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

image

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.

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!

Who’s the Cutest of Them All?

Hey people! So, upon deciding I would draw a scene from Tarzan about two/three days ago, I realized something very profound during my search for the perfect screencap. Tarzan is the cutest Disney baby ever!!!

No, really. I’m probably forgetting some here, but the only other one I could think of was Hercules, and he sorta looks funny as a baby. Lol! But Tarzan was adorable!! I don’t blame Kala for wanting to keep him. In fact, while drawing baby Tarzan, I couldn’t help but think how much he reminded me of the cutest baby I’ve ever seen in REAL LIFE: my sister! Okay, so she’s older so technically I didn’t see her as a baby, but I’ve seen pictures and home movies and her cuteness really takes the cake!

imageimage image image image

Green and sky blue for his eyes.

image image image image

For the inside of his mouth, violet+brown for the lighter and fuchsia+brown for the darker.

image image image

Outline him with gray, then brown.

image image

Used a light magenta for his skin, and with the same pencil made shadows.

image

Outline with brown again (wasn’t dark enough).

image

Darken shadows in skin with gray.

image image image image image

Blanket wrinkles and fold lines in blue and black.

image image

Blue+turquoise for the blanket color.

image

Gray for blanket shadows.

image

Black to darken his shadow. Done!

Alright, this was far more time-consuming than I had anticipated. The background took FOREVER. Hence why it took me three days…okay, so maybe I got distracted constantly a couple of times, watching Disney song clips on YouTube. *Cough* the point is, I finished it:D

Hope you went ‘aww!’. Now, go watch Tarzan! Or Nazrat, if you say it backwards (that’s the only name I can say backwards besides Yzma! I learned it from watching Lizzie McGuire…lol)

The Hunchback of Notre Dame: The Saddest Part

Odds are you probably don’t think of The Hunchback of  Notre Dame when you list your favorite Disney films. I once was like you. But no more! I watched this movie again a few weeks ago, and it was so good! Very emotional. Try not to cry when you see today’s drawing.

image

Sorry I have no progressional photos of drawing Quasimodo’s face- this was my first attempt at incorporating markers (and a black pen) into my colored pencil world that I’m still just learning to walk in (my first colored pencil drawing was Rapunzel, so now you know how new I am!). I was SO SURE the markers would ruin it and the picture would flop- but no! I worked two days on this, and am glad I didn’t walk away from it!

image image image image image image

Let’s darken up that shirt of his! The most repetitive circumstance encountered in the making of this drawing was the layering of colors to reach the desired hue. CRUCIAL STEPS PEOPLE!!

image image image image image

Almost all black you see in this drawing is from pen. I did use a black colored pencil to darken hues of other colors, and I also used it over black pen areas to soften the look.

image image

Now for Esmerelda. Okay, I want to be honest with you guys, so I’ll just say it: she was the hardest part of this picture! I erased the rough sketch of her features SO MANY TIMES, man, I prob worked on the sketch alone for over an hour or two. But seeing that she’s the largest feature on the page, I did NOT want to mess her up- and here’s an important tip to remember in drawing: better to spend more time fixing the sketch, than to not be able to fix obvious errors later.

image image image image image

For her hair, I drew the highlight lines in gray and then went over them in blue.

image image

First skin layer: pink.

image image image image image image image

Second skin layer: fuchsia.

image

Third skin layer: overall brown and shadows.

image

Lower left hand corner, by Frollo’s face, the seat of Phoebus’ horse. Wow. I just realized the humor in that. That was unintentional, people!

image

Quasi’s feet and the rest of the rope.

image image

Background!

image

For the opening in the background tent (dark purple) I went over the purple marker with purple pencil to smooth it out. That’s it!

Please forgive the color quality of the scan; the actual colors look nothing like that! It closer matches that of the process photos.

Till next time, SANCTUARY!!!

Pocahontas and John Smith

Okay, so I admit, I never cared much for Disney’s Pocahontas as a kid- the characters didn’t have doe eyes, they had too low of voices, and seemed like boring grownups in a boring blue forest. I watched it anyway, because I did sort of like the music, and hey- it was a Disney Princess movie! Had to give it a chance.

Well, now I’m more open-minded to the style of the animation, and lower voices aren’t as boring as I used to think. Despite the fact that in real life, Pocahontas was around 9-13 when she met John Smith, and there was no romantic relationship between them, I still like the two together in the movie, so long as I keep in mind it’s not supposed to be realistic to actual historical events. Also noteworthy is that Pocahontas and John Smith are the first Disney couple who are different ethnicities, though technically they are never REALLY together (yeah, bummer man).

And we can’t talk about Pocahontas and her man John Smith without mentioning the… OTHER John. Oh wait, yeah, we’re pretending that second movie didn’t happen. I heard someone on youtube comment that it was like seeing your parents get divorced- I felt something like that when I first saw the second film on Disney. Way to break my little young, hardly-even-liked-Pocahontas-to-begin-with heart. I was so confused!

Now that I am old enough to enjoy the film, despite its non-Historical tendencies and the obvious danger they are teaching children (KIDS: DO NOT GO HOLDING BEAR CUBS), here’s my process:

image image image image

Draw the lines where the blue streaks of hair will go^^^ (click to enlarge)

image image image image image image image image image

I used pink for her skin color, and then darkened it with a purple-pink pencil.

image image image image

I used the regular white skin tone colored pencil for John, but I used a light orange brown (not too orange though) to darken the shadow under his jaw.

image

Made Pocahontas’ outlines bolder. Used brown to outline John’s hair better.

image

Outlined Pocahontas’ face lightly.

image

Make the two cuts in Pocahontas’ sleeve bolder. That’s it!

Remember to draw with all the colors of the box! (Did you catch the pun? Anyone?)
