Finally some colored art for Ash’s Inuit re-imagining of Frozen/Snow Queen.
Ash came up with the premise of it being set in Greenland during the 1940s and just everything is brilliant about it. How it’s set during WW2 and how Qila’s best friend, Malik, joins a special force called the Sledge Patrol to help defend the eastern coast of Greenland (I’m just reiterating what’s in the post linked above so go take a look).
I’m just here to help draw some concepts for it so meet Qila and Nanook.
I also tried drawing in an Inuit inspired style. Sorry, I have a lot to learn on that front, but I tried to depict part of the story where Malik leaves with the Sledge Patrol. And Ash and I haven’t really talked about the next part, but I imagined Malik stumbling into the Snow Queen’s clutches by accident, maybe slipping into a cave or somewhere. I’m really not sure. I just wanted to show him getting into trouble and then being frozen by some unknown power. And that’s it. I’ll try and get into drawing some Malik concepts next.
Aaaand a Mongolian Snow Queen, to go with yesterday’s princess design! Honestly, the concept art that I’ve seen of the Snow Queen disappoints me the most. Don’t get me wrong: the art is amazing and the look isn’t bad, but when you google image search “snow queen” (or “ice queen”), all you’ll see are those exact same designs. There’s awfully little out of the box thinking going on here, Disney (oh how easily the genericness could have been avoided had they chosen a different setting).
But who knows, maybe the final product will be radically different from the concept art and super interesting?? Haha, we’ll see! In any case, have a design that I personally would have liked to see in the movie.
So I just spent… the last hour or so of my life fangirling over the designs people have come up with at thiscouldhavebeenfrozen. That blog is pretty much my new favorite thing, SO I WILL ATTEMPT TO CONTRIBUTE. *__*
