I saw a lot of my sisters and my relationship in Frozen. My younger sister definitely being Anna. Outgoing, funny, and silly at times. Me being a bit more like Elsa. Introverted and creative. So, here's some Frozen fan art. Plus, what a good excuse to draw a lot of sparkles and glowing stuff!

Interesting -- I'm always a fan of the more realistic style of artwork when it comes to Disney characters, but an additional surprise was how you adjusted her outfit to use an Empire bust. Given the 1840s time period, those might've been still in vogue in some circles so it's interesting to see a historically influenced take on the snow dress.

Do you have any interest in giving a similar treatment to Elsa's coronation dress?

I do believe this is the first piece of Frozen fanart I've seen, done in a realistic style, that I've actually liked. Usually when someone draws Elsa or Anna in a more anatomically believable fashion they end up losing that whole Disney element but somehow you've really managed to maintain Elsa's whole motif! Her beauty, her grace, that sense of somber isolation blending with the relief of finally being able to be herself; damned good stuff, madam!

Thank you so much! What a wonderful comment! You basically summed up exactly my thought process while painting, and I'm glad it translated well!

This is amazing. I wish I could be that skilled. 

I also love how the movie reminds you of you and your sister. The thing applied to me. I see my younger brother like Anna like you said outgoing, funny and silly. Every time I hear the song "Do You Want To Build A Snowman" it makes me want to cry.

Yeah, that instrumental part in the middle gets me!

Yay for Frozen reminding you of how close you and your sister(s) can be! <3 Funny how the older ones always seem to be more like Elsa, while the younger ones are more like Anna.

Anyway, love this, especially the rich detail on the beadwork on the dress's bodice and the snowflakes. It must have taken you a long time to complete this one. I'm loving the composition-- the simplicity and darkness brings to mind Elsa's isolation, yet her face is enveloped in a warm glow and has that expression of contentment.

Beautiful job! <33333333333

I think they did a great job with the sibling angle, seems like they did their research!
