David Bowie + Cloud Strife + A Foot
I thought David Bowie when I saw the thumbnail
I thought wringing out a washcloth, but with a face.
Is that what they mean by “face cloth?” Something like a more absorbent Lady Cassandra O’Brien.Δ17?
Something like the Shroud of Turin?
I thought it was David Bowie as well. Poor Billy.
I guess I’m the only one that thought Susan Powter + Rod Stewart?
Yes, but that’s brilliant!
I was thinking David Bowie crossed with Ichigo Kurosaki (from Bleach) and a troll doll
Man, Bill Nighy looks like he’s over nine thousand.
[Yes, I know that's Yu-gi-oh.]

Sorry, now I’ll crawl back to my hole and wait for death, or, alternatively, wait for my hair to fall out and then sell it on Etsy.

Y’know, I don’t think it looks like Bowie, but it ain’t that bad.
It’s supposed to be Billy Idol, I think.
I agree, I find it kind of… charmingly expressionistic.
I agree. I kind of like it. Not for $125, but it’s kind of cool.
For reference, here‘s the Bowie.
Damn, guess it stripped my html.
That’s even shittier. Goatse.
Once again, “fan” art, missing the fact that Bowie has two different sized pupils, not two different colored eyes.
Fuck me. That’s scary.
Good god that thing is atrocious.
I love it.
That kind of looks like a grown up Ron Weasley as a borg. Blimey, Harry! Resistance is as futile as my date with Padma Patil!
Has that “human” just been goastsed or is that thing just hideous?
@Queenofsnark I was thinking Ron Weasly too; after being hit by some type of disfigurement spell.
Wow, different sized pupils. Still scary.
The Gods of Anime will have their revenge!
I guess one of his relatives was also a super saiyajin.
I love all the anime references… <3 thanks Bronc for reminding me of how big of a fat ugly anime nerd I am! (And how much I enjoy it) <3
I have to confess I was really cheerful when I saw the Yugi comparison. It is always nice to see there are other anime/manga nerds out there.
And the eyes have it! *shudders*
BITCH I LOOK LIKE GOKU
I thought that was bad, and then I saw this one:
(which, of course, is also part of a treasury).
Her stuff’s not bad, it’s just overpriced for what it is, which I realize can be said for 99.9% of listings on Etsy.
I’ll probably be asking this a lot, but, can you say what it is you like about it?
Amen. Her shit is scary bad.
Aaaand she Put a Bird On It.
The bird one’s just a stamp. A stamp of a bird, repeated over and over on canvas. One of those large foam stamps.
Y’know, I sponge-painted the bathroom at my parents’ house a couple years ago. Think I’ll cut out the drywall and sell that on Etsy!
Translation: I GOT A STENCIL BURNER AND CLEARANCE PAINT AT MICHAEL’S!!!!
Hm, I think it is quite nice. I remember doing something very similar with potato-stamps when I was a kid.
Only I didn’t try to sell it for 149 $.
Out of curiosity, what do you like about it?
I guess it is the simplicity that makes it somewhat appealing to me. It is calming.
But the price is an entirely different matter…
fair enough, chalk that up to different likes and dislikes I guess.
Tokudama, I’m with you on this. The composition is too imbalanced to hit the simplicity that she was trying to go for (at least I think she was trying for)
I agree, there sadly is little balance in the composition. There are way too many evenly spaced birds.
But I still think it is way better than the portraits. I wouldn’t say it is great, but I like the colors and the general idea.
Clearly this is not the day for me to be on the internet.
No, I totally agree with you, tokudama. I just fear the red thumbs of doom.
I totally agree that this looks like it was done with a potato stamp!
Are those shoe prints on the edges?
Yeah… that’s pretty flocked up…
Elaine Stritch + Bea Arthur + Betty White’s Beautician = Their Love-Triangle Son!
Donald Trump + Nancy Grace.
Painted with penis strokes.
Aha, a match for the boobie art!
How else to paint two such dicks?
So true, Alice, so true.
What’s sadder than that painting is the exchange rate to Canadian >_<
It wouldn’t be so bad if the side of his head wasn’t peeling off.
It’s never a good idea to store paintings by a heat source.
That explains a lot. If only it were true.
Billy Idol has a lazy eye?
I wouldn’t call it lazy. It is pretty active, creeping up his forehead, climbing around to the other side of his face. This is not the work of a lazy, this is the work of an industrious eye!
That makes him sound like a fish in the process of evolving into a flounder.
Dragon Ball Z Sutoro-Ku:
Gohan’s pulsing neck veins finally get the best of him.
Don’t forget to kill Philip!
Shaun Of The Dead reference FTW!!!
Don’t give a crap about anime, but Bill Nighy is like unto a god.
Yes! He’s probably the oldest guy I’d ever go out with. Love him.
When did Billy Idol have a stroke?
See, I can say that because the disabled guy had a stroke. His face doesn’t look like that, but he was 28 when he had his stroke.
I showed him the Billy Idol and he said it looked like David Bowie had an accident of some kind.
Like a stroke? Yeah, I got more of a Bowie + industrial accident vibe too.
Her only painting that I can tell who it is without reading the title is Marilyn Manson. And even that one isn’t good, it just looks vaguely like who it’s supposed to be.
Oh, it is supposed to be Marilyn Manson? I thought it was a portrait of the Saw-puppet…
Your “industrial accident” may have caused a conversation I can share on the disabled guy blog… I’ll have to see if this progresses. Thanks a lot!
I can’t wait to read it!
I knew it was Billy Idol by the hair, but if he was going to fight wildfires, wouldn’t he be better off in an asbestos suit and helmet? The smoke seems to be really bothering his eyes.
i actually think they are kind of cool. its obvious that they are meant to be sort of impressionistic. and i could tell who they all were. all im saying is that ive seen way worse, by people who had no idea their paintings looked like the work of an epileptic meth addict with 7 fingers.
This is what too much Regretsy does to you. If it’s not painted by someone’s boobs or butthole, by comparison, it’s not that bad.
Impressionistic? I get the impression that the detox program isn’t very effective.
My Problem is, the pictures don’t look like it is the artist’s chosen style, they look like the artist couldn’t do better and decided to call it their style.
There are some interesting approaches/elements, I’ll give it that, but the [as far as I can see]inadvertent misconceptions of human anatomy are distracting from the stylized elements.
The pictures are okay, but not good enough to be sold in this price-class.
Yay, Bill Nighy was my first guess before I scrolled down! It’s not just the face, something about the way the shoulders look scrunched up, too.
And Bill Nighy’s an old Regretsy favorite. After seeing Larriva’s awesome hopper, I commissioned a Robo Rowe (Mike Rowe) for myself.
What’s with the pound signs? And the yak fur jacket?
How could you pop into that shop and neglect the Marilyn Manson abstract. I think thats overstating the obvious.
Looks like the guy who animated the old A-Ha “Take On Me” video is down on his luck.
I kept thinking to myself, “I’ve seen this before somewhere” . . . that’s it! Thanks!
I thought the same thing. Unfortunately, it took me about 8 years to put the comment up.
1) What’s up with the texturing on the jacket?
2) Why is he wearing an earring that looks like a #?
3) Just why, in general?
Ok, I’ll take a stab at this:
1. It’s decoupage or quite possibly tainted shredded wheat
2. Because earrings that look like & are so 2010
3. Cocaine is a hell of a drug. ~Rick James
Actually, I was asking myself why he has the woman-symbol instead of an ear.
But you are right, it is more likely an earing of some sort, dangling from a simplified ear.
But I would vote for it being an inverted cross rather than #.
Hm, would this make it better or worse..?
+ + = this.
I am embarrassed to admit how much damn energy and time I put into this, my first ever photo comment. Goatse.
I like it!
Yep, I was getting a bit of a Draco Malfoy vibe, too. A sad, sad, old Draco.
A-Ha guy was the first thing I thought of when I saw this picture.
Super Saiyajin Billy Idol!
As the page loaded, and I could see the yellow hair on top, I thought it was Naruto, then when I scrolled down I was like, ”Who the fuck?” then I saw the math with Yu-Gi-Oh and lol’d. I actually still watch that show, and it’s latest version on saturdays. And play Yu-Gi-Oh cards .
The hilarious thing is that I recognized this as Billy Idol from the facebook thumbnail.
Dio Brando, is that you?
what idol is this supposed to be? It looks NOTHING like a golden bull.
Although it is bull of a different kind.
Oh, and I ain’t worshipping that thing.
Poor Billy Idol had a hard time committing to a woman. He just always seemed to have a wandering eye…
*ba dum pish*
He’s gone super saiyan! His power level is… well, you know the rest.
I was thinking more along the lines of +
Frak, I mean
My eyes within that fa-ace
Get the can of ma-ace
My eyes within that fa-ace
With a rebel yell
I cried “No more – abhore!”
Then Billy just cried and realized it was a…
Nice day for a good shredding.
If he looked like that it would be clear why he was dancing with himself.
I’m seeing the love child of Rod Stewart and Nick Nolte.
Bill Nighy! FTW!
This is hands-down the best regretsy math equation ever. XD
The Eighties really did a number on some people, but I’ve never seen it do a paint-by-number….
I actually like this even if it looks more like Viktor than the guy who got me to dance with myself (oh, oh, oh, oh). If I was rich and eccentric I would totally buy it, and display it proudly in a guest bathroom.
Clutch Cargo found the Amanita Muscaria.
God, its eyes aren’t even looking in the same direction.
KILL IT WITH FIRE!
