My Visual Development Work from Frozen - Part 1
How about a blast from the past?
Frozen just came out, and ”The Art of Frozen” book is also available for purchase, but since I haven’t seen what is included of my work in the book yet, I’ll post a few things I gathered from the work I’ve done on the movie.
The work I did consisted mostly of character designing- mainly Kristoff and Anna, and some Elsa. I started work on Frozen I think from all the way back in 2009.
Minus this very first image of Kristoff and Anna, these images will probably be from the earliest versions. The visual development from later and most recent versions will probably be in part 2 and part 3.
These drawings are the very first designs I did for Anna and Kristoff.
As many of you may know, animated films go through various changes, which includes characters and their personalities. In this early version, Anna and Kristoff’s characters were different from who they are in the final film.
The main cultural reference we focused on back then was a group of reindeer-herding indigenous group of Scandinavians called the Sami People. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sami_people)
So I started from there with these designs, trying to be as faithful as I can to their unique and beautiful costumes.
Some variations of Kristoff:
Probably the most different thing about the earliest version was the Snow Queen her self.
Here are some designs of her based off the earliest iterations:
It’s always a little uneasy seeing your old work, and even more so to share it with everyone. I drew differently, and thought of drawing differently. But seeing these drawings from 4 years ago, and how much movement has happened since then, gives me anticipation for my growth as an artist in the future. Hopefully I’ll be at a much better, different place 4 years from now too.
Also, congratulations to the whole Frozen crew for creating such a hit. Now just comes the good part.:)
If you would like to see more of the artistry gone into Frozen by many people, check out “The Art of Frozen”: http://www.amazon.com/The-Art-Frozen-Charles-Solomon/dp/1452117160
All the images from Frozen is the property of the Walt Disney company.
Part 2 and Part 3 coming soon..
Even though I think the art is amazing and I feel bad judging a movie who’s not even out yet… But this post confirm some of the points I already saw on Tumblr.
While Sami people were clearly a source of inspiration (even if just in the beginning) all of these designs show white people (if that doesn’t say anything to you, I don’t know what will). And I’m terribly sad that there WAS a desire for different, unique female characters but that it was decided that they all should be Beauty Base Zero, Disney style.

Myotonia congenita is a genetic neurological condition that causes cells to have too much sodium but not enough chloride. This leads to abnormal repetitive electrical signals from the brain, such as those associated with being startled.
tl;dr, these kittens suffer a temporary paralysis whenever they’re slightly surprised.
The condition causes stiffness in the esophagus which makes it difficult for them to eat and breathe; many die very, very young.
Other complications include:
- spiration pneumonia (caused by swallowing difficulties)
- Frequent choking or gagging (also caused by swallowing difficulties)
- Abdominal muscle weakness
- Chronic joint problems
- Injury due to falls
These kittens here were a pair of littermates who suffered the condition. Both of them were killed by their illness within their first 18 months of life.
As I’ve said before and will say again (angrily) whenever this crosses my dash, this shit is NOT FUNNY.
THANK you. “Fainting” animals aren’t a good thing.
I get so sick of seeing gifs like this on tumblr of animals that are suffering/scared/stressed etc. that are passed around as being cute and funny. They’re not.
I’m starting a new tag on here just for this kind of bullshittery… “Tumblr glorifying animal cruelty.”
Removed said bullshittery.
But you know, we just don’t know. I think there is a difference between people “glorifying animal cruelty” and just ignorance.
Anyway, I’m glad that there is people like letsloveanimals who can clarify when some seemingly harmless behaviors* are in fact dangerous for the animal it concerns.
(* if I saw my cat do that irl, I would be worried, but you can find so many video of cats doing crazy silly things that I just thought it was one of the things others people’s cats do.)

Hey Tumblr, do you know a good hairdresser in Dublin for unnatural hair color? Just to dye a strand of hair in gradient colors, somewhere with good prices compared to the quality of the service?
I’ve begun silently fighting back against jerks on the subway who sit as spread out as possible. Basically I match your stance.
This guy was sitting on the train with his knees splayed and his hands on the seat to either side of him. So I slowly backed up into the seat next to him forcing him to either move his hand or have me sit on it. Then I spread my knees equally wide and stuck my elbows out just as far.
It’s amazing how uncomfortable this makes men.
Eventually he closed his knees more (so I closed mine.) The ladies across from me noticed this silent warfare and were slightly confused. When he finally got off the train and I sat like a “lady” they realized what I did and grinned at me.
Yep. This is my new thing to do on the subway.
ur a little rebel i like u
You know why most guys sit like that?
It’s a body language signal known as a “crotch display” and it’s used to show dominance/confidence.
This is why guys get uncomfortable when women do this, and also why women are told to sit “like a lady” - basically, without the crotch display. When women do it, they’re telling all the dudes that they’re either stronger or on equal standing with them.
So I say right on, ladies! Go for it.
WE DO NOT SIT WITH OUT LEGS SPREAD BECAUSE WE WANT TO ‘SEXUALLY DOMINATE THE SCENE’ OR WHATEVER BULLCRAP YOU WANT TO COME UP WITH.
WE SIT LIKE THAT BECAUSE WE HAVE TESTICLES IN THE MIDDLE THAT ARE FUCKING SENSITIVE TO HEAT AND PRESSURE, MAKING IT MORE COMFORTABLE TO SPREAD OUR LEGS.
WE CLOSE OURS WHEN YOU ‘IMITATE’ US BECAUSE WE REALISE YOU WANT MORE SPACE AND SO WE BE POLITE AND GIVE IT TO YOU
WE SIT LIKE THIS ANYWHERE
HOW ARE WE OPRESSING YOU WHEN WE SIT LIKE THIS ON OUR OWN, IN PRIVATE?
NOT EVERYTHING IS THE GODDAMN PATRIARCHY
YO THERE’S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SPREADING YOUR LEGS TO TAKE UP TWO OR THREE SEATS
AND NOT CRUSHING YOUR BALLS
YOU KNOW THE BEST WAY FOR YOUR BALLS NOT TO BE CRUSHED?

Your Brain on Poverty: Why Poor People Seem to Make Bad Decisions
In August, Science published a landmark study concluding that poverty, itself, hurts our ability to make decisions about school, finances, and life, imposing a mental burden similar to losing 13 IQ points.
It was widely seen as a counter-argument to claims that poor people are “to blame” for bad decisions and a rebuke to policies that withhold money from the poorest families unless they behave in a certain way. After all, if being poor leads to bad decision-making (as opposed to the other way around), then giving cash should alleviate the cognitive burdens of poverty, all on its own.
Sometimes, science doesn’t stick without a proper anecdote, and “Why I Make Terrible Decisions,” a comment published on Gawker's Kinja platform by a person in poverty, is a devastating illustration of the Science study.
