Skittle Link Attack by mattmcmanis Skittle Link Attack by mattmcmanis
An animation of Link, from The Legend of Zelda, made out of real Skittles. I photographed it frame by frame.

The animation took 7 frames and 4 hours to lay out, Skittle by Skittle.


You can see more Skittle Art in my gallery.

Skittle Link Attack by =mattmcmanis is crazy cool! Suggester said "Creating artworks skittle by skittle is already an amazing but hard job but animating it frame by frame is another. It takes is a lot of patience and self-control (so you won't end up eating the whole bag)." =mattmcmanis also created the #skittleart group on deviantart for other artists to submit their work! Check out the rest of his gallery. ( Featured by Moonbeam13 )

I think your running Mega-Man Skittle art probably is the most impressive, but this one is still the most fun to watch, lol.
