50 Times Talented Artists Amazed Us By Recreating Non-Human Cartoon Characters As Humans


Cartoons lend a certain amount of freedom.

Even though Disney has been giving every cartoon movie a live-action treatment in recent years, you can’t do some animated films justice. I’m only trying to emphasize that some things can’t be made better than CGI before folks who genuinely appreciate the new iterations come after me. When it comes to live-action and animation films, the color palette is always vastly different. Consider The Lion King: while the CGI in the new film is extremely stunning, it also loses what many would call the film’s ‘heart.’

As a result, experienced artists designing these cartoon characters in their own style while keeping the original ‘heart of the character’ in mind is always fascinating. Today, we take this approach a step further by gathering these artists’ reimaginings of non-human characters as people. While you may not like all of these musicians, you cannot deny that they are all highly talented.
