Share on Facebook

One of the best things about the advent of the internet is the wealth of amazing talent that’s so much easier to discover through the power of social media. Instagram, in particular, is a fantastic resource for finding cute and innovative art. But one account that’s seriously impressed the internet this week perfectly combines a genius idea with killer execution.

An amazingly talented artist based in Ukraine has dedicated her stunning Instagram page to one very specific niche. Helen Morgun uses her incredible skills to draw her favorite celebrities – but not as you’ve ever seen them before. She transforms the stars of today in a wonderfully unique way, merging them with an unlikely inspiration: Disney Princesses.

Her creations have involved Game of Thrones stars, and a huge range of models, singers and actresses. Curious as to which princess your favorite star would be? Read on.

Creating art is really a true talent.

It’s something that not many people have the skill set for, which makes it all the more impressive when someone does.

For many, it’s therapeutic.

The process can be more important than the end result and it’s a great hobby to have. But for a select few, it’s even more than a hobby.

Some have an almost otherworldly ability.

The enviable talent of being able to draw well is rare – and those who have it can often gain a following.

Because seeing really good art can elicit an emotional reaction.

Being able to view exactly what was previously inside someone’s mind is actually pretty magical, if you think about it.

It can blow people away.

Sometimes, when you see something that someone else has created, the only thought available to you is … “wow.”

There’s another common reaction, too.

The natural talent, dedication, and hard work of an artist tends to feel like something that deserves praise.

Beautiful things can make us feel something.

It’s strange that a visual object can have emotional ramifications – but that’s part of the majesty of being alive.

And in recent years, discovering art has never been easier.

Thanks to the internet, people are much more able to share their talent and creations with the world, which is a very good thing.

This can lead to something else.

Many newer artists have started their careers on social media, gaining a loyal following of dedicated fans along the way.

One such artist is illustrator, Helen Morgun.

The talented Ukrainian-based creative had garnered a legion of fans thanks to her stunning creations, which she shares on Instagram and YouTube.

Morgun has a very distinctive style.

Her images tend to be a little ethereal, with an emphasis on portraiture. She also uses color in a super appealing way.

Morgun also has a sense of humor.

She often draws inspiration from popular culture for her creations, including her super cute magazine cover series.

And there’s one place in particular that Morgun finds her inspiration.

The talented artist loves to include features, clothing, and makeup from the Disney princesses.

It’s a very good fit for Morgun.

Her work is well suited to the Disney princess catalogue, as she often includes similar colors and has a similar drawing style.

Her Instagram page is full of these stunning images.

Here’s Scarlett Johansonn re-imagined as Russian orphan and secret princess, Anastasia.

She often asks fans for inspiration.

Here’s Megan Fox drawn as the heroine from Hercules, sassy badass Megara.

Morgun often asks her followers which combination of celebrity and princess they want to see.

And the results are truly stunning. Here’s Amber Heard in an Alice in Wonderland iteration.

Morgun isn’t shy about the process.

She generously shares images of her inspiration photos alongside the finished result to help fans to understand how she got there.

We’ve selected more of our favorites to show you.

Some of these are truly incredible. We think this Mila Kunis as Esmerelda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame is really inspired.

Not all are totally Princess inspired.

This image inspired by Emma Stone is still pretty fantastical though – and, it goes without saying, incredibly beautiful.

Morgun uses many very popular celebrities.

This image of Billie Eilish as Kida Nedakh from Atlantic: The Lost Empire is a truly inspired combination – and there are plenty more to come!

It’s clear that Morgun is a Game of Thrones fan.

She’s chosen to include actors from the show in lots of her work, including this cute image of Emilia Clark, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, as Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

And that’s not the only Game of Thrones star she’s drawn.

Morgun also opted to create Ariel, from The Little Mermaid, in the image of Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the epic television series.

This is another super cute pic.

Amanda Seyfried, best known for her roles in Mean Girls and Mamma Mia, is expertly blended with Rapunzel. Like this? There are many more where that came from!

Sometimes Morgun opts to use two celebrities.

In this image, inspired by smash hit movie Frozen, Morgun has opted to cast Cara Delevingne as Anna and Margot Robbie as Elsa.

Sometimes, she’ll use a lesser known character as inspiration.

Here, she casts pop superstar Ariana Grande as Vanellope von Schweetz, Ralph’s sidekick and best friend in Wreck-It Ralph.

The internet has really gone wild for one image in particular, though.

This picture of actress Blake Lively recast as Aurora from Sleeping Beauty is simply stunning.

For some fans, there are a few standouts.

People love this image of pop star turned business mogul, Rihanna, as Tiana from The Princess and the Frog, in particular.

And it’s clear that she’s not short of inspiration.

Alongside her Disney princess series, Morgun is working on another set of celebrity images inspired by emotion. Check out model Tyra Banks portraying anger.

And she’s not one to leave out the boys.

It looks as though Morgun is ready to start another new series of male celebrities inspired by the Disney princes. We can’t wait to see what this incredible talent does next!
