We tend to romanticize Disney characters. We see them as someone to look up to. But what if becoming just like them was way easier than we think? What if they were just like regular people with regular quirks, regular mannerisms, and regular problems? That’s the question that Indonesian Photoshop artist Andhika Muksin is answering by inserting Disney princes and princesses into real life and imagining what would happen. It’s time to take our rose-colored glasses off.

This is Disney like you’ve never seen before, so scroll on down, and upvote your fave pics, dear Pandas. Let us know which of Muksin’s creations you enjoyed the most and why! And don’t forget to check out the artist’s social media accounts for his latest uploads and his TikTok to see how his artistic process. You can find Bored Panda’s earlier posts about Muksin’s work here, here, and here.

Muksin told Bored Panda that some of his ideas come to him "fully packaged" and as finished concepts that just need to be drawn. However, his other ideas come in bits and pieces that need to be "marinated" before they can be realized. "That's why I keep a log of all my ideas that come to my head. More like a journal or diary but for my art."

When You Need To Stand 2 Meters Apart And Have To Wake A Princess From Sleeping Curse

Andhika Muksin Report

Muksin revealed to Bored Panda that finishing each picture can take a very different amount of time and it depends on a lot of factors. While some pics can be finished in an hour, others take days. "But never more than 3 or 4 days. This usually happens If i didn't like the result, and keep reworking it until I'm satisfied," the artist said.

"I've always wanted to be an artist/illustrator but not specifically a digital artist. I had an acrylic painting phase back then, but now Photoshop is just a preferred tool," he shared. The artist added that over the last 15 years as an artist, he's learned that the journey to finding one's artistic style is as important as letting it all go for the sake of experimentation. He added that we all need to shake things up artistically from time to time.

Flip Ariel's and Bell's. Bell is French and would treat the wine better. Ariel lives under the sea and might use a glass different than us.

Muksin adores Disney, but he doesn’t just reimagine the characters from the animated films into realistic situations. He also photoshops princesses like Ariel, Pocahontas, and others, into celebrity photos.

The artist revealed to Bored Panda in an earlier interview that his love for Disney started in early childhood when he got a VHS tape of Alice in Wonderland as a birthday gift when he was just 5 or 6 years old.

“I was obsessed with it. I would watch it almost every single day after school. Not long after that, the Disney Renaissance era started, the obsession became a bit out of control and cemented my status as a Disney fanboy,” Muksin said and some of us can definitely relate.

I usually don't like Disney Princess re-imaginings, but I feel a strong affinity with this one.

Ever since then, Disney characters stuck with Muksin. Naturally, he wanted to make fan art of the characters. “But instead of ‘remaking’ them in my own aesthetic style, I put a naughty twist on them. Over time, as I kept posting my Disney characters in real life stuff, I noticed that more and more people re-shared them on their Instagram, and I got more and more positive DMs and comments as well. So I guess people liked them.”

But how does Muksin choose which characters to reimagine? According to the artist, he gets new ideas for his projects completely randomly. He also believes that we all tend to relate to Disney so much because we’ve grown up with the characters we see on the screen.

“These characters are constantly revitalized through wide arrays of innovations. From Broadways, Disneyland rides, merchandise, and now Live Action remakes. These things brought them to iconic status. So I guess they blend so well with our everyday life because they are so well known,” the artist explained.
