It's magical when a new simple cartoon can give you lots of inspirations coming from nowhere. I am just on fire now after two months away from doing any doodles. Gah! Wanna do more doodles of Wander with Rarity and Twilight Sparkle yet...
This ugly fellow just went to the theaters yesterday to watch the release of this movie.
And, oh Bills, it was awesome. Fangasms, tears, cheers and nostalgia everywhere and all the way out. Thank you, Diamond Films, by bringing this amazing dubbing to our theaters. It was priceless and amazing.
On 17 of October, I did a tribute to the talented voice-actor Orlando Drummond, who did a 94th birthday two days ago, on 18 of October. In this tribute, I made a short slide-show animation of Starswirl, the Bearded, writing a letter to him to wish a happy birthday. I used my own voice to dictate the letter(not my normal voice, of course). Don't worry; it has subtitles.
Orlando Drummond (born on October 18, 1919 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) is a Brazilian stage, television and film actor, best known for his dubbing works of Seu Peru in the series "Escolinha do Professor Raimundo" and also as the voice of Scooby Doo, Alf, and Popeye. Voice of more than 85 characters(including Dynomutt, Grim, Gargamel), Scooby Doo is his and everyone's favorite. He does Scooby Doo's voice from over 35 years. By that, he almost won a spot on Guinnes Book but he lost it when came to Brazil the new series of Scooby Doo, "Scooby-Doo! Mistery Incorporated", and he didn't participate it.
Attention: I don't know if the animation is available for you guys because of copyrights(from WMG, for using one of "The Lord of the Rings" soundtracks, even with credits) or kind of. So, if you can't watch the video, sorry.

"Today I had gone to a college named UNIFOR(Universidade de Fortaleza, or Fortaleza's University) to participate in a workshop of drawings. We had a little brief of Drawing's History, What Is a Drawing, How To Draw With Objects/Symbols/Guide lines, and so on.
Those ones are sketches I made in the time of 10 minutes. Just really quick sketches, with no intent of perfection(which is really hard because I WANT everything perfect).
In these, there are two sketches of Wander(Wander Over Yonder), Derpy and Fluttershy(MLP [my temporaly teacher recognized it when he saw it. lol]), a little diamont(it was supposed to be one of diamonds from Rarity's cutiemark), Voltorp(Pokemon - G1) and two OCs of mine, Jim White and Roberto Pardo, with a massive upgrade. I should redraw them, just to compare.
And, oh boy, I really loved their pencils. Just by the touch and how you draw with it, it was really good. I loved their pencils so much... that I stole 2 or 3 with different sizes to myself. LOL. It's so wrong but I can't helped! Children, if you are reading this, don't steal from studios. It's wrong. I meant it! Don't follow my deeds!"
Watching a cartoon and fell in love with the animation and the stories, again.
The "Sítio do Picapau Amarelo - Série Animada"(Yellow Woodpecker Farm - Animated Series), created by Montero Lobato from his books series and by Humberto Avelar as director. The animation is really smooth and the design is very attractive. The stories are kinda childish but still funny. I discovered recently that show is called as "Pirlimpimpim" in English. I was like "what?". I don't know about you guys but "Pirlimpimpim", in our culture, is that magical golden powder that makes you fly around with happy thoughts(Peter Pan stories, I guess?). The title "Sítio do Picapau Amarelo" translated to English means "Yellow Woodpecker Farm" and it's a place where all the stories of the series happens. Seriously, "Pirlimpimpim"? What the hell--?
Anyway, here's a sketchie!
This is Emília (Emely or Emilia, to English). She's Lucia LittleNose's rag doll, a present she got from Nastácia. She's able to talk since Lucia mockingly gave her a magic "talking pill" intended to cure Nastácia from a nervous wreck. Likes to play around, making fun and tricks, go to adventures with Pete and Lucia.
Here's a short video that I found on YouTube, where was shown in MIPCOM 2013, with English subtitles. Have fun!
Now coming with a ponyfication of, no more than less:
He was one of the three finalists and the winner of The Voice Brazil competition on this year, 2013. Oh boy, his voice was and is amazing. he gave us a show in The Voice. To have a quick peek, watch those videos above:
=> Hallelujah (The Voice Brazil)
(Obs: In this music, he sang it both in Portuguese[first part] and in English[second part].)
=> Let Me Love You - Ne-Yo (Cover by Sam Alves)
So here it is the ponyfication of him:
About the drawing: For some reason, some particular reason of mine, I found its eyes really strange. Tried my best to don't look as weird as before. But still didn't like, really didn't.

A quick really quick sketch from a boring momentum in an actual afternoon. For that, I remember an specific moment when watching an episode of WoY. But remember that this picture's title is:
"I heard that voice som-- wait!"
That was the exactly same feeling when I heard in the first time. And when I look at the final credits, I found it: Tara Strong (Twilight Sparkle's voice) did Beeza's voice in "The Ball" episode. I liked, the episode became even better with that news. lol
You know, before I read Beeza I thought that she was Princess Verbina (A character on an episode of Samurai Jack (that I just so happened to watch last night)). Though upon closer inspection they do look a bit different. Out of curiousity, I looked up her voice actor/actress, and wouldn't you know it, Tara Strong also voiced her character as well c:
Still, I really like this. Good Job as always
"A reader lives a thousand lives, the man who never reads lives only one." - George R.R. Martin
@Cerulean: Ah! Princess Verbina! I remember that episode from Samurai Jack! Good times.
Really, really, really quick sketch about a bad news.
Nico Nicolaiewsky, actor and musician, died today, February 07, with 56 years from acute myeloid leukemia. Maestro Pletskaya, an accordion player, is his character from the musical show "Tangos & Tragédias", with Hique Gormez, who does the violinist, Kraunus Sang.
This sketch is about one of they songs called "Ébrio"(Toper/drunken), wrote by Vicente Celestino. Most precisely from this quote:
Portuguese: "Falsos amigos, eu vos peço, imploro a chorar Quando eu morrer, à minha campa nenhuma inscrição Deixai que os vermes pouco a pouco venham terminar Este ébrio triste e este triste coração
Quero somente que na campa em que eu repousar Os ébrios loucos como eu venham depositar Os seus segredos ao meu derradeiro abrigo E suas lágrimas de dor ao peito amigo!"
English(probably): "Fake friends, I ask, beg you to cry On my grave with any inscription when I die Let the worms, bite by bite, finish with This sad toper and his sad heart!
I just wanted, on the grave that I will laid on, All these crazy topers like me, come to place All their secrets on my last bed And their tears of pain on a friendly chest!"
From left to right: Kraunus Sang(Hique Gormez's character) and Maestro Pletskaya(Nico Nicolaiewsky's)
This month, I watched an wonderful movie! It was cute, magical, simply beautiful! A movie that talks about friendship, loyalty, breaking barriers of prejudice, adventure and art! An awesome movie animation that was nominated for Oscar 2014 for Best Animation Film. And, no, I am not talking about "Frozen", which unfairly won the prize. Nope, I am talking about the french movie "Ernest et Célestine".
"Ernest & Celestine" (French: "Ernest et Célestine") is a 2012 French-Belgian animated film directed by Stéphane Aubier, Vincent Patar and Benjamin Renner. The film is based on a series of children's books of the same name published by the Belgian author and illustrator Gabrielle Vincent.
Synopsis: "Célestine is an orphaned mouse who lives underground. An artist at heart, Célestine is training to become a dentist when she meets cantankerous bear Ernest, who has emerged from his remote woodland cottage in search of food, and nearly becomes his breakfast. Instead of being frightened by Ernest like most mice, however, Célestine strikes up a friendship with the misunderstood giant. Before long Ernest and Célestine are inseparable, but can their friendship last in a world where mice have been taught to fear bears, and bears have been taught never to play with their food?"
Above, the trailer with subtitles:
Loved Célestine character. So much that I wanted to draw her. Or, at least, try. Firstly, I tried to draw her by memory(it's one of the tips that my brother told me to do); it was a really bad idea. Mine Célestine looked more like Mickey Mouse in the end of every sketch. lolwat. So, I had search for some pictures from the film for references and I found their Official Site, with lots of pics and even sketches with positions, backgrounds, expressions, characters and even more. To access their pictures, click on "Les Coulisses" link and then click on "La Fabrication Du Film".
And then, Voilà!
From Célestine on the left: "Then a biiiiig bear appeared!"

@Mad-Mutt: I found a short clip from the movie. Unfortunately it is in French, but it have English subtitles. The scene is Ernest's and Célestine's first meet, where he founds her sleeping in a trash. One of the best scenes ever.
