Gothic-Icecream's Hyperrealistic Art Works Evolve Iconic Characters

Sleeping Beauty's Aurora, Aladdin's Jasmine, Tangled's Rapunzel and The Little Mermaid's Ariel are all depicted in this hyper-realistic image series by Deviant Art user Gothic-Icecream.

These artworks pay tribute to Disney's iconic animated characters that have been evolved to become more lifelike and mature. Using digital photo manipulation techniques, the UK-based artist creates these stunning depictions of some of our favourite Disney princesses from past years.

Gothic-Icecream's visually striking portraits resemble high resolution photographs at first glance but are revealed to be complex digital art works upon closer inspection. In addition to Disney's iconic characters, the artist also creates pieces that feature superhero and mythical subjects including The Avengers' Black Widow as well as Princess Zelda from the popular gaming franchise.
