Week 26 - Robin Hood

Robin Hood is an 1973 American animated film produced by the Walt Disney Productions, first released in the United States on November 8, 1973. The 21st animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, the film is based on the legend of Robin Hood, but uses anthropomorphic animals instead of people.

Horrible logo is horrible. I got a little lazy with the logo on this one, mostly because I'm terrible at drawing animals. I think this one turned out alright, but not as good as my usual posts. Still, I'm excited because now I'm back on track with my Disney savings!

Week 25 - Up

Up is a 2009 American computer-animated comedy-adventure film produced by Pixar, distributed by Walt Disney Pictures and presented in Disney Digital 3-D. The film premiered on May 29, 2009 in North America and opened the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, becoming the first animated and 3D film to do so. The film was director Pete Docter's second film, the first being 2001's Monsters, Inc., and features the voices of Edward AsnerChristopher PlummerBob Peterson, and Jordan Nagai. It is Pixar's tenth feature film and the studio's first to be presented in Disney Digital 3-D, and is accompanied in theaters and DVD releases by the short film Partly Cloudy.

I'm really starting to get excited for the trip! I still haven't paid it off yet, but I'm just realizing that I'm nearing the halfway mark of my whole Weekly Disney Magic project! Week 30 actually happens to be the same week as I and my husband's first anniversary, so as we're celebrating that we'll also be halfway on our way to Florida! Another good thing is that I think I'm finally going to be able to get back on track with my savings soon- I really hope so, because I've been worried about it for a while.

See you next week for Robin Hood!

Trying Something New

I'm not completely sure how to use it, but I've made a technorati account in hopes of bringing attention to my blog. I've also started writing a comic book! Hopefully these new things will bring about good tidings, especially when it comes to what I do with my free time.

My Disney savings is also slowly getting back on track- I'm not exactly where I was before the car was stolen, but if things work out right then I can at least pay off the balance for my trip! (hopefully I can save some extra for souvenirs as well!)

Until next post,

Week 24 - Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast is a 1991 American animated musical-fantasy film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. The thirtieth film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series and the third film of theDisney Renaissance period, the film is based on the fairy tale La Belle et la BĂȘte by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont and uses some ideas from the 1946 film of the same name. The film centers around a prince who is transformed into a Beast and a young woman named Belle whom he imprisons in his castle. To become a prince again, the Beast must love Belle and win her love in return, or he will remain a Beast forever.

I got a little lazy with the logo for this one- sorry for that. I really didn't want to do the scene with Belle in the ballroom, since most of the movie covers and advertisements show that scene, so I did one of the rose- which is really what the story is about, to begin with. Let me know what you think!

Week 23 - Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland is a 1951 American animated feature produced by Walt Disney and based primarily on Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with a few additional elements from Through the Looking-Glass. Thirteenth in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, the film was released in New York City and London on July 29, 1951 by RKO Radio Pictures. The film features the voices of Kathryn Beaumont (who also voiced Wendy Darling in the 1953 Disney Peter Pan) as Alice, and Ed Wynn as the Mad Hatter.

This week's was late again, I know. But I like the background that I made for this one, and I think if you look at Alice you can start to see that after 23 weeks I really am improving! Saving up has been pretty slow lately, and maybe that's the reason my motivation for drawing these on time is dwindling. I'm going to try and do my best to finish what I've started- I'm determined to go to Florida this October! Wish me luck, please!
