Did you ever wish to have your star moment in a blockbuster? How about an animated hit? Lance Phan is a gifted digital artist who makes strangers’ childhood dreams come true by transforming them into awesome cartoon characters that look like they stepped out from a new Pixar or Disney film.

Lance has an inarguably incredible set of skills, but the magic of his work lies in the details that give animated characters a real and charming personality. His character designs perfectly resemble the human subjects and whole fantastic animated worlds around them that could serve as an inspiration for a new movie script. From a walk in the park to a cute relationship and a wedding photoshoot – his digital drawings are as uniquely diverse as people’s lives are.

Previously featured on Bored Panda, the artist returns with more cool drawings that have gained him 101k followers on Instagram and countless commission requests on his website.

Her blouse alone is a work of art and she seems so serene.

While I adore other pieces of his art, this one isn't very compelling for me. It looks more plain and underdone, as if artist pays less attention to the details, comparing to his other works.

Ooh the mom looks so villainous :) she'd be the perfect antagonist for a movie with a wonderful redemption arc- affection for her son

This one has the same problem as one of the previous ones. Her smile is just a bit too fake. Her skin also looks sort of plastic. Again, no offense to the creator.
