As you can see from my first sketches, the research phase for the character of Angelique was very short. In fact she came to be before we really knew what she was going to get up to in the film. Small tweaks were made to her bodyshape to differentiate her further from Eleanore, to reach the proportions illustrated in the quick comparative study of the two characters. And a few adjustments were brought to her features to make them more 3d-friendly. But all in all, the proud face and stature were a certainty from the very beginning of production.
