An artist from Kazakhstan named Nora decided to test her drawing skills by making the characters from the TV show Total Drama Island more realistic and human-like. She took the simple and kinda strangely drawn characters from the show and made them look amazing. The artist has a very unique and beautiful art style and does a lot of fanart of popular cartoons, movies, and video games!

Total Drama Island is a cartoon series that started in 2007 in which 20 animated participants competed to win 100,000 dollars. They had to go through all kinds of weird, funny, and very difficult challenges while living together in a not-so-cozy campsite. Every character in the series was based on a stereotype like 'The Sweet Girl,' 'The Geek,' and the 'The Loner.' The show was quite popular and is even currently on Netflix if you want to check it out!

We got an interview from Nora and she told us about what inspired her to create art and if she does this for a living: "I'm inspired by the art other people create. I'm a freelancer, but I like to think it's more of a hobby." Nora creates digital art but sometimes dabbles in more classical ways of creating—like ink drawing.

"I have loved drawing since childhood, but learned to do it well only at the age of 18. At 15, I went to art school and studied there for less than a year," shared Nora when asked when she got into art and if she studied anywhere to get better at what she does.

Nora tells us more about herself: "Well, I love animals and nature in general, and my favorite genre of movies and video games is horror. I generally like everything creepy. I always wished to become an artist when I grew up. This is really very important to me—drawing helped me during a difficult period when I was a teenager. I have other hobbies, but drawing takes up the largest part of my life, after sleeping and eating."

The artist shared why she decided to recreate the characters from Total Drama Island: "As a child, I loved this show very much, and recently I remembered it and rewatched it again. All the characters are very unique and look like real people, so it seemed interesting to me."She also told us which character is her favorite and which one she didn't like as much: "Duncan has always been my favorite, I think he is very cool. And least of all I like Ezekiel, I don't like him so much, I didn't even bother to draw him."

Nora describes her style as simple and complex at the same time. When asked if she has any plans to recreate characters from other shows, she said: "I like a lot of shows, anime, cartoons, and video games (old cartoons from Nickelodeon, games of the Resident Evil series and so on) and would like to draw many characters from there."

She managed to make him really nerdy, and kept his original character. Good job!

Is it weird that I relate to Noah more than any other character?
