I promised I'd come back to dA.
I promised I'd post Disney pictures.
I promised I do a series of posts looking back on bad art.
And I ... kinda did those. But not fully.
... But if there's one thing I can promise, it's that I CANT STOP DRAWING DISNEY PRINCESS FANART. For some reason, I draw Ariel and Belle a lot. A few Cinderellas and such here and there though.
I tried to record a video of me doing this but for some reason it did not save properly and I can't access it. I saved it as an .avi file but it's a very small file size, so I doubt it actually recorded or saved fully (since the length or recording was probably 40 minutes long). The video recorder gives me the option of saving things as a .swf file but I did a test run and it just opened up a blank firefox page. Not entirely sure what to do...
Anyway, here's the picture I did.
... Yup, that's Belle alright. This... kind of isn't done I think? I might try shading and stuff, fix it a bit, clean it up, but I kind of like the simplicity.
Okay, shamefully, I lost my copy of Beauty and the Beast in the Great "I'm A Big Girl" Genocide of... 20...04 or something. I lost practically all of my VHSs somehow and I regret it. But I was in Half Price Books today and I found a video section! EEEI! Full of kids films, mostly, but lots of Disney stuff. I was only able to get a copy of Beauty and the Beast (for $4), no idea if it works, but I plan on going back when I have some money to get some other titles. Hopefully Fantasia 2000 and Prince of Egypt are still there.
EDIT: Also! I saw District 9 today and it was one of the funnest movie going experiences I have had this summer! I found myself rooting SO HARD for the aliens, I was fist pumping the air in my head whenever something good happened for the aliens. It was incredibly awesome, even if I was sitting next to a chatty, smelly smoker and a kid that was WAY TOO VOCAL about when something was awesome [with the help of his dad.] And aesome things happened a lot, sooo...
I've actually been thinking about doing some fanart for it, in the shape of Christopher and his son. Those two characters really resonated with me and I'm not entirely sure why, but I want to draw them. Plus I don't draw aliens or monsters very frequently so it'll be good practice. And the aliens just... looked... AWESOME. My favorite part of them was the little claw hand things on their stomach area. So cute! I just need to fid some good reference. The commercials have some nice closeups, maybe that?
