One of my biggest pet peeves about TPATF is that some of the best aspects of the movie are so under-played or glanced over (not all, but some).  Look at this building!  Really, look at it!  This was digitally painted in the style of Disney’s older traditional films, and it is so beautifully drawn and lit and detailed.  I’m actually kind of sad every time the end of the movie rolls around and we only get to see the outside and inside of this place for a few seconds—wouldn’t it be great to have a whole scene there, like during the scenes with Gaston and the villagers in the Tavern in “Beauty and the Beast”?  (Also, I don’t think I noticed this until now that the restaurant is called “Tiana’s Palace,” not “Tiana’s Place”—another lovely detail)
It also makes me sad that Tiana and Naveen were frogs for about 85-90% of the movie—they’re cute designs, don’t get me wrong, and they always feel in-character to me, but both of their humans designs were SO LOVELY, I wish there was more of them!

Thank you for 301 followers!!!

I just passed 300 followers this week and I thank each and every one of you so much!  I’m happy you guys are enjoying my art and/or liking the reblogs.  I made this blog not just for my art, but to share and appreciate all types of art and animation forms, because it’s a medium that I love and that pretty much makes up my entire life, and I’m glad a bunch of other people seem to like animated movies, cartoon canines, nerdy stuff and nostalgic cheesiness as much as I do.

Thanks for sticking around! :3

thank you 300 followers you're all amazing and inspiring
