Every May, several illustrators from all around the world take part in MerMay, an art challenge that dares participants to create a piece of mermaid-themed artwork every day for the whole month. German artist Alex Pick joined this year’s MerMay, and his contributions to the challenge show what Disney Princesses would look like if they were mermaids. Check out Pick’s #MerMay2020 entries in the slideshow below to see what happens when Cinderella, Belle, Aurora, and other Disney royalty trade in their legs for a mermaid tail.
This underwater version of Alice looks cute and tiny in her blue mermaid tail and white seashell top inspired by her signature outfit from the 1951 animated film Alice in Wonderland. The titular character is also riding a seahorse version of the movie’s rocking-horse-fly, which has a yellow body, red saddle and hair, and a pair of transparent wings.
