I hardly think that was nesecary.
Watch the entire “Let It Go” scene from Frozen featuring Idina Menzel performing as Elsa.
If you don’t wanna go see Frozen, this is the best 3:39 of the movie (except the short that plays beforehand). What a jam.
goosebumps every time!
Oh god Sarah you are so right
This character is basically Elphaba and Let it Go = No Good Deed
Biggest difference? Idina’s voice does not match this character or it’s expressions.
A voice so strong was not meant for a character so cotton candy soft. ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY DIDN’T MAKE HER EMOTIONAL RANGE LARGE ENOUGH TO MATCH THE INTENSITY OF THE MUSIC??? The song is good, yeah. But the energy in the scene from this character design makes me cringe. It’s fucking Rapunzel trying to sing a song from Wicked fucking fuck what.
This was really lazy, Disney.
Elsa is an Elphaba copy
i think the big problem with the emotional range is the fact that they literally went out of their way to not make her face contort with the emotional waves of the song, because they wanted to make her stay “pretty”. if you watch Idina Menzel sing, well, pretty much anything, but especially her songs from Wicked, she is EMOTING. she is earnestly performing ev-ry sing-le syll-a-ble. she’s not “attractive” when she does it, but that doesn’t matter, because you’re not looking at her for her face, you’re looking for the feeling.
if you watch the video, the song kills, but the disconnect comes from the fact that elsa isn’t emoting. and this goes right along with all the problems of the production. it’s quite obvious the animators don’t care enough, because you have this intense song being sung by this powerhouse of a performer, and they aren’t trying to make the match; it’s all halfhearted.
and elsa, if you ask me, is a poor-man’s elphaba, because she’s not emoting. when i listen to wicked, i respond, because i hear the emotions and i remember seeing how it was performed; i cried during defying gravity because of the performance. when i watch elsa, i can see menzel in my mind’s eye performing it in the recording booth, and the difference between the two is jarring.
toni is always better at saying what I want to say so reblogging again
and you know what? It’s sad when the most emotional part of the song happens when you can’t see the character’s face:
THAT STOMP WAS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF THE WHOLE SCENE WHEN THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN:
SHE IS LIFTING A GODDAMN SHOW PALACE
THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN FUCKING COOL
LOOK AT HER. AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC. AND CRINGE AT THE UNCOMFORTABLE DISPLACEMENT OF IT ALL WITH ME
“when i watch elsa, i can see menzel in my mind’s eye performing it in the recording booth, and the difference between the two is jarring.”
Y E S
((also this was the only song scene in the movie that actually made me feel anything….and now that I see it out of context it’s really mediocre, but compared to everything else, it was amazing and I called it “phenomenal” in my liveblog @_@))
The last shot is particularly guilty. Her weird bedroom eyed sexy face seemed kinda outta place.
Even in Tangled they had a great animator, Glen Keane behind the animation. The 3D animators would animate out a scene, and then Glen would come in sketching and animating over that to show them little quirks to put in. More movement, more emotion, her little jumps and skips and mannerisms. He even drew over the expressions to exaggerate them a bit more. But I have to agree that here, the expressions are not ranged at all and dont match the emotion of the song. I Dont know much of wicked or her performances, but even closing my eyes I can see how they could of pushed the mannerisms and expression a bit more. Fist clenching, wide spread mouth and jaw. More…JOLTING in her actions. SOMETHING. Animating isnt always about pretty things, and I wish I was more excited about this movie…;
I have not seen the film and know little about animation myself, but I wish to say something.
I think I understand what the scene is trying to do. Elsa has had to hide her powers her entire life, dull her emotions so that it didn’t get out of hand and not show her true self. The emotion is thus muted in this aspect, and she is saddened that she had to leave her home. That beginning part as she is just finally understanding that she can do whatever she wants out here on her own is nice.
However after the “Screw you part” of the song, it should have picked up in emotional power. That animation should have show a lot more joy mingled with anger, power and confidence than it did. Her expression is like she is thinking “Look I can do this but I don’t think I am allowed to well maybe just a few more times,” with tentative emotions. However the song is like “Screw you guys I’m going to freeze the sun and no one can stop me!” more power and convidence. The song didn’t match the scene in the latter parts, but in the beginning is did, in my oppinion. It just ramped up really quickly and the expression didn’t follow suit.
The animation could have been better, but I don’t think the movie itself is going to suffer. People will still watch it and love it, and this scene gave me the warm fuzzy Disney feeling so that was nice, despite it being about ice and snow.
As a side note, I showed this scene to my mother and sister and they both really enjoyed it, my mother is nearly sixty and my sister is eleven. Mum asked if that was the “lesbian from the musical about AIDS” I told her it was and that the musical was called RENT.
I don’t understand people on tumblr complaining about only having a week to do an essay or report or whatever that they got a few weeks before they started complaining. Maybe if you actually did it instead of drawing/reblogging smut and swooning over heterosexual anime characters who you think look cute as a gay couple, then maybe you could have finished it by now.
So I know this super awesome chick by the name of Riftmaw/PurpleCarrot who drew a couple of my characters for me, one SFW and one NSFW. So I told her that for every character she draws me I will draw her one as well.And so here is drawing number one of her character Manny, who is showing incredible beach balls going pantsless on the beach.Riftmaw’s DA page can be found here.

Check her out, the style of her work is super awesome. I plan to do some more of this style in the future.
No one cares about me in my family. Seriously NO ONE CARES.
They insult my weight, my sexuality, my life choices. I am suppose to accept it because they’re my family. No, I don’t think so.
My mother calls me lazy, tells me I can’t eat things, yells at me for telling my sister (who is eleven) that she has arms and legs and can make herself a sandwich, my mother is not her slave.
My father calls me fat, insults my life choices, thinks I am lazy because I can’t lift a ten kilo bag of anything. I don’t drive, which seems to be his favourite of things to reference to.
My little sister, the eldest of them, goes out all day and all night and asks me all the time “When are you going to do something with your life?” Oh yes, thats me, the lazy useless artist who has been looking for work for about half a year, who has been trying to find suitable study options. Who got dumped by his boyfriend, not like anyone fucking cared about that did they? Nope, if its about the gay they want no part in it at all.
Oh and my littlest sister, who is currently a victim of bullying at her school, I try to teach her what I did with it (fat and gay and liked pokemon, you do the math) She insults me, orders my mother and myself around like fucking servants, does nothing for herself, sometimes she doesn’t even get dressed in the mornings without my mothers help. She is eleven.
I understand how suicide and eating disorders begin now, I understand. I even contemplated not eating for a day or so, just to see if they notice. They insult their children, and make it the norm. The children become afraid of insults, that if they tell their parents something that bothers them, they are afraid, they cant tell friends or family. They receed into the ball of self laothing and hate, fighting their own demons.
It’s a horrible feeling.
I have seen a lot of posts about feminism, though particularly about WoC saying that white women don’t understand what it is like because they have privilege, being white in a world still very much dominated by white people.
Could you stop that please?
You are turning a post about feminism, about equal rights for women, into something about race. While it is true that women of colour are considered lesser than white women in society, which is wrong, you are still women.
Feminism is about equal rights for women, it doesn’t specify race or religion or sexuality or anything. A feminist believes that women of all shapes and sizes deserve to be treated equally, fairly and humanely.
Hope, from my friends in the works game “Anathema.” I’ve gotten into the habit or writing japanese words/names on my drawings. I dunno why, maybe I saw it on concepts and began to copy it. Ah well.
Kinda a little bit of a practice on a stylised me, I might do a full body of these. Also working on a oneshot comic and thinking about making some short animations, so much to do.
Anywho enjoy, it’s based on my signature colour, aqua-green.
This little guy was inspired by http://barrooreblogs.tumblr.com/ This chap.
He’s a little doggie boy, my first ever fully anthro character design, and also LINELESS OMG.
I am thinking of naming him Fido and having him be friends with my other furry Rex.
How to not be a dick to trans people in two easy steps.
One: Understand the gender identity that person wishes to express and/or be called by.
Two: Use it.
I was just wondering if we could stop refering to cisgender people like myself as being all the same, whenever it comes to someone’s comments of trans or bi-gender or genderqueer etc. people.
Like the politician in Russia who came out as a bisexual trans woman, and then someone who was bisexual themselves didn’t mention her trans-ness, though in all fairness they were refering to her as she and not it, or he, or them. They were using her prefered gender pronoun, and people assumed that they had forgotten or disregarded the trans-ness of the politician in question.
Then apprently, all cisgender people would have behaved the same way, mocking her gender, disregarding it.
I just wonder if we can stop, and show a little humility and kindness.
The sad moment when you realize how alone you actually are. No one ever messages you on Facebook first or texts you first or anything. So it gets to the point where you don’t want to put in the effort with people who don’t put in any effort for you, so you end up spending your life at home, never going anywhere.
reasons i tend to not talk
- people always interrupt me to tell another story because apparently my story isn’t good enough for their ears
- i sound like an idiot who just learned to talk two hours ago
- people seem disinterested in what i’m saying
- i hate my voice
- i have something really mean to say
- i hate you
- i repeat because this happens a lot: people interrupt me and never let me finish and i feel really shitty about myself because no one seems to want to listen to me
