Odette! Swan princess! I used to have all their VHS’s, and we were crazy mad about her. I watched this back in the spring, and I had a revelation: The Swan Princess was so SEXIST! Odette does shit-all when she’s captured, especially in the sequels! Prince Derek has to go save her ass from the bad guy every time. And her animal friends’ jokes are so corny. :C I can’t believe how much my opinion changed about her.

This is something that I do when I have trouble getting a sketch out. It gives me plenty of poses and plenty of practice, and next time I’m having trouble getting an idea onto paper I have one of these little ladies to help. I hate recycling the same poses, it’s never a good idea to have the same arms-to-the-sides pictures because your content will be flaccid and unappealing.
