It’s no secret that Disney cartoons and their heroes helped shape the lives of many. Some of the most adorable animal characters with big eyes and kind smiles taught us how to be loving, generous, and brave. So no wonder why so many people wish to see their favorite furry friends as colorful animated creatures.
One artist, Isa Bredt, a 23-year-old illustrator from the Netherlands, makes it possible. She is the author behind the famous Instagram account called “Pet Disneyfication”. Since 2014, she transforms pictures of people’s pets into Disneyesque illustrations, and it’s a whole new level of cuteness.
We have collected some of the best drawings of cats, dogs, rabbits, and more from her account. Continue scrolling, upvote your favorites and make sure to check out our previous post about her right here!
When asked about her favorite part of the process, Bredt told us that it’s the start of the drawing: “Looking at all the pictures, finding things that make an animal special, and then making the initial sketch. I love analyzing what features are unique to the pet that I’m drawing.”
Since the last time we spoke, the artist admitted that there haven’t been any specifically significant changes, other than the fact that she has improved a lot. “Especially painting my backgrounds used to be a big struggle, and I mean, it’s still a struggle but the end results are a lot better,” she said.
Her work is truly magical and admired by many: “People are so sweet! Especially if I’ve made a portrait of a pet that has unfortunately passed away, people send me the kindest messages, saying that the drawing brought tears to their eyes. Or that it helped them heal because pictures of their pet made them cry, but the portrait made them smile.”
Isa Bredt leaves us with a few thoughts: “Give your local shelters some love, they can always use some donations, and enjoy the holidays!” And if you think that your pet is Disney-levels of cute and wish to have an adorable pet portrait yourself, don’t be shy and get in touch!
