Brilliant artist 'Disneyfies' people's pets into Disney characters
via Pet Disneyfication / Instagram

There is a distinct style of animation in Disney films that has remained somewhat consistent since Walt Disney first created Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in 1927.

Human characters have slim necks, turned-up noses and large eyes with big pupils. Female characters have even larger eyes with exaggerated eyelashes.

Disney's animals often resemble the movement of the creatures in nature with anthropomorphic features to give them human-like qualities. Its animated animals have mouths like people (because they talk) and ears set far back on the head.


The transformation of the traditional human and animal forms into Disney's signature look is often referred to as "Disneyfication."

Dutch illustrator Isa Bredt wanted to learn how to Disneyfi pictures of animals so she began asking for submissions of people's pets on Reddit. "There was a subreddit where you could offer free art to people. I wanted to practice the Disney style, so I offered free drawings for people who would send me pictures of their pets," she told Bored Panda.

But soon, she got so good at transforming people's pets into Disney-esque characters, she was able to turn pro by accepting money on Patreon.

"I did this a few times and people really enjoyed it, though I wasn't very good yet," she explained. "Then, last summer, I decided to take on commissions as a summer job because I didn't want to work in the food service industry again, and it went well enough that I decided to create an Instagram and do the commissions as a side job."

Bredt draws most of her inspiration from the classic Disney films. Her favorite is The Lion King, but she also adores animal flicks like Lady and the Tramp,101 Dalmatians and The Aristocats.

Here is some of Bredt's best work. You can follow her on Instagram and help fund her efforts on Patreon:

Acts of kindness and compassion are always inspiring. A veterinarian gave a different spin on the phrase "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em".

The poor little pup in this video walked into this shelter with a history of being abused. He was so traumatized that he wasn't eating. The vet treating him wasn't sure what to do, so he decided to book a table for two: a the dog's place. It is not clear whether he got an official invite from the canine in question, but he felt pretty safe about showing up unannounced. He walked into the cage and sat down next to the dog. With his back up against the corner of his new (and hopefully temporary) domain, the rescue stared apprehensively at his human guest. The vet presented a dog dish with food and put it in front of the dog. The frightened pup just looked at the dish and made no attempt to eat. Then he broke out another dog dish identical to the one he just gave to his four-legged patient and started eating out of that bowl. And then came the turning point.

In two months, Donald Trump will be out of the White House but, at the last minute, it looks like we may have found the best, if not the most unusual, impression of him out there.

Stand-up comedian James Austin Johnson has been impersonating the president since he was elected, but it wasn't until recently he figured out the right approach. Trump is such an over-the-top character in real life that he's tough to spoof.

Do you know that guy who has never had an issue with his TV/internet provider? Neither do I. If you claim you have never had issues with your bill going up without warning, then you are either lying or you own the cable company. Jake Lawson apparently does not own a cable company, and was prepared to communicate his frustrations regarding his bill in a most creative way.

First off, Jake understands what everyone should realize. The customer service representative doesn't own the cable company either, so yelling at someone who is just trying to make a living like all of us is not the answer. Their job is hard enough as it is so give them a break. Jake gave them more than a break. He gave them a song.
