Pinky and the Brain by ElectricDawgy Pinky and the Brain by ElectricDawgy
Man, I loved this show so much when I was a middle-schooler. I recently saw a clip of the show on You Tube (the Christmas special...awww.....poor Pinky). And I decided I MUST do a fanart of it!

For those curious on how I always attempt first time fanarts, it's as follows:

If it's my first time attempting a fanart of a cartoon or video game character or what not, it usually doesn't take me long to find a reference pic online. (It was a screenshot from the theme song where they're standing on the world with the magnet, I'm sure you know what I mean). I wanna get the exact look of the characters down right while adding my own little tiny bit of style to it. I then do the quick sketch on a seperate paper and practice what kind of situation I want them in before I attempt another sketch. This final sketch is then scanned so I can do my lineart in the GREAT Illustrator (with my new Wacom tablet makes it that much easier!) and then do the background (the longest process) and coloring of the characters in Photoshop, then place them together in the final stage! Ta-da! :D

It appears Pinky is in his world again while Brain tries to explain another attempt. I'm sure they'll rule the world ONE day. :D

Gee, Brain, what do ya wanna do tonight?

The same thing we do every night, Pinky....try to take over the world!!!!

They're Pinky and the Brain,
Yes, Pinky and the Brain,
One is a genius, the other's insane,
they're laboratory mice, their genes have been spliced,
they're dinky, they're Pinky and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain

Before each night is done,
their plan will be unfurled
by the dawning of the sun.
they'll take over the world,
they're Pinky and the Brain, yes, Pinky and the Brain
their twilight campaign, is easy to explain,
to prove their mousey worth,
they'll overthrow the earth,
they're dinky, they're Pinky and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain..NARF!

LOL Just thought I'd refresh your memory and type out the theme song for you as well. I ain't doing nothing at this present moment anyway. Enjoy! :D

Brain is EVIL!  He doesn't deserve Pinky or anyone else!

Brain:"Pinky if you don't stop that, I'm going to have to hurt you."

:giggle: Sorry but his look just says that.

It's clear that The Brain doesn't have much common sense.  Then again, Animaniacs runs on rule of funny.  So The Brain's plans usually get way farther than they should.

Take "Puppet Rulers" for example.  The Brain's plan was to win the hearts and minds of children through a 50s TV show, then cryogenically freeze themselves for 40 years and take over the world when those children grow up to be world leaders.  Immediately, I thought "Those children are going to move on to other things in that amount of time.  Are you sure you'll be popular enough to be remembered in 40 years?" Vague spoiler alert: The ending has The Brain wishing he had been forgotten, although due to the small number of fans that returned 40 years later, compared to the number of kids in the 50s studio, it was likely a vocal minority.

Thankfully, I do think this episode was funny.  It's more proof that The Brain is likely only a little common sense away from taking over the world. By the way, here's that particular episode (it starts at about 9:47).…

Also, your instructions are interesting and handy. I suck at drawing, but Pinky and the Brain have inspired me to increase my skills.
Infindibulator Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012
This is one of the best PatB fan arts I've ever seen. You've drawn both characters very well, and you've managed to capture their personalities and relationship in one picture. Egad, *TalbainEric , you astound me! ZORT

Heh I completely forgot about these guys until my friend called me Pinky while we were playing mini golf (I had a pink ball) and so I remebered their theme song and started to call her Brain! and now she calls me Pinky and I call her Brain and that annoys her but their expressions are similars to ours she calls me insane each day so...I also like to draw and goof off and I guess what I'm trying to say is I like this well done!X) oh and thanks for the lyrcs! now I can use them to annoy her as (well! I'm cruel to her if u haven't notice!);D
