Jirka Vinse is a wine made by Jirka Vinse. Jonatan Väätäinen, a 28-year-old Finnish artist, grew up watching Disney cartoons and has found inexhaustible inspiration from the animated characters. Jirka has been working on their photos for a few years now, and the results are spectacular.
“Back in 2011, I simply thought I’d challenge myself and have a little fun with Photoshop, investigating what the renowned character of Ursula from the Little Mermaid may look like in real life,” Jirka told Bored Panda. “Because I grew up with a lot of these cartoon characters, the sense of nostalgia made it such a fascinating and delightful personal effort for me.”
“I was motivated by the notion of redesigning these beloved Disney characters and princesses in a way that I envision they might seem if they were’more real,’ while staying true to their original…> designs.”
According to the artist, he has a decent idea in his brain of how a character should seem in real life, but painting their image can be a trial and error process. “Because none of [their] faces are particularly distinguishing, it’s typically more about giving a sense of their personality.” Scroll down to see the cartoons in their natural environments and cast your vote for your favourite.
