Disney's Princess Academy Production Storyboard 01 by davidkawena Disney's Princess Academy Production Storyboard 01 by davidkawena
Here is another images from our "Princess Academy" project. This storyboard frame is one of my favourites as it challenged me to draw outside of my comfort zone. Plus, it was a pleasure drawing Madame Adelaide - a character usually forgotten by Disney and it's fans. Even though it is only a storyboard frame it was my goal to try and keep the characters on model and as recognisable as possible out respect to their original designers and animators.

"Disney's Princess Academy" is a deleted project that was conceived for Disney a few years ago as a hand drawn animated short. The short was written and directed by Olivier Ciappa and storyboards and concept art was done by me. Original music/song was written by Alan Menken. Unfortunately it didn't saw the light of day, but I am proud to share this first concept art of it with all of you. 

For more details about 'Disney's Princess Academy" and a HQ version of this drawings please visit my page:

More from this project to come soon!
Have a great day everyone

Some of my favourite animal characters in one image. Beautiful. I only wish Oliver and Dodger had been included, though I can see it's because you included only Disney females in this image that they weren't included, which is definitely not a bad thing. I especially love Lady Adelaide, and of course Jenny, another oft-forgotten Disney heroine. My favourite of this piece, though, has to be Duchess and Marie. So cute, and it makes me want to watch the film, something I haven't done in a long while. :)

"Do mi do mi do so mi do
Every truly cultured music student knows
You must learn your scales and your arpeggios
Bring the music ringing from your chest
And not your nose
While you sing your scales and your arpeggios"

3D is good and all...but I seriously starting to hate it if this wonderful and one of a kind short was discontinued because of 3D.
Plus, EVERYTHING is coming out in 3D now. Give it a rest

So I take it that this was turned into Sofia the First? If it is, it's a shame- I would have preferred a 2D hand drawn princess show. :(

I love the characters for this. You don't really see them in a lot fanart so it's nice to see them all together.
