Today's the day that Rio arrives on Blu-Ray & DVD in the States - so I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone (metaphorically speaking, or course) and create my first proper Rio fanart to celebrate the occasion and enter #Rio-Movie's contest.

Alas, I discovered the latest Internet meme and this very funny dA club called #GRAB-MY, so I abandoned any meaningful or poignant idea I had for an artpiece and jumped on the bandwagon for 2 hours instead!

This might be my very first Deviant done entirely using a Wacom pen. I always do the sketch in pencil and ink before scanning and colouring it digitally, but I was too lazy to use the scanner, so I decided to take the leap (much like Blu here) and do it entirely with a tablet. To my dismay, it was an excruciating experience, and I'm not convinced I will be using this method again anytime soon.

I have another idea for the 'X Grab My Y' for Rio, but I might do it in traditional media just for a nice contrast as a companion piece. And of course, I'm gonna see if I have time to bring the more poignant fanart ideas I have into reality.

Hope this made you laugh, though! Or at least groan. Comments and Faves much appreciated, and wish me luck for the contest!

Original idea by :iconangelaart: & :iconlizcakes:

*EDIT* Não acredito! I leave this for one week and I get 26 Faves and 8 comments already! Not remarkable by any popular Deviant's standards, but this is quite an achievement for me! Ironically, following the crowd gets you noticed. =P

Someone already pointed this out below me, but Jewel's way off color. She's not a turquoise macaw, y'know.

Rio's a special movie to me because for the first time in recent years, it broadcast my native city in a positive light. About time!
Hahaha, the end surprised me XD I only realized it was the meme remake when I saw the rainbow.
Funny, definitely funny!

I saw this movie, and it was so awesome. My fave part had to be when Jewel was singing in the bird-filled dance club.

Also, you've done an amazing job! Maybe I might try this meme sometime...
