The Secret of Nimh by ChasingArtwork The Secret of Nimh by ChasingArtwork
A pretty big movie for me growing up. The Great Owl and the cat "Dragon" had to be some of the most intimidating animated characters to ever see the screen. The birdcage escape scene makes me anxious to even think about. Great film.

This homage and Land Before Time have been on my to-draw list for a very long time.


• Any cartoons that scared you as a child??

I loved the 1980s kids movies, they felt grander in scale than what we have nowadays.

Loved this film! Still have it on DVD.

Another one that scared me (though not animated) was The Dark Crystal. The Skeksis especially

Still a great film even in this day and age of realistic computer imaging.

Wow, you integrated so many things about the movie into this picture and yet, it doesn't feel cluttered or busy. Everybody is so well-drawn and I love how you are immediately drawn to the light of Mrs. Brisby in the middle. Beautifully done! :heart:

Even without seeing the caption, I recognized 'The Secret of Nimh'. A fine movie based on a good story. Excellent artwork, lively colours. Possibly Don Bluth's finest work.

I've watched this movie when I was little. It was a really cool movie. I think if I remember correctly the part that scared me was probably when they showed the scene where the rats got experimented on(?) I can't remember what happened all that well. Oh I also watched all The Land Before Time movies too. TLBT was my favorite when I was little :3

Also THIS IS A VERY COOL artwork. :D

So many great elements from the movie nestled into this creation, wonderfully done.

Cartoons that scared me? Yeah, for some reason the Last Unicorn sat uneasy with me as a child.

One of the best Don Bluth films!

Cartoons that scarred me for life. Where to start?
The villain in Roger Rabbit. I can't watch that film EVER AGAIN.
Disney's "Night on Bald Mountain".
Mr. Winky from the Disney animated "Wind in the Willows" I have no idea why, but his smile scares the @#$% out of me. I'm over 30 and I still try not to wet myself thinking about him, he was just so wrong!
Monstro the whale and Lampwick turning into a donkey. The way he screams just terrifies me.
The robot spider thing from Jonny Quest. It took YEARS for me to watch that episode again.
The junkyard magnet thing from "Brave Little Toaster". I love that movie, but that junkyard magnet thing was pure evil!

There's probably more, but those are the ones I remember best. You'd think Peter Jackson's orcs and uru-kais would be scary, but compared to old school Disney villains and monsters...

Watership Down was pretty scary to watch as a kid, but that doesn't mean it was bad. Just was a cartoon that was not really intended for children made in an age when people still couldn't comprehend that not all cartoons are just for kids. :P

This is great! Really impressive how you put there all those famous scenes and depicted it so wonderfully. 
A lot of childhood movies were sacred to me: most of Disney's, Land Before Time, Pagemaster, Prince of Egypt, this one of course. 
It's great how those masterpieces are still in the hearts of people and great artists Heart
