Classical art is beautiful to look at, but some of us have a hard time relating to it. A digital artist on Tumblr named Lothlenan is changing that by turning some of fine art's most timeless pieces into geeky fantasy settings. So far, they've revamped 7 tableaux, inspired by fandoms like Sailor Moon, Adventure Time, and The Legend of Zelda. It's amazing how century-old paintings take on such a modern feel when combined with elements of Anime!

If you're a geek extraordinaire and can't even deal with how flipping cool these paintings are, you're in luck - Lothlenon currently operates a Redbubble store where they sell stunning prints of each design. Who wouldn't want an impressionist Totoro-à-la-Monet on their wall?

Check out all 7 made-over masterpieces below, and don't forget to vote for your favourite!

There is no comparison, the ones on the left are masterpieces, the others are just cartoons for kids.
