Who's heard the Moana soundtrack? I have and I love it! I've been excited about this movie for nearly two years ^^; and I have been listening to nothing but the soundtrack all day (Dwayne Johnson sounds really good btw!) and wanted to draw the reaction of Mia, Andre and Lotty;
Because Andre and Lotty are both Polynesian and so fit with the movie - Andre wouldn't usually be that excited but it's about his culture and his sister gets a Disney princess that looks like her and is happy about that and Mia, although Aboriginal Australian and not Polynesian, she feels that this is the closest she'll ever get to a princess like her, closest she ever got was Tiana.
Yeah Mia is really excited - Dai bought her the album and tickets for her to go and see it - he might quickly regret that XD Yeah, he wont sing it out loud publicly, much to Mia's dismay but he will definently sing it to her when she needs cheering up :)
I feel that I have more to say but I can't remember at the moment ^^;
(that's not a good sign)
This is a page tester for a little mini comic- Inspired by this illustration - I like how it's turned out in general but I'm not entirely sure of it. I think I might re-draw it and try and make it simpler, and maybe experiment more before starting the other pages.
Feedback and opinions are really welcomed :D
Art and character belong to me
I actually drew these a long while back but I wasn't sure if I should post them, but I've decided to post a few of them.
I like making studies of screenshots from animated movies to practice and studies but swapping out the actual characters to make it more of a challenge for myself ^^;
Jessie & Dewey as Kiki and Tobe from Ghibli's Kiki's delivery service
I thought this would be an obvious choice for these two, and Jessie actually resembles the book version of Kiki ^^
of the bay of Afallon XD as Ghibli's Nausicaa from Nausicaa of the valley of the wind.
Efa will be quite new for everyone even though I made her back at the beginning of the year, I just haven't posted anything of her yet ^^; Chose this for her because it was a big inspiration for her story :) Her hair is also more curly than that, but it was difficult, as there aren't any ghibli characters with hair like her for me to refrence
Azlyn as Pocahontas
PLEASE ignore the terrible excuse for animal! I needed something to be in the front but I haven't designed any animals for Mlialiezi pre its destruction. Anyway chose these two because they somewhat match each other in personality and I really like the song ^^
I really like how these have turned out and they are really helpful in learning and stuff so I would recommend it, I will probably make more in the future, maybe some dreamworks ones and more disney and ghibli if I can find a good screenshot and Oc's to correspond with them :) but I'm not sure if I'll be posting them >.>
The respective owners own the top halves of the pictures and I own the bottom halfs :D
I hope you all like them :D
The Roberts siblings - Dai and Mia
I was planning something and so needed to make a height guide of them as little kids and then that sprouted an idea for a little comic so I made the second age set and decided to do their current age for the sake of it and decided to show it here for some reason in case anyone is interested ^^;
I really love these two, they bicker and all that but they have such a close bond with the other - I just really like they're relationship :)
I really hope you like it :)
characters and sketches belong to me
Some portraits :D
petit prince Llew
This is from an earlier post, that I said I wouldn't work on further but then my hand slip and went further, but I stopped at just the face, I really don't think I'll carry it on any further XD Unless my hand slips again
I wanted to draw a proper portrait of Llew and I tried to show the less arrogant side of Llew
I don't draw her enough recently and I need to make that right! Just a little portrait of her and that I used for one of my business card designs :D She works really well on them :D
Llew's father - Thomas Llewelyn(Otherwise better known as Tomo)
This guy is Llew dad (and in turn Ozzy's grandfather) Their family is a little complicated so I wont go into too much detail ^^; Yeah but I've been working on developing this guy recently, he is very bright and intelligent, didn't have a set profession but liked doing lots of different jobs. He's a good mix of Llew and Ozzy (or should I say that Ozzy and Llew are a good chunk of Tomo) Thomas is Welsh and his name is pronounced with a 'oh' sound instead of the 'ah'- Did this because I needed a explanation to why on Earth Llew has a welsh name >.<; Yeah so back to Tomo, Llew would have had a much better life had he been raised up by Tomo, but unfortunately he was killed pretty much on the same day as Llew was born. He was in his mid-fifties.
On an artistic standpoint it was to try and draw/paint and older person and to try and show a family resemblance with out being same facey~
I really hope you all like them :D
