Reinterpreting Disney princesses seems to be an artist's rite of passage these days. Victoria Evans, an illustrator and color stylist at Mercury Filmworks, has joined the crew with her modern day renditions of all your favorites.

Here's a lineup of what she's created so far. From left to right, you have Cinderella, Tiana, Snow White, Mulan, Aurora, and Belle.

I put together a lineup of all the #disneyprincess redesigns I've done so far! #Disney #characterdesign #disneyfanart #cinderella #tiana #snowwhite #mulan #aurora #belle #art

She has individual drawings, as well:

it’s modern #disneyprincess time again, this time it’s #belle! The comic she’s holding is an homage (I guess that’s what you’d call it?) to one of my favorite comic covers by Brittney Williams #disney #beautyandthebeast #disneybound #illustration

Another one of these, this time #sleepingbeauty . I'm trying to use these more as a character design exercise than just drawing Disney princesses in a modern outfit, which means including a bit of body diversity not present in the original designs. #aurora #disneyprincess #disney #moderndisneyprincesses #princessaurora

By the way, if you're wondering why the princesses aren't smiling in Evans' drawings, a lot of people have inquired about that.

Evans' response: "The princesses are angry, scowling, or disinterested because I didn't feel like they needed to be smiling. I wanted them to look badass. I don't think normal people smile all the time ... My resting face isn't a smile, and so I just kind of put that in there for me. So yeah, that's it!"

Disney princesses aren't the only things Evans draws. Her Instagram feed has some impressive HarleyQuinn illustrations, including this one of Poison Ivy, some Marvel Comics drawings, and commissioned drawings, like this awesome illustration of someone's cat.
