Disney is diverse, but there are still guys who have a hard time relating to their characters.

So we had John Ramirez, a Disney artist, come in and turn some men into rad characters.

The guys got to live out their fantasies through their new Disney characters.

"He's way cooler than me."

After sketching out the initial drawings with the guys, John cleaned them up and added some color.

The guys were so excited!

These characters were definitely unique and unlike most stuff you see in cartoons.

They were inspired to get these characters out there.

"I think a lot of kids in general would respond to this. You can really base an animated story off of anyone's story or anyone's dream."
