GREEN LOTUS CRUSH!
I dunno I got requests to draw Tiana and I thought I’m gonna Sailor Moon this shit up cause why the hell not
And the reason everyone love Lottie is because holy hell does she exceed expectations.
Not only is she openly best friends with a colored woman, something downright shocking for their time period, right when you expect her to yell at Tiana for embarassing her and ruining the beignets intended to win over Naveen, she doesn’t. She immediately helps the poor girl in the house, cleans her up, and gives her the prettiest dress she has. Who honestly saw that coming?
And my god, the ending. She’s ready to kiss the frog, and get the prince she’s always wanted, and the moment she finds out Tiana loves him?
She agrees to kiss him so he and Tiana can get married. No strings attached. And she’s crying tears of joy because Tiana finally found her man. She loves Tiana that much.
Lottie is a character who came out of nowhere, is spoiled sweet, and won over everyone in the theater. And she looks damn great doing it.
Also, master of facial expressions!
Well this flu’s finally easing off, thank you all for the lovely messages! Worst thing about flu like this is that with all the shivers and feeling weak it’s really hard to draw so instead I just lied in bed reading The Hobbit again and few other books besides and pondered in my head about what if Princess and the Frog had actually been done as a complete fantasy princess movie like Tangled, Cinderella and so forth and had taken place in some imaginary pseudo-historical kingdom and Tiana had been born a princess to begin with? I went back to the original fairytale and scribbled a little until after a week of not drawing my hand was hurting. It really didn’t take long orz.
Part of me thinks the movie like this would had been so awesome, part of me is paranoid that for every person now complaining about how it’s not ok that Tiana is a waitress we’d have another complaining about something else and I just don’t want to go there, internet and the things people say there scares me sometimes.
