Some of Claire Keane’s concept art for Tangled. I love the tenebrism reminiscent of Caravaggio. Also the strong jaws in some of them remind me of Rossetti of the Pre-Raphaelites. Yummy stuff. I feel like if they had gone this way, we would have had a much darker but even more gorgeous film. 

I also like her costume ideas a lot more than what ended up in the film. 

It’s always painful to look at concept art and realize just how disappointing the final product actually is, and this the case with nearly all of Disney’s work.  A lot of it unfortunately comes down to the fact that the people at Disney care too much about what the public thinks; they care too much about pleasing everyone, and so they never actually take risks or do anything that’s truly different— they haven’t since Walt’s death.  According to those who knew him, Walt always asked “What do kids want to see?”  He never asked “What do parents want their kids to see?” and that’s something the company has seriously forgotten.  It’s a shame because they have so many gifted artists working for them and all that talent is being wasted on mediocre, unambitious, “safe” projects.

I reallyreally love “Tangled” and the way it looks BUT those concept arts are too wonderful to not reblog. I mean… agh! SDFSDF!

Wow I can’t see these too well on my phone but wow what I can see looks gorgeous
