You never know where you’ll find inspiration.

What inspires you? 

Don’t know about the first two, but the last one is Glen Keane’s work for sure. :)

How is it that you cartoonized Rapunzel's face better than the Disney people? Props to you!

I’m not Glen!

But he was her character designer! So all the 3D modelers based their renders off of his original designs.

It’s weird, it seems that when you run up against a problem, you always think it’s because “oh I’m not good enough”. But- it’s not that, it’s just that you’ve kind of hit the limit of your knowledge, and you’ve got to go out and observe and get and find and discover and nothing more. Those are really great, those are the best times- when you feel like you stink and you can’t get it- that’s like, man, now the world is open and you’re ready to learn something new and you gotta go, you gotta take advantage of that.

But my question is this what is it that you believe makes your art stand out the most compared to the men who came before you and really paved the way for this wonderful art form. I'm trying to be more original but I feel like my art is just not strong enough.

I’m not affiliated with Glen Keane, Claire Keane, or Disney in anyway. I’m just a big fan of their art styles! 

However here’s an interview from the 2012 Dallas Film Festival where Glen talks about some things related to your question:
