Artist Brilliantly Imagines What Disney Villains Would Look Like in Real Life
Ursula from The Little Mermaid
Thanks to Finnish artist Jirka Väätäinen, we can now confirm that Disney’s cartoon villains would look just as scary in real life. In honor of Halloween, the illustrator decided to expand his portfolio of iconic princesses and princes by adding the wickedly witchy villains from classic Disney films like Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and The Little Mermaid.
Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty
There’s the Evil Queen, who looks as though she’s just had a run-in with her Magic Mirror; Maleficent and Hades, who have perfected their evil smirk; as well as Ursula, Gaston, and Captain Hook flaunting an ominously toothy grin. Aside from their sinister expressions, Väätäinen perfectly captured each of their wicked personalities through his use of deep, rich colors and spooky shadowing.
Hades from Hercules
These nefarious illustrations were actually commissioned by Disney for their Oh My Disney blog, so that readers could get in the Halloween spirit with the villains they love to hate.
