First Disney fan art in watercolor
an imaginary scene at the end of "The Great Mouse Detective" after Basil closed Ratigan's case. Ollivia was about to leave London with her dad. She decided to give Basil something to remember her by. Fortunately, she had the replica of her ballet doll, and she gave him as a gift lol... I don't know anything else would get along better with the movie.
GMD was one of the best Disney animations I watched when I was very young. Even though I couldn't understand most of dialogs and plots, I kinda remembered all those voices and music in this film. Lol, and what reminded me the most of it was how scary I felt when there were a lot of sudden Fidget face moments on screen!(And still scary now!
) How many times I watched it? ... I lost my count haha
I just had a chance to watch it again on DVD last week, after I watched "Sherlock Holmes" movies (RDJ version) at home on March. And I laughed like a mad girl whole movie becuz of those cartoon plots and songs, even my mom gotta ask "What are you watching??? Are you gonna turn back to a child again??" LOL
Just can't believe I could make myself watch this kind of stuff at this age...
Anyway, beside from movie itself. Another inspiration of making this art is a ton of loyal fans who were still out there, although the movie was extremely old. I just found a lot of great fan fiction of GMD as well, especially about BxO shipping
great inspiration!! If only Disney could make the sequel, it's gonna be epic!
I'm surprised that I could somehow drew these characters very easy! It's true! I've never be able to draw any of Disney's character at this accuracy before. But I think I had some practice when I tried to draw Mulan years ago, which has helped me to understand Disney's drawing and painting style. If you notice, I used the darken object's color for strokes - as the same for Mulan drawing, instead of black ink we saw in GMD
I love basil and Olivia in this pic <3 I also love newspaper in background too, very fine detail to work with no.2 round brush
