Epic Hair (D)

We watched Tangled Before Ever After last night and I had some story/character issues but it was nice to see it more or less in 2D at last.  Here's some painting practice from today:
And the original sketch from 2010 (!):

Giselle On the Brain (D)

Once in 2009 I did these sketches after watching Enchanted (do ignore the off-model bits):
Then a few years later I did this working the idea a little more (along with another one here):
And then to round it all out I ended up polishing it up and adding a few more to end up with this.

The idea was all her costumes from the movie in the beautiful style of the animated prologue.  After introducing our kids to parts of the movie (after they've been listening to the soundtrack for a year) these were in my head all weekend and finally escaped.

Cinderellys (D)

Every year we watch a Disney animated movie for Valentine's Day. This year it was Cinderella. This is a random gesture sketch from 2012 and a quick painting exercise to freshen it up.
Accurate coloring FTW.
Then we thought we'd give the remake another try to see if we'd like it better the second time around... Not so much I'm afraid, but that dress! It sure is one.
Talk about blue.
