Jasmine King Of Thieves Jozef Szekeres by Elf-Fin Jasmine King Of Thieves Jozef Szekeres by Elf-Fin
Jasmine
King Of Thieves
Animation By Jozef Szekeres

Here we have Jasmine from the 3rd Aladdin film (2nd straight to video/DVD), wherein I did animation mostly on Jasmine and sometimes on Aladdin, as often they were together in this film (in that lovey-dovey sort of way). As a big romantic, I was often cast to animate those special moments between the leading characters, and when Jasmine was to be especially pretty, or to show emotion. Apparently I was known for animating the leading ladies "Disney pretty" and with emotions behind their eyes. I of course enjoyed that connection, because it allowed me to do more and more of that sort of character and animation.... which I enjoyed.

You worked as a Disney animator! I have great respect as Disney characters are my favorite, if not challenging, to draw. And Jasmine here has never looked more beautiful. Tell me, what is your process for both animation and drawing for animation?

Aww thank you. I always wanted to show Jasmine as beautifully as I could, as she's a beautifully designed character. As an animator, it's not just getting the character to look right, but to get emotions to come through their faces and body. When working at Disney, I was known for making the princesses Disney beautiful, BUT with emotion behind their eyes.

I'd say, get into the emotion of the character that the character is feeling, as you're drawing them. One way that helps me do this is to listen to music that reflects the emotion of the moment. Also have a mirror and ape your own facial expressions in these emotions, and you'll get the best reference... yourself.

Actually, I recognize some of these poses from Return of Jafar -- bottom right and most of the middle, specifically.

I worked on that film too.

I've filed all my Aladdin/Jasmine stuff together, rather then by film.
