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:

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

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!

Sketchy: Rapunzel, Anna and Other Doodles

 

Alright now! I’ve been slacking, so my apologies for the minimal quantity of posts as of late. Too busy with school to start-up any larger, colored pictures right now, so some random sketches will have to suffice.

image

The first I just drew a few minutes ago! Aurora turned out poorly, but Anna and Punzie look alright. Not to scale (whatever ya do, don’t compare these to the originals! Yikes!) but recognizable enough! Didn’t have a working eraser around so all mistakes are left as-is!

image

This one I did a few weeks ago, but didn’t feel it was enough to post on its own. It really isn’t good. Why did I post it then? To remind myself how important practice and just toying around can be for expanding one’s library of facial expressions and postures. It’s more about the idea of the pose, rather than the finished product. Leave that for the clean-up artists! (The equivalent of letting the night-guy get it, for those of you who watched Ned’s Declassified.. Yeah, I know, not Disney…shame on me).

As for the first drawing: which turned out best, Anna or Rapunzel?

Even though the cold DOES bother me (sorry Elsa), I can’t wait for snow! Anyone else dreaming of a white Christmas? I like to start early. Just so I can look forward to ‘authentically’ singing Do You Want to Build a Snowman (just a tinge of deception inside when singing it in July, know what I mean? Don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about!)

Sketchy: More Ariel and Hands

Hey there! Okay, so for some reason I really enjoy redrawing sketches of Ariel. I hope this doesn’t keep happening though, because I feel bad not showing a good variety of characters on here. What can I say, she’s easy to draw. I usually make her eyes too small, but at least I’m aware of it.

image

Favorites first! This was the best of the lot.

image

Hand practice with the rest of her hooked on as an afterthought. This happens far too often; I did the same thing with Pocahontas a few weeks ago (only I continued with coloring her in!)

image

This is almost decent. The shading is weird, so it probably looks like some freaky disproportioned mess from a distance.

image

And some hands! Ariel, Aladdin, Cinderella, and Jasmine were looked at for this. Also some improv too. Some are very bad, so don’t focus on those. Ha!

Alright, well that’s all for today! I gotta fly! (or I guess, fall with style. Same dif.)

Sketchy: Jasmine, Aurora and Mulan

Okay, just some sketches today! They are not perfect, and the lines drawn across the faces and such I actually added after the fact to make them look more like the original production sketches. Enjoy!

Totally unrelated, but I watched the Lion King 1 1/2 today, and WOW was I surprised! Not only was it hilarious, but the animation was just as good as the original film! Why can’t they make other Disney sequels so well? One of the few times I actually enjoyed a following film more than the first one.
