Twisted Disney Princess Artwork

This twisted Disney Princess art was created by Jeffrey Thomas. Jeffrey is a character designer, concept artist, and story artist residing in Burbank, CA.

This artwork is pretty amazing, mostly because I have an attachment to the characters. What little girl wouldn’t have? I know I spent hours and hours watching a rewatching disney movies. My parents can attest to this. I’m sure they would be perfectly happy if they never saw a disney princess again…

I really love the twisted disney princess concept but these may have ruin my childhood. I think I’m okay with it!

Let me know what you think!

I <3 Photoshop. Seriously, it is a problem. So, when I found all of these grunge tutorials on the Template Monster Blog I was pretty excited. I probably won’t ever use them, but you never know. You can learn a lot from tutorials. Oh, there are 44 tutorials for grunge effects on this page… just to give you a bit more motivation.

Replaceface Series | Steve Payne

Steve Payne created the Replaceface series. He took digital copies of George Dawe’s paintings of russian generals and used photoshop to replace the existing faces with celebrity’s faces. Pretty fun!

Photo Manipulation

I’m feeling some photo manipulation today… This is an art in itself.  These are Photoshop experts expressing themselves.


I have been a member of Deviant Art for a while now. I’ve always like the site because I enjoy looking at other artists’ work and exploring new techniques and ideas. One of the artists I discovered on DA goes by the name of ZARDO. He is a self taught photographer who manipulates photos into something amazingly dark and edgy. Every time he submits a new photo I make a point to look at it and really appreciate it.  He shares the world in a way that is unique to others. It always stuns me how beautiful his work is. I promise that his websites are worth checking out.

BIOGRAPHY (accord to his website):

“Behind Zardo, my real name is Behrouz Riahi. I’m born in 1985. I am Belgian and I live in Bruxelles. I am a Psychologist. I really began photography when I was 19 years old and have pursued it actively for 7 years. Before taking pictures I liked writing some dark poetry. The problem was that illustrating my thoughts only with words soon became too restricted. I wanted to show how I saw the world. It is why I began with photomanipulation before photography. But the problem with photomanipulation is the fact that it is not real. With photos and the technique I use, I found the way to show the world as I see it.

I am a self-taught person as far as photography is concerned. When I see a really good photo I wonder how it was made and how I could make it myself. To take my photos, I like going to the old part of cities and to places with stunning landscapes where there is nobody. Everywhere I go, I take my camera with me. Firstly, for me, the ideal place is deserted. I hate having people on my photos. It is one of the most difficult parts of the job. Secondly, it has to contain some old buildings with a Gothic architectural style. And finally, there should be a tormented sky where clouds are tempestuous. Maybe one day, I will find the perfect conditions. But does perfection really exist?

I have been influenced by a lot of artists in various ways. The movies by Tim Burton and the beauty of his images is one of them. I am also influenced by the great imagination of two Belgian painters: Magritte and Delvaux. The surrealistic look of their paintings always makes me dream.

As a conclusion, I would like to say that photography is a way for me to leave a world and live in another. When I take my photographs, time stops. There is nobody with me. Photography is a method for me to share with others what is inside me. It is a pleasure to take them and then to share them.”
