Week 17 - Cinderella

Cinderella is a 1950 American animated film produced by Walt Disney and based on the fairy tale "Cendrillon" by Charles Perrault. Twelfth in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, the film had a limited release on February 15, 1950 by RKO Radio Pictures. Directing credits go to Clyde Geronimi, Hamilton Luske and Wilfred Jackson. Songs were written by Mack David, Jerry Livingston, and Al Hoffman. Songs in the film include "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes", "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo", "So This Is Love", "Sing Sweet Nightingale", "The Work Song", and "Cinderella".

Wow, even I suprised myself a bit with this one! I started this right after Tarzan, so I thought I might get tired of drawing halfway through. But I guess I sort of got myself on a roll, since I took a lot of time doing this one's background. In case you're wondering, it's supposed to be a part of the ballroom where Cinderella first dances with Prince Charming in the film. Such a pretty scene!

Week 16 - Tarzan

Tarzan is a 1999 American animated feature film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures on June 18. The thirty-seventh film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics, it is based on the story Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and is the only major motion picture version of the story Tarzan property to be animated.
It was the last bona fide hit before the Disney slump of the early 2000s grossing $171,091,819 domestically and $448,191,819 worldwide, outgrossing its predecessors Hercules (1997) and Mulan (1998). To date, it is the last film based on the character Tarzan to have had a theatrical release. At the time of its release, its production budget of $130 million made it the most expensive animated film ever made, until topped by Disney's own $140 million Treasure Planet in 2002. It was also the first Disney animated feature to open at #1 since Pocahontas. This was the last major box office success of the Disney Renaissance.
So this one was really late... I feel bad, even though I know not many people have interest in my blog, because I feel that I have a... responsibility to finish these blogs on time. Especially since my Disney savings money had to be spent on the new car :c I know we're still going, but I was on such a roll...

Sorry I'm Late!

Okay, so any of you that follow my blog may have realized there was no post last weekend.

 I'm so sorry that it got this late, but I totally lost track of time! Before I knew it, it was already Wednesday, so I decided to just leave Tarzan for this weekend, along with this week's post, Cinderella.

Right now I'm working on the first drawing, so either tonight or early tomorrow I'll have them both up. Please be patient with me- it's been a rough couple of weeks!

                                               With love, 
                                                           CircuitGirl <3

Week 15 - The Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid is a 1989 American animated film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale of the same name. Distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, the film was originally released to theaters on November 14, 1989 and is the twenty-eighth film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, and the first of the Disney Renaissance. During its initial release, The Little Mermaid earned $84 million in North American box office revenue, and has to date earned $211 million in total lifetime gross. After the success of the 1988 Disney/Amblin film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Little Mermaid is given credit for breathing life back into the art of animated feature films after a string of critical or commercial failures that dated back to the early 1980s. It also marked the start of the era known as the Disney Renaissance.

This week has definitely been a better one for me. For those of you who follow the blog or watch my dA account, you'll be happy to hear that I finally got a new car! It took almost 2 weeks, but we found one. It's not brand new or anything, but it's in really really good condition. So because I'm in a much better mood, I decided to put a lot more effort into the WDM this week. Ariel is my favorite of the Disney princesses, so I tried to draw her as best I could. 

Next week's movie is Tarzan, so keep a look out!

Week 14 - Treasure Planet

Treasure Planet is a 2002 animated science fiction film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, and released by Walt Disney Pictures on November 27, 2002. The 43rd animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics, the film is a science fiction adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's adventure novel Treasure Island and was the first film to be released simultaneously in regular and IMAX theaters. The film employs a novel technique of hand-drawn 2D traditional animation set atop 3D computer animation.

This week's isn't too detailed- if you checked my dA journal, you know that my car was stolen, so I've been pretty distracted this week :/

Next week is The Little Mermaid- my favorite Disney princess!
