The first dress by Arbetta The first dress by Arbetta
This is an homage to Claire Keane, who designed many beautiful dresses for Rapunzel, one of them particularly awesome and magical, which, I believe, has amazed and inspired lots of fans, fanartists and artists :meow: [link]

Seriously, I really like the movie as it is but... sometimes I wonder which kind of visually-astonishing film this would have been with the Rembrandt-darker style, 2D animation and this dress... Can't help it.

Hope you like it :aww:

I agree that the Rembrandt-darker version has an appeal that has my imagination wishing to put to paper what my inner eye sees. This is simply stunning and I thank you for getting to see it.

I'd have to agree with you.
As cute and enjoyable the movie was, I wish it was 2D, better character design, and darker. It was just a little too sugar coated for my tastes.
Your art style complements the dress design beautifully!

Oh I wish they'd gone with this dress and the darker feel as well *sigh* though I do love the film as it is too. Excellent detail on the bodice, btw.

i love this one, but my favorite was the pink skirt with white corset. its more downdressed, like someone who spent their whole life in their bedroom and never bothered to learn that itchy lace was socially acceptable (seriously, who wears lace if they dont need to). and the final purple dress looks too much like a ripoff of the barbie rapunzel version, bleh

I loved the original design of the dress too, it's less distracting than what ended up on film--it makes her look too young. Beautiful work as always, so much warmth.

I have those thoughts on almost every movie, even the non-animated :D How about a traditionally animated Pride and Prejudice or Pirates of the Caribbean? I think I would feel like in heaven xD
Beautiful Rapunzel-drawings as always, I love the graceful poses and the golden shimmering hair <3

I do so love this dress. I sort of wish it had stayed, because it gives her such a golden/renascence air. Plus the colour scheme is gorgeous and compliments her hair nicely. :)

The poses are sweet and I love how you seperated the hair strands. Looks so lovely!

Thank you, I just "stole" the colour scheme from the concept art, but I can't help it, I loved that dress since the first time I saw it and I thought the same as you: it compliments her hair perfectly!
Thanks a lot! :hug:

Thank you, as always! Hey, I've read your journal and it seems you are a bit uninspired... can it be? Don't worry, it happens to all of us, we don't feel confident from time to time, but even those times we sketch and try different things, as Im sure you are doing now. What I can tell you is that you have a great style, you put your heart in every piece and improve each day, don't give up because we need you art here (specially me!) :hug:

So beautiful! Especially the way you grew her hair :heart:

I really miss good old 2D animations :/ I've kinda grown used to all these 3D/computer animated movies but 2D will always have a more ... magical feeling to it

I completely agree with you. Sometimes I think... woah, 3D is amazing... and then I watch some of my old 2D animated movies and I'm like... this is more magical, I can't explain why, it is more charming! Thank you for your comment!

Te has currado bastante el vestido, ¿no? Sobre todo los bordados o lo que sean (que yo de terminología costurera ando justito). Yo cuando quiero dibujar adornos en la ropa me salen cosas informes que sólo quedan medianamente bien si nadie se fija.

Por cierto, ¿se sabe oficialmente por qué cambiaron la película? Cuando vi las primeras imágenes que pusiste (creo que en tu blog) me quedé alucinado, pero en vez de hacer algo nunca visto prefirieron hacer una película más en 3D.

Arbetta Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Lo del cambio se debió al director, que iba a ser un animador de Disney (el de tu adorada sirenita, la Bestia, Aladín, etc.etc.) que tenía planes para hacer una peli "claroscura" en 2D y que fue reemplazado por dos directores más modernos... Todo es por el dinero y demás... aunque también hay cuestiones artísticas: la escena de los faroles en 3D es impresionante y el pelo da más de sí ahora (inventaron un nuevo programa para hacerlo). Jo, qué friki soy. Lo de los vestidos es que me encanta! (zoy muy girlygirly para eso jojojo... digo jijijiji...) Pero cuando hagamos la quedada te enseño algunos trucos, sobre todo con texturas (que casi no uso, pero siempre ayudan!)
ACTUALIZAAAAAA, SUBE ALGO!!!! :P Beeeeeeeh! Dónde están esos elfos???

¡Estoy en ello en este mismo momento! Me he tirado una hora para dibujar una antorcha medio decente, con un brazo que la sostenga a juego, y justo ahora me acabo de acordar de que la escena que estoy dibujando transcurre de día. ^_^U

(Ya que me metes prisa, puede que lo suba a lápiz independientemente de que luego lo pase a tinta y lo coloree)

Y lo de la peli, sí, en 3D harían cosas que en 2D no podían hacer, pero... No sé, en unos cuantos años la tecnología habrá seguido avanzando y a lo mejor esas cosas ya no llaman tanto la atención, mientras que lo del claroscuro no va a perder su efecto ahora si no lo ha perdido en los últimos 350 años. Jo.

Ooohhh This dress is so pretty!
Love the colours in it.

It definitely would be interesting to see what the film would have been like in 2D instead of 3D.
I know there's some pics, but....
& of course, with this dress~
