It goes without saying that the Disney princesses could use a modern makeover. While they've progressed through the years, some of our original girlhood heroes were basically one-dimensional. So Russian artist Artemii Myasnikov has reimagined their hero status in a totally badass way.

Completely flipping the script on the "damsel in distress" ruse, you'll wish these were the princesses you grew up with. It's no wonder why his sketches are going viral.

"One night we were watching the Disenchantment series and we started a discussion on what we like/dislike about the main character. One of the things we both liked is how she's not a damsel in distress, unlike most of the princesses in Disney movies," he told Buzzfeed.

And so he began sketching princesses with a new goal in mind: making them armed and dangerous.

He started with Snow White because she's "the most damsel-in-distress-y princess ever," Myasnikov said. I mean, he's not wrong.

He made her "armed, dangerous, and in charge of her own fate."

Snow Knight was a hit, so naturally, the people wanted to see more!

Most designs have a medieval aspect to them, with just a touch of fantasy — his specialty.

Cinderella is taking no prisoners, smashing that dainty glass slipper with her gauntlet.

Maleficent is no match for Princess Aurora in this reimagined fantasy.

Belle is always strapped with extra weapons.

Rapunzel's got a new hairstylist, it seems, and she looks like she could destroy anything in her path with a single blade.

The details on Tiana's dress are outstanding. "It becomes a razor as she jumps and spins," he explained to Buzzfeed.

"With Tiana I wanted to give an impression that her layered skirt is a part of her armor and a weapon at the same time," he said.

Just when we thought we couldn't love Mulan any more than we already do, Myasnikov upgrades her armor to be even more impressive. Oh, and can we talk about Mushu?

Axes and archery are Pocahontas' poison. Meanwhile, Meeko looks like he's out for blood.

Anna, Elsa, and their trusted sidekick Olaf are kicking asses and taking names.

Jasmine carpet-jacked her magical ride from Aladdin and is coming in hot to save the day.

Moana has taken her badass-ery to an entirely new level.

And last but certainly not least, Ariel gets a much-needed feminist makeover and so does her trusted companion Sebastian, who acts as her armored steed going into battle.

Fans of Myasnikov's designs all just have one major question: How can they buy his prints?

Unfortunately, he won't be opening up commissions until late October. For now, you can stalk his artwork on Instagram here.
