Queen of Arendelle

So finally caved in a done some Frozen artwork guys! I couldn't resist anymore :heart:

Following the amount of gorgeous animated fanart of Elsa I thought I'd approach a more realistic portrayal of the fabulous ice Queen.

This was a massive undertaking with an attention to detail I've never executed before; with intense study of Elsa's costume and lighting. Following a non-stop last few days I'm incredibly proud of the final result!

As always your comments and feedback is appreciated!

That is such an atmospheric and detailed artwork that captures her spirit in a strong way *_*

I want to ask in a humble way, if I could
1. set the colors on black and white / or maybe there is a line art which I am allowed to use
2. print it and
3 (re)color it (with credit to the artist) to learn more and led me lead by the atmosphere of your artwork and the characters/scenery. This means: No commercial use, just uploading it to my 'gallery' with credit to you and linking to the original artwork .

You can find examples in my 'gallery'

You made Elsa incredibly sexy, 'canon'-like, and imply a hint of 'Dark Elsa' in this piece. xD Very great! Please keep it up! I'm frozen in place how awesome this is xD

This image is just beyond fantastic, not only the use of colors, shapes and the details of the dress, but the humanized proportions and the overall real life concept is top notch, it really does fit Elsa as it is more a fitting of her traits to the human model rather than just adjusting sizes. It is consistent with other real life concepts of Elsa, making it pretty awesome. Great job!.

Wow thank you! I feel so honored for such comparisons! I just love Elsa and wanted to portrayal her as accurate as my skills allowed! haha So overwhelmed what a beautiful response this piece has had :heart:

Wow! Did you use a photo reference of someone to do this? It looks great! Congratulations on such a wonderful piece of art.:) 
SimonPovey's avatar
I didn't actually! Could have done with it lol although I spent ages drawing my own hands! I do hate drawing hands 😝Although I studied the film intently for colouring and lighting :) thanks for the lovely words!
