“I hate to see how many people, even in the fandom, inaccurately refer to Terk (from Tarzan) as a “he”. Nope, Terk cracked jokes, made music, made amazing discoveries, stood up for her friends, and engaged in all around badassery, all while being a girl.”
5 minute sketches of Nidalee as Jane from Tarzan. Jane was always one of my favortie characters from Disney. So proper and what not and I loved the sound of her voice. However total opposite of who Nidalee is, I can’t imagine Nidalee afraid of swinging from a vine or in a dress kinda funny.
Vancouver-based illustrator Rafael Mayani put himself up to a mighty challenge. In chronological order, he would watch every single Disney movie, and then he would create an original illustration based on each. Since its first movie, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which was released in 1937, to 2014’s hit Big Hero 6, Disney has released a total of 54 feature films. For this personal project, the 26-year-old made sure not to count the movies that went direct to video, like Mulan 2 or Pocahontas 2, he only concentrated on full length feature films.
Rafael’s Disney Challenge began back in April 6, 2013 and was finally completed over a year and a half later, in December 2014. Here are some of my favourite illustrations by Rafael Mayani. Make sure to check them all out on his website or on Behance.
