Here’s What Famous Historical Figures Would Look Like Today

Leonardo Da Vinci

If you’ve ever looked at the bust of Nefertiti or Julius Caesar, you may have wondered what they’d look like in today’s world. Well, the Dallas-based artist and graphic designer Becca Saladin has always been fascinated by historical facts and archaeology.

“Yet, I always felt separated from the figures. I always thought of history more like a movie than a series of real events,” she explained.

So in order to see historical events and the famous people the way they actually happened and the way they actually looked, Becca created her Royalty Now series that instantly went viral. By combining photography, editing and digital drawing, Becca comes up with incredibly modern and realistic versions of people we only see in movies and history books.
