A Friend in Need by RoosmaRoo A Friend in Need by RoosmaRoo
My submission for :iconcr-fanart-contests: Fanart Masterpiece contest. The contest is to take a famous piece of art and recreate it as Fan Art. I found out about it a week ago so I've been rushing to put this together. This was the first idea to pop into my head and I thought it'd be fun to recreate C.M. Coolidge's A Friend in Need.  I wanted to insert my favorite animated dogs (and wolf dog in Balto's case). So here we have:

Balto from Balto
Charlie from All Dogs go to Heaven
Dodger from Oliver and Company
Copper from The Fox and the Hound
Tramp from Lady and the Tramp
Heen from Howl's Moving Castle
Dug from Up

I like to think that Dug doesn't realize he is cheating but just thinks thats how you play poker. Heen, however, knows exactly what he's doing....I had a lot of fun with this one even though it was challenging. If I had more time I was going to add subtle easter eggs throughout the picture, but that'll have to wait for a revision.

Done in Photoshop CS6 with my wacom. 
Card backs are from here

Cool! I just got a Wacom tablet for Xmas and I tried it but was reluctant to start drawing because it felt so sensitive and awkward 😂 have any tips on it?

It is a little awkward at first, it takes a bit to get used to it but once you do it feels pretty natural :) There are ways to calibrate the sensitivity of the tablet if you haven't done so already. I don't remember but that may be one of the steps once you install the software. Also, you should be able to customize the sensitivity for which ever program you use to draw in. I think after making sure its calibrated, the biggest help for me was just to keep practicing! Sometimes I would just open up a new file in Photoshop and doodle with different brushes and getting a feel for the sensitivity, and then I would just delete it all and start over. Just take your time and have fun with it, you'll find your rhythm and style with it! :D

Yeah that's understandable! I grew up watching all of the other movies, I didn't find out about Howls Moving Castle until a few years ago. Its a great movie if you get a chance to see it! :D

This is so good!

I imaging Charlie is cheating no doubt and probably going to go after Dug's chips, Dodger is going to be a challenge to beat, Dug (with the help of Heen) is going to have dumb luck, Heen will puppet Dug. Tramp will probably get wise to some dog cheating. Copper and Balto are good but are too honest in this game with crafty doggies.

Sorry but Charlie is gonna destroy all of them. Although, Dodger might have a good chance at winning. xD
