Bobby boi by Mistrel-Fox Bobby boi by Mistrel-Fox
I saw Incredibles 2 a week ago and I'd like to thank Brad Bird for reviving my childhood obsession with the Parr family and Bob in particular c': honestly tho, the sequel was so (surprisingly) good?? I wasn't hoping for anything but ended up enjoying it as much as the first movie, and I loved all the character development in it - not to mention FANTASTIC action scenes and new characters! <з I really hope we'll get a TV series or at least a few specials down the road - don't know if this franchise needs a third movie, but it deffo has lots of potential for future stories. (which I hope won't take another 14 years to make lol)

I don't really have time for full-on Incredibles fanart, but I had to at least draw a couple of sketches with the super dad himself :> Bob is my favorite character in both movies, and his relationship with his family and his character development throughout the movies are just wonderful <з (plus Helen/Bob is a ship from heaven, it's like my #1 Pixar OTP and I really need to draw them together one day aaaaa)


UPD: okay, is there a hidden Bob Parr fanclub on DA I don't know about because that's the only explanation for this thing getting over 2.5K faves in a single day and making it to DA's popular page XD seriously tho, thank y'all so much for all the faves and feedback - and hi to all new watchers too!

For Bob, it's all just a different part of being a hero!

I love the fact that they avoided the idiot dad trope here. While Bob does initially struggle with being a stay at home parent, we see how he tries his best to adapt and be a good parent for his kids! Not to mention how frigging AWESOME Helen was!

Honestly, I would be surprised if they did go with this trope - given that both films were directed by Brad Bird, and he spent a lot of time developing Bob's character for the original movie, which made it clear Bob is by no means a dumb character; he's just really awkward and inexperienced when it comes to being involved in his family's lives - something he didn't bother to do often since he was always so busy either being a superhero, or trying to relive the past. So yeah, he might feel like a fish out of water in his stay-at-home dad role, but that only comes from his general inexperience, and he does try to get better - he already learned a few lessons by the end of the movie, which is great :) I'm actually glad they made the parents switch roles, because it showed them both from new angles - like you said, Helen was AWESOME, and I was so impressed by her creativity (not to mention professionalism) when doing superhero work! Really showed what a badass veteran she is *__* (she, Bob, and Lucius totally need to open a superhero academy of sorts to raise a new generation of supers - honestly, how cool of a show that would be?)

Nice sketches! Really does look like him, while maintaining a unique take on the character. The Incredibles films are so great. They're so visual and Marvel like. Real depth in animation that you can tell Mr. Bird and his team spent years perfecting.

I was super hesitant over the second one too. I was so worried it was going to be very demeaning to stay at home dads and didnt want that for the Parr family. I was over the moon, gitty excited after I saw this. Its exactly what it should have been and I hope to see a third in (atleast) 5 years.

Love this little piece. I like to think young Bob would be so proud and happy of who he becomes.

I didn't hope for anything because Pixar sequels, with the exception of Toy Story 2 and 3, are usually nowhere near as good as their original movies; and the trailers for Incredibles 2 didn't impress me much, either, so I wasn't even hyped for the movie, unlike everyone else. But after I finally saw it, I left the cinema thinking "Wow, that was as good as the first movie, if not better" :D Although it lacked in some parts (like dramatic/dark moments and overall stakes, which were wayyy higher in the original movie), it more than compensated for it with all kinds of character interactions we didn't see in the first movie (which was mainly focused on Bob), and awesome action sequences :la: My favorite thing about it was how they developed the relationship between Bob and Violet - they barely interacted in the first movie, but the sequel really showed how much they care for each other :') And yeah, the whole stay-at-home dad Bob thing was well-executed! Like, they didn't portray his struggles as a joke - I mean, there were plenty of funny moments when he just loses control over the situation, but at the same time it made his character relatable and even more human; also, I think him struggling with being a dad effectively continued the idea of the first movie, of him being a retired combatant that feels out of place in mundane life and is detached from his family for this reason. (sorry I kinda started rambling, lmao)

Anyway, thank you! <3 I think young Bob would be proud of his future self, too :)

I was worried this became a movie about chauvinism and feminism, but no, it was barely mentioned, just like the first movie, it was about family and perpective.

It was very well executed; despite the role swap between Helen and Bob, they were still portrayed as equals - Helen wasn't "better" that Bob just because she did most of the hero business in this movie, and she was only able to get work done because Bob was supportive of her and stayed with the kids; at the same time, Bob's struggles with being a dad were realistic and showed a new side to his character :) Brad Bird clearly knew what he was doing, and I'm thankful for that~
