Character 4 - Shan Yu

"Stop me? He invited me. By building his wall he challenged my strength. Well, I'm here to play his game." 
-Shan Yu, Mulan (1998)

Another Disney villain! There's actually a lot of them on my list- one from almost every Disney animated movie. In other news this week, I'm moving! I'm really excited, because Sunday I'll be able to draw the next sketch in my new place! Hopefully we can settle into this one for a while!

Next time, Pascal!

Character 3 - Hopper

"You let one ant stand up to us, then they all might stand up! Those puny little ants outnumber us a hundred to one and if they ever figure that out there goes our way of life!" 
-Hopper, A Bug's Life (1998)

So I'm going to be adding quotes to the posts now, to make them a bit more interesting! Also, I've decided that at the end of every month, I'll be making a collage of all the month's sketches and posting it to my deviantART page (this way I won't have to overload it with posts every other day!)

Next time, Shan Yu!

Character 2 - Mr. Incredible

"Of course I have a secret identity. I don't know a single superhero who doesn't. Who wants the pressure of being super all the time?" 
-Mr. Incredible, The Incredibles (2004)

Mr. Incredible! 
The Incredibles is actually one of my husband's favorite Disney movies (probably his favorite Pixar movie, at least), so I'm sure he's really happy about this one!

I'm in the process of making a Walt Disney World Vacation countdown- I'll post pictures as soon as it's finished!

Next time, Hopper!

Character 1 - Pocahontas

"What I love most about rivers is, you can't step in the same river twice." 
-Pocahontas, Pocahontas (1995)

Hooray! The first sketch for my new Disney Magic Countdown is Pocahontas! I started out with something simple, just a waist-up sketch. Perhaps in the future they'll be more or less detailed and/or different sizes. I don't really plan on adding any backgrounds to these, at the moment (but that may change!).

Anywho- how this is going to work: every other day I'm going to be uploading a sketch (I do have a full list ready). There's going to be some done on the computer, some in pencil, some with color, and some without- every sketch will be something different! There's going to be 215 drawings in total by the end of the countdown.

Next time: Mr. Incredible!

New Countdown: Disney Character Extravaganza!

So I've had some time to think about it (it didn't take very long!) and I've decided what I'm going to do for this trip's countdown. Every other day, beginning on Saturday, January 25, I'm going to do a sketch of a different Disney character!

Keep in Mind, these aren't ALL of the Disney characters- they're all animated characters, and most of them are from the movies (a few are from Disney Channel shows). Also, they're mostly the main characters, except for a few of the smaller characters that I happen to be particularly fond of :)

By the way, I actually hadn't realized how many views my blog still gets- I haven't touched this thing in over a year! Thanks so much for coming to look at my art all this time- sorry I've been a ghost for so long! Now that I'm back, though, I'll keep it well-updated with nice pretty Disney images and artwork.

Stay tuned for the first sketch this Saturday!

Time for Another Trip!

So, guess who's going back to Walt Disney World?

I'm working on some ideas for new entries in this blog counting down to my next trip in 2015! I'm thinking a blog with a sketch of a different Disney character every other day. Of course it's over 400 days until I'm planning to go (April 2015), so I have a lot of sketching to do!

Also, I'm going to be touching up the blog in the meantime, to clean it up. I realize it's starting to look a little tacky, haha. Perhaps a more simple theme, with a sharper look?

Anyone who's liked my older Disney sketches, subscribe to the blog! I'm going to come up with the list and start posting very soon! I'm so excited!
