Many people have wished at one point or another that they could be turned into a cartoon and that is just what one artist is doing through his playful anime portrait project. Robert DeJesus, an artist based in the United Kingdom, began taking commissions from strangers to turn their photos into anime portraits. With a pencil in hand, he has created an impressive portfolio that any Japanese studio would be proud to browse through for character inspiration.

From people and their pets to typical Facebook profile pictures and more, these anime portraits boast a wide range of subject matter that makes it even more interesting to browse through. Perhaps DeJesus will create an anime portrait for you.
