Disney has been a big part of many people's lives. Children and adults enjoy their cartoons, movies, and series. They managed to create a magical world where almost everyone can find someone to relate to, a place they love, or a story that captures their hearts.
Samuel MB, artist, actor, and primary school teacher, mixes fantasy and reality by placing popular Disney characters in his photos. In the pictures, he hangs out with his favorite characters like Simba, Ariel, Hercules, and many more. He uses Photoshop to create these images and they can be pretty funny.
"When I was a kid, I was a fan of the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit? I liked the combination of animation and live-action. Years later, I learned to use Photoshop, and now I like to create photos by combining cartoons with real life," the artist told Bored Panda.
The artist shared that he also gets inspired to create these combined photos after watching a Disney movie: "Inspiration comes to me watching Disney movies. When I know what photo I want to create, I just have to use Photoshop and create magic."
"My father bought Photoshop when I was a teenager. He was always editing photos, and I liked what he did. So one day I decided to do the same," Samuel told Bored Panda when asked how he decided to learn Photoshop.
Samuel also shared that it takes him about an hour to create a simple image, but more difficult ones can take up to five hours to make.
The artist shared what his favorite Disney movie is and what character does he likes the most: "It is difficult to answer. If I have to choose one, I choose The Little Mermaid and Ariel."
Samuel shared that he would love to become an actor and film director. He would like to create a short movie soon. You can check out some of his work on his YouTube channel by clicking here.
He said that the main idea behind his creative projects is fun: "I like to create these photos because I have fun, and other people have fun too."
"Many people love my photos. They tell me that my photos remind them of their childhood. They would like to meet Disney characters in real life," shared Samuel when asked what are peoples reactions to his work and edits.
"I have loved Disney since I was a kid. Their stories, their characters, their songs. Those films have been part of my childhood. For that reason, creating these Disney photos is now so much fun."
