Oh God this has been a long time coming! Now it’s finally finished for the new year! To celebrate the release of Kung Fu Panda 3 next month, I’ve decided to make an extensive countdown for who I think are some of the best characters in the franchise thus far!

Not only is this a countdown, but expect some character analysis, trivia on the characters themselves, the actors who played them, behind the scenes, Chinese culture and much more! So who knows? Maybe you’ll learn something new. :) I just hope Ive managed to improve things since the Lord Shen Documentary, way back in 2011.

  • Mood: Zest
  • Listening to: "Siren” by Kat Krazy ft. Elkka
  • Reading: The book this journal is about
  • Watching: Modern life is Goodish
  • Playing: Team Fortress 2
  • Eating: Indian food
  • Drinking: Water

Well, as if successfully drawing and inking picture (via crow-quill) , watching an interesting documentary on Faberge that really helped for an important plot point in my comics didn't already leave me buzzing! The book I ordered has arrived! "An Animator's Gallery: Eric Goldberg draws the Disney characters". (One of the many new art books set to come out over this and the next month). Showing the gorgeous ink drawings of nearly all of the Disney, Pixar and even Nightmare Before Christmas characters drawn by Disney animator and director Eric Goldberg. Let me tell you, it's gorgeous and so helpful!! Wonderful lines of varying weight and some excellent use of cross-hatching that I hope to employ myself. I am on a high!OMG MOAR POEMS! 


While of course, some of my many favourite disney characters are there and looking great! I was, however, only slightly disappointed that the likes of King Candy (Wreck-it Ralph) or Yokai (Big Hero 6) were sadly absent from the book, despite how well their designs would lend well to this style of art. Given King Candy’s visually marvellous, confectionary based, subversion of the classic Disney comedy relief character and Yokai’s slick but expressive figure, simple design and heavy use of the colour black. But it's made me more determined to draw a B&W piece of Yokai myself. In the hopes to perfect the design more and get more inking practice. Especially at how dissatisfied I am with my first attempt at drawing him.:Yokai: - NaNoEmo 

KC should have especially been included; given that Eric animated an incredible pencil-test of a deleted scene from the film, still fully voiced by Disney’s recent recurring and very talented voice actor, Alan Tudyk.


Speaking of actors, of course one of Eric’s most famous achievements is being the animator for the Genie from Aladdin. Whom you all know was voiced by the late (and still missed) Robin Williams. So it naturally stands that this book would be affectionately dedicated to his memory in a very lovely final page coloured in white and gold.

This book is a definite must-buy! The book is available on Amazon and you can see some previews of pages here Arrow Bullet (Rainbow) - F2U! www.ilsollazzo.com/forum/viewt…



     

Also I have a lot of other things I suppose I'll need to catch up on and update about. But i'll be sure to do all that in another journal entry soon. For the Kung Fu Panda fans amongst you. You may be interested to see my reaction to the Chinese Trailer of the upcoming 3rd film. Other than, Im sorry for my absence, and be sure to ask me anything you like. :)

Birthday present for :iconabilee94:! 


Point Right SPEEDPAINT VIDEO HEREPoint Left 


Birthday Present for aflfangirl 94! Whom I know is a Loki-fangirl and peacock-lover like myself. So I knew I had to draw this piece of the Norse God of Mischief as a green peacock. I decided on the Icy Background in order to harken back to the Land of the Frost Giants. Granted its probably not accurate. But I guess in the end I did want to romanticise it a bit. Having the light blues contrast the waker body of the peacock. But doing this allowed me to study extra. Such as researching snowy environments, watching Loki related videos, and observing his costume. I am now more familiar with the contours of this man’s helmet than I am my own mother’s face.

I made sure I had plenty of time to do this piece. The rough sketch for this alone took perhaps two days. Then of course as you’ll see in the video's description, this is the longest time its taken me to do a speedpaint; At 5 hours and 8 minutes!! But it was so satisfying to have it done. Once it was over I went downstairs and had some bloody good TV watching and I’d washed my bedsheets. I didn't get my the until 8 or 9 o clock that night because of how long the whole thing took. Went to bed with a smile on my face. Finally I could relax!

Final Piece Here!


SPEEDPAINT VIDEO HERE


Just decided to upload this for the hell of it to show the process. Not much to say apart from you can see how I decided against the more realistic proportions in the pencil and then going to the inks. And I'm still comfortable to do the backgrounds separately from the subjects. I always find it a little fun to observe the flat colours from the final ones. In pretty much any comic style piece. 

Be sure to check out the speed paint video to see it in motion!

Yeah I saw the Chinese trailer too! It was so epic. I don't know how I feel about Kai. I just don't think anyone could ever top Shen.

Indeed. Going on the comments of my reaction video. It seems like alot of us have been feeling the same way.

Sorry for the late reply. So busy and plenty of technical difficulties to put up with.
