I thought I’d just combine part 2 and 3 and just do one final post.
Above is a drawing from the same versions as last post’s iterations. At one point the Snow Queen had a full fur coat made out of live white ermines!
Kristoff was also a different character back then from the final version of the film. Following are some pose-tests for the earlier character:
Also at one point, Elsa had a whole army of snowmen guards!
Now we are getting closer to the mountain man Kristoff from the final film.
Figuring out the character relationships is not only done in story, but also in visual development as well, as they are tasked with figuring out what that dynamic looks like visually:
And that concludes my little handful of selections from the work I have done on Frozen.
It’s always fun for me to revisit the work I had done while I was at Disney, as it is like looking at a yearbook from a long time ago. You looked different, you acted differently, and were altogether a different person. How cool that art also has, in a unique way, that finger print of who you were as a person in the past. Hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane. Now on to the future!

Don’t worry, it doesn’t just take down the sources post, but it takes down all the reblogged posts too. Please give this a reblog, many artists out there may not know this is here. And remember, ask permission before sharing, or don’t post it.
I was talking to my brother about women’s attitudes towards their bodies, especially regarding weight/fat, and when he said “most guys don’t notice/care about that kind of thing,” I tried to explain why it was a lot more complicated than that. I ended up telling this story.
Body image is something that’s so hard to talk about, and it’s hard to express body positivity without sounding cheesy, false, or overly simplistic. But I’m gonna try. This is only my own experience, and it didn’t magically cure me of all my body image issues - but it was a major turning point for me nonetheless.
No man is an island, this I know But can’t you see? Maybe you were the ocean when I was just a stone // Oh I don’t wanna beg your pardon And I don’t wanna ask you why But if I was to go my own way Would I have to pass you by?
