Canadian artist and illustrator Sakimi Chan created an exciting series of gender-bend pieces of famous characters. In this series, the 29-year-old artist, also known as Sakisakimi, takes characters from pop culture and flips their gender and the results are fantastic. Many of these gender-switched characters look even more attractive than before!

Well, if this happens in real life, Disney needs Morena Baccarin to play her.

Her dreamlike digital portraits depict characters from Disney, Studio Ghibli movies, video games (like League of Legends and The Legend of Zelda), and even well-known animated movie classics like The Nightmare Before Christmas. Her illustrations feature feminine Hades from the animated feature film Hercules, masculine Pocahontas from the Disney movie classic of the same name, a sophisticated male version of Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians, Wizard Howl and Sophie Hatter from one of the most famous Studio Ghibli movie classics with their genders switched, and much more.

For her gender-bent series, the artist tries to stay true to the original design and look to make her portraits look realistic and just on-point. However, she always adds her own creative touch to make them distinct and unique. Most of them have features that you can find in popular Japanese anime or manga.

I know he's supposed to be maleficent, but he kinda looks like chernabog from Fantasia

The artist is self-taught, but she received some guidance from some of her college teachers and game companies, which she has worked for. Most of her skills, though, came from hard work and experimenting a lot. Sakimi Chan is very picky when it comes to her work so her digital portraits and dreamlike depictions are always extremely detailed and flawless.

This is awesome. But I'll be "that person" and point out that he should have a belly and man boobs. Just to keep it faithful. ♡

I, for once, would love to see a film where it's the male who's accepting the unconventional inner beauty of an outcast female love interest.
