The zodiac signs have come to life! Using Photoshop and another digital paint tool, John Grec Archibald, a self-taught artist from the Philippines, designed these twelve beautiful illustrations of astrological royalty in the style of fashion sketches. If you think his princesses look a little familiar, that's because he
considers Glen Keane, the Walt Disney character animator who illustrated “The Little Mermaid,” “Tangled,” “Aladdin,” and “Tarzan,” to be his greatest influence. Here is Archibald's complete collection via Instagram, including his own descriptions of the zodiac princesses' styles and gowns. See if you can find the Queen Elsa and Princess Anastasia lookalikes!
