No doubt you have seen an abundance of artists sharing their own renditions of Disney characters. And still, we have managed to find another gem, perhaps even the fairest of them all.


Show Full Text

American artist Heather Theurer creates Disney-inspired paintings that some viewers have likened to a Renaissance style, however, the artist herself says the style is more akin to the Pre-Raphaelites of the late 19th century.

Theurer says that her aim is not to re-create what has already been done by other artists or Disney itself - but rather to transcend the ordinary and go beyond and down the rabbit hole, in search of new meaning.

When creating her pieces, Theurer strived to go past mere physical resemblances of the characters, focusing instead on capturing and conveying their struggles, hope, and pride - attributes that wouldn't be obvious to the naked eye.

All that attention to detail did not go to waste, scroll down below to see for yourself!

Her face is too Zhang Ziyi/ kawaii-girly for me - the disney original was more fearless and tomboyishly-pretty (as the heroïne should be) . Nice colour depth and shadow-work tho **

I like this contrast between her elegant clothes and this cooking pot - excellent reference to the film. Also, these water lilies in the background are beautiful.
