The Swan Princess by toon-star The Swan Princess by toon-star
I noticed that DA lacked art from the Swan Princess so I decided to draw it after I found my vhs copy.

I forgot how much I loved this movie-even if it got kinda cheesy at parts I still love it, I always wanted to be odette I thought she was so pretty.

So I drew this up. I got the background from a shot from the movie because I just couldn't get a good background and I didn't want to just put it on a white background. The water around her looks kinda weird but I loved drawing her dress and her hair--hair is so fun to draw. I looked at a lot of pictures of dresses to see how it would fold when she picks it up.

Her face got a big screwed up too-I always get a good body and then screw up by putting the face on. I think I initially drew the picture too small so I didn't have much room on her face so it came out squished. I actually might do more from this so I can practice her face and since I bought the dvd (target- 5$ =) ) I can make more and I already have one sketched of odette and derek as kids- that opening song was the best

My next pic is to finish =BaB-Jane 's commission

Swan Princess Belongs to Rich Animation Studios and Nest Entertainment I believe.

It looks straight out of a scene. It is very pretty! Even with her face different, it is still wonderfully executed.

yes the songs are nice--some of the lyrics are a bit cheesy but they did a wonderful job with the orchestra. the main melody for the movie ( like when Derek tells roger to play a song "like a swan" ) is beautiful.

I just found out courtesy of imdb.com that Howard McGillin was and is the most famous phantom on Phantom of the Opera for broadway, so he has to get that voice from somewhere lol. I think that Liz Callaway did a beautiful job playing Odette's singing voice-it was very pure and sweet =)

YEAH! The music itself is wonderful and the lyrics can be cheesy, but it's a kids movie.

Howard McGillin was a PHENOMENAL Phantom. I had the chance to see him on Broadway and read about him being Derek in the playbill. My respect for his character in The Swan Princess skyrocketed. :D

haha lucky you! yes I think this movie lacks attention probably because it isn't under the big disney title but everyone remembers this movie and I don't know anyone who didn't like it--even the cashier told me she loved the movie when I bought it the other day lol

XD And to think there are really big names in the film...there's the guy who plays the frog (his name escapes me at the moment), and so many more. It would have helped if it had been done under a big company, but it is still amazing for those of us who saw it nonetheless!

That's true I bet Disney wishes odette was under their name but the person who plays jean bob is john Cleese And I've seen him in a few movies

John Cleese! That's right. I couldn't remember his name for the life of me. Disney owns so much, so I'm happy that someone has ownership over the Swan Princess.

Oh yes don't worry about English. I almost don't watch French TV anymore, I only watch English and Amercian shows or movies without subtitles, I don't need them anymore (I have spent my life learning English :aww:). :)

I have seen it! :D

So generally it was nice, but it's not the better movie I have seen (and I saw that there was The Swan Princess 2 and 3, maybe I'll watch them too).

I liked the backgrounds and the colours used, the princess is really pretty, and I looooove the turtle! So cute! :love:

I didn't really liked the animation tough, it wasn't really well made. And the songs weren't that great.
And the Prince's costume is ugly. :XD:
But I love him tough he was funny, such a loser "What else is there?" Roooohhh you idiot!! :XD:

But it was a nice movie in general.

But why on Earth do they call her Odette??? It's a French name, but it's so old-fashion, only grandmothers are called like that nowadays, it sounds so ridiculous for us French! :XD:

Thumbelina was better if I remember well (for the animation). I think I have it on VHS, I'm going to watch it right now!! :D
You should do a Thumbelina fanart. :love:

That's good that you got a chance to watch it. The animation wasn't that bad but I still liked it--it's not Disney that's why I guess. I loved jean bob( the frog) and I don't know why she's named odette but I thought it was such a pretty name.

I wouldn't suggest watching the sequels--it ruins the first one and prince derek just kinda gets more shallow and careless

I really didn't like thumbalina when I was younger-- it was this movie and anastasia that I loved outside Disney that's why I'm working in more art from SP
