If I were a character I would be...

The new theme this week is,
If I were a character I would be..

These characters include movies, tv shows, books etc. 
so the character I chose is..
(from Beauty and the Beast)

This is because she is super cute, and sexy.  When she is turned into an object she comes a feather duster, which is practically the cutest object you could be. On top of this she gets the suave Lumière. My favorite scenes with her include the one where Lumière and Babette are behind the curtain, and she says, "Oh no, no no no no! I've been burnt by you before!" If you don't remember that scene or have not seen the movie, you are missing out!

Here is my sketch and watercolor of her as a human.

I also have other characters I would very much like to be, and surprise, they are all Disney. The other three are Ariel (of course),Vixie (girl fox in The Fox and the Hound), and Faline (from Bambi). OH, and Figaro (Pinnochio), aaand the girl bear from Brother Bear (at the Salmon Rush). Hmm.. I guess thats more than 3, oh well!

I'm hoping to do at least one other one this week, we shall see. 


  1. That's very nicely done, and I love the watercolor version of it. Awesome job! One thing to watch, the thumb holding the duster is coming from her wrist a bit. It should be moved up a smidgen along the handle. But that's obviously nitpicking (still, as animators, we have to watch for that stuff). I can't wait to see more.

    This "Theme for the Week" thing, is that something you do on your own? Or is it a larger collective of animators? I only ask because I'd love to join in. :)

    Glad I accidentally stumbled on your blog here while looking for a picture of Tom Bancroft's book to use on my own blog.

  2. Wow! thank you! Ahh, yes I see the thumb is wrong hah. The theme of the week is done with a few people that took a summer animation course. Only one of them have actually put something up yet, but it should happen soon. You are most welcome to join in! We would love to have more people.

  3. Awesome, then I think I'll do that. I suppose I'll just post a link here when I have something.

  4. I can add you to the list on the side too

  5. I got this link from JKR's blog and that looks amazing!!! I'm going to bookmark this so I can see what you do next. How are you so good at watercoloring? I wish I could do that but it always runs all over the place :(

  6. Thank you! Watercolours are very hard! It took me a while to be able to do this. But I love it so much. Do you have a blog or website?
