Gosh, it's been a while since I posted any arts. Tsk! I have a few on deck, I just haven't followed through yet. Soon, mayhap!
Anyway, like many of you I'm sure, last week we went to see the latest from Disney animation, Frozen. While I'm sure I'll forever wish it were hand-drawn animation, as it was originally planned to be, when I finally saw it most of my misgivings gave way to enjoying it a lot overall, as basically predicted. It's not perfect, but it's pretty good. I didn't think it was the MOST original Disney movie, and there were shades of other films here and there, but it still had a lot of new delights to offer. I generally try to avoid spoilers (including listening to the soundtrack beforehand, contrary to my lifelong practice), so it surprised me a few times, and I have not been able to get the music out of my head for days (though I would still would have loved to hear what Alan Menken would have done with this story...), and in fact I'm listening to the soundtrack right now, ha ha. Anyway, the next time I picked up pen and sketchbook, this was the inevitable result. You can probably tell by sizing and placement who I consider to be the star, ha ha. Also, there are some issues with costuming and off-model elements, but I was operating on having only seen it once. I'm still not on board with Olaf. There's something about his design that just bugs me... and also his voice. So, that explains the various redesign concepts on the bottom right. (C'mooon, Disney... those took me all of two minutes, and I'm just me.)
I would like to see this again. And maybe again after that.
