Ladies, here are Disney princes drawn as near-perfect humans

Check out these beauties. P.S. doesn't Aladdin look a lot like Jake Gyllenhaal and John Smith like Chris Hemsworth? No? Just an observation.

Attention women, we have landed on a goldmine here. If you thought Disney princes were the epitome of desirable men, things just got even better.

A 25-year-old artist from Melbourne, Australia, Jirka Väätäinen has recreated the handsome characters from major Disney movies like Aladdin, Prince Charming, Beast (Prince Adam), Tarzan... almost everyone in perfect human form. Of course, many do not like this considering how it is setting impossible body-image standards for men.

Check out these beauties. P.S. doesn't Aladdin look a lot like Jake Gyllenhaal and John Smith like Chris Hemsworth? No? Just an observation.

However, this isn't Väätäinen's first time doing something like this. He has also previously recreated Disney princesses as human females. Here:
