I've finally gotten around to trying making ATCs, and these are my first ones. They're all from Disney animated movies because seeing The Princess and the Frog
suddenly made me want to re-watch all my old favorites. I had forgotten how wonderful and smart and fun they are! Anyway, here are my very first ATCs of some of my favorite characters.
Mulan, in the outfit she wears at the end. I love that part because she gets to fight and be a badass in general, while still being a girl. xD I loved this movie so much as a kid.
Cinderella and her mouse friends, Jaq and Gus. I had a phase when I was really young where I wanted to watch this movie over and over. I still think it's amazing, really charming and funny and sweet.
Finally, Jasmine and Aladdin! These are the clothes they are wearing at the very end of the movie, although they're not totally accurate. (This movie was also really rewarding to re-watch now that I'm a little older, I know as a kid a lot of the references went straight over my head.)
All of these are drawn with pen and colored pencil. I'm doing drawn ATCs first because drawing is one of the things I'm most comfortable with, but I want to try other techniques in the future. I'd definitely like to start trading ATCs soon, too, once I get going.
This Disney "series" will probably continue, as there are so many characters/movies that I want to draw. I know I have to do one of Tiana, and maybe some other characters from PatF
, because I was totally blown away by the movie. (I've been listening to the soundtrack nonstop since I saw it; the score is beautiful!) And of course, there is a ton of material in the Disney animated canon to work with, so it should keep me pretty busy.
