Real Life Smurf

29Sep11

For those of you who saw the Smurf live-action film from a few months ago you might think that if Smurfs were real they’d look like this.

However artist Nate Hallinan has a different vision of what a real life Smurf would look like which is depicted in this digital painting.

Nate believes that Smurfs would look less like tiny blue men and more like some sort of cat/mushroom hybrids.

According to Nate,

The Smurf is actually the result of a symbiotic relationship between two organisms. We believe that Smurfs put their ’embryos’ in the button of a developing mushroom. From a distance, Smurfs seem like they are wearing a hat and pants but as you can see this is a fallacy. The fungus provides camouflage and protective epidermal layers for the creature, while the creature provides nutrients and mobility for the spreading of spores.

Smurfs are believed to be a hunter gatherer society. As you can see, this little guy is returning from a successful venture. It is generally difficult to spot a Smurf; they are very apprehensive and cunning. Sadly though, it is rumored that they are hunted for their medicinal properties. It’s hard to determine but it is thought that there are not many colonies of Smurf left.
