The Queen of Arendelle by gabrielleragusi The Queen of Arendelle by gabrielleragusi
She was the Queen of Arendelle.

She acted as the heroine of her people...
But her people didn't know their real Queen.
Once the doors of her castle were closed, she could drop the act.
Because she was the villain.

And her men would welcome the Dark Queen.


I started this illustration one year ago, but had the time to complete it only now - just because I rediscovered it recently in a lonely sub-folder forgotten in another abandoned folder...

Please, don't hate me for turning dear sweet Elsa into the Dark Queen, I will make it up to you in the near future with another fan art of dear sweet Anna :heart:

This isn't too far off. She was supposed to be the villain.

Man, honestly, I'd love to have more of the story! This picture is so beautiful, and it reminds me of one of my favorite paintings, cafe.themarker.com/media/t/217… , though the composition isn't the same.

To me, Frozen would've been a much better movie if Elsa, at some point, was the villain. I can totally see her exploding with all the rage of all those years of being locked up alone, all the fear and resentment... then in the end, she would redeem because of her sister. That would've rocked xD anyways, GREAT work!!! Love the shading, the colours, the pose, you are very skilled :) keep at it!

Nah I like the dark twist.  Gives her more depth.  And she's not evil, just dark.  She has to take on that role to protect her kingdom from invaders right?  Maybe I'm reading too much into this, blame my writer's mind.  Either way its a beautiful piece of work!

Thank you!

Hmm, as you said, she's dark, so I'm not totally sure she's just protecting her kingdom from enemies... The first idea I had was about a villain: the first sketch of this illustration was way too graphic, featuring the Queen rising in a pool of blood and her people dead on the ground.

I was thinking more of a Queen whose first enemy is herself, struggling inside, as we can see in the first scenes of the original film. From there, she can even turn evil - and this is my wicked mind that's speaking!

Well.... the original story was actually going to have Elsa be the villain with Anna wanting her heart frozen because the guy she like broke it so.... I can see Elsa turning dark.

I always believe that Elsa has a dark side that has yet to be dealt with after the events of Frozen. Really well done on this. Really really love the ominous feel of it and despite that, you still kept Elsa's "spirit" prominent. 

Nicely done! I can't say that enough!
