This is a strange instance where I ended up dreaming about this piece. I guess I was thinking about InkTober before I went to bed last night. XD
I don't know if anyone will even get the reference because it's such an old movie, but hey, it was my childhood. "An American Tail" is one of those movies that I think still ages fairly well. Maybe not in the animation department, but the story. (Although some of the animation is still very beautiful.) Never fails to make me cry.
Anyway, this was a quick speed-paint this morning because I wanted to get the idea out before I forgot it. ^_^
A quick synopsis if you haven't seen the movie:
A Russian family (of mice) emigrate to New York City. On the way, Fievel gets separated from his family, and ends up washing up onto NYC harbor in a bottle. He then spends the rest of the movie trying to find his family.
