Henrik, Giđđa and Kristoff

So a while ago I couldn’t get the image of Kristoff’s birth parents out of my head. So here the are. What I imagined them to be like anyway. I think it’s safe to say I was heavily influenced by Saami traditional clothing. In the 1800′s there were not as colourful and not all were so detailed, so I took reference from more recent traditional outfits. I also took creative license for a few things so that it would fit more in the Frozen movie!verse ;) 

I imagined they died of unknown causes so he was separated from them at a very young age, probably around 5 and that he would still sort of vaguely remember them.
Kristoff basically inherited his build and his face from his old man, only Henrik is bigger.  And from his mother, aside from her blond hair, more subtle things like how she smiles and her higher brow ridge and softer cheekbones.

I love your character designs. I'm trying to do stuff like that myself, do you have any tips you could pass along?

You're one of my favorite Frozen fan-artists and I came on your dA to show a friend your stuff and saw this for the first time.  I think it's SO COOL you thought of his parents and they're perfect.

Fun fact: I have a 1850's Saami kofte. It looks basically like what Kristoff would wear.

This is exquisitely elegant!!! Both characters are amazing, well-detailed, gorgeous/handsome and I can totally see them as Kristoff's parents. Though I'm not sure why but Gidda reminds me of Sacagawea (which I think makes her look more beautiful :D ) You've done and excellently outstanding art of magnificence!! Disney should hire you as an animator!!!!
