Week 4 - Hercules



Hercules is a 1997 American animated film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The thirty-fifth animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, the film was directed by Ron Clements and John Musker. The film is based on the legendary Greek mythology hero Heracles (known in the film by his Roman name, Hercules), the son of Zeus, in Greek mythology.

I wanted to add a lot more to this pic, but I actually ended up rushing it, and Meg and Phil wouldn't fit :c But I still really like the way it turned out!

Week 3 - Sleeping Beauty


Sleeping Beauty is a 1959 American animated film produced by Walt Disney and based on the fairy tale "La Belle au bois dormant" byCharles Perrault. It was released to theatres on January 29, 1959 by Buena Vista Distribution.

So, starting this week, I thought I'd do the rest of my pics in the actual style of their movie. Not only will it look more authentic and recognizable if it's drawn like the movie is, it also gives me practice in the various Disney artists' styles.

Week 2 - Oliver and Company


Oliver & Company is a 1988 American animated film in which a homeless kitten named Oliver joins a gang of dogs to survive on the 1980s New York City streets. The film was produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and became the twenty-seventh animated feature released in the Walt Disney Animated Classics seriesThe film is inspired by Charles Dickens' novel Oliver Twist, which has been adapted many other times for the screen. In this version, Oliver is a cat, Fagin's gang is made up of dogs (one of which is Dodger), and Sikes is a loan shark.

Let me start out by saying that I NEVER draw animals, lol. Although I'm kind of proud of my first attempt, I know there are tons of artists that can draw better Disney-style dogs than me. So please don't be rude and tell me what I already know, lol.

Week 1 - Aladdin


     I decided to post a day early this week, since I finished this up on Tuesday.

     Disney's Aladdin (1992). My favorite character was always the magic carpet (for some reason he reminded me of my dog when I was a kid) so I had to add him in to the picture. Aladdin was the 31st animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, and was part of the Disney film era known as the Disney Renaissance. The film was directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, and is based on the Arab folktale of Aladdin and the magic lamp from One Thousand and One Nights.

     Next week is Oliver and Company!
