I'm always impressed by the detail in your artwork! I love how Renata is holding up the Eiffel Tower. I also like the various sketches of Linguini.

Oh my gravy!! little-chef, these drawings are amazing!! :D Just out of curiosity, how did you decide what Renata looked like? Just a feminine version of Linguini? Anyway, I love these! :D

IV: Aww, you're so sweet! Thank you very much! :D

Back when I designed Renata in '07, I tried to look at different pictures of Alfredo and Gusteau and pick out which features Alfredo got from his father. Once I had a handle on that, I took all the features Alfredo had that I didn't see in Gusteau, and used them for Renata.

One thing I noticed is that Alfredo and Gusteau actually have very similar eye shapes. I really wish I could show you guys in greater detail and with screenshots, but I'd probably bore you all to death. :lol: Anyway, I've always drawn Renata with Alfredo's eye shape, but noticed later on that Gusteau actually had similar eyes, so I had to change Renata's eyes a little bit. Things like Alfredo's face shape, eyebrows/eyelids, general body shape, hair, and mouth depending on the screenshot (I also see a lot of Gusteau in Alfredo's mouth, but only when he's smiling) - were all used to make Renata. :)

Hope that explains things, and I'm sorry if I went into too much boring detail. I find the resemblance between Gusteau and Alfredo completely fascinating, and I can't stand it when Talon Labarthe (Skinner's lawyer) says he doesn't see much resemblance between the two. If you really study it, there's plenty of resemblance! :P

Kenzie: Thank you very much, as well! Detail in artwork is always a pain, but I'm glad it shows through! :D

Wow, that's cool! And I don't think it's boring. I like long explanations. :) Anyway, I really like how you draw her, and thanks for explaining it. :D

That's very cool how much you go into detail! :) I remember I used to try doing things like that, but I never got too far.
I also admire your artwork, you're amazing. :D Keep up the good work!

That does make sense, very good idea!

Oh guys hi, I'm bad at posting my fan art here. ;o;

I didn't really draw that much over the course of last year because of the move, but for whatever reason I've been obsessing over Ratatouille like crazy the past year just like it was 2007. I'm not quite sure why. :lol:

I'll just dump all the pieces I've done since my last update in this post. If you have any questions about them, please ask! Sometimes my little stories aren't completely explained properly, which is my fault. :P

--

A random rat

Yet another sketch of Renata!

Nolan being cute

Nolan and Colette, actually together omg

Anyone remember Joelinne?

And for the most recent pieces:

A sketch of Alfredo, the one used in my avvie!

Nolan being cute again

My Christmas picture, obvs featuring bb Nolan

And lastly, this. One of the most poignant themes from my Ratatouille fanfiction finally came out on digital paper. There's more description of it in the artist's comments.

I put up the plain line art for that piece above as well, mainly because the coloring came out really sloppy and I personally prefer the line art.

Hiiii I have moar art :3

Would it help if I actually like, posted the images here instead of a ton of links? Like, would people be more inclined to look orrrr ok I'm just thinking out loud sorry.

I've got two new pieces!! The first one is of Renata, I decided to draw her in an oversized sweater that looks like it came right out of the late 80s, early 90s. :lol:

Image

I finished this piece yesterday, another rare drawing of Colette and baby Nolan together! :)

Clicking both images links to the appropriate deviations on dA, where you can view them fullsize. :D

I love both of these new ones! I really like your detail, like on the first one the crumples on Renata's clothes. Also I love The Incredibles reference in the second.
