Realistic Anime Portraits
These Real-Life Renderings by Andrew Golden are Both Cute and Obscure

Photographer Andrew Michael Golden has taken some of the most popular characters from Studio Ghibli films and created renderings of what they would like in real life.

Some of the main characters featured include Totoro from ‘My Neighbor Totoro,’ No-Face from ‘Spirited Away’ and Ponyo from ‘Ponyo’. The photos were mostly created by computer renderings but also include real-life animals that have been manipulated to resemble the lovable characters from the popular films. Also, Golden utilized some stock photos to create characters like Porco Rosso from the film of the same name.

While some are spot-on, others appear sinister with a serious monster-like vibe (Totoro, anyone?).  Anime and photography fans alike are sure to get a kick out of this obscure set and may never look at their favorite characters the same way again.
