Famous Disney Characters Brought To Life Through Portraits

Famous Disney Characters Brought To Life Through Portraits

Thanks to Deviantart artist Karen Graw, you no longer have to imagine what famous Disney characters would look like in real life. Graw translated some of Disney's most famous animated characters into composite portraits and the results are very realistic. Graw admits they aren't perfect, but we think they are a very good representation. 

"These are what Disney characters would look like if they were real. Lots of references (see if you can spot some famous features). Lots of manipulations and perfecting until I got the right features and made them real enough looking. if some don't look exactly like the characters, well cut me some slack, there's not a lot of people out there that look like some of the most ridiculously proportioned Disney characters (Herclues, Cruella, villains, etc) Also, I made them as realistic as possible. See if you can guess who is who.

Imperative Ideas' Ian Armstrong set up an interactive version of the project, which allows you to flip over the characters to see their animated equivalents. Below is a list for you to guess and compare.

Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, Mother Gothel, Tiana, Charlotte La Bouff, Esmeralda, Frollo, Quasimodo


Mulan, Alice, Jasmine, Aladdin, Aurora, Prince Phillip, Maleficent, Cruella de Vil


Meg, Hercules, Pocahontas, Snow White, The Evil Queen, Ariel, Prince Eric, Ursula


Giselle, Jane, Tarzan, Cinderella, Belle, Prince Adam (The Beast), Gaston, Jafar

Not trying to start something here but, uh, Pocahontas seems a bit....whitewashed. That may just be because of the photos she had to choose from though. I just don't think it looks that much like Pocahontas.

However, I do think the Tangled manipulations are pretty spot on as well as Alice. Heh. :P

Is it just me, or do these "photoshops" appear to be just really clever face merges from that project that let you see all the beautiful faces in the world stacked on top of each other? Something like this morphthing. http://www.morphthing.com/

Should've just used Angela Jolie for Maleficent
