Jirka Väätäinen, the talented digital artist and graphic designer behind the ‘Real Life Disney Princesses‘, has also released a set of outstandingly realistic Disney Prince portraits and they are scarily attractive.
Väätäinen’s hyper-realistic creations are not only allowing Disney fan girls to see what the legendary Prince Charming might look like in real life, but also Aladdin, Hercules, Tarzan and John Smith, amongst other popular male Disney characters.
Just like in their cartoon versions, their are rippling muscles, brooding expressions and chiselled jawlines aplenty. The artist claims he also attempted to preserve each prince’s individual quirks, while still trying to make their profile as realistic as possible. As you can clearly see he’s done a superb job, and this latest series has already been shared more than 30,000 times on Facebook.
Take a look at his amazing art below, as well as the handsome hunks in their original, animated form for comparison. And if you’re thinking to yourself “it’s way too weird to have the hots for a cartoon”, well, these pictures may just change your mind…
Let’s start with Prince Charming, from 1950’s ‘Cinderella’
We’d definitely stay out past midnight with him!
Then there’s Prince Philip, from 1959’s ‘Sleeping Beauty’
A face like that is worth losing sleep over.
Prince Eric from the 1989 classic ‘The Little Mermaid’
He’ll render you totally speechless!
Belle loved Prince Adam as both a monster and a man in ‘Beauty and The Beast’ (1991)
Now you can love him too.
Who could forget Charming “street rat” Aladdin, from the 1992 movie of the same name
Not too shabby…
Explorer John Smith from 1995’s ‘Pochahontas’ immediately grabbed our animated heroine’s attention
Now he’s grabbing ours with his Alexander Skarsgard-esque good looks.
Hercules was the hero of his own movie and our hearts
Looking good Herc.
And finally, who could forget Tarzan? (1999)
Who was your favourite realistic Disney man?
