My character designs for Cassandra from Tangled: The Series! Cassandra stayed pretty close to the top drawing, and her ‘lady in waiting’ outfit is on the bottom left. These were SO FUN to do. I really love this character.
Rapunzel I did this as a exercise to see how I would have designed Rapunzel for the new tv series, it’s just my take on it. I really adore the style the tv show has taken, I just wanted to play around.
Today is premiere day and the last of the Tangled drawings I did that I will post for a good long time. More calisthenics… we really worked hard to give Mercury as much information as possible. While this was a very enjoyable experience for me ultimately I turned down working on the show to continue on with my good friend, Sam Levine, and his show Penn Zero. I look forward to posting some of what we have done on season 2 for that show when the time comes!
OBS: These edits were created simply to give me a chance to practice my manipulation/anatomy skills. Nothing more, nothing less. They are NOT meant to be “better than the original” or “what it should have looked like”, or serve as a general negative critique on the respective movies’ animation styles. (OK, maybe a little with this one… :P)
There’s no question that Disney does a lot of things better than DreamWorks, but one thing DreamWorks does far better than Disney is female character design. Seriously, Disney, don’t pretend that it is impossible to give your female characters distinct looks. Stop giving us the exact same face on every single female computer animated character. Your animation is so distinctly beautiful in so many areas, why do you insist on phoning this one in?
