Book Description

28 July 2011
Every little girl has a favorite Disney Princess--and for that matter, every grown-up girl, too! In The Art of the Disney Princess, Disney artists, designers, illustrators, and animators from around the world have re-imagined their favorite princesses and portrayed them in a variety of mediums. Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Jasmine, Snow White, and Cinderella are newly incarnated in water color, pastel, oil paint, colored pencil, mixed media, and computer graphics pieces that range from the traditional to the unconventional. This artwork has been created especially for this museum-quality book, which is sure to delight art lovers, Disney collectors, and any prince or princess who ever believed that fairytales do come true.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fan art book essentially 12 Jan 2010
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Length: 0:30 Mins
This book is more on fan art than concept art. That said, you won't see any sketches from original Disney artists. The illustrations of princess are based on the artists' interpretation. I don't recognise the names of any artists other than Glen Keane, who wrote the introduction.

The princesses included are Snow White, Tiger Lily, Belle, Ariel, Pocahontas, Mulan, Aurora, Jasmine, Cinderella and even the newest Princess Tiana from The Princess and the Frog.

The variety of style is great. There's art created from acrylic, collages, gouche, water colour, digital and there are even handmade dolls and photographs. What I didn't like is the quality of the illustrations, which can be quite varied, depending on the skill level of the artist contributing. Remember after all, this is sort of a fan art book, although I have seen better fan art books.

While some are beautifully drawn, there's not one that truly stands out. Most of the pieces stay on the wholesome track, although someone did try to break out of the box with Snow White in a futuristic skin-tight outfit. There's another one, which I think didn't work well, had Snow White fixed onto a deer's body much like a Centaur. The idea might not be bad but the technical execution (which should not be mistaken as style) could be better, which happens some other pieces. I also realised that manga style chibi eyes don't work well on princesses, or maybe because it's not done right (by a Japanese artist).

The ones I like are the ones which stayed true to the original designs but done in a different style. There are two artists Dan Beltran and Eric Tan who created simple vector illustrations with nice compositions.

This book could be so much better if the selection is stricter.

2.0 out of 5 stars Average book of average fan art. 16 Dec 2011
By steph87
Format:Hardcover
This book is all fan art and I enjoy looking at an artists own interpretations of characters. This book however was a collection of some very average pictures. Dont get me wrong there were some beautiful drawings in the book but most of it was pretty average with some of the drawing skill being pretty poor and not what you'd expect to find in a book you actually have to pay for. You can view much better original fan art on the Internet for free!

Also the book itself isn't presented as well as it could be. Some artists have a number of images, often in a series, in the book on separate pages. However there would only be 2 or 3 pictures from the same series shown and they were on different pages so it makes it difficult to view them together. It would have been better to have a double page spread of one artist and if they have images in a series (i.e a number of princesses) then show them in a nice way as a lot of the pages were wasted with one image (sometimes a small one) and the book doesn't have that many pages. All in all rather disappointing and not worth 20 pounds.
