The Issue of the Gravy by Aphius The Issue of the Gravy by Aphius
~RestInPeacePrincess requested a sketch of Violet from The Incredibles.

I recall from when I was super in to The Incredibles, I watched the movie with the Director’s commentary and Brad Bird mentioned that in the initial stages of animation one of the first scenes that was given the OK to animate was the dinner scene. He gave each of his animators a short part of it so they would all have something to do.
They all ended up bickering over food position inconsistencies in the meetings they had, things like “What about the Peas” and “The Broccoli has moved!” One of the animators named Nigel asked over the top of some of the arguing “Can we please get back to the issue of the Gravy?” and apparently Brad just kept on coming back to him with that.

Sooo this image is somewhat of an homage to that. =P

Also, apparently The Incredibles are coming out on Blu-ray in April. ~Fucking Finaaallyyy~ and Brad Bird tells the story way better than me in the dude’s voice, so you guys should go get it.

I was listening to the commentary yesterday and when Brad said this I had the biggest "OOOOH! I get it now!" moment; I found this artwork a few months ago but I didn't understand the whole gravy part until yesterday. :XD:

You really have a knack for making Incredible's characters look amazing. I especially like your violet pictures. Great job on this one too by the way. And before I forget, just a tidbit of constructive criticism. I don't know how serious you're taking this picture as far as a complete work of art is concerned, but she seems to be missing half of her bottom row of teeth. Other than that, the picture looks great.

I didn't personally like Helen that much back when I saw the movie the first time, but I do now. I forgot to show you this back when I posted it. My picture titled "Elastigirl VS. Elder Tuguro." Elder Toguro is from an anime called Yu Yu Hakusho, and since they both can stretch, I figured it would make for an interesting picture/matchup. I was actually greatly inspired by your old Incredible's drawings when I decided to do this.

What you're actually seeing there is her back teeth from the bottom row, not the front bottom teeth, they are behind the lip.

At least that's what it's supposed to be. :o

I was thinking about revisiting one of those old Elastigirl images recently actually. :)

She looks so much better now with her teeth fixed. You one of the best Violet artists in my opinion.

Oh, I loved that movie. I now have a sudden urge to watch it.

Violet surely had the best powers, and I really like how she looks in her style.
