Shannon Lee is a cartoonist who creates humanized animal and cartoon characters (20 Pics)

Many of us have seen Disney character recreations, but Shannon Lee, an Australian artist, decided to try something new by turning them into humans. And she didn’t stop there; the artist also created humanized versions of animals, which are simply stunning.

Shannon stated in a recent interview with Bored Panda that she has been drawing for as long as she can remember. “Apparently, I saw my mother painting when I was only a year old and wanted to join in,” revealed the artist. “My parents tell me they didn’t have kid-safe paints so they gave me some shaving foam and had me colour in the roses that were growing outside! Haha! They’re wild people.”

Character design, according to Shannon, is her absolute favorite thing to do. “Thinking about who you want a character to be and then translating that into shapes, colors, and stylistic choices, etc.; problem-solving so that another viewer can get a solid read on who that character is,” says the artist.

Despite the fact that she now creates a lot of humanized versions of characters, the artist admitted that she used to dislike drawing humans. Shannon explained, “I didn’t practice them because they weren’t fun to me, so I ended up with repetitive “same face syndrome” designs.” The artist then remembered seeing other artists create reimagined versions of characters she liked and decided to make her own.
