” things besides chocolate…
