Artist Comment: "Oh Kida, the lost princess. I feel bad for her, she really was pretty much forgotten. I always liked her though, even though Altantis wasn’t my favorite movie, her tribe and strength always interested me! I find her being the element of Gem/Earth very fitting. Such strength and shine hidden away underneath the ground."
Artist Comment: "This has been tons of fun to work on in between assignments and my job. I’ll be honest I had a really hard time with Belle, even though she’s one of my personal favorite Princesses. (I used to wear out my Beauty and the Beast VHS putting it on constant repeat.) I was scared to create her elemental because she fits well with a lot of elements I’ve already done. I originally thought of her as jumbled mess of metal and cogs, similar to her Father’s inventions. That didn’t work quite well enough since they are wood heavy. This idea came to me a bit later and her as a Candelabra/Chandelier stuck in my brain. Had. To. Do. IT."
Artist Comment: "She is the element of Sound… and plant? Not intentially, but leaves are so iconic to her look I had to put them in there! I really enjoyed the music in Princess and the Frog, it had a great Jazzy style to it! I listened to Almost There and Dig A Little Deeper while painting it. Got me in the mood! Had some issues with the question: “How do you show “sound” in a painting?” Hopefully I didn’t fall too far off the mark. Also tried to add some elements of Froggyness. Hope those elements show. She is by far the most “human” of all the DE i’ve done I think."
Artist Comment: "I know what you’re thinking… I’ve already done her! As I said before, I wanted to re-do her and make her more interesting and overall better quality. I wasn’t proud of the old version by any means."
Artist Comment: "Alright… maybe I cheated a little here, as Moon isn’t “technically” an element in really any country. Although if I am to go by Sailor Moon, which i most certainly did in this case, then i’m good. I’d prefer you not to judge me!
The moon is a big deal, and so is Cinderella. She’s very iconic! I don’t think i quite did her justice! Hope you all enjoy it though!"
