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.

anonymous asked:

what or who are your inspirations? cause when i first saw your "squip enters" animatic it kind of gave me "archie" vibes ^^ not saying that you don't have a unique style! just curious if you have people you look up to

The most huge inspirations I have come from the things I saw as a child.

Like Disney renaissance movies,  the little mermaid, the beauty and the beast, Aladdin ecc
(The little mermaid is my favorite Disney movie of all time honestly)
I love her

Then there are manga and anime obviously. When I was a kid there were lots of cool anime broadcasted in tv and my favorites are the ones that I still like and influence a lot my style. Like Ranma ½ is one of my top favorite manga (and anime just because I love the italian dub actors) I love Rumiko Takahashi’s sense of humor, the body language of the characters is so entertaining, each character is memorable and hilarious.


Then City Hunter for my kinky side because as I said before, I’m a sucker for stupid jokes and sexual innuendos and that manga is hilariously full of all that idiotic stuff and I love it. Plus the drawings are really cool too!


Then Fullmetal Alchemist (duh, Jeremy’s hair rings any bell?)  I don’t think I need to show it, if you don’t know it I’ll feel very very old and really really sad.

Then from the modern era there’s a comic book italian artist, Mirka Andolfo (that actually works for dc comics too) She has a mixture of cartoon and american comic style that I love

Then OBVIOUSLY MY FAVORITE COMIC ARTIST OF ALL TIME
Alessandro Barbucci, another italian but works mostly for french comics 
(I don’t know if you’re familiar with W.I.T.C.H. and Monster Allergy, but he’s THAT guy)

I went to a convention I didn’t have the money to go to, just because I found out he was there xDDD
That says how much I love his work


There’s a lot more that I like but I guess this are the ones that really influence my style.
Sorry for the long post

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

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit (and Mickey Mouse)


I love Oswald, he’s one of my favorite characters of all time qwq 

and He’s the reason I’ve started to like Mickey more and more as well owo 

Cuz of Epic Mickey, which is one of my favorite games OwO


I’m a huge cartoon freak, especially when it comes to old cartoons ;w; (that could be the reason I like Bendy and the Ink Machine so much owo)

anonymous asked:

I love Tangled too and I was wondering why it's your favorite?

I was nearly finished writing this but then accidentally refreshed the page and I had to start all over again, but I need to get this out. It might feel a little rushed but I wrote this down before and I wanted to keep it shorter this time.

- Eugene and Rapunzel are both amazing characters. Eugene is one of my favorite Disney characters ever, with his charm and funny personality, yet his backstory touches me every time. The way he deals with it really played with the ‘what’s good and bad’ question, and his development is amazing. 
It’s difficult for me to love or even accept a female lead in any movie or series because they get portrayed badly most of the time, but I absolutely love Rapunzel. She’s a little clumsy and too excited about everything, but yet badass and cute and gets things done. Bless her. 

- Maximus and Pascal are the best sidekicks. I love the relationship and development between Maximus and Eugene, and Pascal is all the sassy cuteness you need in this movie. 

- One of the most quotable movies ever. I feel like there’s a quote for everything and I use them all the time.

- Onto an important part. Mother Gothel is the best Disney villain because she is so painfully realistic. As someone with a toxic/mentally abusive/narcissistic mom, I recognize a lot of the things she says and the way she acts- how she tries to look good and protecting while in fact all she does is abuse her power to get what she wants. Now I can elaborate on this but it’s pretty simple. Disney shows how mothers can be, and Mother Gothel says many things that are very realistic as to what toxic mothers say in real life. Especially Mother Knows Best Reprise is very good in this (which, by the way, is one of the best villain songs Disney ever made ngl).

- Another thing, Disney shows that saying ‘I love you’ doesn’t have to mean it’s true. It’s something people with toxic parents struggle a lot with. Mother Gothel seems to take good care of Rapunzel and wanting to protect her, as if Rapunzel should be grateful. Rapunzel actually sings about this.This song means way more than the fact she can’t get out of the tower. It’s pointing at the manipulation again. Mother Gothel has always said she loved Rapunzel and always made it look like she did, like she was the good one It leaves Rapunzel with guilt which is shown at the end when Mother Gothel falls and Rapunzel still tries to save her- despite her knowing that she’s been bad all the time. 

- Next to this, they also quickly discuss the thought of ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ during I’ve Got A Dream. Again a masterful work of music and a great thought behind it. Eugene’s part is so good as well- most of the time, ‘wanting money’ is something evil, but it’s not this time. I’m really glad this is included. 

- Most of the times with Disney movies, there’s one or a few songs I don’t like. I love all the songs in Tangled, got nothing else to say about that. They’re just terrific.

- I got to mention, the aesthetics of this movie. Don’t tell me those lanterns aren’t beautiful to you. Everything about this movie, the colors, the scenery, the music, the sounds, the vibes, the animations… it’s all so pleasing and I can’t get enough.

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

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!!!!!!!!!❤️❤️❤️🌹

Sorry for the lack of character art, but I’ve found a new love for exterior background art. Never ever thought I’d say that lol.

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…

(Top character line art is by Milt Kahl)

I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

And there is no word in the world that can define how I feel right now. It was perfect. A perfect mix of nostalgia, humor, adventure, excitement,…
I was sitting there feeling 8 years old again, back when I would go watch the films with my parents, it felt so good. I felt so free, I was flying (still am). Without a care in the world. Seeing my best friends on screen again, was a blessing.
Captain Jack, my first love, made me smile and giggle constantly. Johnny is magic. His one-liners are golden. But he was also tough and determind. My favorite captain. It was so wonderful. Irreverent, cunning, the best of the best.
Captain Barbossa was sublime. My god he has come so far and the side I saw of him today was truly amazing and touching. He made me cry
Captain Salazar: villains that have a fragile side to them are the most interesting ones and that’s exactly what he is. Javier plays him so perfectly. One of my favorite caracters of all time already!
The Turners: made me cry

conclusion: this movie was all I needed, all I could ever ask for. I’m still in shock, I think I need a few days to let it all settle. The story, the new and old characters, the ending, was pure brilliance. This is what it is all about. This movie gave me so much fuel so much energy so much nostalgia. 10000/10 would recommand. Go see it and be ready to enter an improved version of life

I mentioned in passing that we were in LA visiting a few friends in my tags…and since I never really post about our trips…I thought why not actually talk about this one! We spent two days at Disneyland, I wish it could be more but we leave for Hawaii tomorrow so we really need to get to packing and getting ready for our flight. Either way I’m so happy for the time we got to spend in Disneyland together. Unlike our honeymoon we spent a lot more time with Lu exploring and she was actually able to have fun and enjoy the park with us and our friends. And speaking of friends….Gen (@freckledlittleloves) and I got to bond over all the rides we couldn’t go on due to a little thing called pregnancy. After a whole day of only being able to ride “Its a Small World” the train was almost thrilling, hah. But all in all I had a lot of fun eating everything available to me, drinking all the non-alcoholic margaritas I could, and just spending time with my family. My favorite moment of this vacation so far was Lu getting to meet Minnie Mouse, aka one of her favorite characters to grace Disney Jr. I was honestly a little bit nervous that a life size Minnie would terrify her but that wasn’t the case and she even got to hug Minnie. I doubt she’ll remember it when she’s older but at the very least she has some great pictures to look back on from this trip.

Much Love,

Announcement!

If you haven’t already guessed from the gif, I have written a three part mini fic series. With your new favorite Disney Prince.

Love you guys! XOXOX

Paige! 

The game is over, and now I’ve won. Now it’s time to start the fun.

This journey with Gravity Falls has been one of a lifetime. I’ve never been so invested in a cartoon series such as this one. The mystery, the humor, the story, the drama, and above all the characters has sealed this as one of my all time favorite cartoons. I’m incredibly scared and excited for what’s in store monday and you can bet I’ll never forgot how awesome of a cartoon this is. 

Time to take back the falls!

Gravity Falls is property of Alex Hirsch and Disney.

anonymous asked:

They probably figured kids would piss themselves if they saw it.

…Anon I’m really sorry, but I’m gonna go on a rant here, so bear with me

Starting off with an anecdote, when I was five, I was watching the show Catscratch and saw this episode where one of the characters turns into a broccoli monster (because apparently he was allergic to it-it’s become rather infamous but anyways). This, safe to say, scared the ever-loving SHIT out of me, having cats myself, being a cat fan, it being my first time seeing something like that…you get the idea. 

I wasn’t exactly easy to scare growing up, so when something scared me, it was going to be something like this:

THIS is Peter Meechum from Generator Rex-He fucking gave me nightmares back in the day because of his ability (zombifying people through touch-said people got a bunch of green growths on them and a nuclear bomb was considered at one point to kill him because of his ability and how dangerous it was).

Also, these:

(Two more things, but anyways)

Stuff like this obviously scared me, but I watched again later on and better able to handle it. For an example, I now draw Meechum regularly and he’s one of my favorite EVOs on the show for the very ability that used to scare me so badly.

And another thing? These things, frightening as they were, sparked my curiosity and even aided in me becoming so appreciative of creature and character design, particularly unconventional designs. They helped me get more interested in animation and design as a whole (hell-even science on some levels). 

Things like Star Vs., Gravity Falls, Adventure Time, Over The Garden Wall, even some Disney scenes-those all have moments that terrified kids, whether it’s the Beast and his glowing eyes in OTGW or the Shapeshifter in Gravity Falls, or the Demon Cat or the Lich in Adventure Time. May be frightening, but they do help with setting the stakes high and (in some cases) hammering in the severity of the situation.

For me, the fact that something terrifying is IN a “kids show” is a sign that the staff of the show don’t underestimate kids intelligence and maturity. When it doesn’t, it’s a sign that it doesn’t want to take risks and may have a “please everyone” viewpoint. And at worst? DOESN’T respect said intelligence and maturity. 

And this not being included, Steven just befriending it and causing it to bubble itself, just shows me that the Crewniverse simply didn’t seem to want to take any risks or didn’t know what the hell they were doing when it came to the arc.

ALSO, they had already showed some shit like Pearl getting stabbed, the prototypes for the Cluster (including one who was screaming for Rose apparently), multiple Gem monsters, Steven getting eaten, Steven nearly getting drowned and smashed by Lapis and Peridot, Steven turning into a cat monster when his shapeshifting abilities go out of control, FRYBO, GEM SHARDS, Steven nearly aging himself to death, and plenty of other things I’m sure I missed

Crewniverse failed hard if they really thought they shouldn’t include it because “it would scare children”. 

I really don’t think “it was going to scare kids” was the reason for it not being included. 

My part of a collab I’m doing over on dA involving the Disney movies.

I got assigned Atlantis and well here was the end result.

Love this move so much. I love the art style and well Milo is one of my all time favorite male characters in Disney. (I have two characters named after him if that says anything.)

So yeah. I love this underrated movie and I was honored to do this for the collab.

To all my followers and people who love this movie just as much as I do, this is for you guys.

Hope you enjoy!

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”.
