Odette! Swan princess! I used to have all their VHS’s, and we were crazy mad about her. I watched this back in the spring, and I had a revelation: The Swan Princess was so SEXIST! Odette does shit-all when she’s captured, especially in the sequels! Prince Derek has to go save her ass from the bad guy every time. And her animal friends’ jokes are so corny. :C I can’t believe how much my opinion changed about her.
My mom’s always after my sister and I because we’re always drawing ‘sexy demon ladies’ and we never make nice pretty angel ladies. This is how I compensate - I draw angels like this once in a while, and when mom wants to see the new stuff she’s completely pleased because she sees what she wants even though it’s not exactly the way she wants it.
This is something that I do when I have trouble getting a sketch out. It gives me plenty of poses and plenty of practice, and next time I’m having trouble getting an idea onto paper I have one of these little ladies to help. I hate recycling the same poses, it’s never a good idea to have the same arms-to-the-sides pictures because your content will be flaccid and unappealing.
This is my character, Winifred Willows, or more commonly “Fred.” She was based off an imaginary friend that I had in elementary, and she’s one of the most popular things that I draw. She’s got a kick ass storyline and one day I’m gonna sit down and draw it all out, man. One day.
