Na Young Wu is a character illustration artist for games, and in what she calls her "Korean Western Fairy Tale" series, she uses her talents to reimagine familiar characters. Sometimes she uses the color palettes from Disney films, but in other pieces, she focuses on putting her own spin on the stories. You can see more of her Eastern-Western fairy tale illustrations on Twitter—and if you somehow still haven't enough of Frozen, she has her own take on Elsa on her blog.

DISCUSSION

This deer is in on some joke with the audience. What are you winking at deer!?

Lovely illustrations and like the outfits more then the original. Think Ursula is my favorite design.

Tiger Beast just seems like he has a clueless look on his face. Like if you actually put a tiger in the outfit and it is wondering what the hell is happening.
