Artist Turns Selfies Into 3D Cartoon-Style Pictures

Selfies in cartoon style images

Disney’s Pixar characters are, well, lovable. We can’t think of one character drawing that’s “off”, out of sync with its story. Disney artists know how to do their job but they’re not the only talented fellows out there. 3D artist Lance Phan is capable of turning a simple selfie into an amazing cartoon character #todaymagic

Lance Phan can enhance your features digitally until you look like a Pixar character. Experiments began a while ago; Lance first asked people for their permission to turn profile pictures or selfies in 3D images. News spread like wildfire and now Phan’s booked until next year.


Glimpses of Phan’s design process can be seen on Facebook  and some of the most successful results are showcased on Instagram.  “The hair is always the hardest part so I always try to find a new technique that makes things easier“, the artist explains. One piece of art can take several hours, but that doesn’t stop people from sending Lance cartoon requests. Phan has transformed selfies from girls, guys, couples with and without glasses, with long, short and medium hair.



If you want to contact the artist for a cartoonization, make sure you’re the main attraction in the picture provided: “Complicated pictures like in a shop full of items or in the street full of buildings and people will take massive time so I’ll have to pass such requests.
