Disney Heroes - Prince Hans by davidkawena Disney Heroes - Prince Hans by davidkawena

Disney Heroes - Prince Hans

When the time came to start working on the portrait of Hans I was facing two issues. One, is Hans really a hero? Two, his design.

Anyone of my closest friends and anyone who knows me, know how much I loved the design of prince Hans. Much like Kristoff, I think the artists in Disney managed to brake the mold of the handsome guy much like they've done with previous heroes such as Aladdin and Tarzan. But with Hans, his facial features and body proportions took my by surprise.
His broad, yet somewhat curved shoulders represent a great contrast to the rest of his body which is more lean and long. I chose to present Hans in sort of a 'royal portrait' type, much like the drawings you see in actual palaces. I wanted to show his beautiful profile, lit and shiny, but at the same time, we see his back, he cant hide it from us, hide his true identity and this is where his dark side appears.

The background he stands in is what I imagined to be his own palace, before coming Arendale. It is regal and beautiful, but the light that shins on it only shines half way through and leaves a lot more of that regal beauty in the dark, much like Hans' childhood, as he explains in the movie - being the youngest of 12 brothers who never really paid attention to him.

I felt somewhat sad for Hans when I knew his story line almost a year before the film was released. He seemed to be more of a product of his environment then an actual evil guy.
That allowed me to feel more comfortable in adding him to the collection.

Plus, as Anna so well put it, he is just 'gorgeous'.

That is why Hans is soon to get his 2nd front portrait, a full body one, head to toe which I hope to finish very soon.

Wonderful work as always. I love the shoulder tassel things. The freckles are perfect. In fact his face is perfectly made. It looks like the original animation yet realistic here. You've interpreted him brilliantly, even the texture of the skin and hair and muscles. And of course the whole pose is gorgeous. He's deliciously sexy and I could stare at him all day long. His ass I guess could be more rounded but that's probably just personal preference. Anyways, absolutely great work! Thanks for your pictures! Please please please do keep at it! I'm a very big fan of yours!

Amazing use of light and shade (as always!) which really helps to enhance Prince Hans' character, and emphasise his depth. Your use of colour is beautiful, particularly the contrasting golds and reds, which work to bring details like hair and freckles to the fore. Your treatment of the human figure is particularly alluring, creating a physique with both amazingly realistic muscle areas etc., whilst retaining an air of practically unattainable perfection! A magnificent piece of work, which Anna herself would most definitely have eloquently described as being 'gorgeous'! Cannot wait to see what else you have in store for Hans!

I know they are not strictly Disney but Miguel and Tulo from The Road to El Dorado would look amazing in just their underwear...

I agree - he was more a product of his environment.  If he had been more patient, perhaps he'd have been different.  In any case - this is just gorgeous art!  Love it!

Really wow, just wow. This and your Jim Hawkins are my favourites now!

I know this one isn't Disney and you may get loads of annoying requests for him but can you please do Jack Frost? He's a hero at least and just like you did with Peter Pan, you can bring out his mischievous side. :)

The muscles in his back are beautifully drawn. I think we should get more sexy evil Princes.
