Based in Jakarta, retoucher Aditya Aryanto recently had a simple idea: what if real life animals looked more like the cubic creations in the game Minecraft?

Using public domain images, he pulled them into Photoshop, and used the liquify curves tool to transform the animals into unnaturally straight lines.

“I am interested in the cubical shape and trying to change some animal form into cubes. First, I was afraid if it would be nicer than the original shape,” he said. “I was really curious about the results, so I tried to find some funny animal pictures to be changed into Anicube. I found animal pictures from Unsplash and Pixabay. Once I collected, I started making these images in Photoshop.”

Fany giving it a try? In Photoshop, just use the Liquify tool and shape to your heart's content (Shift+Command+X). You can see the full album here.
