Have you ever wondered what you’d look like as a Pixar character? Well, 3D artist Lance Phan is now giving ordinary people the chance to see themselves “Pixar-fied.” Using a single photo of the person (or the couple), he applies digital textures and three-dimensional modeling to transform them into stylized portrait art. The resulting images fit perfectly with the style of Pixar, and so it’s no stretch to imagine Phan’s handiwork as characters in a future flick by the esteemed animation studio.
Phan’s ability to make the leap from photograph to 3D art is impressive, and a lot of what makes these pieces so great is in the details. Most notably, his characters have the same inner glow that appears in big-screen Pixar movies. Their delicate, glistening strands of hair and the twinkles in their eyes add a similarly life-like touch that makes the animation studio shine above all the rest.
Phan works on commission and has periods of time in which you can request a portrait. As of now, he’s fully booked, but he promises to figure out an opening date for when he can accept proposals again. In the meantime, check out his guidelines and pricing here.
