I started this artikel "series" almost a jaar ago, but abandoned my fandoms for a while (very sorry to the people who were looking vooruit, voorwaarts to it), but now I'm back and want to continue the artikels (hopefully consistently), please enjoy!


If any of u are familiar with character stylization of really art in general u might like this article. I'm talking about character stylization in the sense that when the artist is also the auteur of the character's personality and has written out their every thought in simply the way they are designed. This can also be called "interpreted art" as anyone can perceive it differently, but a common factor still remains that everyone agrees on. BASICALLY I'm going to "guess" what the princess' personality is like based on the way she's drawn, see what the general consensus is on her personality is and compare it to the artist's (strictly NOT the writer of director's) original idea of what they wanted the princess to come off as. And if this is at all interesting to u u can look up this with different artists door searching it as "the artist's definition of (their work)" and maybe u can find this with other characters.

P.S I know I had to do a lot of digging on the older movies, because of the lack of documentation, so good luck on the ones post 1980's!


Cinderella -- Cinderella

At this point in time Disney had established itself as a beloved children's animatie studio, however the studio was bankrupt at the time with Cinderella, seemingly, about to be the last animated feature to come out, because of this Cinderella's staff, especially animators, were low-budget. Eventually the honor of Cinderella's design (influenced door Mary Blair's artwork) was bestowed upon Marc Davis with Eric Larson and Les Clark as supervising animators.

Walt Disney had chosen Marc Davis specifically, because Mary Blair's art suggested softer lines and Davis was someone he new was very good with making soft characters, mostly do to his vorige creations like Bambi and Katrina busje, van Tassel. In fact, around the studio he mostly animated animals and Cinderella was his seconde time animating a human character (with Alice, Aurora and Tinkerbell soon to come).

Marc Davis was very fond of the "simple country girl" aspect for her design, but he wanted aspects of her to be beautiful to "really offset the ugliness of the step-sisters."
In many early concepts of Cinderella she has hardly any features in attempt to match the Mary Blair art style, but eventually she started gaining meer detailed features with Davis favoring the sketches in which she had two plats on each side of her head.





Of course the live-action reference model had a lot to do with how Cinderella's hair and outfits eventually turned out, in fact Disney himself liked the model's style and acting for reference and wanted her image nearly copied; However Davis didn't much care for her structure and designed Cinderella door her voice actor instead of the model.





The vraag is: Does her finale form encompass the feeling the animator wanted for her character?

All in all I believe what he was trying to convey with Cinderella's looks is almost a chic country southern klok, bell type of look, but covered with a messy and simple exterior, keeping her face light and regal, but still hinting that she sweats and works hard. The mental image I get in my head is Snow White with messy ponytails and dirt on her face, but still naturally pretty. Personality-wise I feel it'd be closer to Jessie from Toy Story of Danielle from Ever After, which Cinderella doesn't really have since it's much closer to Snow White.





Based on what I got from what he zei and his concept art I feel like she turned out a bit too clean-cut and graceful like Belle. I think the "natural beauty" is definitely there seeing as Cinderella wears no make-up with no harsh lines of accessories, but I feel that the "country" aspect is lost, she doesn't really look too "girl" like of "on the ranch," instead she actually leans meer towards a meer mature and graceful look.





Cinderella's outfit, though is very true to form it's simple and maid-like and looks like she takes care of all of the work and spends time in the farm, the fact that it isn't very flattering brings out the beauty beneath the rags which is definitely Davis' vision (and of course the theme of Cinderella). I do think it's a bit too maid-like though, and isn't something like an outdoor stable-hand outfit, (or closer to a milk-maid look) instead it gives me a 1940's housewife vibe.





I think his concepts can definitely be seen in the final product, but, for me, I don't think it fully encompasses what he was going for especially since his contribution to this version of Cinderella was going to be a meer "simple country girl" type, which instead comes across as a similar "regal dainty southern bell."

So what do u think; does Cinderella perfectly embody what u think her animator was going for, of do u think she's way off? Do u agree with me? Would u have preferred the animator's original idea of what she turned out like? Tell me what you're thinking in the comments, especially tell me if you'd like to see meer (since I started this so long ago).

Since Mulan is princess of the month, here some thoughts about which bloem fits her the best. The movie, after all, offers some choices. The most obvious one is the magnolia, since that’s the translation of the name Mulan.

Then there is the white bloem Mulan wears in her hair when she meets the matchmaker – the same bloem she leaves behind when she goes to war. I’m not sure what kind of bloem that’s suppose to be. I first considered lotus (since the lotus is such a reveled bloem in Asia and gets often connected to the gods), but a lotus has meer petals. A white kers-, cherry blossom...

Aladdin: So here we were, early 1990's, and the Disney Renaissance was at its peek. The studios had produced two of the highest grossing animated films of all time and still were pushing on. However the team suffered a tragic loss with the death of lyricist Howard Ashman who surprisingly had had a large amount of creative input on the vorige two films. (He named Ariel) It was even his idea to make the volgende Disney animated feature, Aladdin released on November 25, 1992. However, much to the disappointment of many, this would be the last picture to showcase a royal fairytale princess for the...

 12 Season Color Wheel
12 Season Color Wheel
So I never really got to experience much of fashion-culture growing up and have just recently begun to give it any focus of attention. I have heard of the rule that "Redheads shouldn't wear pink." and I have seen some people discuss this here on FanPop in terms of Ariel and her roze dress. I have also read many commentaren debating Aurora's famous "Blue vs. roze Dress". In those discussions, I heard a talented user on this site, link say things like "She's a Winter." etc. I thought that was so fascinating! I had never heard of this concept before so I decided to look into it. That is how I came...

Second: Here is my personal break-down analysis based on knowledge of Arab/Muslim culture compared to the Disney Aladdin film.

The majority of Princess Jasmine's numerous flaws stem from the fact that she is completely inaccurate and offensive to her culture. From the clothes she wears to the way she speaks, jasmijn does not represent Arab of Muslim women at all but rather a disgraceful woman in their culture. Unfortunately, Jasmine...
