Artist Comment: "I know people are probably sick of this…..The Disney Princesses as “something.” Even still I always find it interesting when someone takes a beloved character and changes perspective on it. Plus its an interesting design challenge, to change a character drastically while keeping them recognizable and making the changes believable.
Having said all that: Here’s is my interpretation of Mulan, element of fire. This made sense to me, and I hope to you too. Dragonfire, plus she is such a strong passionate woman. My other candidate for Fire was Jasmine, as she has a similar attribute. But I mean Mulan DID have a dragon."
Artist Comment: "Rapunzel, element of light. Again, another obvious choice. I don’t think I could’ve gotten away with doing anything else. Her sunny disposition was so fitting in the film, I had to give her a little smile."
Artist Comment: "…Alright, again, not a traditional element, however I couldn’t resist the temptation of making her into a Fairy, she should be! I mean, she’s the only important female from her movie that isn’t. Again, tried to incorporate some elements, like the spindel and her flowing hair. Her face gave me some trouble, but I think i kind of got… something here. Also, I couldn’t decide between red or blue! Haha so i put them both, and a touch of green.
This guys is crazy talented, he should be doing art for Magic the Gathering or something, not like this would be a waste of talent though, someone has to make amazing Disney art"
Artist Comment: "So I had a lot of different ideas for her after watching the movie Brave. At first I was thinking a transmogrification element, her essentially half beast, but after thought that didn’t really stick. Then I thought of the wisps and what sort of element that could be. None of those were really calling out to me, so i went back and thought about her. Ultimately her love for her mother changed everything. I needed an element that fit her sweetness as well as her strength. Nothing is more fierce, strong and capable of love than the heart."
Artist Comment: "Oh. My. God. Was I struggling with this one. Ever since I saw Wreck It Ralph I wanted to do Vanellope. She was so adorable, albeit a little bit crazy! I couldn’t pass up to play on her “glitchy” side. I had an idea of half of her body in mid teleport but it quickly started looking like that “saw in half” magic trick gone horrible awry. So I came up with -many- iterations of her. Like 20 sketches and even still i’m not 100%. At this point I’ve seen her so much I don’t even know if this picture looks ok… everything is… hazy."
