Cinderella 2, "Dreams Come True?"

OK, I haven't always gotten to work on really cool projects like "Foster's" or "Danny Phantom." Sometimes you gotta pay the bills and work on a project that you don't have as much enthusiasm for. Such was the case on Cinderella 2. Being assigned the task of re-designing a classic character like Anastasia so as to make her look more "attractive" was fairly reprehensible, but I tried to do the best I could, mainly cause I was working with some really cool and talented artists. The story had something to do with her finding her "inner-beauty" so of course she needed to look hot, (or hot-er) on the outside, right??? Ugh. Anyhow, here's some drawings of her attempting to smile which she only finally succeeds in doing when she falls in love. I also threw in a model sheet of a palace cat named "Pom Pom" that had an affair with Lucifer. I made some great friends and learned a lot from some very talented artists at Disney TV, and although I'm glad we won't see more of these stupid ideas, (at least as video sequels,) I'm hoping that there will be some original direct to video content that showcases the great talent working there in a better fashion.

Fantastic drawings! So full of life! Sounds like a nice experience.

These drawings rock as hard as deathmetal....well, you know what I mean. The expressions on what looks like Cinderella's evil sisters are the best, especially the one forcing a smile on the lower left.

The shapes you have down for the cats possess that squash-and-stretch feel.

Once again, your work takes the cake!

Sorry you got stuck on the Cin 2 'clip movie' ;)
But always nice to find another Disneytoon artist who did their best with what we had.
I really enjoyed working on Cin 3, myself.
Pompom is wonderful :)

I really like those curls on the kitty. The whisker curls and the curl on the tail, they make her that much more interesting.

Cool character and great posing. Makes me wish I knew how to pose characters better! truly inspirational. =)
