I love animated movies, and I love Disney movies. Jirka Väätäinen has undertaken a project to redraw the princesses of the Disney movies as they might look if they were “real” people. I think she’s done a wonderful job.
I’m not a very “visual” person. When I read a description of a setting or a character, I have a hard time picturing it, and it’s easiest for me if I have something to work from. That may be one of the reasons I’m so enamored of different types of art, and why I really really wish I could draw. Those art classes I had in high school didn’t do me much good!
In any case, whether you’re a fan of Disney or not, take a look at this artist’s blog. Her work is beautiful, and as a writer, I feel like it’s important to support other artists.
