I started this article "series" almost a an ago, but abandoned my fandoms for a while (very sorry to the people who were looking vers l'avant, vers l’avant to it), but now I'm back and want to continue the articles (hopefully consistently), please enjoy!


If any of toi are familiar with character stylization ou really art in general toi 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 ou director's) original idea of what they wanted the princess to come off as. And if this is at all interesting to toi toi can look up this with different artists par searching it as "the artist's definition of (their work)" and maybe toi 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 animation 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 par 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 précédant creations like Bambi and Katrina van Tassel. In fact, around the studio he mostly animated animaux and Cendrillon was his seconde time animating a human character (with Alice, Aurora and La Fée Clochette 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 Cendrillon she has hardly any features in attempt to match the Mary Blair art style, but eventually she started gaining plus 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 jouer la comédie for reference and wanted her image nearly copied; However Davis didn't much care for her structure and designed Cendrillon par her voice actor instead of the model.





The question 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 cloche, 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 ou Danielle from Ever After, which Cendrillon doesn't really have since it's much closer to Snow White.





Based on what I got from what he a dit 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 Cendrillon wears no make-up with no harsh lines ou accessories, but I feel that the "country" aspect is lost, she doesn't really look too "girl" like ou "on the ranch," instead she actually leans plus towards a plus 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 Cendrillon was going to be a plus "simple country girl" type, which instead comes across as a similar "regal dainty southern bell."

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

 Accidental Discrimination?
Accidental Discrimination?
Okay, so the plus I think about this, the plus it starts to bother me. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall any Disney Princesses having green eyes. What's up with that?!

Snow White: brown
Cinderella: blue
Aurora: blue
Ariel: blue
Belle: brown
Jasmine: brown
Pocahontas: brown
Mulan: brown
I think Tiana's eyes are brown too.

Even the majority of Disney's other leading ladies don't have jade-coloured peepers. I'm pretty sure Tarzan's Jane has blue eyes, as does Giselle in Enchanted. So do Alice (in Wonderland) and Peter Pan's Wendy! I can't really tell what colour Megara's eyes are in Hercules (blue...

It’s kind of odd that the opening scene in the movie is last in our countdown. Here is where we meet our hero AND our villain. They are setting sail from England to the new world in chercher of the three G’s; Glory, God and Gold. We also meet Thomas, a young clumsy boy on the road to becoming a man. He immediately strikes...

 Disney Heriones
Disney Heriones
The two most populaire Disney women outside of the DP franchise. These two exotic beauties are definitely fan favoris when it comes to Animated Heriones, so why aren't they apart of the official line-up? The main reason people complain about Mulan being an official princess is that she gets recognized when these two ladies don't. Even though Megara is closer to royalty than her and Esmeralda is pretty much equal to Mulan. So basically I'm going to do the same thing I did with Merida. Look at the Pros and Cons of adding Esmeralda and Megara to the line-up. The only difference is, Merida still...

 Seriously, if these three were princesses they'd be #1
Seriously, if these three were princesses they'd be #1
Oh my god! This is literally the hardest countdown I've ever done! I did this liste awhile back and my opinion has changed radically on all the princesses. With my favourites list, one princess moved, with this liste they've all changed places, I used math to help me rank them and I was surprised, especially par my #8. I gave each of them scores of 1-10 for three different areas, face, body and hair. Then added it up. No one got 30 as their final score. Funny enough, even though they're princesses, none of them are perfect. To be honest I'm only sure about my haut, retour au début two, this liste could change again...

With the pending release of two “Snow White” revamps, boasting Kristin Stewart and Lily Collins in the leading roles – I began to wonder: look-wise, who could fill the shoes of the other 9 princesses? And after exhausting Google image, I’ve found my answer. These celebrity-princess doppelgangers share plus than merely eye and hair colour; in fact, many are practically identical. Give their faces and features plus than a quick glance and I promise you’ll agree.
