Artist reimagines animated heroines with realistic features

These artworks feature intricately drawn Disney princesses and other female cartoon characters

Though animation has evolved so much since its inception, characters from classic animated movies and TV series remain beloved by fans. And because most of those characters were originally illustrated in a non-realistic or semi-realistic style, artist Isabelle Staub has redrawn some of them with more true-to-life features, giving fans a rough idea on what their favorite cartoon characters would look like if they were real people. A lot of Staub’s works feature Disney princesses, but she has also reimaigined Cartoon Network’s The Powerpuff Girls, and Disney Channel’s Kim Possible. Take a look at some of Staub’s fantastic artworks in the slideshow below:

Though Staub’s version of Ariel looks a little bit more mature than Disney’s, there’s no denying that the fan-created incarnation of the Little Mermaid character looks more attractive than the original. Staub’s Ariel has bushier eyebrows, lovelier eyes, and shinier red locks. The artist also made the mermaid’s lips smaller and rounder, adding a touch of sultriness to the overall appearance of the Princess of Atlantica.
