Many of us have seen Disney character recreations, but Shannon Lee, an Australian artist, decided to attempt something new by turning them into humans. And she didn’t stop there; the artist also made humanised representations of animals, which are simply wonderful.

Shannon stated in a recent interview with Bored Panda that she has been drawing for as long as she can remember. “Apparently, when I was a year old, I saw my mother painting and wanted to join in,” the artist explained. “My parents told me they didn’t have any kid-safe paints, so they gave me shaving foam and told me to colour in the roses growing outside!” Haha! They’re a bunch of crazies.”

Character design, according to Shannon, is her absolute favourite thing to do. “Thinking about who you want a character to be and then translating that into shapes, colours, and aesthetic choices, etc.; problem-solving so that another viewer can get a firm feel on who that character is,” adds the artist.

Despite the fact that she now makes many humanised versions of characters, the artist admitted that she used to dislike sketching humans. Shannon explained, “I didn’t practise them because they weren’t pleasant for me, and as a result, I ended up with repetitious “same face syndrome” drawings.” The artist then started making her own reinvented versions of characters she liked after watching others do so.
