Magica De Spell...cel! by PixelKitties Magica De Spell...cel! by PixelKitties
It's been a while, and I've been taking a break from uploading and working like a fiend during my off time.  Hope everyone is doing well! 

This is an interesting piece that I really wanted to share.  I ordered an official animation cel from the OG Ducktales cartoon featuring the witch with the most hex appeal, Magica!  Unfortunately there was a mix up and I was sent the wrong background image for the cel, while the one for my cel was sent to somebody else who, for whatever reason, didn't want to part with it.
  
Magica cel bought by PixelKitties 

It took some doing, but friends on Twitter helped me identify the exact scene from the episode Send in the Clones, Season 1 episode 6 of Ducktales.

  Magica Cel Original by PixelKitties 

I took a screenshot of the episode at the best resolution I could manage (which wasn't very high) and recreated the entire background in Photoshop.  I printed it out on 8x10 photo paper and, voila!  My priceless Ducktales cel is complete!

Yeesh, one of the worst mix-ups I have heard of. The switching of the backgrounds was bad enough, but the fact of the recipient of the other background would not part with it was the icing on the cake. Anyhow, glad to hear that you got this all sorted out =)

Cool! Framed animation cels are always fun to see. Hope I can afford one eventually.

That must have cost a pretty penny

Hey, it's nice to see you again :) Do you think you'll start making #fififriday art again? :)

This cel is pretty nice, though, and you did a really great job with the background :)

You did great with the background but if I was you I'd ask for a partial refund as you did not receive the full product.

Oh I absolutely got a partial refund!  In the end I got an original Ducktales animation cel for around $30, which is definitely worth the extra time it took to make the background!

I'm glad to hear that. Still sucks the other person won't hand out the wrongfully sent one, though. Dx

Also that's way cool that you could sort out the discrepancies and make yourself the celluloid you really wanted.

Brilliant. Magica is my fav of the Scrooge ducks, save Scrooge himself.

Much envy.

Good old Magica! I remember her from the comics Disney used to do. I loved watching her drive Scrooge up the wall.
