Have you ever wondered what your childhood crushes and idols would look like if they existed in modern times and were all grown up? A self-taught digital artist from Spain, who goes by Tati MoonS on social media, puts her own realistic spin on some of our favorite cartoon characters in her amazing digital paintings that portray them as badass young adults.

We have previously featured Tati's versions of cartoon characters in real life from such series as The Powerpuff Girls, Frozen, Monsters Inc., and Disney classics, to name a few, and now she's back with more exciting drawing ideas.

Which character designs did you like the most? Let us know in the comments!

The Ohana is not there as her name, it's there as part of the background. Look below Ohana where it says what looks to be 'means family'. It is decorative, not a name.

In her fanart series, Tati has covered popular cartoons such as Lilo & Stitch, Hotel Transylvania, Adventure Time, and Monster High and our inner child could not be more excited. Tati explores feminine grace and beauty of the famous characters through various subjects that inspire her: thus, she has created a series of amazing art projects representing pop culture, astrology (Western Zodiac series and Chinese Zodiac series), and astronomy. Most of her cartoon drawings portray powerful, sensual, mysterious, and diverse women drawn in her distinctive style.

Tati says that she uses references in her artwork and that helps her to improve accuracy and master anatomy. At first, she tried to make her drawings as similar to the originals as possible by creating side-by-side paintings—a technique she recommends to anyone struggling with correct proportions. The artist doesn't practice this method now: "I feel like that took a lot of freedom away from me, so now I don’t usually do that anymore. I just get the pose, lighting, shadows, or whatever I’m looking for from multiple references."
