Artist Gives 11 Disney Princesses Warrior Makeovers And They Look Badass


Disney Princesses Warrior Makeovers

Have you ever played a game like Tekken or Mortal Kombat, and when browsing through the list of potential characters to fight with wondered, “Hmm where is Cinderella? She could really kick some ass.”

No? Hardly surprising really, Disney princesses are known mostly for sweetness and light, needing to be saved or swept off their feet by a charming price. But not anymore! Russian artist Artemii Myasnikov mixes fantasy and futuristic tech to create these awesome versions of our favorite characters, and you’ll never look at them the same way again! Artemii spoke to Apegeo about the way his drawings came about. “One night I was watching the “Disenchantment” series with my wife and we started a discussion on what we like/dislike about the main character,” he told us. “One of the things we both liked is how wasn’t a damsel in distress, unlike most of the princesses in Disney movies.”

“I immediately wanted to draw a Snow White (because to me she’s the most damsel-in-distress-y princess ever) that would be armed, dangerous, and in charge of her own fate. That’s how the sequence started.”

Artemii will set aside the project for the time being to concentrate on the upcoming Inktober, in which artists draw a picture each day for the entire month. He is a full-time artist and works as an art director in a games studio, but sees the art that he regularly uploads to Instagram as a hobby and creative outlet. “I draw girls, strange creatures, and techno stuff, that fully describes my favorite themes,” he told us. “Growing up, I was into Gen 13, all of the Mike Mignola stuff, DC and Marvel comic series (As a child, I was a die-hard fan of X-men series), Mulan, The Transformers, Exosquad, The Animatrics…”

While the comic industry is still fairly niche in Russia, it is growing steadily alongside the artist community in general. We hope you enjoy Artemii’s work as much as we did, Imgur user  came up with the accurate descriptions for the new warriors on the list.
