Sakimichan is a digital artist who makes stunning paintings of Disney characters, drawn in a completely different way. These leading characters are redrawn with a new gender – and even more attractive than before!
Let’s take a look at 12 of Sakimichan’s gender-switched Disney heroes and heroines. On her website, she shares some insights into how these beautiful paintings are made. She even paints gender-bent Ghibli characters, too!
1) Ariel (The Little Mermaid)
2) Beauty & Beast (Beauty & The Beast)
4) Elsa (Frozen)
5) Cruella De Vil (101 Dalmatians)
Sakimichan made this male Cruella in response to a fan request. Who would you like her to gender-switch next?
6) Esmerelda (Hunchback of Notre Dame)
7) Jack & Sally (The Nightmare Before Christmas)
8) Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty)
