A super quick “redesign” of Oswald for the new Mickey Mouse shorts’ style.
And I put redesign in quotes because honestly I don’t think he’d really need all that much changed about him! They could practically keep him the same, I just had a little fun giving him buttons on his shorts similar to Mickey and adding the overall strap.
sometimes i think about how disney could’ve put oswald in some of those new mickey mouse shorts as a way of reintroducing his character to people and how that was such a wasted opportunity to actually do something new with him animation-wise….
Also got to meet Jim Cummings today. He was very impressed by my art style, comparing it to the new Mickey Mouse shorts on Disney Channel. He then complimented my artwork as Peg Leg Pete (which was just awesome). After that I asked him if he could give me a little bit of Bonkers D. Bobcat, which he quickly proceeded to do, even having Bonkers ask me questions like I was at the scene of a crime ( “I’ll let you off with a warning this time, but only if you do it again.”).
So overall it was pretty cool… Oh yeah, and I got to have a conversation with Peg Leg Pete and Bonkers D. Bobcat!
“I absolutely love Minnie in the new Mickey Mouse shorts. I love the fact that not only she start receiving an actual personality besides being nice but the fact that she gets to participate in the slapstick this time around and gets her own shorts has really made her stand out to me and has really made me appreciate her even more.”
I’ve been extremely excited about these ever since I seen prototypes on the server a couple years back! A new Mickey Mouse Shorts promotion just hit the Disney Parks! Pirates of the Caribbean edition! If you go to the gift shop after the ride at Land or World you can find this stuff! I’m guessing these are exclusive to the parks. They made pins, magnets, youth and adult t-shirts, plush and figures! It’s amazing to see actual sculpted products of our version of Mickey. Everything came out really well and Paul gave notes and did most of the design work during the process which is super cool of them to do. Our Mickey is slowly hitting the parks, theres so much stuff to look forward to!
Another new Mickey short premiered this weekend! In “Wish Upon a Coin” we give our take on Snow White! I had a lot of fun doing Snow White herself and tons of Mickeys and Minnies. It’s one of my favorites from season three. More are coming soon from the episode!
The new episode is up! “Adorable Couple” is now online! I got to draw the band from “Band Concert” and if you look closely you may see a glimpse of red hair. ;3 Beware, the songs will get stuck in your head.
