Artist Imagines What Real-Life Disney Characters Would Look Like

 

In an ongoing series entitled, ‘Real Life Disney‘, Jirka Väätäinen uses a combination of digital compositing, photo manipulation and digital painting to envision what popular Disney characters might look like in real life.

The Finnish artist, who currently lives in Melbourne, Australia, recently told MTV News:

 

“I have always been interested in character design, as well as the way people look and what makes them unique in their appearances. I was inspired by the idea of recreating these characters that we all know and love, in a way I would imagine them to look like if they were ‘more real’, while still staying somewhat true to the unrealistic quirks in their original character designs.” [source]

 

The artist is currently available for commissions. You can see much more of his artworks at the links below:
