Concept art from Tangled by Claire Keane. I love how she can draw in different styles.

For Rapunzel, (her hair is) this constant reminder that she has this gift. She has a destiny, a purpose. The more you hold her back, the more her hair grows. If she had not been kept in the tower, I don’t think she would have had that long hair. It’s part of her problem; there it is. Always a reminder. - Glen Keane
I got to meet Glen Keane last week at First 10+ exhibit at the GRworks gallery. He’s a super nice guy, we chatted a bit and he drew everyone there a sketch. I brought my Art of Tangled book and he signed and doodled Rapunzel for me :)
Glen Keane’s girls, aren’t they just lovely?

Let’s appreciate the perfection of Glen’s girls.
My favourite artist. EVER.
In Tangled, with Flynn, Mother Gothel, you see these little dents, these muscles. When Rapunzel is singing, her eyebrows go down. It was important to see that she’s pulling this power from inside. It’s not just the power of the words that’s making her glow, it’s something from inside. So when it’s cut, and she’s in such pain there, the pump is pulling from the heart, which brings the tear, and it’s still got that magic.
