Some of these may actually be better than the real thing.

Tim Burton is no stranger to preeminent gothic and quirky characters in the movie world. For over three decades, the American film director and animator has had millions of fans hooked on his movies, thanks to his signature style.

Being an ardent fan of Burton, Los Angeles-based illustrator, Andrew Tarusov, re-imagined how some characters would appear if they were directed by Burton and the results are pretty awesome and spine-tingling.

According to Tarusov, who specializes in sexy pin-ups, most of these characters would look absolutely different and boisterous if they had to embrace Burton’s utterly aesthetic approach.

“I’m obviously a huge fan of Tim Burton and Super Heroes ; so when the idea hit me to combine both, I began working immediately,” Tarusov said.

“To colorfully mash-up characters with Burton’s quirky style, I had to take some of my favorite moments and characters and distort them in the same manner Burton would probably do,” the Russian illustrator added.
