Gouache Painting of Rapunzel and Flynn during the Light scene. This painting was done for Disney Fine art, and will be available through them!
I had a lot of fun revisiting the characters from the golden book, and this moment was one of my favorites. My dad loved it so much he kept insisting that we get lanterns for our wedding last year. It took a while to explain that the fire marshals would not be pleased.
I got to meet Glen Keane last week at First 10+ exhibit at the GRworks gallery. He’s a super nice guy, we chatted a bit and he drew everyone there a sketch. I brought my Art of Tangled book and he signed and doodled Rapunzel for me :)
This Corona map and corresponding concept art show three things that were in a previous draft of “Tangled” but never made it into the original film:
(1) A gondola ride though the village canal
(2) Rapunzel meeting Gothel at the Lost Princess memorial
(3) A wedding at the castle cathedral
You know what my favorite part of the piece on the bottom is?
The turtle with the candle on ‘im.
