The Easy Life by Chico-2013 The Easy Life by Chico-2013
Ok- easily chalking this up as (in my opinion) my best piece of artwork to date. Owing to the sheer amount of time I've put into painting this and stuff, I couldn't be more proud.

Not long ago I had the chance to read Pinocchio, and then re-watch the movie since it had been years since I'd seen it last.

Thus inspired, I painted this- Pinocchio on his way to school when he is stopped by Honest John, who persuades him to abandon his schooling for life as an actor.

Enjoy!

Nice picture!!! The shadows are an especially nice touch, foreshadowing Honest John's sinister nature.

If you're interested, I did something similar (feedback welcome :)) : joyhorse13.deviantart.com/art/…

Keep up the good work!

The soft shadows give this one a faintly ominous air, without overdoing it. The shading on the hands is especially beautiful, and really lends an appearance of dimensionality.

Honest John used to scare me as a kid. Haha.

Anyways~ I have to agree with you; this IS your best piece of artwork to date! You've really learned to control this shading style professionally! The lighting is great, the poses/anatomy are spot on, and it's balanced/easy to look at. It's so detailed! I can nearly breathe the effort you put into it. xD If I didn't know better, I would think that this came straight out of the official Pinocchio. And I mean that with all honesty~

On a random note, have you ever tried painting traditionally? It was a challenge for me, but I think you could pull it off. o3o

This is FANTASTIC.

Funny, when I was a kid, I thought Honest John was awesome, yet never knew why until I watched the film again as an adult. Because when I did, I muttered "best con man ever" when he showed up.

Thank you so much Abby! I really appreciate it~ I might start a Disney series of images now, if I can decide who and what to do next.

And...once or twice, but never anything super serious. I should sometime! It would be fun~

Thanks again!

My personal Disney favorites are Hercules and Mulan, that is, if you need some ideas. Heh.

You totally should! ^3^

Not a problem~ I just love seeing your artwork again. T3T You've improved so much since you last were active!

Oh, Pinocchio!! I remember that Disney movie! :la: It used to be one of my absolute favourites as a kid. XD

You captured these two characters very well. The expressions, the poses, the colours, they all look amazing, as always. ;D
I'm impressed with your paintings, the shading is awesome! I can imagine just how much time you spent on this. I'm having fun looking at all the details you added in it. ^^

I am in love with this pic! XD It's simply beautiful! I seriously hope to see more artwork from you soon! 8D

Oh my god! I used to love this movie so much as a kid! I still have the second version of the book in the basement somewhere, and I still read it (sometimes).
...Yeah, I'm a guy. I don't have a problem with that.
