* Many webcomics that use CGI models, such as in Poser or DAZ Studio, are subject to this. Poser simply has big problems with the Valley, since depending on the skill of the artist using it and the amount of time and money he's willing to invest in creating panels, it can range from passable to downright horrifying.

Poser simply has big problems with the Valley, since depending on the skill of the artist using it it, the quality of the figure textures and morphs he/she is using (there are literally thousands of morphs and textures available for the popular base figure such as Daz3D's Victoria and Michael series and the quality is just as widely varying), and the amount of time and money he's he or she is willing to invest in creating panels, it can range from passable to downright horrifying.

* According to Lucias, the Seraphim from ''TwoKeys'' are this. Probably isn't helped by the fact that they have extremely pale skin with [[BlackEyesOfEvil pitch black eyes]]
* While the ''CtrlAltDel'' characters look fine on paper, they become horrible, twisting abominations when animated.
* ''QuestionableContent'':

* ''SuicideForHire'' is a rare subversion of the logic behind FurriesAreEasierToDraw. There's just something not right about the character faces...
* ''{{Unshelved}}'' presents: [[http://www.unshelved.com/2004-3-1 vegan food]]. Almost like real stuff... almost.

* In ''DresdenCodak'', Kimiko Ross tends to cover her cyborg arm with a long sleeve because "it ''always'' creeped people out".
* ''ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'' explains the valley [[http://thepunchlineismachismo.com/archives/730 here]] from cartoon to creepy and back again,
* No Face from ''YuMeDream'' is an easily accomplished attempt at making something human, but disgustingly monstrous. He also eats hearts, just to add to the (puneriffic) images of terror.

* In ''{{Starslip}}'', the attempts of the ameboid [[BlobMonster Dahk]] to look human are... [[http://starslip.com/2011/06/03/quick-change-technician/ less than appealing]] to say the least.

** Arguably, the characters fall to the left of the valley, as they are cartoony enough to avoid being uncanny.

* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'': When Jones reveals to Annie that [[spoiler:she's not human and can't feel emotions]], we ([[TakeOurWordForIt or at least Annie]]) also find out why she never seems to smile ([[spoiler:or rather why she doesn't bother trying to mimic emotions]]). This bonus strip is fittingly named [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=1127 "Uncanny Jonsey".]]

* The [[RobotGirl Alpha Droids]] of ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'' are more cute than anything, though their inexpressive, jewel-like eyes can be a little creepy. But it's when they [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2012/11/11/mouse-shut-up/ shut down]] that they plunge right into the valley, with their [[DiesWideShut blank-eyed, corpse-like expression]]. [[spoiler: Even worse is former BigBad [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2012/09/09/she-dun-goofed/ Zenith's breakdown]], having been the most "human" of the bunch. [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2012/10/27/not-making-it-easy/ She's later booted back up, completely devoid of any personality, with a blank, [[RedEyesTakeWarning red-eyed stare]] to match.]]
