Historically Accurate Drawings Of Disney Characters That Will Immediately Blow Your Mind

If you know about character design, you surely understand how hard and troublesome it was for Disney animators to create their iconic characters. It took tons of sketches to turn a few strokes into a charming, glamorous princess or a daring hero that we all know and love. There’s no denying that all of Disney characters have a stunning look and a lovely charisma we can’t help but adore, but sometimes they’re quite romanticized, modernized and not really suit the era they’re supposed to be lived in.

Digital illustrator Nina Santucci (who is also known by her nickname Wickfield on social media) has tried to change that a little with her historically accurate fanart, and the results totally look awesome! The artist called herself a “history geek” and she’s also a big fan of Disney princesses herself.

“From an artistic standpoint, I’m not at all bothered by the animated designs of the characters in Disney and Dreamworks films. They weren’t documentaries after all so in most cases they didn’t need to be accurate, and in animation in particular, it is more important to convey character and style in the designs.  I am not trying to “fix” anything because I don’t think there is anything to fix!  That being said, it can still be fun to learn how your favorite characters might have looked if they had existed in real life,” she shared.

Let’s take a look at Santucci’s captivating works!
