Artist Reimagines Disney Characters As Modern-Day Women And Men, People Love It

Even though some of our favorite Disney characters, like Snow White, for example, are over 80 years old, they don’t look a day older than when they were first created. However, French Guiana-based artist Véronique Pierre decided to bring some of them to the 21st century by giving them new age makeovers. She regularly posts videos of the makeovers on her TikTok and has already gathered a following of over 633K fans on the platform!

In a recent interview, the artist explained why the princesses in her illustrations aren’t always as merry as we remember them. The artist said that while most of us are used to seeing them as happy, in the real life everything isn’t as beautiful and easy. “We all have ups and downs,” added Véronique.

Snow White (Snow White)

Jasmine (Aladin)

Véronique says that she was inspired to start creating the makeovers after seeing other artists creating similar images on TikTok. “I thought it was really beautiful, and I was wondering how the drawings would look with my own style,” said the artist. “So I decided to draw all the princesses.”

Morgana (Little Mermaid)

Tiana (Princess and the Frog)

Wendy (Peter Pan)

The artist said that when she was drawing Ariel, she thought to herself “If she was here with us, if she was real, what would she be like? Would it be like in the movie where everything is nice and clean?” Véronique realized that she probably wouldn’t be as happy as she was when she was created and decided to try out a more thought-provoking approach.

Giselle (Enchanted)

Madam Mim (The Sword in the Stone)

Elsa (Frozen)

The artist also says that the villains are often underrated as they’re just as charming and charismatic as the main characters and adds that Cruella de Vil from One Hundred and One Dalmatians was her most favorite illustration to draw.

One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?

This time, she invites us to view our favorite childhood characters from a different perspective and focus on their mental health.

When asked how she was inspired to create this series of Disney princesses going to the psychotherapist’s office, the artist says that at first, you have to know the psychotherapist herself. “Well, first you have to know about the character. Dr. Pink Giraffe is one of my characters known for being very sarcastic with their patients. It first came to me when I needed to see things with a cold mind. You know, every time I felt like I was drowning in a glass of water, I remembered this character. I wanted to make it a pink giraffe to create a contradiction between her looks and her rational mind,” says Guadarrama to Bored Panda. “I am a huge animation fan, especially Disney-Pixar animation. One day, my boyfriend (who knows my work almost better than anyone) asked me: “Wouldn’t it be funnier if Dr. Giraffe would take princesses as patients?” and that was an instant connection, I already knew what the giraffe would say to every single one of them.”#5

The artist says that for this series, she had to look at Disney princesses from a different perspective. After all, most of them were just teenagers when they had to go through their tough experiences. “Having Dr. Pink Giraffe talking to my favorite Disney characters was a very interesting exercise to me because I’m a Disney fan and I grew up very inspired by these movies but now I see it with different eyes, you know? It is like, I love Ariel, but she is a 16-year-old that probably needs some advice before taking risk decisions. I don’t want to harm anyone’s childhood nostalgia, but I have been drawing this character (Dr. Giraffe) for so long that when I started to draw it with the Disney princesses, it’s like the dialogue came straight to my head.”#7

After all, who would have thought that after living with the seven dwarfs, Snow White might have trust issues? Or that Elsa isn’t actually ready to let it go? Or that Cinderella was too quick to fall in love and trust Prince Kit Charming? By visiting Dr. Pink Giraffe’s office, these princesses realize that it’s normal to feel what they feel for someone who has gone through their hardships. “I love the fact that something that only lives in your mind becomes a piece that can communicate a message to others. I love the way comics make you bond words and images in a way that they are not repeating themselves but telling different parts of stories. I love storytelling, and I love how people connect with it.”#9

The artist says that her cartoonist career started 6 years ago when she was trying to avoid writing her thesis. “I started to self publish on a Facebook page about 6 years ago as an almost therapeutic way to express myself. As a young adult who was trying to avoid finishing her thesis, I published every day about my opinions and my own way of seeing things like emotions, fears and insecurities. Surprisingly, people connected with the drawings and the character and I was able to develop more stories and cartoons that I’d publish in a newsletter back in my home country. That’s when I realized I had become a cartoonist.” She does all the creative work herself. Therefore, one cartoon can take her up to 60 minutes to draw and another half hour to sketch and write. “One simple cartoon can take me 30-60 minutes to ink and color with Procreate, before that I tend to sketch and write for another half hour.” #10

“I am a Venezuelan artist, I studied graphic design but I am a full-time illustrator now. I came to Chile for a fresh start. I traveled to some countries in Latin America (Argentina, Lima, and Mexico) to impart a workshop about emotional intelligence through the creation of comics. It was an amazing experience. I connected with so many people that already followed my work and that made me aware of the role of art and images when it comes to expressing ourselves in a therapeutic way, I do believe practicing art can heal.” This January, Guadarrama published her first book with a compilation of all her cartoons drawn from 2014 to 2019. What an amazing start for this young artist!

Artist Gives Disney Princesses A New Look (9 Transformations)

For those of you Pandas out there who love Disney, drawing, and design, you’re bound to enjoy We Call It Disney’s art. Artist Marta Sánchez García, who runs the Instagram page, redesigned and upgraded the dresses that Disney princesses wear and the results are stunning.

Marta is especially proud of Pocahontas’ dress because that’s the one that she actually fully designed herself. “She is my favorite princess and she doesn’t get enough credit,” she told Bored Panda.

“The dresses that artists, including Disney artists, design for her are very boring and unappealing, in my opinion, so I was dying to do her justice and something modern that would represent her.” Scroll down for the rest of our chat with Marta, check out her drawings, and let us know which dresses you liked the most, dear Readers!

“People usually associate beige and blue with Pocahontas because those are the only colors she wears in the movie. This is a mistake that Disney designers make when It comes to her because Pocahontas represents all the colors in nature, even her song talks about all the colors of the wind!” the artist said.

“That’s why I make sure to represent all those colors in her dress, keeping the beige as the main one as a nod to the original. It was also very flowy, nothing corseted like the others. Pocahontas is the drawing that has the most likes, I am so happy people appreciate it.”

According to the artist, it takes her roughly 6 to 7 hours, split over 2 days, to complete each drawing. Of course, that depends on whether or not she’s motivated, but Marta told us that she usually is (otherwise she doesn’t finish the drawings).

“The redesigns for the dresses are from the Disney Midnight Masquerade collection. The dolls are absolutely stunning and I just had to draw those dresses into the animated princesses using the style of each one of their movies,” the artist told Bored Panda.

While Marta considers herself to be an artist, she hasn’t chosen that path in life. “I am currently studying journalism and I constantly think about whether I made the right choice,” she shared some of her worries.

“I love art and I couldn’t live without it in my life, but I guess it is more of a hobby than a job. Disney and art are a perfect combination of two worlds I love and this account gives me the perfect place to express it.”

Here’s what people thought of the artist’s drawings. Some loved them while others weren’t so sure if they liked them
