Disney Princess Fever

So this week gone my current obsession is turning disney princesses into text. It’s sounds strange and is actually a lot less difficult than I originally image but still a very slow process none the less.

The first step was of course to choose a song that fit the princess. There’s always at least three songs from any Disney Princess movie that will get any Disney fan singing. My first choice was to do Ariel since a friend of mine loves her and she looked the easiest to do. With so much red hair and her green tale, it made for an easier project start. The original photo (below) was my template.

After outlining the photo, filling it, converting it to the proper format and deciding on the song (Part of Your World) it was time to get to work. Aligning words seems simple enough but it actually isn’t. That bit of annoyance though, is what’s makes it so much fun for me. It took about an hour to turn the above colored picture into the below photo. Getting the text to fit where i wanted and giving as much detail to the silhouette took the longest but my little mermaid soundtrack playing in the background helped.

A black and white version of one of Disney more excitable princesses isn’t very fun to look at though. Who would want to hang something so boring on their wall. The final project though is something I’m very proud of and has a spot in my house already picked out.
