Growing up my favorite Disney Prince was always Prince Eric from ‘The Little Mermaid.’ Probably because he was (for me) the cutest, with that floppy jet black hair, those big blue eyes, and the fact that he liked Ariel even when she had no voice! Sooooo dreeeaaammmyyyyy!
So when I saw that Cosmo had posted a link to an artist who had brought Eric and a few other Disney Princes to life through his drawings, of course I HAD to see. I literally CANNOT STOP LOOKING AT IT…is that weird? #beensingletoolong
According to what he told Cosmo, artist Jirka Väätäinen ‘had the idea to reimagine Disney characters came “out of nowhere” in 2011, when he wondered how Ursula from The Little Mermaid would look like in real life. Last year, he illustrated Ursula, along with many Disney princesses. ” In these illustrations, he tried to stay true to the characters’ quirks while also making them look more realistic. He took inspiration from real-life photos, blended together elements on Photoshop, and finished them off with digital painting for the finished product.’

Side note, does this Prince Eric not seriously look like actor Matt Bomer?? MY GOODNESS! ❤ ❤
