Week 38 - James and the Giant Peach

James and the Giant Peach is a 1996 musical fantasy film directed by Henry Selick, based on the 1961 novel of the same name by Roald Dahl. It was produced by Tim Burton and Denise Di Novi. The film is a combination of live action and stop-motion animation.

I feel like I could have done a little better on this one, but at the same time I still like it ^_^ Wow have I been busy lately! in the past week I've had 2 commissions, AND I've been working on my comic! I really want to try and get the comic on a weekly page update basis, but for right now I don't know if that'll happen (lol).

Week 37 - Enchanted

Enchanted is a 2007 American fantasy-musical film, produced and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures in association with Barry Sonnenfeld and Josephson Entertainment. Written by Bill Kelly and directed by Kevin Lima, the film stars Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Timothy Spall, Idina Menzel, Rachel Covey, and Susan Sarandon. The plot focuses on Giselle, an archetypal Disney Princess, who is forced from her traditional animated world of Andalasia into the live-action world of New York City. The film is both an homage to, and a self-parody of, conventional Walt Disney Animated Classics, making numerous references to Disney's past and future works through the combination of live action filmmaking, traditional animation and computer-generated imagery. It heralds the return of traditional animation to a Disney feature film after the company's decision to move entirely to computer animation in 2004.

Wow! A post that's actually on time! (I think I've actually made this joke before, lol) But here's week 37! I'm actually really surprised at how quick time seems to be moving until the trip! Today I have 176 days left- much smaller than the 400-something I started out with :3

Week 36 - Lady and the Tramp

Lady and the Tramp is a 1955 American animated film produced by Walt Disney and released to theaters on June 22, 1955, by Buena Vista Distribution. The 15th animated film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, it was the first animated feature filmed in the CinemaScope widescreen film process. The story centers on a female American Cocker Spaniel named Lady who lives with a refined, upper middle-class family, and a male stray mutt called the Tramp. A direct-to-video sequel, Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure, was released in 2001.

I usually don't like to draw the characters in the same positions as on the movie covers, but for this film I made an exception. I mean, what other scene really sticks out in this movie other than the spaghetti scene? It's a classic!

Week 35 - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is a 1996 American animated drama film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released to theaters on June 21, 1996 by Walt Disney Pictures. The 34th animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, the film is loosely based on Victor Hugo's novel of the same name. The plot centers on Quasimodo, the deformed bellringer of Notre Dame and his struggle to gain acceptance into society. The film is directed by Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale and produced by Don Hahn. It received a G rating by the Motion Picture Association of America, and was rated U by the British Board of Film Classification in the UK. Despite these ratings, the film is considered to be one of Disney's darkest animated motion pictures similar to films such as The Black Cauldron.

Since I was a kid, I've always loved Esmerelda ^_^ I thought she was so pretty when I was little, and I wanted to be just like her, lol. I've been really busy working on my comic lately, so I'm trying to get caught up again here D: plus, I got laid off from my job (bummer...) so my Disney savings is at a stand still right now :c But I'm not giving up!
