hans westergard

“Arendelle is indebted to you, Your Highness.”

Let’s take a look at Hans’ smile here as this woman says this to him. This here was the moment that sold me on Hans being a benevolent prince. He leans down, looks this woman in the eye, and smiles despite the terrible state Arendelle is in.

That smile is genuine.

For the first time in his life, Hans has responsibilities over a kingdom. He has the chance to show people that he’s more than willing and more than able to be a ruler. He’s grateful for this opportunity, and he seizes every moment he is given as he looks over Arendelle. He wants to do well.

This is why Hans shouldn’t be dismissed as just a “douchebag” or just plain “evil.” This smile shows just how happy he is to be fulfilling his dream.

Hans is far more complex than these simple labels people have given him.

The longer the wait took, the less patience could young prince have.

I haven’t thought of the context in this picture but I so you can think up your own scenario. I think that Hans and his ship was fighting an enemy ship, but lost and got captured. But Ariel, who was caught in the crossfire, got pissed and attacked the first person to fall in the water.


Y'ello everyone! Take some of the fancomic’s artwork/development for your viewing pleasure :> Still have much to draw and write, but things are going steady! Sorry for the long-post but…it seems that photo-posts don’t deserve a ‘read more’ tool…right. Great.


I don’t think I remember doing a picture with so many different noses, hairstyles and body-shapes in it. i’m glad they are ‘just’ 13 because I was starting to lack ideas for those noses! GEEESH.

And the hardest part of the character design was to make them all different but still similar enough to look like they are bothers. As if designing independent characters wasn't hard enough >_>

I have a love-hate relationship with group pictures. Hate to do them, love to see the final results. *looks at the fruits of her labor* Yup, I dig it.

Okay! So this is my headcanon for the Westergard family! 

It is rather usual for everyone to assume that Hans’s brothers were cruel and bullied him frequently, but…sometimes neglect is the worse kind of abuse. Physical pain can be more tolerable than psychological pain, and I think that his brothers didn’t exclude Hans from their lives with the actual purpose of hurting him. I really think that they all suffered from the same predicament: the constant hunt to find their purpose in the kingdom of the Southern Isles. The problem was that Hans came too late, and when he wanted to show that he was good enough and could be of value, all the positions were taken. So, let’s analyse each brother, one by one.
