I wanted to share my Disneyland and Disney related artwork with everyone on micechat. I always check out the photos everyone posts. Hopefully I bring something unique to the table. I've been drawing characters from Disney movies since I was a teenager trying to impress girls. I almost always exclusively use colored pencils which is fairly time intensive. Let me know if you have any questions, and I'll try to respond. Hope you enjoy it. I'll just put a few things up today to get started. (I'm sorry for the random oversized pics. I feel like Rex on the old Star Tours - sorry folks, this is my first post, and I'm still getting used to the program. If anyone can offer expertise as to how to make these adjustments, please let me know.)
This is "Stars Over Disneyland." A whimsical vision of the park.
A unique view of the castle courtyard. It's a little clearer on the original artwork that the sign reads "Tomorrowland" just like in real life.
I like to sketch or do full color works of the characters as well. This was a particularly expressive drawing of Ariel that I did after seeing it in a book.
Not the clearest picture, perhaps I can update it in the future. But another whimsical vision.
And finally, my favorite and most recently completed work. This is a version of an old postcard from Disneyland that I saw in the book "Disneyland, The Nickel Tour." I love mid-century design and culture, so it's natural that astronauts and Tomorrowland are my favorites. I added the castle and flying saucers in the right hand corner as my own touch.
