The Women Behind Disney

From Vanity Fair's article, Coloring the Kingdom

I just wanted to share a really insightful podcast a friend sent me today. It's a brief  history of the women artists at Disney and how animation was and still is a male dominated field. (The women doing this podcast are not animators, so it's kind of interesting to hear outsiders discussing this.)

Fairy Sketch, work in progress


I wanted to sketch for fun and this kind of came from nowhere. What a pleasant surprise! It should be an angel, but morphed into a fairy. I may or may not keep this path.
I hope to revisit this later. For now I'll post this sketch. ;)
