Just a quick piece I might shade later. I really dislike the lack of creativity for Dusty's character - I'm not saying I don't like her; I just think the animators were VERY lazy to make her soo similar to Aleu. With such diverse characters like Steel, Balto, Star etc.... it's like they just took aleu's character, re-colored it, slightly altered the markings, and changed the ears. I actually thought Aleu was Dusty before I even saw the third movie, but was sad to learn it was a cheap replica.
Okay, now I know what you're all gonna say, "OMG, Is she naked?! She's naked isn't she?! Wow, Kodimarto I didn't know you had it in you!" Well to tell you the truth she's NOT naked so don't get too excited folks. (See what I did there?) Anyway, anyway, this picture is ENTIRELY G-Rated and it's like my friend said to me, it's not naked unless the fur's off, and I've also learned that it's not naked if any privates are showing otherwise the Mature Content wouldn't be up. Besides I already told you guys this in Aleu as Marina the Little Mermaid.
Anyways, this picture was suggested by and I thought, "Eh, there's no harm in it." Besides, you people have seen many anthros female and male from Redwall and all that not wearing anything but their fur. Now the picture shows Aleu pretty nervous-looking in he picture. I think you can guess why but hey, Aleu's not afraid of ANYTHING. You know this DOES kinda remind me of Eve from the bible story, and I've been thinking about doing one with Aleu, what do you guys think?
So anyways, I hope you all enjoy this picture of Aleu. I think you're ALL gonna enjoy it, especially , and (I know you three are REALLY gonna enjoy it) and I'll try and make more pictures soon.
Aleu is a character from Balto Wolf Quest by Universal Studios. Head was traced from a screencap from Balto Wolf Quest from Disney Screencaps. Base used to make the body is by
Aleu is my fave Balto 2 character and I´ve always wanted to see her in the Balto 1 style. Did my best, but the real animators of this movie are the best ^^. I also needed a little cut-and-paste-Photoshop practice and my brain needed to do something else than commissions for a while ^^. Commissions are fun but there is no Balto . Yes: this is also supposed to be a screenshot.
Well well, I finally got my mitts on Balto II: Wolf Quest!
Now my Balto trilogy is complete...muhahaha!
And you know what...I love Aleu. In fact I really enjoy Wolf Quest. I know that SO many people gripe and complain about how terrible Wolf Quest was to the original. And yes, I agree that its not even close to the original...BUT animated sequels rarely are! So quit your complaining!
And I think Aleu is a great character. I have read the problems people seem to have with Aleu as well...Well guess what! Your Balto OC didn't make it into the movie, Aleu did! So obviously SOMEONE thought she was good enough for the film! She got her own animated movie! Isn't that really all our dream? To imagine a story worth telling and animating?! HUMANS SPENT YEARS TO PRODUCE THAT ART! SO APPRECIATE IT!
Anyways...that was sort of a rant...Sorry...
I really want to make a nice full color picture of Aleu, because I think she needs some more love! And I normally don't even like making fan art! Them art thieves start thieving even more with fan art...
I think this is the first fanart I do of Balto's movies. Yesterday I saw Wolf's Quest, and I didn't see that movie since I was... 7? 8? A long time ago, that's sure. I remember when I was younger that I didn't like the sequel because it was so... "strange", but when I saw it yesterday, I liked it. Is so spiritual and all the totem's things doesn't make a lot of sense with Aleu and Balto's story of being a mix of wolf and dog... Whatever, I wanted to draw Aleu, because she's beautiful and she reminds me a lot of Kiara, though I prefer Aleu. I never liked that much Balto's style (I always found Balto a bit ugly because of his fuzzy muzzle xD) so I mix it with my style.
Ahh, when was the last time I used the cell-shading technique? -----------------
Her lionsona, Nine, with her sexy boyfriend, Taido. I was kinda boring of doing pics of lion couples nuzzling of huging each other, so I tried something different in this one. I was inspired by the end of the TLK's first film, so here Nine is looking totally stunned at her boyfriend, the new "king" while Taido feels himself so proud of having a "queen" like Nine.
And yeah, the stuff floating around them is supposed to be the Great Kings of the past's manifestation, as they approve Taido and Nine as kings.
PS. If you can link to me which screenshot Taido's expression is taken from, I'll give you a cookie
