If you’ve ever wondered what Disney’s princes might have looked like in real life, Jirka Väätäinen, a Finnish artist and designer in Melbourne, has answered that question definitively with his series of real-life Disney prince illustrations. They don’t call him ‘prince charming’ for nothing!

Anyone who had a childhood crush (or still has a crush) on these Disney characters will definitely love them, but even if you don’t, it’s interesting to see these characters in real life. Väätäinen stayed true to their original tone while making sure they seem totally lifelike and believable.

If you like Väätäinen’s interpretation of these famous characters, be sure to visit his website, where he’s given the same treatment to Disney’s iconic princesses and female cartoon characters as well!
