Your affection for your charge has rendered you incapable of clear and impartial judgement. You have a father’s love for the child, and that is useless to the cause.
i KNOW i’m just beating a long-dead horse by doing this but for god’s sake disney
fyi only superficial things were changed in the edit (hair, eyelash length, freckles, skin tone) the actual model wasn’t changed at all
to be clear: she photoshopped anna’s hair onto hiro’s mom face. a lot of people in reblogs seem to think that the one on the right is literally anna and trying to find miniscule, non-existant differences… which sort of proves the point? that a picture of a different character can be mistaken for anna so easily with just a hairstyle change and that people will still defend the design choice to the death rather than admit the similarities… sheeesh.
How about this. You go to Pixar studio, and you tell them to change it. or get a job there and do it yourself, OH WAIT
YOU CAN’T! Cause you’re just someone bitching on the internet, and businesses don’t care about people bitching on the internet.
such a sad shame, isn’t it? Reality really.
Also, no, she STILL doesn’t look like Anna, even with Anna’s hair, she doesn’t look like anna, she just looks like that other chick with Anna’s hair.
the fact that you have no creative eye to tell a difference in characters, even by minuscule teeny details, is ridiculous.
they’re still two different charterers
and by sitting there and comparing them all day, of course they’re going to look similar to you.
Quit bitching will you PLEASE.
Stop looking for every little thing to complain about, because Disney? Disney don’t give a fuck, and no matter how hard you try, they will NEVER give a fuck.
Okay I’m gonna pull this card because you’re just rude enough for it. I was an animation intern at Pixar in 2011 and just last year I was offered a job there that I only turned down because right now I prefer a permanent position as opposed to a 3-6 month contract. So no, you don’t get to use the “get a job and do it yourself” bullcrap on me.
Of course the edit doesn’t look exactly like Anna. But honestly, trying to tell me that the edit looks NOTHING like her is absurd. The proportions and facial features are very, very similar. If I were to overlay Anna’s face with Hiro’s mom there would be small differences, like maybe one nose is straighter than the other. When discussing character design similarities like this are terrible. There are infinite possibilities and Disney keeps using the same general face recently.
And I don’t complain just because it’s Disney. If another studio did this I would be on their ass about it too. I love animation and I love seeing studios push beyond what’s been done before. On top of that, I don’t complain because I hate the company, I complain because I know they can do SO MUCH BETTER.
Sit the fuck down, son. You just got told by a real quality professional and all of the other professionals are just shaking their heads at you.
My mom is so mean to me

Dang it, Jim. I’m an astronomer, not a doctor! I mean, I am a doctor, but I’m not that kind of doctor. I have a doctorate, it’s not the same thing. You can’t help people with a doctorate. You just sit there and you’re useless!
Veronika Scott was a fashion student at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit when her teacher, Stephen Schock, challenged her class to create a product that filled a need, rather than satisfying or creating a fad. Veronika’s design was a coat for homeless people that could transform into a sleeping bag, since in her city, she says, “you are constantly faced with the homeless epidemic.”
Not only did her design win a International Design Excellence Award from the Industrial Designers Society of America, it’s become the core of Veronika’s nonprofit organization, The Empowerment Plan, which hires people from homeless shelters and transition homes to help her make the coats. Now, three years later, the 24-year-old social entrepreneur expects that her team of 15 seamstresses will produce over 6,000 coats in 2014 — all of which will be distributed free of charge to people living on the streets.
Veronika originally designed the coats seeking input from people at a homeless shelter. After receiving feedback from people who used the prototype over a Detroit winter, she refined the design to create her final version which, in addition to being a waterproof and windproof coat and sleeping bag, also transforms into an over-the-shoulder bag with storage in the arm sockets.
When she started out, Veronika states,
“Everybody told me that my business was going to fail — not because of who I was giving my product to but because of who I was hiring. They said that these homeless women will never make more than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich — you cannot rely on them for anything. And I know my ladies enjoy proving everybody wrong.”
And, their impact is growing — according to CNN, which recently honored Veronika as one of their 10 Visionary Women of 2014, “The Empowerment Plan expects to launch a ‘buy one, give one’ program that will make it sustainable beyond the donations and sponsorships that keep it running now. Hunters and backpackers who’ve asked to buy the coat will be able to do so, and the Empowerment Plan will still create coats for homeless people who need them.”
Veronika is also excited to show other clothing producers that local manufacturing is possible: “I think we’re going to show a lot of people: you think it’s outdated to do manufacturing in your neighborhood, but I think it’s something that we have to do in the future, where it’s sustainable, where you invest in people, where they’re not interchangeable parts.”
