Freelance illustrator Isabelle Staub was in a creative slump when she decided to repaint her version of Disney Princesses. “I’ve always loved Disney since I was a child, so I decided to paint the princesses in my own art style for fun,” Staub said in an interview with DesignTaxi.
She ended up having even more fun than expected, spending between 8 and 12 hours recreating each princess. She conducts most of the creative process in Corel Painter, and uses Photoshop to add the last finishing touches.
Staub’s incredible artwork has earned her over 40,000 Instagram followers and counting! See for yourself what all of the buzz is about.

"I’m definitely ready to start a new series! Someone requested villains, which I think would be really cool. But I might give the whole Disney theme a rest for a while,” said Staub.
