Disney Princes and Princesses in Real Life

If you’ve ever wondered what Disney’s princes and princesses might have looked like in real life, Jirka Väätäinen, a Finnish artist and designer in Melbourne, has answered that question definitively with his series of real-life Disney characters illustrations. Digital artist Jirka Väätäinen has already attracted an enormous fan base with his ‘Real Life Disney Characters’ series, which revealed how Elsa and Anna from Frozen, The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White would look in human form. Cinderella’s Prince Charming, along with Princes Phillip, Eric and Adam from Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast respectively are brought to life through digital painting. John Smith from Pocahontas, Aladdin, Hercules and Tarzan also feature in the series. Just like their cartoon versions, there are brooding eyes, chiseled jawlines, effortlessly coiffed hair, and muscular physiques aplenty amongst the princely portraits. Take a look!
