Elsa by Raikoh-illust Elsa by Raikoh-illust
I saw Frozen, so that made me want to draw the ice queen
The movie was alright, though nothing spectacular  compared to the classic Disney fairy tales movies, but I did loved that this was a sibling relationship story of Elsa and her sister Anna, sibling love it's something unique and new that I haven't seen on a Disney animated movie, so that was lovely.

Hey, would you mind if I used this as the cover of my fic "To Melt A Frozen Heart" on FFN? This is a spectacular piece of artwork, and it's perfect for the concept of my fic (albeit, the quality of this piece far exceeds the quality of my fic, in my opinion). I wanted to first ask your permission, however. And I intend to give you credit for it in the description if you agree to let me use it. Getting your work stolen sucks. I know firsthand.
So may I? I'll love you forever!

The sibling love relationship isn't new, although I believed as you did that Frozen was unique: Lilo and Stitch tried it, but the age difference colored the relationship.  The closer ages made for a better relationship between the two possible, which Elsa's isolation put on hold.

How do you learn to draw like this?!  I've been drawing for two years and I've hit a brick wall and can't make any progress.

Also, your art style reminds me of Doomfest.

I could really picture Elsa finding Anna's frozen body and holding a revolver in her hand to contemplate whether or not to commit suicide or to shoot Anna, who appears as her hallucination and live on her life without her younger sister.

Elsa: (Feeling angry, but her anger changes to sadness) I-I didn't mean to freeze anybody.....
Anna: (Holding her revolver towards her older sister) No one ever does, Elsa!

Sibling/family love is actually pretty common in Disney movies, the first that comes to mind is Lilo and Stitch. If you've never seen it, you definitely should, the bond between Lilo and her sister is beautiful. Putting that aside, beautiful drawing :)

You've really made Elsa look as beautiful as she does in the movie. :) I too like how the movie went into another direction with it's theme of love which is more of a family love. It helps make it stand out from the rest.

Well mostly because they rely too much on Pixar :roll: Which makes all the money than Disney does. Shame really :no: Disney did such a better job with its hand drawn animation I have no idea why they just gave up on it :shrug:

Relying on Pixar isn't such a bad thing, I personally really like Pixar (usually more than disney).
Although they never slowed down the production: about 1 disney classic (which means made by walt disney feature animation) per year.
Other disney movies are usually sequels made by a smaller disney studio.

As for the hand drawn animation, it depends of your taste. I also really liked their hand-drawn era but that may be caused by nostalgia. Or maybe it looks somewhat more "mature" this way, I don't know.

That's fine and all, but wouldn't it seem best to be working on their own terms instead of sharing with Disney? Just a thought. Not to mention you gotta admit it gets kind of tiring to see they win all the awards for animation when there are just as good other films that should deserve something. Just saying. I don't hate Pixar, I only say this because everything they do is just gosh darn great you can't hate it... Just my opinion nothing disrespectful. Heh, now ain't that the truth, not to mention all of them are based off from something except for their PG films like Atlantis, Lilo & Stitch, and Treasure Planet. 

Well here's my question compared to CGI and hand drawn. What is it they are doing when making a CGI film it is always PG and never G. Mostly Pixar has G rated films and many of Disney's hand drawn animations we're mostly G given the fact if the concept of their films we're too deep. That's just my question. Their are like a lot of things that CGI has that bothers me compared to hand drawn animation which isn't just story plots or running time.

Disney bought Pixar. That's probably why they aren't working on their own terms.
I also think awards are bullshit. Besides, an awarded movie doesn't prevent it from being good.
That being said, I always loved Pixar more than Disney. Not in terms of graphism, but in terms of story and film direction.
About CGI, I don't know if you noticed but Disney used it for a long time. I can remember that the hunter's car in The Fox and the Hound (1981) really looks computer generated, and the gears in the clock, in The Great Mouse Detective are for sure computer generated. I should check if I'm right but I'm pretty sure it is.
Now if by CGI you meant fully CG movies, that just depends on your taste and point of view.
I think the beautiful work on lights and high details due to CGI does make Pixar movies "deeper" and that it really fits with the story.
However, I would prefer to watch some hand-drawn or 2D CGI fun cartoons than high-detailed 3D cartoons.
