Character 33 - The Bride

"Til... death do us part..."
- Constance Hatchaway, the Bride, The Haunted Mansion (Disneyland, 1969)

For this one, there were a lot of different brides to choose from. I ended up picking my favorite one- the 90's Disneyland bride before they replaced her with the newest bride, Constance. The Haunted Mansion is my favorite Disney ride, and the bride is my favorite ghost (alongside the Ghost Host, of course)!

Also, I am super proud of this one. Without a doubt, this is my best sketch yet!

Next time, Snow White!

Character 32 - The Mayor of Halloweentown

"The king of Halloween has been blown to smithereens! Skeleton Jack is now a pile of dust!"
- The Mayor, The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

My first claymation character! I'm really proud of this one, but not as proud as I am of the next one... :)

Next time, The Bride!

Character 31 - Princess Kidagakash Nedakh

"A thousand years ago, the streets were lit and our people did not have to scavenge for food at the end of a crumbling city!"
- Princess Kidagakash Nedakh, Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)

Right after Milo comes his lovely wife Kida! It's a shame that this movie didn't do so well with the critics, but it still holds a very special place in my heart.

Next time, The Mayor of Halloweentown!

Character 30 - Milo James Thatch

"You think it's some kind of a diamond. I thought it was some kind of a battery. But we're both wrong. It's their life force. That crystal is the only thing keeping these people alive. You take that away, and they'll die."
- Milo James Thatch, Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)

One of my favorite Disney guys- I always like the nerdy ones :)

Next time, Kida!

Character 29 - Ursula

"I can't stand it! It's too easy! The child is in love with a human. And not just any human. A prince!"
- Ursula, The Little Mermaid (1989)

Another for the villains section.

Next time, Milo Thatch!

Character 28 - Meeko

Meeko, Pocahontas (1995)

I guess there wouldn't be a quote for Meeko, since he can't speak! This is the third Pocahontas character, though- yay!

Next time, Ursula!

Character 27 - The Three Good Fairies: Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather

"But you can't sew! And she's never cooked!"
"Oh, it's simple."
"All you do is follow the book!"
- Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather, Sleeping Beauty (1959)

Another triple character post! Now that I take a closer look, they are kind of similar to the last trio, aren't they? (red, green, and blue!)

Next time, Meeko!

Character 26 - Hercules

"You know, when I was a kid, I would have given anything to be exactly like everybody else."
- Hercules, Hercules (1997)

Another one of my better ones! I'm slowly (very slowly) catching up to where I should be. I'll try to go on a rampage this weekend and get a bunch done.

Next time, Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather!

Character 25 - Nani

"I'll tell you what. If you promise not to fight anymore, I promise not to yell at you, except on special occasions."
- Nani, Lilo & Stitch (2002)

I'll tell you what, Lilo & Stitch's art style is probably one of the hardest to capture out of any Disney movie. Maybe it's because I'm used to drawing angular, bony (lol) characters, but it was really hard for me to do this one!

Next time, Hercules!

Character 24 - Kronk

"Take him out of town and finish the job now!"
"What about dinner?"
"Kronk, this is kind of important."
"How about dessert?"
"Well, I suppose there's time for dessert."
"And coffee?"
"All right. A quick cup of coffee. Then take him out of town and finish the job!"
-Kronk (talking to Yzma), The Emporer's New Groove (2000)

Kronk, our lovable goofball. I would love to try his specialty Spinach Puffs.

Next time, Nani!

Character 23 - Pongo and Perdita

"Perdita, darling, are you alright?"
"Oh, of course, dear. After all, dogs were having puppies long before our time."
- Pongo and Perdita, 101 Dalmations (1961)

Another double character sketch- who could draw one of these two without the other?

Next time, Kronk!

Character 22 - Prince Eric

"Isn't this great? The salty sea air, the wind blowing in your face. Aaah, the Perfect day to be at sea!"
- Prince Eric, The Little Mermaid (1989)

The first sketch of a character not in his/her normal outfit. I've always liked this scene with Eric in it, so I really wanted to use it for the sketch!

Next time, Pongo and Perdita!

Character 21 - Captain John Smith

"Look, don't do this. Savage is just a word, uh, you know. For people who are uncivilized."
- John Smith, Pocahontas (1995)

Maybe not one of my better sketches, but definitely an improvement from when I first started WDM!

Next time, Prince Eric!

Character 20 - Buzz Lightyear

"Locla law enforcement! It's about time you got here. I'm Buzz Lightyear, Space Ranger, Universe Protection Unit. My ship has crash-landed here by mistake."
- Buzz Lightyear, Toy Story (1995)

Another for Pixar! And finally the other half of the dynamic toy duo!

Next time, John Smith!

Character 19 - Helga Sinclair

"Nothing personal."
- Helga Sinclair, Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)

I'm starting to catch up! I have a whole bunch of sketches to post today- though I'm not completely back on track. Be patient with me, though!

Also, today is my 3rd wedding anniversary! Hard to believe that 3 years ago we were married, and not long after I began the first WDM blog!

Next time, Buzz Lightyear!

A Short Break

I probably should have posted this a few days ago, BEFORE I stopped sketching, but WDM will be taking a short break from sketches. It's only for a little while- I'm in no way canceling the blog!

However, when I do come back, I'm going to post all of the characters that I'm missing during the break (aka a bunch of post spam!), so my end date isn't changing!

I just ask that you please be patient with me- everything's fine!- but these next couple of days are really full because of school and work. To put it frankly, I have an essay due next Thursday, a quiz this Thursday, and I have a project for work that I need to get done ASAP!

See you all real soon!
