Disney University - Esmeralda by Hyung86 Disney University - Esmeralda by Hyung86
I'll try to make Disney/Pixar characters in young and stylish concepts, some kind of "students", something like the new Pixar's Movie: Monster University.

Esmeralda has been dancing since she was little. She loves ballet and exotic dances. She love mixing dance styles and for this, usually train with Aladdin (B-Boy)
(sound familiar? Ballerina+b-boy ... Step Up XD)

Hope you like it!


Thank you very much for the comments!

I have modified a few things in the picture. I've drawn a longer neck, smaller feet and more stylized figure (not so SD)

I think the biggest problem is the hair just because she have a lot of... ¿gypsy hair? XD

Will you do one of Clopin,too? Please do. Such a talented fellow ought to take part in this series. He could be a drama teacher or something like that.

It fits, so freaking well.
Valorista23 Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I thought she would at least do a bit of fortune telling and palm reading on the side

In my Disney University fanfic, Esmeralda is Belle's rival.

actually she could have the same religion/lifestyle in this situation
(the college concept) you see Gypsy' is still a lifestyle in the 20th century just not very well known there are MANY ways this concept would work!

octone-berri Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Awesome, I love this movie. Can you make one of Clopin? I'd really like to see your take on that :D
cheylouwho Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2013
Very neat design. Just a tip for the future, pointe shoe ribbons only goes up to the ankle. Common misconception though :D
ElectraDragon Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I adore Esmeralda so much!  And not to be picky- but well, I am.  I was a ballerina for 9 years, and pointe shoes are only laced at the ankle.  This is to help assist the ankle since going on pointe can be dangerous (if not done properly) and the laces keep the ankles relatively stable so injury is less likely.  Other than that I ADORE THIS!!  :iconrainbowsqueeplz:

MonToothComics Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
these characters are severely realistic... its overbearing.. :drained: 
Aquakittyx Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Please do me a favor and respect her artwork please. In my opinion, all these drawings are absolutely GORGEOUS. They are farther from realistic than a cell phone is from being deodorant. :/
MonToothComics Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
seriously? the anatomy is so realistic i even doubt she drew these without a reference or even more likely she traced over a picture of a actual person... think about it... these characters have none of the Disney curve like features, big eye, hands and feet... in fact the hands and feet and extremely small *like the real ones.
journalingarcher Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Why does it matter if they are realistic? I personally find drawings that are more lifelike much more beautiful than just animated drawings. These are her interpretations not yours.
MonToothComics Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
see but once it gets that realistic... making it into a drawing is meaningless... art is supposed to abstract... especially animation
Soragirl6 Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2013
There are three types of art: Representational, Abstract, and non-representational. This is a more representational form of art. It mixes fantasy with reality, rather than giving some generic image of college. This is how college REALLY is. And it puts the Disney characters in a real life setting. Its genius honestly.

Abstract form of art would be art that has form but no definite identity. Non representational means it has no form nor identity. It can be a bunch of colors mixed together. Its still art, just not meant to represent anything in particular.
journalingarcher Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's not true for all forms though. I believe art is for the artist's eye. It's based off of what they are looking for, not the viewer.
Babbity99 Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
You realize, now you have to make Quasimodo and Phoebus, Right? I love these!

¿Phebo, when? Great your Disney University artwork!!!!!!!!!!!!
chaansan Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I think that her legs and hair are off... really off.
HappyLittleJen Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2013  Student Digital Artist
she's missing the scarf in her hair, I think that's what makes her hair look off
Lubie-Lu Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013  Student Digital Artist
her legs.. they bother me.. besides that, great job!
lovelyjuliexo Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2013  Student General Artist

yay a dancer! Although from experience the pointe shoes are a little weird (ribbons don't usually go beyond your ankles). But still a great series!
