We saw princess and the frog the other day (super cute movie) and my youngest cousin then requested this pic. It was funny because in the middle of [link]
she came over and I told her I could draw her something, so she says
"Can you draw the princess from the princess and the frog?"
"Can you draw the frog"
"Can you draw the two together?"
This is the one who wanted bunnies reading books in a forest on a path on her birthday cake. She's a firm believer in squeezing as much as possible can be squeezed into a drawing.
I really like this one actually. I really think the lineart gets a bit thick around him, but I like the color techniques. I was trying to go for a blend of the Disney animator's style and my own. So thats why the dress doesn't have a thick shade and cool to have some new characters to experiment with. The only thing is I got the colors for him and it was strangely brown, and while granted he's not a very bright green, I still thought it didn't look right (and it really bugged the cousin I was drawing it for).
When I finished I showed it to my cousin's grandmother and she was convinced I'd used some sort of template. So I had to show her all the layers (33 to be exact
) to prove to her it was free hand. My other two cousins came over, and there grandmother asking how I drew it, and the eldest of the two (the one I drew [link]
for) says,"She's amazing." Definitely one of the best compliments I've ever received.
