pat7 (or Patricia Lestari of Patty Cakes) Disney Princess set featuring the "Seven [Catholic] Virtues" --- an offset of the "Seven [Deadly] Sins" (a "Seven Sins" DeviantART set piece by chill07 can be viewed @Jezebel.com) has been making 'rounds around the tumblrsphere and on general craftsmanship alone, the pieces are wonderfully colorful and befitting of the chosen Princesses. Funnily enough this artist appears to be the only artist (so far) who's completed a set of Disney artwork featuring either virtures or sin and I could've swore this kind of genre would've been more popular, especially given the design of Disney's product overall, among artists. That aside, I've searching for other artists to spotlight here with the other Disney heroines, but it's a troublesome task given that searching characters like Kida or Nani seem to bring up nothing but cheesecake and bondage art (ick, ick, icky-poo-poo).







On a final note does anyone know the name of this lovely template used as the character's backdrop? I know it was popularized by official Sailor Moon artwork (such as this), but I've never known the 'name' of the style that's used.

There was another set that directly inspired this one, but it looks like all the pieces have been placed in storage (whatever that means... dA, I don't understand you anymore). It can be viewed here -- the artist is ~chill07.

I also found this villainous set and this photoshoot for the Disney princesses.

The style used in the background is inspired by Alphonse Mucha (or more generally, the art nouveau movement).

Oh I see. That stinks, I really liked the art!

And no problem. :) That series of Sailor Moon images was my first exposure to that art style and when I finally found Mucha's art I was just like OMG!!!

These are so pretty. And I love seeing artwork reflecting the positive aspects of the princesses, when so many seem intent on tearing them down.
