It’s no secret that Disney cartoons and their heroes helped shape the lives of many. Some of the most adorable animal characters with big eyes and kind smiles taught us how to be loving, generous, and brave. So no wonder why so many people wish to see their favorite furry friends as colorful animated creatures.

One artist, Isa Bredt, a 23-year-old illustrator from the Netherlands, makes it possible. She is the author behind the famous Instagram account called "Pet Disneyfication". Since 2014, she transforms pictures of people’s pets into Disneyesque illustrations, and it’s a whole new level of cuteness.

We have collected some of the best drawings of cats, dogs, rabbits, and more from her account. Continue scrolling, upvote your favorites and make sure to check out our previous post about her right here! Psst, if you’re in the mood for more Disney-like transformations, you can find them here and here

Goodbye Sweet Phoenix ❤️

Per an article about this sweetheart, this is not due to human abuse or dog fighting (finally!) He actually has a skin disorder: " Doctors have concluded that Phoenix has a rare autoimmune disease called Systemic Lupus Erythematosus" The singer Seal has the same disorder, and similar facial scarring, interestingly enough.

“Disneyfication” is a term that’s been used by sociologists to describe the transformation of things or environments to resemble the Walt Disney theme parks and resorts. In this case, it’s our beloved pets that get carried into the world of Disney-like animation, and it’s truly charming. 

Isa Bredt always had a passion for animals and art, so it was a no-brainer to combine the two and become a pet portrait artist. According to her website, her greatest inspirations are the old 2D animated works from Disney, Dreamworks and Don Bluth. “In my portraits, I try to capture an animal’s spirit, with the twist that they look like they could star in their very own animated movie,” she wrote. 

She has been drawing since she was very young and started sharing her work on Reddit when she was 16. After that, the project grew really quickly. Bored Panda reached out to the artist to talk about the process behind her work and how it evolved over the years.

When asked about her favorite part of the process, Bredt told us that it’s the start of the drawing: “​​Looking at all the pictures, finding things that make an animal special, and then making the initial sketch. I love analyzing what features are unique to the pet that I’m drawing.”

Since the last time we spoke, the artist admitted that there haven’t been any specifically significant changes, other than the fact that she has improved a lot. “Especially painting my backgrounds used to be a big struggle, and I mean, it’s still a struggle but the end results are a lot better,” she said.

Her work is truly magical and admired by many: “People are so sweet! Especially if I’ve made a portrait of a pet that has unfortunately passed away, people send me the kindest messages, saying that the drawing brought tears to their eyes. Or that it helped them heal because pictures of their pet made them cry, but the portrait made them smile.”

Bredt does not only work based on commissions, but also does her own projects, like working her magic on our favorite Instagram animals or just any furry friends that inspire her. Also, she started Disneyfying animals from shelters as a way to give back. While she does not remember exactly how she came up with the idea, she definitely wanted to use her platform for something good.

“I think it was while I was browsing a shelter site (the site where I adopted my cats from) and I wished I could help the animals that had been in the shelter the longest, somehow,” she told us. “But it is also possible one of my followers recommended it one time and I’m just taking unjust credit haha! Either way, I wanted to do something to help.”

Although the illustrator is not sure if she helps all of the shelter animals that she draws, she has contributed to making a few of their lives better. “There are only two cases where I know my portrait really worked: Diesel, a dog that got adopted because the shelter added my drawing to his adoption page,” Bredt said. “And Benji, a dog that was too traumatized to be adopted by a normal family. The shelter had to raise money to get him to a sanctuary but a scared pit bull isn’t very popular, unfortunately, so featuring him on my page really helped them meet their goal.”

Isa Bredt leaves us with a few thoughts: “Give your local shelters some love, they can always use some donations, and enjoy the holidays!” And if you think that your pet is Disney-levels of cute and wish to have an adorable pet portrait yourself, don’t be shy and get in touch!

🌼on A More Personal Note:⁣
i Want To Apologize For Not Posting For A While - Work And The Covid Lockdown Have Been Getting To Me. ⁣
like Some Of You Know, I Work From Home, Making These Portraits Full Time. It’s A Wonderful Job That I Am So So Happy With. But Sitting Still, Drawing On A Computer For A Full Work Day Isn’t The Best Thing To Do For Your Body (And Without Being Able To Socialize - Your Mental Health). I Used To Work A Full Day, Eat Dinner And Then Work For Another Few Hours On An Ig Post (Or Use My Weekends To Make The Ig Drawings) And I Realized That Isn’t The Healthiest Thing In The World.⁣
i Want To Be Able To Do This For A Loooooong Time And Getting Burned Out Or Getting An Injury Like Rsi Is Something I Need To Look Out For. ⁣
⁣
i Am So Grateful For All The Love And Support I Get Here, And I Hope You Understand Why My Posts Were And Probably Will Be Irregular For A While. ❤️⁣
thanks So Much For Sticking Around.⁣
