Sleeping Beauty


Well, this turned out to be a bigger challenge than I had anticipated. The model was fantastic, but the costume was...not so hot. I put between 30 and 40 hours of work into this, which seems to be the norm for these Disney character projects. This is my fourth princess, following Jasmine, Snow White, and Pocahontas. I think Belle will be next.
So, as I mentioned, the model was great, and I think it was a perfect casting choice. I really didn't have to change her face at all. And I was especially surprised to find out that the model's name....was PRINCESS! (No, I'm not kidding.)

Dead ringer. Nice violet treatment of the eyes too. I love that she's standing on the stone. Gives a nice nod to the Earle style of the film. Now hurry and replace those damn rocks with some nice wood-flooring!!
