Up Eyes

By KatieAlves

I finally did Pixar's Up!

It has the painting version of paradise falls on the right with the original single blue balloon from the beginning and the real paradise falls on the left. I've included Kevin, Dug and Russell on the left side as well!

I'm not exactly happy with this one... I'm not crazy about how I covered my eyebrows, but I'm sharing it because so many of you requested it! There are a lot of designs that you guys have never seen because I didn't like it! haha! This baby took me 2 hours.

What would you like to see next?

I find this very nice, the contrast between to two (very many colors on the left eye with the single balloon above, and the right eye with little color around the eye with the large variety of colors in the balloons above the right eye) brings a balance to the design, and I think the characters came out very nice being that you had so little work space. And contrary to your own opinion, i think the inclusion of the eyebrows in your "painting" worked in very nicely, I'm not quite sure why but i feel that they shoul've been included (no idea why, maybe i thought they were clouds or something).

This will make my second critique that I have done on here. So lets get started.
First, I LOVE YOUR WORK! This one is just fabulous. I love how you capture the story and characters in it. Your colors are so wonderful. I love the balloons on the house, makes it look so real.
I will have to agree with you on the covering your eye brows, but all in all you did a fabulous job.

How about doing a Shrek and Fiona thing? Not sure how to have them, but something along those lines...I am sure that you being a creative person can come up with something....<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Keep up the good work

This is beautiful. I love the way you used the make-up colorwised. I loved how u made the house fly and did it off the normal area which is really creative. It was also creative to make the other eye shinnier than the other. Your consistance of the figures where well done. I rhink the only negative thing on this piece is that the extra balloon on the side where the house is colored. It would of looked fine even without it. Besides that this is really good. I love this movie and when I saw this the music for the movie was the first thing that came to my head. :3

Keep it up

I wasn't very good at makeup in High School. I mainly did gothic looks like thick eyeliner and the black tears.

...i can actually see that! So when did you start experimenting, and trying new things out? (and believe it or not, i haven't been this interested in makeup for a looong time. I don't like wearing it...but you have sparked my interest again!)

I love how you always incorporate your eyelashes and eyebrows into your designs! This and the Alice in wonderland one both look that much more real! Your work is simply stunning! :D

It is just me or do you also burst hysterically into tears every time you see the beginning of this movie? It's one of my favorites for that reason.... that and the corny dog jokes :P
