Confessions of a Snow Queen by MattesWorks Confessions of a Snow Queen by MattesWorks
I wanted to do another Elsa piece once I saw the movie and got to know her character more. My first piece was just for fun.
This piece is much more serious and full of emotion. I wanted to create a scene of my own that still felt like the movie. I wanted to show a moment for Elsa in the early part of coronation day where she felt overcome with sadness and regret. Regret in all the time that she didn’t get to spend with her sister. Thinking of all the fun they could’ve had together, and how much she really wanted to “build a snowman.” I also softly put the ship representing her parents; another aspect of family that she missed out on growing up.
I wanted to show this torn feeling between hiding her powers and just “letting them go.” I wanted to show her powers as well as her memories and remorse. So I combined the two. As far as the background, I HAD to use a door to reference the cutest scene from the film.
I also revamped and accessorized her gown a little. I did more of a Snow Flake pattern on the chest part rather than the floral print, but I wanted it to still look and feel like her dress.

Sure did! I like to work on many pieces at once. That was I can go back and forth without getting board working on the same one for too long.
THANKS!
