Fantastically Realistic Illustrations of Disney Princesses

Finnish graphic design student Jirka Väätäinen has been creating a collection of illustrations that gives us a vision of what Disney princesses would look like in real life. These have to be the best I’ve seen over the years, as they look lifelike while staying true to their animated selves (e.g., Belle’s cocked eyebrow).
