LeanMarie Art

My name's Lea Redding, I am studying animation at Minneapolis College of Art and Design, I am learning animation slowly but surely. I also do digital illustration and lots of doodles and sketches. enjoy my blog!

sooo, I did my first commission this summer, got $40 for it whoo! I did an illustration of this marionette dude, and my aunt who let me in on this thing did the graphic design using this illustration for an album cover. 

ok, so…. a while ago someone did this awesome recording of a kind of head-canon for Anna on her wedding day, and I decided to make an animatic :3 I will do a full animation eventually, I will be doing key frames during my winter break from school. but….. yeah….. it was super fun xD some things I might tweak, if you guys have any suggestions on what I can add or change please let me know!

the characters Anna and Elsa belong to Disney

and the audio belongs to aihara-tenshi

illustrations that I used as a template belong to dearchemistry

soooooo…. I did fanfiction fanart…. haha xD it’s the amazing bri-ecrit’s b-day (if you don’t know her that’s fine…. most folk in the Frozen fandom know her xD she does awesome-tastic fanfiction) and she has been writing this AMAZING multi-chap fic called Dark as Snow, it’s an AU based off of a book called Bloody Chambers…. which I’ve never read, but the fic is really great and creepy and super captivating. 
this is from the scene where anna makes Kristoff agree to be her friend. best.

so my High School orchestra teacher Miss B is retiring this year, and it’s really bitter sweet, she was my favorite teacher all through high school and it was my favorite class all four years. she taught me so much more than music theory and how to tune and play my violin. it’s because of her and that class that I love classical orchestral music, and literally jump in my seat when I hear a song or suite that I love. 
but the most important thing she taught me and my fellow orch dorks, was to play “with fire in the heart, and ice on the brain” that has stayed with me for these past 4 years, and I try to apply it to every aspect of my life.
so as an ode to Miss B, I did this loverly drawing of…. myself? I guess. I was going to draw Miss B but that proved more difficult than previously thought >.>
so, goodbye to my orchestra teacher, I hope to stay in touch with her, and I really hope that the school will find someone to fill those huge shoes.

WIP!!!! haha, frozen fanart based off of classical art tee hee, there was a post that someone made about how they’d love to see Anna as Judith from Gentileschi’s “Judith Slaying Holofernes” and I just love the idea! obviously Anna as Judith, elsa will be her trusty handmaiden, and Hans is Holofernes :D it’s just such a wonderful idea, i hope to get around to finishing it.

gotta post before the day ends!
today’s prompt was “self conscious” sooooo I did dis :3 
one of the things I liked about Anna the most was that she felt invisible, I mean it was relatable to me, so I kinda pictured her just feeling like that as a teenager when maybe her parents didn’t have time to spend with her and her sister was obviously kept away from her. 
so she’s self conscious about her worth? or her importance, because how important is someone who’s invisible?

it’s anna week! in appreciation for this cutie pie!
took me three tries to get it right *whew*
I do love anna, and she is underappreciated, people just write her off as “annoying and boring” when she’s actually a very deep character. she’s just super optimistic so people are like “oh yeah whatever :P” lame butts. and she’s so gosh darn pretty! like hella pretty.
anyway, gotta love anna, she reminds me of my sister, and my self here and there ;)
