Your Oscar one is fantastic! It's a very clever idea. I like your Geoffrey Rush & Colin Firth charicatures the best. How long did it take for you to make this?

Thanks Leirin!

EJE: If I recall, I did it over two or so nights, the weekend before the Oscars. In total, I'd say approximately two-three hours of drawing (because I had to search for the reference images) and one hour of colouring in Woody, Buzz, and Gobber the Belch, along with general touch-ups and colour-correction. :)

Nobody tangos with the Rango!

So I watched what could possibly be one of the best movies of the year a fortnight ago. I have been highly-anticipating Rango since the teaser released mid last-year, and I had been granted the opportunity to watch an advance screening of it by my university magazine.

Needless to say, my expectations were met, and then some! It should still be playing in theatres, and I highly recommend anyone who hasn't seen it to hustle down the your local cinema posthaste! A movie this epic deserves to be seen on the big screen.

I love this movie. I've never seen such a powerful film on existentialism and fulfilling one's destiny since Wall-E.

Drawn with pencil and coloured in photoshop. Rango's pose inspired by Clint Eastwood's iconic 'lean-on-one-leg' pose as The-Man-With-No-Name. Google Image it! I really pushed the colour balance to yellow to make it look faded and dry on purpose. Random sparks and smoke FTW.

Oh man, that might be one of your best! The colors are all working really harmoniously, and the arrangement of characters is really good. *rushes down to theater to see Rango*

I love your Rango and Oscar drawings. :mrgreen: But, may I ask, who are the two in the middle kissing in the Oscar one? :)

I would say they're Nic, from The Kids are all Right and Nina from Black Swan.

I really like that Rango drawing! Awesome, makes me wanna see the film even more now.

I love the combination of traditional line-art and digital colouring, too. Looks really nice. :D

Just skimmed your non-Pixar art. My favorite would DEFINITELY be the HTTYD/Avatar crossover, even despite I haven't seen the latter. :lol:

O.M.G. So sorry for the late reply guys, y'all are too awesome.

Image

Leirin: I can't remember if you mentioned if you liked Rango, but I hope you did! Thanks for the comment. :)

IV: The girl in glasses on the left is Annette Bening as Nic from 'The Kids Are All Right', and the girl in the tutu on the right is Natalie Portman as Nina from 'Black Swan'. Both films featured lesbian pairings, so I 'shipped' these two together for the purpose of this montage. ;)

EJE: Haha, I read your comment last year, but it's nice to look back on it and realise you enjoyed the movie since then. :D

SoA: That's right! :mrgreen:

Badger: I think you enjoyed the film? Anyway, yeah, most of my drawings are done in traditional line-art, and then digitally coloured in. I'm just repeating whatever you said, am I? :P Anyway, thanks for the compliment!

SgtYayap: You should really watch Avatar! Its story is predictable (but no less moving) and it's one of my favourite films of all-time.

.....

So it's been months since my last drawing. To celebrate the recent Derpy Day, here's my very first MLP drawing! And fitting too, since she's my favourite background pony. ;)

Welp, I'm kinda belated on this one, but better late than never, right?

I've been a fan of Sibsy ever since I discovered her back in her Cars-fanart-drawing days. Then I was delighted to learn she was drawing Cars and Darkwing Duck for Boom Studios. And THEN she goes on to become a storyboard artist for one of the best shows on television at the moment.

I am very envious.

So this is my little birthday tribute to her awesome OC, Wild Fire. Keep up the good work, girl!

Screw the hooficures, I've got a bike! :)

Maybe if enough people like it, you might help me get featured on Drawfriend! ;)

Saudade (Brazilian Portuguese: [sawňądadi]; plural saudades) is a Portuguese word that has no direct translation in English. It describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing will never return.
- Bell A.F. (1912) In Portugal

I needed an excuse to pick up drawing again, and what better one than to make a (one-week belated) birthday gift for a friend? I've always been drawing humorous (or at least, I'd like to think so) crossover pieces, and while this is in the same vein, I wanted to add some pathos to it too.

Or as Walt Disney once said: "For every laugh, there should be a tear."

Oh man, I feel so awful doing this to Blu, haha. Happy 21st, Kenzie/ellie-jessie-eve! Image

You know, I was actually surprised nobody had drawn something like this before, what with them both being macaws in Rio de Janeiro. x3 It's very cool the way you've drawn it, I dig your traditional style, but oh my goodness, poor Blu. D:

Sorry I haven't been commenting a lot! I still love seeing your work though!
