Elsa and Anna Graveside by nasubionna Elsa and Anna Graveside by nasubionna
I love Anna and Elsa's parents.  Yes, they made some huge mistakes in how they dealt with Elsa's powers, but they were human, and we all make mistakes.  Sometimes we hurt the ones we love terribly, when all we want is to protect them.  I feel so much compassion for the King, the Queen, and their daughters.

I like to imagine that Anna and Elsa forgive their parents, and work towards healing the hurt that scarred their lives for so long.  I also like the idea that now that Elsa is free, she can finally visit the graves of her parents as her true self.
I also like the idea of Elsa wearing somewhat of a combination of her own icy dress with a more traditional Arendelle queen outfit, now that she's ruling the kingdom openly and properly.

i think your outfit for Elsa is very appropriate. More then the ice dress which I'm sorry i don't think she could command her guards and soldiers wearing her ice dress. She's pretty in it but as queen she needs to wear something more regal.

you're welcome. I only wish the movie had your scene in it. Along with them building a snowman. It would have been perfect and made the movie for me.

I think her parents thought that people would kill her, that's why they locked her in the castle. If you notice in the movie, the troll king showed her being attacked. And her father said "we'll protect her." I think they thought they were protecting her. I have a cannon theory in that last journey, they were trying to find a way to control Elsa's powers.

I mean you can tell they loved her, they just didn't know what to do. Its like a kid with a disease you can't cure, and they suffer and the parents are helpless. Too bad there weren't magic teachers

that they were good parents. Rationalize any way you want, that doesn't change the fact their "conceal,don't feel" method started the conflict in the first place.

Yes. that method wasn't the right one but they don't deserve to be hated. They couldn't find any answers so they tried.

frankly,with what they did, they don't deserve forgiveness and I'm NOT the only one who thinks this way about them

So then nobody deserves forgiveness. Not even you. Because we've all hurt people. We've all done wrong. Just saying.

I love how you made it in a traditional Nordic style. I can see it as a scene painted in a chapel wall or stained glass telling the saga of Arendelle and its rulers:)

Elsa and Anna's parents were flawed but hey, even if there is trolls in that world, it's normal absolutely NORMAL to know your child has ice powers, so they tried their best with the little knowledge they had.

You have a marvelous style. Hvae you considered trying your hand at other Disney movies like Atlantis and The Hunchback of Notre Dame?

They were good parents trying to do the best. They were just ignorant about something NOBODY could be 100% sure. And if everything was like How It Should Have Ended, there would be no story at all. The plot some stupidities so it can HAPPEN.

Thanks so much!  I have absolutely thought about doing other Disney art over the years - it's just a matter of too much to draw, and too little time to draw.  :(  But thank you so much for the compliment and for putting the bug in my ear about other Disney art.  I love Hunchback, but I haven't seen Atlantis in SO LONG…. though I recall really liking it, especially the art design!
And agreed with you on Anna and Elsa's parents.  :)

Like a stained glass window.  And yes, I love the merged queen outfit.

There was no doubt that they loved their parents, and yeah, Dr. Spock didn't write anything about handling magic powers in your kid.  Doctor Xavier may have been a telepath, but his main contribution was analyzing hyper-human powers and coming up with ways to harness or control them.  He'd have figured out Elsa.

Yes, so true… I never even though about what if Dr. X or someone like him was around for poor Elsa (and her parents!)

I really like this picture!  I feel sorry for the parents because they didn't *mean* to mess Elsa up so badly, they were trying to protect Anna (since Elsa really couldn't control her powers) and do what they could for Elsa at the same time.

The reason  I clicked this picture was because of the dress you put Elsa in, I think it would be really fitting for her new status. :)

Yop ! I agree. I think it was quiet interesting to see some mistakes done by parents in a Disney movie...But the way they died...That's really the sadest part of the movie :(
I'm totally in love with all the patterns and details you put in their outfit. Great job, as always :)
