A spitfire contest entry for the Tim Burton Halloween contest at:
I didn't want to draw something from The Nightmare Before Christmas (because of course, that's what most of the entries are), so I did something for James and the Giant Peach. It was a weird movie, but very entertaining for kids. ^.^ When I was little I always felt bad for the Centipede. Hehe.
The Centipede may be one of the last animated heroes to smoke. I haven't seen one in recent years. :/ It seems only villains are allowed to smoke anymore, which is unfair to the good people in real life who smoke, I think. Poor fellers. They're not evil.
So, I just busted this out without much thought this evening. A couple of nights ago, I pulled out my old VHS of "James and the Giant Peach," and watched it. I hadn't seen that movie in YEARS. I still found it fairly entertaining, actually.
It's one of the few cases where I can honestly say I feel that the movie was better than the book. I am a huge fan of Roald Dahl's work, but "James and the Giant Peach" had a few places and elements that really just didn't add to the story. Whatever. You people don't care about this stuff.
I do find it a bit amusing, but at the same time frustrating, that the style I used in making this is somewhat like a friend of mine's, Sterling's, style. What the hey?
This s a picture dedicated to a JatGP fan on Youtube called kailygirl. She’s the most active maker of JatGP AMV’s and more specifically CentipedexSpider vids. Here’s the link of each of the AMV’s she’s made of them:
James and the Giant peach 'illustration attempt' that I've fondly renamed James and The Giant Ass.
Slow project I've been working on to pass the time, it's about half my size with footprints drawn into the peach and faint birds and ropes tied to the stem in the sky that you can't quite see. The shape of the peach is so so so so off that it infuriates me to look at it but it's just practice I guess.
James and the Giant Peach. Watched this movie today, again. IT WAS EXACTLY AS I REMEMBERED, AWESOME. My childhood, man. I loved it. Didn't remember this pairing though, although it's super cute. so I drew them as humans...ish. I love the original style so I feel like I didn't do justice. But I tried. XD Centipede is my absolute fav though.
