The amount of work that went into this photo was immense, to say the least. This is certainly the most prep work, planning, and labor I’ve spent on a single image to date. I’ll have a blog post up soon, detailing the work and providing behind the scenes images and even discussing the development of this character a bit. Everything worn by the model was handmade and designed by me.  Huge thanks to all involved, but especially to Austin, who took on the tedious task of hand sewing each and every pinecone to the headdress, as well as offering aid on set.]

Princesses can be so picky about frog lips.

The “Assassination of our youth” line is my favorite.

Also included are some of the actual posters that acted as inspiration!

David Gilson is a French Artist. In 2007, over being excited for Disney’s Black Princess, he created a plethora of wonderful artwork in anticipation. 

Many of them created during earliest production in which the film was then titled The Frog Princess and the heroine was named Maddy the chambermaid. These works since have been passed around as if they were conceptual artwork during production. In part for being well done and existing a year prior to any real art released to the press and public. 

As The Princess and The Frog hops towards five years since theatrical release, it it time to identify these great works of art as they are, fan art.

The right column showcases the beautiful pieces by Disney Artists. David Gilson’s fan artwork is used often when talking about natural hair for Tiana. Lorelay Bové, Sue Nichols, Chris Appelhans, Armand Baltazar and Kevin Gollaher have drawn natural hair in their concept art and unfortunately that aspect did not make it to realization.

David was contracted by Disney Publishing and Disney Consumer Products for Tangled in 2010. Hey, who knows maybe all the attention to his Tiana art landed him the job. We wish him the best in all his artistic endeavors!
