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 storyboarded 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. 

More from this project to come soon!
Have a great day everyone
:heart: DK.

This is a crossover explosion! But you depicted everyone in the artwork so perfectly. I'd love to see how this would all play out were it an actual scene. I'm sorry the project got shelved, 'cause this is really so beautifully done.

I'm sorry your project got shelved.  On the other hand, who would have voiced Duchess?

Great job on the drawing.

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. :)

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 this!! I so miss the classic 2D animation... I don't really know how 3D got so big, but it's just not as visual stunning to me as 2D. And I first when i saw this I was like "Why is Cinderella's evil Step-mom here?!" lol but then I was like "Oh wait." Hahaha! It was the hair and dress, but then I saw it was the one and only Aristocats protagonist! Very nice sir! :)

My brain just broke. In a good way. =D

I have a feeling Madame Adelaide and Jenny would get along well, if they lived in the same time period.

Oh, this is gorgeous love:) I can just hear all of them singing together...:meow: I truly do miss seeing 2D drawn works; not that CGI doesn't have it's place, but it just can't give off the same feeling as 2D animation can. Each has its own unique character.... ah well, eh?
darknightskies Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Student Digital Artist
YES! More 2D animation please! Love this picture
Espeakus Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012
I am so unbelievably proud of this project and can not WAIT to see it in full swing. Hopefully people will demand more 2D works after this! WE NEED THEM.

I remember her well! I am actually EAGERLY awaiting my copy of The Aristocats from the Disney Movie club at this time. It was an all time favorite movie for me as a child and I can't wait to share it with my son. Gorgeous work, it really it! I still hold a very dear place in my heart for all of the hand drawn movies Disney has put out and I believe they need to continue them, there's so much more heart that has to go into these movies.
