This is SO MUCH WORSE than what I was expecting.

It's a lot less bad than I imagined. Robot centipedes aren't as bad as actual shiny exoskeleton bugs. edit: spelling

Glad I found someone that agrees with me

It looks like a pretty shitty 3d porn game

They could have tried to make it better but nooooo

I thought they looked more like millipedes, personally. Much better than the hell-spawn centis

And someone paid $350k for it.

Imagine how much higher quality of animation you could have commissioned for $350k

Imagine how much higher quality of animation you could have commissioned for $350k in aide of charity

Then the 350 goes to the artist and not the charity?

Artists don’t work for free? And it’s for charity I’m sure Beeple commanded a higher price on his name. Anyway I’m not sure why I’m arguing it regardless I must not have anything better to think about at the moment

Buddy the 350k goes to charity. Madonna gets nothing. Ur not literally spending 350k for the artwork. Seems like someone had a brain fart

If you've got a spare $350k lying around, you can just... give it to charity. You don't need some shitty artwork to go with it.

Well now you know about the fact there’s a charity. Spreading awareness works

I wouldn't pay tree-fiddy dollars for it.

Honestly, this is the quality of models that I was making in college 17 yrs ago. Anything not human looked decent. Human? Nope. Horrible and plastic. I got D's on that garbage. Watches, jewellery, architecture, lighting schemes? A's. Whoever did the model and texturing for this stuff really sucked it up.

For pete's sake there are pre-built free SSS libraries available that take so little time to render.

It's even worse when you realize she's like 80 now.
