I know I’m not alone in thinking Wall-E and EVE are one of Disney’s greatest love stories. Somehow we can all identify with robots because of that film. Here’s another great pair of custom painted shoes from artist Taylor Litonjua on etsy:
What better combination is there than Disney princesses AND cupcakes? Throw jewelry into the mix and you’re all set! I found these adorable fan-made creations on etsy from KTJennuary. The seller has them as a set or individual purchase – check them out:
There are quite a few custom-painted shoes out there, but I thought these were particularly well done. Check out the artist Taylor Litonjua on etsy:
While we all like to try our hand at drawing a Disney classic like Mickey Mouse or other favorite character, every now and then I stumble across some “fan art” which really elevates that moniker to a new level. This video is perhaps the greatest of all I have seen. I’ve been chatting back and forth with Morgan Ditta on twitter and seen her talk about doing live drawings on uStream but I hadn’t seen her work personally until last night. When I watched this video, I knew instantly I wanted to share it with as many people as possible. Thankfully, Morgan gave me the okay to share it here with you folks, and hopefully you will in turn pass it along to even more people. She’s already gotten over 30,000 views on YouTube!
Morgan is a recent grad of Montclair State, with an Animation/Illustration major. She’s been obsessed with Disney for most of her life and has been influenced artistically by it for years. She is quite fond of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit because he has actually proven himself to be a ‘good luck’ charm for her on several occasions. Without further ado, please enjoy Oswald’s Story:
Wasn’t that beautiful? The music really imbues the story with emotion as well. If you liked this, leave Morgan a comment here, follow her on twitter at @SillyWhims and check out her online portfolio of work here. You can also follow along her spectacular senior project – Project D40, which showcases 6 parade floats and 28 costumes she created herself, to celebrate Walt Disney World’s 40th Anniversary. Simply stunning! Just as this video is a must-watch, so is Morgan Ditta. I cannot wait to see where the future takes her!
My friend and fellow Disney fan sent me this image and I knew I had to share it here. I love coming across incredible fan-art like this which shows the effect Mr. Disney has had on people far and wide, decades after his passing.
I’d love to see this done with other non-Princess characters too, say some of the original animators or Imagineers? Endless possibilities. Head over to this talented fan’s flickr page to see more of his work. He’s done some super fun things with Photoshop and park characters. Enjoy!
One artist, Claire Hummel has taken it upon herself to answer this question. She shares her creations at her Tumblr blog and her DeviantArt page. Claire has been sharing these visions since March of this year and according to her FAQ, plans to continue giving more Disney characters a fashionistically (yes, I just made that word up) accurate twist. I encourage you to visit her blog and seek out each original posting, as she goes into detail about the process behind her decisions for each look as well as sharing some videos of the process. In the meantime, I thought I’d post all of the current princesses she has shared to date – EDITED to add – she has now added Mulan, Tiana, and Rapunzel, which I’ve updated below. Check out her links above for more info and to purchase prints! (click to enlarge)
What are your thoughts? Which is your favorite? Which character would you like to see represented next?
