These Disney guys made us swoon
Hellooooo, Prince Eric.
(SPOT.ph) They're the animated characters that made our younger selves swoon whenever we watched Disney films. No matter how unrealistic the story, there will always be moments when you wish they actually existed. Well, now they do...sort of.
Jirka Väätäinen, an artist from Helsinki in Finland, has reimagined male Disney characters as real guys and the results are swoon-worthy. Through "photo compositing and digital painting," Väätäinen rendered different characters into beautiful, realistic versions.
There's Prince Phillip, whom we would gladly wake up for:
John Smith kind of looks like Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones:
We would love to be part of this Aladdin's world:
But our personal favorite is Prince Eric because...well, just look at him.
This isn't the first time Väätäinen has reimagined Disney characters in real life. He previously created a female version of his project, which includes Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Megara from Hercules, Jane from Tarzan, and more.
