Mario Kart Stop-Motion Animation Using 3D Chalk Art
Chalk it up to Chris Carlson for making this amazing stop-motion video of Mario Kart in the real world.
Nintendo achieved Mario Kart in 3D with the seventh installment of their popular Mario & friends racer back in 2011, but when it comes to Mario Kart in real life, awesome chalk artist Chris Carlson managed to get a step up on the company with his latest project.
Chris, as you may not know (or maybe you do know?), has demonstrated his boss chalk skills in a smorgasbord of videogame-inspired creations – be it the classic likes of Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and a eye-bending M.C. Escher take on Donkey Kong.
Never to disappoint, this time Chris used a simple 3D chalk image of Yoshi on his go-kart, and made a rather cool stop-motion animation of the rad dino driving on real streets (well, suburban streets), snaking around corners, and avoiding turtle-shell throwing skateboarders.
Turtle-shell throwing skateboarders, eh? I swear, kids these days. Them and their rap-music and twerking. Anyway, this video by Chris and his friends is impressive, in both motion and concept, and reminds us why go-karts, in general, are awesome things.
