Notice how Shan Yu doesn’t even question it or make a comment about “BUT YOU’RE A GIRL” he just instantly goes into a “I’LL TEACH YOU TO KILL MY MEN AND STEAL MY VICTORY” rage and I think about this a lot sometimes
((Well that might have to do with the fact that he’s a Hun. Women among the Huns had higher status than their Chinese counterparts and even some of their own men. Women were free to hunt and fight along side of the men, could choose their own husbands and divorce him if she choose to. There were even records of clans being led by women leaders. So for Shan Yu Mulan is just another soldier))
So happy to get Mulan for the lovely snarkies' Disney Ladies Collaboration on twitter! If I hadn't been destined to love Ariel by default, Mulan would be my favorite Disney lady of all time.

I thought I’d just combine part 2 and 3 and just do one final post.
Above is a drawing from the same versions as last post’s iterations. At one point the Snow Queen had a full fur coat made out of live white ermines!
Kristoff was also a different character back then from the final version of the film. Following are some pose-tests for the earlier character:
Also at one point, Elsa had a whole army of snowmen guards!
Now we are getting closer to the mountain man Kristoff from the final film.
Figuring out the character relationships is not only done in story, but also in visual development as well, as they are tasked with figuring out what that dynamic looks like visually:
And that concludes my little handful of selections from the work I have done on Frozen.
It’s always fun for me to revisit the work I had done while I was at Disney, as it is like looking at a yearbook from a long time ago. You looked different, you acted differently, and were altogether a different person. How cool that art also has, in a unique way, that finger print of who you were as a person in the past. Hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane. Now on to the future!
