For all the fans and the artists who loves disney and his princesses!

At the convention they had the individual artworks for sale, so if you really like something you see in the book you can probably get it.

As a fan of Disney art, I pre-ordered this book not knowing much about it. I was extremely happy with what is inside. This book isn't artwork from the production of films the involve Disney Princesses. Instead it is a book of various artist's interpretations of their favorite Disney Princesses. It is incredibly creative. Flipping through the pages is like taking a stroll through a Disney art museum. I've had the book for a few weeks now and I keep flipping through it because it's so wonderful. I highly recommend it.

This book is more on fan art than concept art. That said, you won't see any sketches from original Disney artists. The illustrations of princess are based on the artists' interpretation. I don't recognise the names of any artists other than Glen Keane, who wrote the introduction.

The princesses included are Snow White, Tiger Lily, Belle, Ariel, Pocahontas, Mulan, Aurora, Jasmine, Cinderella and even the newest Princess Tiana from The Princess and the Frog.

The variety of style is great. There's art created from acrylic, collages, gouche, water colour, digital and there are even handmade dolls and photographs. What I didn't like is the quality of the illustrations, which can be quite varied, depending on the skill level of the artist contributing. Remember after all, this is sort of a fan art book, although I have seen better fan art books.

While some are beautifully drawn, there's not one that truly stands out. Most of the pieces stay on the wholesome track, although someone did try to break out of the box with Snow White in a futuristic skin-tight outfit. There's another one, which I think didn't work well, had Snow White fixed onto a deer's body much like a Centaur. The idea might not be bad but the technical execution (which should not be mistaken as style) could be better, which happens some other pieces. I also realised that manga style chibi eyes don't work well on princesses, or maybe because it's not done right (by a Japanese artist).

The ones I like are the ones which stayed true to the original designs but done in a different style. There are two artists Dan Beltran and Eric Tan who created simple vector illustrations with nice compositions.

This book could be so much better if the selection is stricter.

as a great admirer of walt disney, i drink up the books relating to the art (and anything else) of his films. that being said, this book was AMAZING! i can not say enough about how much i enjoyed the various art renderings of the princesses we all know and love. many of the images in this compilation are frame-worthy.

in fact, just writing about it makes me want to go look at it again...so i think i'm going to!

wonderful book if you love disney, and equally wonderful book if you love art!

I saw this book before it came out at the D23 Disney Expo and received it as a birthday gift a few days after it was released.

The moment I saw it at the expo I knew I had to own it. I'm not too keen on the cover art (it might actually be my least favorite), but the other pieces inside are amazing. I love every different artist's take on the princesses, and was pleased with some of them that nodded to other well-known artists (like some of the princesses drawn in the Art Nouveau style of Alphonse Mucha and a portrait of Belle that resembles Francois Boucher's Rococo painting of Madame de Pompadour).

As an art student I have frequently visited this book for inspiration on different styles, media, and techniques.
There are several pages in my copy that have permanent place holders in them (like my favorite, the Mucha-esque Snow White) that I like to use as references for some of my art projects for school.

If you don't mind giving the artist some creative license to make their own interpretations (Some classic Disney fanatics may not like some of the more outrageous sci-fi/contemporary takes on them; even though I consider myself one of said fanatics, and I don't mind as long as people don't "sex" them up) you're sure to enjoy looking through the pages of different images of some of the most beloved Disney characters.

This book is a beautiful compilation of a large array of different artists and their take on one of the Disney Princesses. This book is packed with so many different art styles and images, it's hard not to find something to love in there. This is something every Disney Fan and/or Artist should have on their shelf.

A Princess is more then just a pretty face, she is as brave as a lion, as clever as a fox, and as pure as snow. A Princess is all heart and loves unconditionally and is loved so in return. Many thousands of little girls around the world have grown up with the wish to become a princess. But being a Princess is not just having a gown, crown and castle, it is every little girl who has ever made a wish and believes in magic.

Disney has been creating Princess since 1937 when the very first Princess, Snow White, was introduced to the world. Since then many other Princess have been imagined and re-imagined by Disney, all with their own story and all as unique as the girl wishing to be them. However different each Princess is the one thing all Disney Princess have in common is the ability to capture our imaginations as well as our hearts.

The Art Of The Disney Princess brings together a number of Disney artists in order to celebrate the magical, virtuous and daring heroine that is the Disney Princess. From the iconic Snow White and Cinderella to the new Princess Tiana, the elusive Tiger Lily and even Maleficent, who manages to make an appearance or two.

All the well know and loved princess are presented within this outstanding collection of beautiful and unique images, and with this book you can be a part of the magic. As every Princesses is unique so too is every piece of artwork captivated within this book. A stunning collection to treasure.
