I see a lot of people mixing Guardians of Childhood books with the Rise of the Guardians movie, and I’m totally into that, I love it when people do that,
but the books and movie are actually pretty different. I wanted to make a fine line between what is in the books, and what is in the movie. That way, people won’t get confused or we can look at things from a different perspective.
I probably have left out a lot, and maybe forgotten a few things, but these are just the basics.
There are still a few books yet to come out for The Guardians of Childhood, so we don’t have full confirmation for a lot of things.
As for the movie, I really don’t see a sequel happening anytime soon, so I just went with the information we were given.
Otherwise, feel free to use this as a reference for any art or fan fictions you guys want to make! Any questions? Go ahead and ask~ <3

My favorite animated movie character. Out of all the characters I draw, my friends tend to like my Jack Frosts the best. Stupid me realized that I’ve had my tumblr for a month and I still hadn’t posted anything Rise of the Guardians yet. So now I did. Plus, the LONG (3 Years, Mr. Joyce!) awaited last book of the series was released over Easter.
hi! I remember seeing a lot of beautiful art (reference?) books on your snapchat (some of which i even wrote down to buy but lost the paper), and i wonder if you have some favourites/recommendations? I'm buying one for my friend's birthday and she loves art a lot (your art as well, she doesn't like kpop but adored your art so much when i showed her).
thank you :’D
Hmm, ok, I have a few books I can recommend more ( I can’t say they’re my faves cuz all of them are my faves tbh)
Rooftops of Paris
Fifty Years of Illustration
Graphic. (Inside the Sketchbooks of the World’s Greatest Graphic Designers)
Mattias Adolfsson - The First in Line, The Second in Line, the Third in Line
The Art of How to Train Your Dragin (1,2) / Brave / Peabody and Sherman / Rise of the Guardians
the Rise of the Guardians art book says that Tooth’s design was inspired by “half-bird, half-human gods of ancient Buddhist and Hindu cultures” and off kinnaris - bird-human characters found in Thai mythology, so I wondered why they made her skin so light if she was based off characters from these cultures. I wondered what she would have looked like with brown skin.
this was more of a colour palette experiment, but personally I do think the browns work with the teals and greens better. I still do like DWA’s interpretation of the Tooth Fairy as it’s nice to see a Tooth Fairy that isn’t a blonde girl in a big dress
Your character designs are awesome! Do you have any recommendations for character design books or online resources? Thanks!
Sorry my reply is so delayed! Books or resources? HMM, the Drawn to Life books are good for fundamentals. For character design specifically? Ehh I get a lot of my inspiration from different production art books. The Rise of the Guardians art book has some really good stuff on shape and designing characters in groups. Also any of the Kungfu Panda books have some great material too. No like, lessons or anything, but really strong examples.
