Queen of Arendelle by SimonPovey Queen of Arendelle by SimonPovey
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!

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!.

Most attempts to make Elsa look 'Real' seem to fall short of what I envision she would look like outside of an animation studio... but your work comes really, really close.
Honestly, she would have to pop out of my brain to get much closer. As I am not Zeus, however...

What an absolute compliment, i'm completely taken aback by your kind words! :heart:

It was my aim to translate Elsa how I see her in my head as I've yet to fully see a convincing real Elsa. I would be amazed if someone actually reproduced her gorgeous dress to every detail! I've yet to see it though.

Thanks you so much! I'm so happy fellow Elsa fans are loving it!

The amount of detail you put into this is just fabulous, and you even managed to do what so few artists can; you depicted a more realistic version of Elsa that still maintains the general qualities of the character's anatomy and face design.  Well done all around! :+fav:

WOW thank you! I tried to keep as close to animated Elsa as I possibly could, even trying to match make up and freckles, even the mesh fabric on her sleeves! It was allot of work but such an amazing thing to draw, just love everything about her design!

Thank you for making this artist really happy :D
