More Floursacks

Okay, I know I posted some of these, like, five minutes ago, but they're just too darn fun. These ones are better, anyway. Hope I got his little emotions across well enough. :D
Click to enlarge, please!

Flower Sacks


Inspired by I like the one on the far left the most, probably. It's the simplest one (click to enlarge).

Just something that seemed fun to do. :D

Zombie Bunny Walk Cycle

Used this little animation tutorial ---


And that's why it's lame. lol

This is only, like, my fourth animation, so it's not great (I don't think I even wanna try to post the other ones here). Plus, I pretty much copied what I saw in the tutorial, only made it into Zombie Bunny. Once I get a tablet I'll start doing other, better stuff, hopefully.

Some Drawing Practice

Look at me everybody! Big shot, drawin' the real deal!

Haha... Yeah. I drew these a little while back, just looking at my cats and my dog. ...And my hand. Just like, life drawing practice, I guess. I like the dog feet. :D

You might wanna click on this; it's too small here to really see it well enough.

Don't know why I'm posting this on my blog though... lol.

Zombie Bunny

I made this guy up a couple of years ago, I think. I'm trying to think of/remember more characters to draw more often, and I forgot all about him until now.

He's a zombie bunny... but he's a NICE zombie bunny.

Note the wilted carrot. lol

Caramel Apple Pops

Them's my heroes right there!

Haha. Took a screencap from the Aladdin DVD, 'cause I'm a dork like that. Dunno if you can see them clear enough, but from left to right (other than the guy in blue walking past), it's Alan Menken (composer), Eric Golberg (animator: Genie), Andreas Deja (Animator: Jafar [Or Ja'afar, as I've seen it spelled... whatever]), Will Finn (animator: Iago), Randy Cartwright (Animator: Carpet). All completely talented and awesome people. Hope it's not completely weird that I'm posting their picture on my blog.

Also, the title's got a story behind it... But it's very long and confusing. Mostly for my own entertainment. Hehe. Has nothing to do with these guys, though.

I bought Pocahontas today on DVD. : D That means I officially have 10 Disney DVDs! Eight of which are two-disc special edition. Hunchback of Notre Dame and Lilo and Stitch aren't, 'cause... I don't know. I guess they're not special enough.
Of course, I have 11 if you count Mulan II. But I don't. Heheh. Not that it was horrible, it just... y'know. Sequals.
I just watched Poccahontas, and I would go into a little review about it... But it's an old movie, and that would just be silly.
Well. Not OLD old. But you know. Not NEW.
But I love Wiggins! He's so funny.
Anyway, I used that screencap up there because that part happens to be awesome. It kinda gives you a feeling that they're on a stage, almost. At least, that's what I got out of it. Now I got "Savages" stuck in my head.
See ya!

[Insert profound comment here]

These characters belong to Disney.

Genie Sketch

"They're G-R-R-REAT!"
Just a sketch I did while looking off a screencap. Oh, Genie belongs to Disney.

I Love the Disney Store

At least... Once you get past all the Disney Channel stuff. Eeeeeugh.

Anywho. As the picture suggests, I found the Aladdin 2-Disc Special Edition DVD! Along with the Cinderella one!! Man, I love DVDs. And the fact that, apparently, the Disney store sells Disney movies that are in that danged Disney Vault. Or, at least, I'm almost sure those two are in the vault. Maybe the Disney Store in the mall down here is just special.

Anyway, the special features (the main reason I even buy DVDs) were amazing! Got to see some of my very favorite animators talk about the movie and stuff. And Aladdin actually had an animator's commentary on it! I didn't even know they did stuff like that. Of course, I listened to it first, haha. I'm such a dork.

P.S. - I love Jafar's expression in the screencap up there. And Iago is just hilarious. Also, Iago, Jafar, and that screenshot belong to Disney.

Little Comic

Gahaha. I made a funny.

But... 90% of people don't actually get the joke. If you're one of the 10% that does, please let me know!

Don't ask why Hugo (from Hunchback of Notre Dame) randomly makes a guest appearance in this comic... I couldn't think of anybody to have react to Panda Sensei, and he was the only one that popped in my head, I guess.

Bleh, and please ignore how terrible Panda Sensei looks in this comic! EXPECIALLY IN THE TOP PANEL. UGH. I don't know what I was thinking when I drew him, but... Bleh! Guh... I've been working on him for months and still haven't settled on what he should look like. Is character designing always this hard...?

Guh. ButI think Hugo looks kinda cute. I envy David Pruiksma's skills (he animated Hugo).

Hugo is property of Disney and stuff.

Tick Tock

Cogsworth! Haven't drawn him in a while; figured I would. Plus, I haven't posted /any/ of my drawings of him here, yet (I did once, but I deleted that post... Can't remember why. Plus it was drawn straight from a screencap, and this one was done without a reference).

Hope you like!

Cogsworth, Beauty and the Beast, and all that are property of Disney.

On the Ropes

Gahaha, what a clever title!

For some reason, I've noticed I post mostly just Panda Sensei stuff on here... I guess 'cause most everything else I draw is fanart, and if you really wanna see that, you can just go to my deviantART account in my link thing over there. Though, I guess the same goes for seeing Panda Sensei over there, 'cause I post pretty much everything I post here on there...

Anyhoo, this is what you get when you watch the end dramatic fight scenes of Hunchback of Notre Dame while drawing Panda Sensei.

I usually don't spend very long on a single drawing, so this is a good change, I guess, though it didn't take REALLY long. I think I spent the most time getting the shape of his head to look right, and the, uh... fabric part over his legs. Dunno what you'd call that.

Dunno what he's standing on, either. Maybe a roof or something.

Anyway, I'm done rambling... Enjoy?

OH, OH! In other news, I got the Hunchback of Notre Dame DVD today!! Which is great, 'cause I finally got to watch the 'making of' thing. I rented the DVD from Family Video or whatever, but whoever had it last scratched it all to crud and back, so the 'making of' wouldn't work, and that made me sad. But, I got to see it, so I'm happy now.

Uhh... anyway. Bye!

The Princess and the Frog

Okay, I don't know why I haven't blogged about this yet, but I am REALLY excited about this movie. Prepare for a long post!

First of all, for some of you who may not know, The Princess and the Frog is a new traditionally animated movie coming out in 2009. D'ja hear that? TRADITIONALLY ANIMATED. Yeah. The first one in five years, ever since Michael Eisner at the Disney studios decided to stop the 2D stuff altogether. Luckily, that decision has been changed, and I'm pretty sure Michael Eisner isn't working for Disney anymore.

Speaking of him, I think he's got some latenight talkshow now... I saw it the other night, and it was kinda funny seeing him talking about this woman's new CD at Starbuck's.

Anyway, I think the movie is scheduled to come out in December of 2009, pretty close to Christmas. Heck, I'll be 18 by then... Which is a weird thought.

Here's some more news I think is fantastic! The movie is gonna be directed by the same talented guys that directed The Little Mermaid and Aladdin! Yup, Ron Clements and John Musker! That's pretty good news. I think they'll do a great job.

The movie is gonna be composed by Randy Newman, also. That was actually a little bit disappointing for me, because their first choice was going to be Alan Menken, who did the score for The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Hunchback of Notre Dame (which has one of my favorite scores period), and Enchanted. He's definately my favorite composer, hands down. Wish I could find the Hunchback soundtrack. Anyway, I'm sure Randy Newman can bring something to it, as well. I'm not as familiar with him, considering he does more Pixar stuff, I think, but I do know he did the music for Toy Story.

There's also gonna be some great names in animation doing, well... animation! Here's a couple names I recognized from the list (which you can find, along with a lot more information, on

Ruben A. Aquino is the supervising animator for the characters Big Daddy La Bouf/Prince Naveen. He supervised animation for other Disney characters like Maurice (Beauty and the Beast), Ursula (The Little Mermaid), Adult Simba (The Lion King), Powhatan (Poccahontas), Shang and Fa Li (Mulan), Pleakley and David (Lilo and Stitch), and Denahi (Brother Bear).

Andreas Deja, one of my favorite animators, is the supervising animator for the character Mama Odie. He was the supervising animator for Gaston (Beauty and the Beast), Scar (The Lion King), Lilo (Lilo and Stitch), King Triton (The Little Mermaid), Adult Hercules (Hercules), and Queen Nerissa (Enchanted). (That last one I'm not sure about; let me know if you know otherwise.)

Mark Henn is gonna be the supervising animator for the leading lady, Tiana (who by the way is Disney's first African American princess, which has caused quite a bit of contraversy already, but I'll get to that later). He also was the supervising animator for Ariel from The Little Mermaid. I'm pretty sure he animated Belle from Beauty and the Beast as well, but I don't remember if he was a supervising animator along with James Baxter, or just an animator. I'm sure he's animated plenty of other characters, but I can't seem to find him on Wikipedia, haha.

And here's one I'm really excited about; Nik Ranieri is going to be the supervising animator for the character Charlotte! I mostly know Nik Ranieri as being the supervising animator of Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast, but he's also animated Meeko (Poccahontas), Hades (Hercules), and Kuzco (both human and llama) from Emperor's New Groove.

There are other animators, obviously, but I'm not familiar with their names, so I'll just leave it up to you to look them up. Also, if you spot some information you know is wrong above, please tell me. And if you know of other characters they animated, please let me know!

I really hope this movie does well. As I've mentioned before, Tiana is going to be the first African American Disney princess, and that's caused quite a bit of contraversy. In my opinion, I think everyone should really wait until they SEE the movie to judge it. I know her name used to be Maddy, but people looked at that as a lower-class name I guess, and complained about it, and I think that's the reason it got changed. She also used to be a chambermaid, but people complained about that, too, and I think that was changed as well. I just hope people take it for what it is, and don't complain to Disney to the point where they change the movie into something they didn't want it to be.

On a brigher note, I think John Goodman's doing some voice acting. Dunno what character or anything like that, but I love his voice. I think he did Sully from Monsters Inc. and Pacha from Emperor's New Groove, right?

Also, the movie is going to be a musical! That I am really excited about. I really loved that about movies like Beauty and the Beast, Hunchback of Notre Dame, and all those greats, and it's awesome that they're bringing that back. I know Ron Clements and John Musker are probably under a lot of pressure to make this movie great, considering there's so many firsts (first 2D movie in five years, first African American princess ect.), and contraversies, but I hope they just stick to what they think is best and really put out an amazing movie.

This movie isn't only exciting for me just because it's another Disney traditionally animated feature, but it also gives me a lot of hope. I want to be an animator at Disney one day (traditional, not CGI). A while back, before I knew the movie was coming out, people kept saying that Disney wasn't going to do 2D anymore, and that was depressing. I was starting to think of other career choices, like being a character designer, storyboard artist, things like that, which would be fun, but not my first choice, y'know? Then I get news of this movie being on its way, and it's like a breath of fresh air. Heh, corny as it is. I don't think I'm going to be able to sit still when I finally get to see the movie. I might squeal out loud the first time I see a trailer in the movie theater. I feel sorry for whoever would be seeing a movie with me, haha.

Anyway, hope I didn't bore ya with my extremely long blog post thingy. Hope you're as excited about this as I am!
