Disney Cast ‘Humanimalized’: 30 Animal Characters Turned Into Humans (New Pics) Interview With Artist
I think most of us here have heard about the digital artist and illustrator Alex Pick. He is best known for his Disney character series where he turns the said characters into humans and vice versa. Today he is back at Bored Panda to show off some of his newest works that are infused purely with his imagination, letting him portray Disney characters in a different way.
As we mentioned before, he transforms animal characters into humans and humans into animals, always maintaining the style, aesthetics, and personal traits of those certain characters.
In a recent interview, Alex told us a little bit about the things that influenced him and his art when he was growing up.
"I grew up in the time when 2D Disney movies had their big time and they had a major impact on me. I always dreamed to work on these movies or at least in that style. It’s like living the fairytale princess dream. I'm absolutely influenced by daily life, Instagram, movies, and viral series."

Bored Panda reached out to Alex with some questions! First, we asked Alex what was the reason behind his art style being so Disney-like.
"I’ve grown up watching Disney movies like 'Beauty and the Beast,' 'Ariel the little mermaid,' '101 Dalmatians;' 'The Lion King' and all the other ones and they had such a massive impact on me. I always dreamed as a kid to become an artist one day and draw like the artists working at these movies. I think I still dream of this by drawing so much Disney fanart."
Kala And Her Baby
We all know how much Alex loves Disney but we were curious if he'd be willing to try and draw other characters too!
"I’m not that good at planning. But it’s a good idea to Humanize Pixar characters as well, some of my followers already suggested for example 'Cars'“ or '„Monsters Inc.' I will see if I can manage to include some of these."
Alex has done quite a few series on various Disney characters, therefore we wanted to know which one was his favorite.
"Well, I think Disney 'HUMANIMALS' is really popular atm as well as the Disney Harry Potter mashups. I think there is still more creative space to grow these series, like doing for example the characters from Fantastic Beasts afterward."
Alex has had a lot of projects in the past, but we were also curious to know if he was planning on making something new anytime soon.
"I’m still working on the series I started and there’s a lot of more work to complete them. Like the HUMANIMAL Series. I want to draw so many more characters from 'The Lion King,' 'Rapunzel' or more of the classics. But I always think about new creative ideas which are not ready to talk about yet. I hope I will be able to do more of the Movie Mashups soon!"
The Flower From Alice In Wonderland
We all know that Alex's art style is very close to that of the actual Disney but we also wanted to know if Pick was willing to try something new.
"Well if I had all the time of the world I would try lots more different stuff. I really like Anime, stuff like 'Detective Conan' and 'Sailor Moon' but unfortunately, at the moment I do not have the time to get deeper into these subjects."
The creative process is not easy, but there are many enjoyable parts to it.
"I think I love the whole process of the art coming to life. I can’t describe it that well but I think it’s something really special to come up with an idea, put it in a scribble or sketch and then finalize it into a piece of art."
Asking real questions here this time. We were set on finding out Alex's favorite Disney character! Here's what he had to say.
My favorite Disney character? That’s a tough question. I have too many... I guess like Ariel, Ursula, Cruella DeVil and I've got some more favorites"
Lastly, we wanted Alex to evaluate his work and tell us in all honestly what is his favorite series or work in particular that he has done so far.
"It's hard to choose some favorite series or art piece from my own stuff, because like every artist I guess I struggle with my own art from time to time. But I love what I’m doing and I love that I have the creativity and capability to bring my art to life."
