If you’ve never appreciated the fact that Disney often designs their film villains to be below-average looking males, then you’ll certainly be grateful for these Mae Uy illustrations. Gone are the familiar renditions of Jafar, Captain Hook, Frollo, Gaston, Hades and more, replaced instead with menacing ladies wearing modified versions of each respective evildoer’s attire. Uy actually manages to retain many of the original design elements of the antagonists, with Frollo in particular almost having his original face, but her versions are easily more sexy.

For those unfamiliar with Mae Uy, she’s a Vancouver-based illustrator specializing in cartoonish digital painting. The images in this gallery are part of an on-going series entitled ‘Disney Villainettes,’ and you can expect her to churn out more Disney-related content in the future.
