Ever wanted to see Disney princesses envisioned in a more realistic look? From Pocahontas to Esmeralda, passing by Little Mermaid, Belle and even the evil Ursula, they’re all reviewed with realistic looks. I was so impressed with this work, I had to share. I don't need to say much more. The pieces speak for themselves. The end results of all the characters are incredible good! Check out the art below and tell us what you think! The photo-manipulations below was created by Finnish graphic design student Jirka Väätäinen: "I find photos all over the Internet and then combine them in Photoshop," he says. "I don't base the characters on only one real person or picture - I pick, mix and blend features. I also do some digital painting, by hand, to make it all come together."
