Disney and their ever-expanding lineup of charismatic characters continue to capture the hearts of children and adults alike. The biggest hit of the year is Frozen with its double princess lineup, but even though Elsa and Anna are tremendously popular, when we think of Disney, the first image that comes to mind is still that of a certain talking mouse and his chirpy giggle.
That’s right, Mickey Mouse! And his gang of talking animal friends, of course. Although Mickey and friends wear clothes and talk and sing and dance, they are still not quite as human as they sometimes seem. Have you ever imagined what Mickey and Donald would look like as humans? Personally, I haven’t; not until now. Check out these fabulous “humanized” Disney characters drawn by Japanese illustrator Chaico!
We’ve previously seen some illustrations of Spongebob and gang in human forms, which received both positive and negative responses from our readers. Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Would humanized Disney characters tickle your fancy? Let’s take a look!
▼ Donald & Daisy
▼ Goofy & Max
▼ The Aristocats
▼ Abu from Aladdin
▼ Flounder & Ariel from The Little Mermaid
▼ The Three Caballeros
▼ Chip ‘n’ Dale
▼ Lady and the Tramp
▼ The Lion King
Now that I’ve seen these charming illustrations of the Disney gang in their humanized forms, I can’t stop wondering about the little details that could be added to their characters. What jobs could they have? Where do they go shopping for clothes? What perfume does Minnie wear? Does Daisy do her own hair? It almost feels like I’ve just opened the door to the Narnia of Disney. (Wait, I’m not sure if that makes any sense…)
Anyway! We hope you’ve enjoyed these lovely drawings as much as we have. Did any of the humanized characters catch your eye? If you have noticed from the dates on the sketches, Chaico has been creating these awesome illustrations since 2012, and she is still producing new pieces in her free time. We couldn’t post her entire archive here, so do hop over to her DeviantArt, Pixiv or Tumblr pages to see more of Chaico’s wonderful work!
