Artists always amaze me with how they can turn an initial idea or familiar character into a truly mind-blowing creation. I have gathered a few of my favorite artists below who have thought outside of the box and made incredible hyper-realistic cartoons of iconic characters. Everything from Disney to the more nostalgic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is here.

Without further ado, it's time to unleash the work.
