Elsa and Anna Frozen portrait by rmchaix Elsa and Anna Frozen portrait by rmchaix
Queen Elsa and princess Anna of frozen, classic portrait style. I really really enjoy made it. took me several months, most of all in the faces bcuz i want to represent Anna and Elsa as i can imagine them in real person.
for me, most of real Elsa fanart looks to old (like 28, 30 or 36 yo woman with excesive makeup) so i wanted to made them more young and fresh. bcuz they are so young indeed.

I wil be straight; I am not fan of the nowadays Disney with all the cartoons that look the same and the "too happy" endings and such BUT...Frozen had a dynamic. It could have been better but at least it had an element or two in it that were very beautiful and could be better if taken care of.... But when I saw the picture you made I was like "Wow"!

Your semi-realistic concept is amazing and you finally gave personality to the "all-same" 3D cartoons of nowadays Disney cause I can see you made a great job with the analogies of the body, making the two characters have their own unique characteristics. I can see Anna's strong point is her strong collar and shoulders. She looks more "sturdy" than her sister while Elsa's strong point is her very slim yet well-made body with her more "modest" curves and her white skin and hair. Also I really like how her skin is so pale and her hair looks so rich.

Anna looks very beautiful the way she is leaning over the chair and over her sister. I can tell she is younger because of the roundness of her face and the softness of her skin, especially to her collarbone and shoulders. You did very good job at making the light and shadow effect on her skin. I can also tell the softness and the texture of her dress! :clap: You did great job at that, especially the black upper part. I can even feel the velvet of it. Her hair also looks more natural like this, the red of it looks more realistic and the braid and the bun also add more to her character. The golden details and the gem to her neck too. Nice detail that she is also without any make-up but her natural blue eyes show under the red of her hair naturally, without the need of make-up (plus she is younger than her sister so keeping her natural like that can also point out her age) and also the roundness of her nose makes her look both girl and grown woman at the same time (once again it could show how she has started becoming adult but she is still in her late teens).

Elsa looks royal the way she is sitting on her chair with her hands folded in her lap. Indeed she is like a queen but at the same time I see the worry to her eyes as if to remind us what she had been through all those years, as if she is still worried that something might happen. Yes I agree with you that all that make-up in the series was totally unfitting and unneeded but you gave her this discreet and nice make-up with the pink eye shadow that brings up the blue of her eyes and the witeness of her face. The details on her neck are outstanding how you show the skin and the tenonds and the ones of her collarbone. Her white hair looks so rich and beautiful! :heart: I am jealous of her hair here!
One other detail I immediately noticed when I saw your artwork was her dress. I loved the way you designed it. You made it indeed look like made of icicles and snow and crystal, especially her top and her skirt looks like made of ice, with the iridescent details and such! Indeed here you made her lool like the worried youthful girl she was in the movie. If only the movie producers had used your artwork as a reference! ;)

You are right this is the typical portrait like picture and it really suits them! Plus the royal background with the red (color of royalty) and the carpets and the heavy curtains... It brings up Elsa's blue dress and white colors! I have no words!

oh my!... well, i have to say, and i´m sorry guys really, i don´t mean to be rude or something, really!. but i think the excessive make up it´s the big problem, i mean.... it´s easy to draw a heavy black line to make the eyes so big, but all those 3d faces (even 2D) are just a representation of a face, not to take "literally" in order to draw a cartoon. that´s why i felt a year ago when i discovered all of this FanArt world, so many art and cosplay in someway fail in their intention. i really feel you dude, a lot of people thinks all these 3D faces are simple, so rouded and without unique form as ariel or Belle has. guys pleez don´t hate me for say it, i understand why so many loves Anna Faith, i know i know... but the first time i saw her, maybe a year and half ago, i was like HUH?... wait, what?... she is not real Elsa, c´mon!.... okay this girl is awesome, so pretty but hell no... she is not Elsa, just bcuz that gesture, all the make up and on and on, doesn´t mean she could sing "let it go" and give the same impact and convincing feeling.
funny, bcuz i feel the same as you... i didn´t want to see Frozen!, i love the original tale of little mermaid since i was 15,  but i love Disney´s version too. (maybe bcuz i love redheads XD) those eyes so expressive, the Ariel´s personality. all the animation work. i undestand those movies are not the same tragic view of the original tale, i have to admit it, i didn´t saw Pocahontas, hercules, Mulan and i don´t like Lion King or Pinocchio or other Disney´s movies, at the end i love some princesses bcuz i can relate them to the original tale, maybe just the princess character and not the whole movie.
so, when Frozen was released i saw the poster and i though EWW!, bad recreation of the queen of snow. then a friend of mine told me -you have to watch it! c´mon!, u´re going to looooove it, (i did some 3D basic work just for fun, and of course nothing great) and she told me, you´ll understad, see the movie!
well... and i did, i saw Brave and that movie catch my attention in some way, then when i saw Frozen i was... wait wait, this is good!, at some point Elsa and Anna have a convincing personality. not bcuz the faces, but the whole work on their expressions. and then... let it goooo!!....(wait, wait... c´mon guys this is a movie for kids! c´mon!, how do you dare to show such a HOT BABE here?) and the ice castle scene i was like... the hell of rendering hours here!, this is insane! i barely can model an ugly hand, and what in the world is this?.
when their parents died, also i had this feeling of watching a real Hans Christian Andersen tale. man!, that scene was so harsh and cold, i think this is the moment i got that perspective, as you said.... this movie has a different dinamic.
this is why i did this portrait, i wanted to feel this Anna indeed represent Anna, and not just the costume or make up. the same with Elsa. i have to say, at least 10 months i worked on it. most in the faces as u can guess. drawing and redrawing, comparing diferent times of work, taking elements of and old version and on and on and on. of course i see it now and i feel there´s a lot of details i don´t like. could made it better. but i´m so... sooo sooooo glad you noticed all these things!. you´re right about everything, oh boy... your view give me the chills!, really!... Anna stands a little behind giving some importance to Elsa since she is the queen, but her pose it´s more natural. both are saying... now we are okay, we had a hard time before but now everthing it´s almost fine. but we have to discover more of our sistedhood... alas, Elsa indeed has this gesture of... "still i don´t get it, the whole thing of being a queen and be cool with my powers, but posing for this it´s a little fun". 
all of this is tricky no dobt about it... making 3D animation has a lot challenges. sorry about my funny Eng, aHEM!... i´m french but i´m so glad about your post, make my day, and whole week!...
