one of my favorite all time disney characters

2

Okay, you see this? These are jacket cover/inside cover of a book called “The Beast Within” written by Serena Valentino, who wrote other Disney books that are so amazing. I purchased her first Disney book in the Germany Pavilion in Epcot a few years ago and have bought every other book of hers since. But lemme tell you why this one is my favorite:

Not only is “Beauty and the Beast” one of my favorite films of all time, but the Beast is one of my favorite characters in any film. And this book makes him seem so much more understandable. It’s written in his perspective and there’s literally a scene where he’s so close to being an actual monster that he goes out to kill Belle after she runs away from him.

Did you hear me?

HE GOES TO KILL BELLE.

Of course, he fights the wolves that attack her because in his mind, he’s like “wait I can redeem my human status still” while the beast side is literally chanting “RIP THE FLESH OPEN AND SPILL HER BLOOD EVERYWHERE ALL OVER THE SNOW COVERED GROUND”.

Let me tell you, this book is so good. And it gives more backstory to Gaston (who is, as you guessed, one of my favorite Disney villains).

If you enjoyed the 2017 version of “Beauty and the Beast”, you’ll enjoy this book. It’s different than the film, but just as good, in my opinion.

I noticed an old beast sketch of mine making the rounds on Tumblr. So I thought I would post a more current one.

 The Beast is one of my favorite Characters, and Character Designs, of all time! Glen Keane made him fierce, sympathetic, scary, and lovable all in one. 

This piece was done in my 5x5 sketchbook with Watercolors and Copic Markers.

Long live the Beast <3

Sorry, Not Sorry, Tumblr! #BeautyAndTheBeast

For the next couple of weeks or so, you’re definitely gonna see my Tumblr be covered in Beauty and the Beast posts. I’m not kidding you, I’m living for one of my all time favorite Disney story’s again and the fact that the live action rendition of it was flawless just makes me feel so alive. I love how they brought justice to all of the characters and giving them actual backstories, not to mention showing both interracial love and lgbtq characters (Josh Gad + LeFou + Being Gay + Actual characteristics and empathy = FUCKING AMAZING). They even got Emma (Tea Reading to Tea Pot) Thompson, SIR IAN FUCKING MCKELLEN, and OBI WAN KENOBI (I know his name is Ewen McGregor but I couldn’t help myself lol) as Lumiere! Then you got Stanley Tucci as a brand new character that loves Madame Garderobe (Opera singing Audra McDonald), and even Kevin Kline as Maurice and the beautiful Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette! PLUS, the fact that I need both Dan (Sexy Growling, gorgeous as a human being and beast-like-man singing one of my favorite songs!) Stevens and Luke (Hot D-Bag Beast Hurting, Glad karma got his ass) Evans in my life again! And of course how FLAWLESS EMMA WATSON WAS AS BELLE!!! HERMIONE GRANGER HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND IS BELLE!!!!!!!!!❤️❤️❤️🌹

I am playing Dewey in the new Ducktales TV show! DUCKTALES IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE TV SHOWS OF ALL TIME! I grew up on these characters. In elementary school, I would race home after school every day, make mac and cheese (I wasn’t lactose intolerant yet) and watch the Disney Afternoon at David and Jose Fernandez’s house in Riverdale. We watched the show, played the Nintendo game, re-watched the movie, all of it. My ringtone a few years ago was the Moon theme from the Ducktales video game which maybe one person ever got. So, I am incredibly excited to be a part of this show. A few hours ago, they announced the main cast and it’s magic. Scrooge McDuck- David Tennant, Huey- Danny Pudi, Dewey- Me, Louie- Bobby Moynihan, Webby Vanderquack- Kate Micucci, Launchpad McQuack- Beck Bennett, Mrs. Beakley- Toks Olagundoye and you will be pumped to find out who is playing the amazing guest cast for Donald Duck, Flintheart Glomgold, Gyro Gearloose, Duckworth, Gizmoduck, Magica DeSpell, Gladstone Gander, and Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys. I can’t wait for this thing to come out. Frank Angones and Matthew Youngberg are gonna make you smile. For now you can watch us all sing the theme song above. Woo-oo!

The Annie Awards are happening tonight, and almost all of my favorite cartoons - including my absolute favorite - have been nominated for big awards! In order to celebrate, I drew all of my favorite Disney XD characters hanging out together during the red carpet pre-show! ^-^

Oh my gosh, was it fun to design outfits for everyone! I gave Mabel very special accessories - since she loves to make her own outfits, and the Annies is a celebration of animated films and the like, she got creative and made herself a film-strip hairbow and film-reel earrings! I gave Dipper an alien-head lapel pin as well; I couldn’t resist…xD

Also, this is my first time drawing Wander and Sylvia, and it’s one of the few times I’ve ever drawn Star and Marco (I haven’t gotten around to uploading the rest of my SVTFOE fanart yet…lol), so I certainly hope I did them justice. ^^;

To Alex Hirsch and the ever-lovely Gravi-Team Falls - thank you so much, yet again, for creating a show as beautiful, thought-provoking, suspenseful, and heartwarming as Gravity Falls. It’s sad to see that this is the last year you’ll be eligible for the Annies, since the show’s been over for nearly a year, but you guys crafted the greatest and most satisfying series finale I have ever seen, and you MORE than deserve the nominations you earned this year, ESPECIALLY the ‘best writing’ nomination. Here’s to hoping you get at least one more Annie tonight! I’ll be rooting for you, and I’m sure plenty of other Fallers will be, too!

To Craig McCracken and the wonderful Wander Over Yonder crew - congratulations on all your nominations! It’s SO GREAT to see you up for Best Animated Series/Special for Children for the second year in a row! I’m so sorry that WOY was cancelled before you had the chance to finish telling your story; you guys deserve so much better. But what you did have time to give to the world was simply wonderful, and at least ASIFA recognizes your hard work! Wishing you all the best of luck tonight!

To Daron Nefcy and the amazing crew of Star vs. the Forces of Evil - my goodness, but you guys have been KILLING it! SVTFOE has turned out to be five times more intense and fun to watch than I originally thought it was after seeing the pilot two years ago! I can’t WAIT until the 'Star Bomb’ begins on Monday!

I’ll be posting this on Twitter as well, so hopefully, Alex, Craig, and Daron will see this! I hope everyone enjoys this! Now let’s (virtually, in most cases…xD) go to the Annies! :D

Today is Star Wars Day! Amidst all of my assignments I found time to do some fanart for one of my favorite stories in the world. :D

Since this IS the 4th of May, I thought it would only be appropriate to draw 4 representations of the force of the itself, from both the Clone Wars AND Star Wars Rebels, The Father, the Son, The Daughter and the Bendu (who might also represents the Force as an aspect of Nature).

all characters are © Lucasfilm and Disney

Be sure to also check out my Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/a3dkid/?hl=en

May the Force be with you :)

Avast there! It be too late to look away now, maties – now ye be faced with my newest Disneybound – “the Redhead” from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride! I had already thought it turned out pretty well when I first put everything on, but I didn’t expect the abundance of positive feedback I got for this look from guest and Cast Member alike today. I got a lot of compliments on my dress (a few even asked if I had made it, which sadly, no, I didn’t, it’s just an old corset on top of one of my new favorite dresses), kids were gawking at me, a Character Attendant got his line to cry out “We wants the Redhead!” as I walked by (I laughed so hard!!)…when I got to Pirates, the Cast Member there even was kind enough to put me in the front row of his boat (called the Mystique – such a lovely name!).

I also went to go see the new Dead Men Tell No Tales preview at the Sunset Showcase Theater – I admit that so far the film looks like it has way too many subplots gumming up the works like the last three did, but like the last three it does look like there’ll be some fun action, which is always good. There were also some costumes and props from the movie there too, including the Trident of Poseidon (the thing I’m reacting to).

This look is one of my new favorites of all time. When I was on the WDWCP, a good friend of mine would always tease me whenever we sailed past the dock scene on Pirates by jokingly replying to the pirates wanting the redhead, “You can have her!” and pointing at me…so it was such a joy to get to be this character! It just feels like a Bound I needed to try!

Don’t ye forget, ye scurvy dogs, to like and reblog…and have a magical day!

WALT PERGOY, Visual Development Paintings for The Jungle Book, 1964

The Jungle Book, (original 2D animated version) released in 1967, is one of the greatest Disney animated films of all time, and my favorite in many ways.

The animation, character designs, story, music and songs really make it shine. And of course, the heart in that the film is undeniable.

That said, the BG style, while suitable for the story and well executed is not particularly exciting or interesting to me. And it doesn’t reflect the graphic quality Milt Kahl got into the character designs.

If you compare this BG style to that of 101 Dalmatians, released 6 years earlier (1961), which is so harmonious with the Xerox lines and graphic shapes of the characters, The Jungle Book’s visual style falls a bit flat.

The story goes that Walt Disney didn’t approve of the graphic BG style of 101 Dalmatians, or that of The Sword In The Stone. And around that time, Walt Peregoy (who styled both former films) ceased to work at Disney. Peregoy’s influence was mostly buried on the 1967 film.

Disney preferred a BG style that was more realistic and thought the audience could better connect with the characters and story with that realism.

I can see his argument, but I don’t agree. When I watch 101 Dalmatians, I can’t imagine a different BG style; it so perfectly supports the story, and does not take away from the emotion. And the tone of The Jungle Book is not so different…

When I look at these Peregoy concepts for Jungle Book, I can’t help but wonder what the film would be like with a more exciting and interesting BG style. I love the film as is, but I do wonder.

Feast your eyes on these paintings and imagine…

One annoying thing about being from New Orleans is that everyone assumes that when you say your favorite Disney princess movie is princess and the frog ppl assume that it’s just cuz it’s set in New Orleans. I mean, yeah it’s kinda lit that it’s set in my hometown but bitch, have you SEEN princess and the frog??? The music score??? The characters??? The animation??? It’s fuckin incredible and criminally underrated. Why do ppl not talk about that movie anymore it was a MASTERPIECE.

I was a huge fan of Recess, and I remember going to my local theater finding to my surprise window stickers of the Recess characters having no idea of the context. At the time to me it just seemed like a random coincidence that my theater had decorations related to one of my favorite shows so I just thought that was cool all on its own.

Mind you, this is before I ever had internet, and word about films did not really get around until you were sitting in that movie theater, and saw the previews. I was not ready for when this trailer played, and everything started to make sense. I almost couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

In that moment I was the hypest 10 year old.

“I’m a 17 year old girl, and my favorite Disney movie of all time is Brother Bear. I love the story, the characters, the animation, the songs…everything! Sadly, I don’t feel comfortable telling people Brother Bear is my favorite, since I told a friend one day and she snapped back stating ‘why isn’t Mulan your favorite’, or other more popular Disney movies. I love a lot of Disney movies, but Brother Bear is , and always will be, my favorite Disney movie.”

Tada!  Like promised, here’s the whole painting.  I know Lilo isn’t technically a princess, but I don’t care.  Stitch is one of my all-time favorite characters and I really wanted to do a Yzma with him.  So there :P ‘Yzma is Best Princess’ # 18.  This one took a bit longer to do because it’s hard to get the right intense blue on Stitch.  That bugger took something like 10 careful layers and four different mediums.  Watercolor, inks, pencils and gouache.

She is available on etsy in print form and the original.

🔮30 Days of Witchcraft Challenge: Day 19🔮

Create a spell inspired by a book, film, game, or TV show

“Give Me My Wings” Self Empowerment Spell Jar

This is a rather personal spell for me as I recently ended an unhealthy relationship and have learned to trust myself and feel the self-empowerment and love I deserve. This spell jar incorporates green witchcraft, crystal witchcraft, pop culture witchcraft, sigil witchcraft, and music witchcraft. The objective is to channel your own inner strength to manifest self-empowerment using Maleficent (my all-time favorite Disney character) as your inspiration.

Supplies:

  • 1 medium or large Jar
  • 1 part Basil
  • 1 part Bay leaf
  • 1 part Rosemary
  • 1 Cinnamon stick/ground cinnamon
  • 1 part Fennel
  • 1 Amethyst crystal
  • 1 Azurite crystal
  • 1 Garnet crystal
  • 2 Black feathers (ones from a craft store will do) or image of wings
  • 1 Pink candle
  • 1 Purple candle
  • Matches
  • Self-Empowerment sigil
  • Your favorite incense
  • *Image of Maleficent with her wings cut to fit inside jar lid (optional)

Procedure:

Gather your supplies. Ground yourself. Enchant crystals and the sigil with intent to awaken inner strength and self-empowerment. Go on Youtube or iTunes and play Wings for Marie, Part 2 by Tool in the background (optional as some of the lyrics are used in this spell).  The song is incredibly meditative and carries the message of self-worth and strength.  If you don’t know the song, listen to it before you cast the spell and get familiar with the rhythm and lyrics and decide whether or not it would aid in casting the spell. 

Begin by burning incense and saying:

“Strength within me, I call upon you. Your manifestation is long overdue”.

Place herbs, crystal, and sigil into the jar and say:

“The time has come for me to soar. My strength and power I can no longer ignore.”

Light the 2 candles, saying:

“None of them can even hold a candle up to me.
Blinded by choice, these hypocrites won’t see.”

Place feathers or image of wings into jar and close it.  Seal the jar with the candle wax and repeat:

“It’s time now. My time now. Give me my… Give me my wings!”

until the jar is completely sealed. Blow the candles out and allow yourself to feel the power and strength within you grow. Place the jar on a windowsill or near a computer to hold the charge. 

*Anytime you need a confidence boost, hold the jar and feel its energy run through you.

I guess this is the part where I scream? Anyway, I wrote a guide to the Disney Halloween Recruiters last year, but I’m writing a new one along with this journal post because there have been quite a few changes from last year’s show format. I’ll also run down the basics again for anyone who missed it!

Also, sorry for the varying photo quality. My phone is really fickle about lighting and a lot of photos taken later in the day look more washed out because of the sun. My phone also thinks “zoom” is a synonym for “mosaic”.
