20 Celebrities Reimagined As Animated Characters By Illustrator Helen Morgun

Helen Morgun is a Spanish illustrator who creates impressive Disney fan art. Recently, the artist decided to illustrate some of our favorite celebrities as animated characters, and the results turned out absolutely stunning.

In a recent interview with Bored Panda, the artist said that she’s inspired by people. “Interesting stories, films, songs that you want to listen to over and over again. I have been drawing since childhood. I have an art education and I think I always knew that I wanted to devote my life to drawing,”said Helen.

The first celebrity that Helen illustrated in the series was Rachel McAdams as Cinderella. “I always thought she was very suitable for this role. And then I decided not to stop and come up with which other celebrity is suitable for the role of a princess or an insidious villain,” revealed the artist.

Nowadays she mostly lets her fans decided who to illustrate. “I like to choose with my followers a candidate for a new character. And in creating a portrait, I like to come up with interesting details and references to the character,” said Helen. She says that she always chooses two candidates for each character and then lets her subscribers choose their favorite. “Very rarely I choose at my own discretion, it happens when I know for sure that the type match is 100%,” revealed the artist.

The Same Artist That Created The ‘Good Boy’ And ‘Black Cat’ Comics Is Back With A New Comic About A Parrot

Jenny Jinya is a freelance illustrator and animal rights activist from Germany whose name you should probably recognize if you frequent our website. The artist regularly creates heartbreaking comics that draw attention to various animal rights issues and this time she’s back with a comic about a pet parrot.

In her latest comic, Jenny tries to explain why budgies, and parrots in general, are very misunderstood pets – and how these misunderstandings often lead to their abandonment. As always, the artist provides some useful information and facts in the last panel, further explaining why you should do some serious research before choosing a parrot as a pet. See Jenny’s latest comic in the gallery below, and if you want to see more of her work, check out our previous posts herehere, and here.

Illustrator and animal rights activist Jenny Jinya recently created a heartbreaking comic about a budgie

The artist went on to explain why parrots are some of the most misunderstood pets

Jenny explained that unlike cats and dogs, parrots are not domesticated animals, therefore they require lots of freedom and can be pretty loud and disruptive as that’s the same way they act in the wild. Some inexperienced owners might find this behavior hard or even impossible to tolerate, leading to the pets being placed in closets, garages, or other environments where they wouldn’t be heard. According to the artist, a majority of captive parrots eventually end up in at least five homes and often die prematurely. “Do your research before you decide to get an exotic pet!” concluded Jenny – and the same thing goes for any other pet you’re planning to get.

Jenny tried to make people understand why parrots weren’t the best pets for kids

Artist Reimagines 22 Famous Paintings With Disney Characters

Some people think that learning about art history is only for artists, art critics, and those working in the art sphere. However, one artist thinks that it’s important for everyone to learn about it. To prove that, Spanish graphic designer and illustrator Carlos Gromo created a series of Disney characters inspired by famous paintings to help people to memorize these classics better.

The artist, who is also known as carlosgromodraw to his 31k Instagram followers, started this project in 2019 when he finished his Fine Arts studies. He realized that many people don’t know much about art history or famous paintings. So he started this ongoing project with an aim to educate people in an entertaining way. The good news is that the project became a huge success and hopefully, people have learned something about classical art.#3

His series features such animated movie classics as 101 Dalmatians, Beauty and the Beast, Hercules, and Sleeping Beauty. The characters from these movies are based on the style and color palette of each painting. For instance, Belle and Beast are depicted as the famous painting “The Kiss” by Gustav Klimt. Just like in the painting, they look like a couple embracing each other in beautifully decorated robes. Meanwhile, Roger and Anita Radcliffe from 101 Dalmatians are shown as a farmer and his daughter in the famous 1930 painting “American Gothic” by Grant Wood.#5

“This project started because when I finished my Fine Arts career at university, as an artist, I realized that many people didn’t know many of the art paintings and I thought that I could present them in a more original way. I have always liked to draw Disney, so I thought of the idea of starting this project by drawing those characters from the movies in those pictures from art history. In this way, I managed to give visibility to many works of art and artists from different periods,” says the artist to Bored Panda.#7

Illustrator Shows How Humans Would Look If We Had Various Animals’ Bone Structures (14 Pics)

Would you believe us if we told you that even though we look nothing like animals, our anatomy is actually quite similar? To highlight these similarities, Japanese artist Satoshi Kawasaki created a series of illustrations comparing human and animal anatomy – and they tend to get quite… bizarre.

Have you ever thought how a human would look with the bone structure of a turtle? How about a flamingo? To be honest, the answer is probably “No”. That, however, did not stop Satoshi from creating the hilariously weird illustrations. Check them out in the gallery below!

The turtle’s skeleton is quite unique, and the shell is mostly made of a “thorax” such as a rib, with a scapula and pelvis in it. Based on this turtle skeleton, what would happen if you tried it on yourself? I drew a little picture.

#2

Image source: Satoshi Kawasaki

Flamingos often stand on one leg and sleep with one leg standing. The flamingo’s body shape is also extreme, so I drew an illustration of a flamingo skeleton if a human poses while standing on one leg.

#3

The horse has ‘lost’ all its fingers except for the middle one due to evolution.

#4

Image source: Satoshi Kawasaki

There were many requests for a penguin skeleton applied to a human body.

#5

Image source: Satoshi Kawasaki

Often, the foot of animals is mistaken for an ankle as a knee, so I tried to draw what would happen if I made the human foot the bone base of another animal’s foot.

#6

Image source: Satoshi Kawasaki

There are various environments on Earth such as grasslands, forests, mountains, sea, sky, and underground. The animals have adapted and evolved to their various environments, but the body parts that shows the most change in adaptation are the “front legs” (arms). So I tried to draw what happens if the human arm is reproduced with the skeleton of various animal forelimbs.

#7

Image source: Satoshi Kawasaki

The illustration of “Reproducing the bat wings with human arms” that I made a long time ago was wrong. What was wrong was that the metacarpal bone (the bone on the back of the hand) was part of the finger. I also drew “Illustration of Bird Wings with Human Arms.”

#8

Rabbits are always stooped, so it seems to put a lot of burden on your back when you stretch it.

#9

Image source: Satoshi Kawasaki

Half-human half-bird monsters called “harpies” have appeared in Greek mythology, but I tried to draw this harpy with a skeleton base of a bird (no tailbone, human head) and a human body.

#10

Image source: Satoshi Kawasaki

Elephants are so big, but they stand on their tip-toes, and camels stand more like ballerinas. However, they get support from a fleshy cushion pad on the sole.

#11

Image source: Satoshi Kawasaki

If people had chests like pigeons.

#12

Image source: Satoshi Kawasaki

When shellfish (bivalve) are heated, the shells open. The shell is closed by a muscle called a scallop (closed muscle), and when the muscle is loosened, the shell opens. When heated, the protein in the muscles changes and the adhesion between the shell and scallops peels off, so the shell appears to open vigorously.

#13

Image source: Satoshi Kawasaki

I compared the difference between bats and pterosaur wings in human hands.

#14

There are two ways to transmit sound to the ear. Sound transmitted by air vibration is “air conduction sound.” Sound transmitted by bone vibration is “bone conduction sound” Dolphins in the water listen to sound through bone conduction sound. Beethoven suffered from deafness as a musician, but he overcome it with this bone conduction.
