Hey remember when I said last night that I wanted to do a mini comic with Romeo and Juliet ?
I actually wanted to do the balcony scene with a fire escape, but then a friend pointed out that it reminded her of West Side story. And -this is the most embarrassing moment ever- I told her ‘wait isn’t west side story something set in the far west ? like… with cowboys and stuff ?’……………… yeah that’s how much I actually know about it. A quick wikipedia search and boom there goes my fire escape plan ! I don’t really mind the similarities but I thought it would be better to acknowledge them rather than ignore them so I’ll watch the movie and see what I can do !
I still have that page drawn. And I still want to draw the comic. Some people told me they’d still like to have my take on that scene, so I’m going to do it, but I wanted to pay my respects to the movie/musical first !
Some doodles for a mini comic I want to draw about Romeo and Juliet !
Oh, Elsa. What are we going to do with you.
Frozen is purportedly set in the 1830’s-40’s, but I’ve been obsessed with finding a style that could marry her coronation gown with her ice gown more seamlessly; the open robes you see during the Regency era, including those being worn by Scandinavian royalty at the time, seemed a particularly apt analog for her… weird underarm-cape. Thing. You also see her mom wearing something very similar for something like ten years, so it’s not a huge stretch to think it could be a popular look in Arendelle. THAT’S MY EXCUSE.
I initially designed this for her coronation, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to explore how that same silhouette might work with her ice gown as well. Someday, theoretically, I would love to do a more literally iced-up version of her gown, but I figured the alternate colour way would be a nice middle ground to strike.
God, this woman! Her art is just amaze! I can’t stand it! I am so worthless and untalented compared to her
