Lone Ranger Illustration

So here’s (finally) another post, but it’s one of those that’s “technically” a Disney movie, but not an animated one. Yeah, one of those. Ew, boring, might as well just go home. Jk, don’t go, I spent a lot of time on this. The Lone Ranger came out in 2013 I believe, but I only saw part of it last night. Apparently that part was enough to inspire a drawing!

It’s not based on the actors or a particular scene in the film; the greatest similarity is my basing John Reid’s outfit closely to the film’s. With that being said, here’s the preliminary sketches and the final deal for ya to look upon:

image

Preliminary sketch. Very light. Blocking in some details and have fixed some errors that stood out to me.

image

Closer look at early sketch. This would have been a good time to tweak Rebecca’s face, but alas, I did not do so.

image

I opted out of inking it and just went over it with more determined pencil lines, erasing mistakes. Erasers are an artist’s best friend✏️

image

Pretty happy with the turn out. There are some things I’d like to fix, but I usually don’t edit drawings after I post them SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO they’ll just likely sit on the shelf forever. Good talk!

Thanks for checking my doodle-y-doo out! Catch ya on the flippity-flop!

Timon and Pumbaa AND Flounder

Because they go together DUHH.

No, actually two different drawings for my new Disney “species-bend” kick.

First up, a big pig (yup-yup) and his pal as humans CAUSE WHY NOT;)

Full size drawing

Original compared to my rendition:9

Now for Flounder! Of course, with Ariel, because they’re buddies.

image

Preliminary stages of the drawing…line work over pencil work and ready to begin color work

image

If I could go back I would make his merman tail shorter because he’s just a kid in the movie, (here I drew him more as a teenager)

image

Final drawing compared to the original screenshot! Also, I love how official my writing looks in these boxes beneath the pictures, I could literally say unicorns are building a sandcastle and it would look prestigious

Thanks so much for reading! Have an enchanted day^_^ CAUSE WHY NOT?

Star Wars and Robin Hood

Greetings all! Sorry for the year-long, unprecedented hiatus. YOLO! Actually, just college and well,…that’s it. Anywho, dunno how much I’ll be posting but of course I’m gonna drop by when I draw something Disney related. We don’t have much to catch up on, as I haven’t drawn a LOT of Disney related stuff in the past year. Even so, here we gooooo *says like Peter Pan and you just stare at me like I’m crazy*. Alright then:

Early pic of the poster’s progress, and also size comparison

Padme being all stylish in her reflective headpiece

Sad, intense moment to make the poster reach different colors from the movie

image

This is life-size btw

Over all I’ve spent about 30 some odd hours on this. I began drawing Obi-Wan, but he isn’t far enough along yet to post the progress. The poster is also planned to feature many other characters and a ship and another scene or two. But I won’t be finishing it for a while, b/c of school. YOLO.

Alrighty, so now for a more Disney-themed drawing that’s more up our usual cartoony, 2-D alley! A human version of Robin Hood and Maid Marian! Whaaaat? Yes, it’s true. I plan on doing one for Lady and the Tramp as well.

I hope you all enjoyed this update! I’m sorry I’ve been such a late rabbit with posting.

Later Days!

A Princess Predicament

This is my first “not rendered in the traditional Disney style” post! Which presses me to ask, “is this is a warm moment, or should I be disturbed?” Anyway, here ya go:

image

Sorry that they aren’t ALL in there… ran outta space:p

*Tries immensely to think of a Disney-related outro, but can only come up with, “until next time, I’m Kevin O’Connor, and I’m Tom Silva of Ask This Old House”*…hmmm….not very princess-y, but it will have to do.

-Abigail

It’s Coronation Day!

image

I did this with a junky round stic pen. It may not be to scale, I wasn’t being very precise when I took the picture (I’m at school, so…).

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? How are you Disney-lovin’ fools doing?:) Excited for upcoming Disney films? I KNOW I AM! Although, traditionally, I do not go and see movies in theaters. Perhaps I’ll actually go see something this year!

Sketchy: Wendy, Robin Hood and Aladdin

Howdy people! Just some sketches from last night! I don’t know what it is about sketching… You think it will only take a few minutes and next thing you know you’ve been studying and sketching characters for hours. With very little to show for it- EXCEPT practice and maybe a drawing or two.

As always, I intended to JUST PRACTICE HANDS and then rabbit trailed it all the way into full character sketches. Thus was the case with Aladdin and Brom Bones.

image

Funny story, I didn’t know who Brom Bones was until just a minute ago when I looked him up. From the Legend of Sleepy Hallow apparently. I thought he’d have brown or red hair, but he didn’t. My expectations were wrong, but I guess there’s only so much you can glean from a production sketch. As for Robin Hood- I really love the production art of him! Milt Kahl is an amazing artist and somehow manages to make animals possess as much expression as humans. I personally have not been one to favor animal main characters (sorry Bambi), but I can’t deny the talent and great human-like personalities artistically rendered into in the likes of Lady and the Tramp or Robin Hood.

image

My apologies for his face not looking like him. This was, after all, “just hand practice”…lol. As Glen Keane said, “And this one’s too hard to draw. Unfortunately, this is the one we have to draw.” Lol I find that sort of comforting, though, that he’d say that…

image

Alright, this is from a few weeks or so ago. Not that great, but I will master them eventually. The biggest problem I seem to have (that I’ve noticed– if you see another, please don’t hesitate to inform me) is the size of the eyes. I have the tendency to draw them too small more often than not. And as you can see also, the misplacement of features on the face- Wendy’s mouth, for instance.

Maybe you have or maybe have not noticed that I’ve been mentioning hand practice a lot. I am DYING to master hands, but it seems more of a happy accident when I properly execute them on paper. Since nearly all of my current art/tests appear on this blog, you can see I haven’t been practicing too terribly much. I am hoping that I can pull myself together enough to really work on them over this Christmas break.

Thanks for reading, now go think happy little thoughts!

Sketchy: Heads, Hands, Frozen and Tangled

K guys, I am actually sketching in a sketch pad today! Haven’t done that since… eh, forever. Anywho, here’s some very poor quality pics!

imageimage

For both the male and female tests, I liked the profiles best. I’ll keep working on the straight-on views of the faces and hopefully do better.

image

Redrawing some hand drawings I saw on Pinterest along with sketching my own hand (bottom right).

imageimage

Okay, Eugene is very hard to draw. I’ve yet to draw him to my satisfaction. I just can’t get his nose right! First time really for Kristoff; he was easy. Anna was easy. I think Rapunzel and Eugene’s faces aren’t as extreme, hence it’s harder to capture them. Know what I mean?

Okay now that I’ve sketched I think I’ll take a climb or sew a dress or maybe just eat dinner. Later guys!

Ariel and Flounder: Shoe Art

You guys have seen me draw on printer paper, poster board and t-shirts. Today I did something new. Not new for me, but for you, my faithful followers…all two or three of you! Seriously though, shoe art is amazing. Something about amateur drawings being on a shoe makes them like fifty times better. So in that spirit, WE RIDE! Well, actually draw…okay, whatever, anyway:

image

Thankfully this shoe is composed of that leathery stuff and not of the cotten-y, fabricated stuff. I prefer it that way for blending purposes. Sketched it in pencil.

image

Okay, I should have colored her face and then outlined things in the black. Live and learn.

image image image

I did not have a skin-tone sharpie, so I just layered the pink and yellow. Way more orange than her actual color, but I TRIED, OKAY?!?

image

For the dark portion of her hair under her bangs, I went over the red with brown

image

Being wise and coloring Flounder in before I outline him!

image image

Now for an aerial view…lol, oh man, I kill myself…

image

Ohhh de bubble de bubble de bubbles– My bubbles! (Finding Nemo reference, points if you recognized it)

image image image image image

I didn’t sketch out the logo, I just tried to wing it on the first try with the marker. Woot!

image image

If I trusted myself enough (I don’t) I’d say, “just imagine if those bubbles were lanterns and do a Tangled shoe!”. But NO, that is a big leap… CGI technology: too fancy for my sharpies and sneaker art… On paper with pencils, yes, with markers, no.

image image

And that’s it!

Would you wear this shoe? Is anyone else wondering why there’s only one? THAT IS A STORY FOR ANOTHER DAY, AND UNTIL THAT DAY–

I’m outie, (Lizzie McGuire reference, get with the program people!)
