Pascal

Watched a good movie yesterday, Disney's Tangled. It's been long overdue, but I love almost all Disney animations, 2D or 3D. I am easily touched by movies like this, and I told my wife how much I liked it. And then I told her "Okay I am gonna draw" "Draw what?" She asked. I said I don't know. And then she suggested "Why don't you draw something from the movie?" So here's the very cute chameleon named Pascal from the movie(hopefully I don't get in trouble for this). I've always liked chameleon because I thought they are so cool(especially when their eyes work independently simultaneously, like 2 separate radars.
(Moleskine Sketchbook 3.5x5.5")

Thank you all again for your comments, and time to write them. 7 days of 12hours shift had costed me quite a bit, exhaustion to name a few, and a slight twist on my right shoulder which saved me from a potential 20 foot dropped. I didn't get any treatment, just letting it heal by itself, and it is still weak and hurts every time I try to push or pull hard with my right arm. But the 7 days off after the 7 days of work helped a lot. We went back to Louisiana for 4 days, celebrated my father-in-law's and my birthday since they are just 3 days apart, ate a lot of good food(Seafood Gumbo!). So everything is good except that Meela is getting spayed tomorrow and I am worried for her.

  1. Alex,

    Love the drawings and am jealous of the gumbo. I have learned to make gumbo, even a roux, but it is never as good as the real thing.

    I am sure Meela will be alright, but I will keep her and you in my thoughts just in case,

    xoxo

  2. Happy birthday! Excellent chameleon - you could be a Disney artist. You work sounds way too hazardous. I hope it is worth it.

  3. You really captured the cuteness.
    Meela will be back to her old self quickly I am sure.
    Glad to hear you are better.
    Take care.

  4. Wonderful job on the drawings! Meela will be fine, she'll recover much faster that you, don't worry. HUGS for both of you though.

  11. These are great! I especially like the top one where the eyes are different directions. That is also one of the reason I always liked chameleons too!

    Take care of yourself! We can't have you messing up your drawing arm! Hope you both recover quickly!

    And happy birthday!

  13. Hey Alex, thanks for your comments on my "river arno" sketch! Love your chameleons man, and I also enjoy watching their independently controlled eyes roll around. Disney's the best, well, Pixar isn't bad either...My best to Meela...hope all went well!

  14. I hope everything wetn right for Meela! Tangled is my daughter's current favorite movie, she must have seen it a dozen times already. I thought it was fun, too, and I can tell your rendering of Pascal is spot on! And of course, Happy belated birthday - Joyeux Anniversaire en retard!

  19. You did a great job! Your sketch looks just like the character. My husband and I bought Tangled for our daughter. We ended up liking it more than she did. It is a cute movie.

  21. Hey Alex, Late 'Happy Birthday'!
    I love your Chameleon he's sooo cute. Your Meela will be ok, these days most surgery is done 'key hole' less invasive and faster healing.

  22. Great sketch Alex.....Happy Birthday, wish I could have joined you, haven't drawn gumbo (or eaten it) Next time can you make a sketch? Don't worry about your kitten, she'll be fine (better than having babies!)
