Book Report – The Art of Tangled

If you’re a fan of Disney’s animated films and their art style I’ve got a book for you. The art of Disney’s Tangled is a beautiful book full of character designs, set designs and storyboards. If you were to walk into my office this book would be on my table for inspiration.

You can’t beat character designs by Glen Keane and a host of amazing other artists like Victoria ying, Claire Keane and Jin Kim. There are pages and pages of sketches of expressive characters like Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, Maximus, and Mother Gothel.

Disney’s signature look is cover to cover in this 160-page hardcover book. With this being Disney’s 50th animated feature the artists went back to the past to get their inspiration. From Sleeping Beauty to Cindarella you can read the artist interviews about why they went back and made certain environment art choices helping to tie this story to the past while giving it an updated feel. The artists even got their inspiration from Disney’s theme parks.

I can’t recommend this book more. This book is an amazing reference for anyone who enjoys beautiful art work. Pick up the book here.
