My designs for a previous version of Frozen’s snow queen (A version when her skin was blue and she had pet ermines that accompanied her everywhere) The character was based off of the main character in the movie “Auntie Mame” from the 1960’s.
More Frozen visual development! Early exploration for a version of the Snow Queen character based on Bette Midler’s showgirl stage presence.

Aladdin sketches by Glen Keane
Early visual development of Elsa for Frozen. I was inspired by the late Amy Winehouse’s pathos. I imagined Elsa with a deep, soulful voice and dramatic mood swings.
Pitch poster for Frozen I did about 6 years ago when Chris Buck was developing and pitching the idea of Frozen.
More Frozen posts coming soon…

This is a great little look into how Keane thought during the animation of the little mermaid. They talk about how you forget Ariel is a animated character yet you just think of her as a real person, which i completely agree with i feel like she is real, she has the crazy curiosity of a 16 year old the stubbornness too and even though shes half fish i still think she is real. By the end of this year i would love to have created a character that when people see them moving on the screen they think that person is real. It also announces that Keane will be launching his own small studio! Hopefully we will be seeing some beautiful 2D animations coming from him in the future.
Added this week were some lively rough suggestions of Basil. Artwork is © to Glen Keane and the Walt Disney company. Also added was a Disney Villains mug (with Professor Ratigan) to the Merchandise page. This mug may be found and purchased on eBay.
Have a good weekend!
