Walt Disney Animation Studios | 1937 - 2014
After seeing this post, I decided to make this. The “Experimental” era is usually referred to as Post-Renaissance. I imagine the Revival is going to continue through this decade. 2015 and beyond films listed are: (left to right) Zootopia, Giants, and Moana.

Well this happened.
This is something that was bugging me a little bit so, as always, I’ve decided to make an infograph.
Maybe other artists disagree, but when I ask for a request, it’s a fun game. You give me a suggestion and I build on it. It’s a team project. You don’t know what you’re going to get.
If your request takes longer than 3 sentences to describe, it’s not a request. It’s a commission. It’s something so specific, the artist will essentially be working for your specific scene for free.
And of course - DO NOT REQUEST THAT AN ARTIST DRAW YOU SOMETHING if you don’t see that they are specifically accepting requests.
People have been requesting free art from us our whole lives. We’ve had plenty of that. If we want to draw you free stuff, we’ll let ya know. Don’t just assume we have free time - just like you wouldn’t come up to a doctor at a grocery store and ask them to examine your twisted ankle.
Unless you’re a person who does that… in which case… don’t do that either.
I’d like to remind people that this goes for writing requests, too.
And if an artist or writer has a list of “what I do/don’t do” then please respect that.
i’d also like to add that artists and writers have a right to deny requests they feel uncomfortable filling, for any reason. please don’t get mad at them, especially if no money is involved.
My cousin asked me to draw Dr Black Jack carrying Pinoco.
Not too happy with the lines. I didn’t have the best pens but I made do.
The Snow Bros : D painted for fun
Hey Rachie. Just wondering. How are you doing in building your artistic style? (I kinda hate how i keep jumping styles, sometimes major jumps, trying to figure out my own).
Hi!!’ I hope you don’t mind if I publish this.
I don’t have one artistic style, actually. I’m developing several at a time. One is cartoony, one kinda animeish, one like stained glass, and another that’s realistic.
My fave is the cartoony one since it’s the one that’s distinctly mine. To develop it, I look at stuff that good cartoon styles, like the Professor Layton series with its distinguishable characters or Samurai Jack which has a lot of good gestures, shapes, and color combinations that I want to incorporate.
For example, I just can’t seem to let go of big eyes. I love their expressiveness. Also, in a lot of digital paintings and concept art, I like the ones that use dry and very textural brushes with visible strokes so that’s what I use when painting on PS.
Also, all drawings, no matter what style, are based on some sort of realism so drawing things from observation is a very good practice. What I do sometimes when drawing people is that I draw them realistically first then simplify all the shapes and draw them in my cartoony style.
In a nutshell:
1. Draw from observation
2. Look at other artists’ work, take aspects of it that you like, and experiment with them. If they work out, use it in your style!
Don’t worry about having a distinct style yet. You’re still learning and growing as an artist.
Watching the Black Jack anime with my cousin hope she likes it ehe
I have successfully birthed a Black Jack fan
This dog is confused by an egg.

Life-sized Lego statues of Woody and Buzz greet us at the reception desk.
Luigi and Guido and the awards case. There weren’t just awards in there, it also had a kid’s drawing and a really busted up Woody doll that was sent to John Lasseter by Disneyland because apparently a boy got a Woody doll for his birthday and he already had one so he gave his old one to Disneyland so he could enjoy his life and now that beat up Woody doll is in this glass case of trophies. Too bad I didn’t get a picture of it though.
Screening room! This is where employees their dailies (there was a dailies schedule posted along with a table of alcohol) and watch films together. There were two smaller screening rooms adjacent to this big one and in one of them, some people were watching the World Cup semi finals.
