The Small One

OK, this is the first time I cry with an animated movie, and the worst thing being, it's not the first time I watch it. I'm talking about "The Small One", a short film made by Disney and released in 1978 with Don Bluth working on it (Dragon's Lair, Thumbelina, The Land Before Time, All Dogs go to Heaven, etc). I think it was because it brings back so many memories. I had it on VHS along other Christmas Disney shorts. But this one was my favourite among all of them. And I can see why. Man I cried like a baby watching it again, the English version is as lovely as the Spanish dubbed version. To understand why it is so good, just watch it:

Part One

It will remind you of the true meaning of Christmas.

Life Drawing

Some life drawing stuff. Yah, that one is Mulan! Can't believe semester (and preproduction) is over!

So I was missing my boys, and remembered I started this old Glenn portraitI never managed to finish (from 2006, as the original file says). I always thought it had potential, but never managed to take it to the right direction. So I recovered it from one of my many DVD backups and this is the result. The poor guy never had a decent portrait (my first attempt is better to remaing forgotten). So compare what was created two years ago, and the final result! And by all means, click to see it bigger!

Also, a closeup (I had fun with the eyes ^^).

Now I need to paint a portrait of Paul, again xD Or maybe Riso, or Loren (This guy might be fun).
