Fagin by JoJo-Seames Fagin by JoJo-Seames
Was compelled to watch Oliver and Company the other day. Fagin has gotta be one of my favorite characters ever. Just the way he moves...and voiced by Dom DeLuise! My gosh! :heart:

I like this movie a lot. It's weird, because it has a lot of elements I'm not really keen on (i.e. Huey Luis, Billy Joel, extended waxing sentimental about New York City...) But I do like dogs. And I love the character designs in this film. And that's why I can watch it over and over again...

Quick painting. Sepia ink and watercolor. Doesn't do the character justice at all. *Sigh*

Oliver and Company by Walt Disney Studios, based on Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

Nicely done! Dom's would be pleased to see that if he were still here. By the way, today is his 81st B-day - August 1.

Character designs <3

I loved Fagin. He seemed like that sort of guy who cares for everyone but no one cares for him :c
Except his dogs, of course. and what characters they were :D

Dom DeLuise does the voices to the BEST characters. :D i don't know if you've ever seen A Troll In Central Park, but that's just as good, and he voices the main character. Ooo, and Tiger from American Tail...

yee! but i love how grungy this painting looks. :)

I was obsessed with that movie as a kid.

Kinda interesting that Fagin was a sweet guy in Oliver & Co. but not so much in Oliver Twist.

This drawing makes me want to see the Disney film AND re-read Dickens' masterpiece.

Awesome work!
