In memory of Robin Williams, here is a set of a few of my favorite Nostalgia Critic bits from reviews of his films. I, like countless others, grew up watching his movies and still view many of them today. He was a very significant part of many of our childhoods and one of the most unique and talented actors we’ll ever know. Thank you for making me laugh and smile ever since I can remember, Robin. You brought so many characters to life in ways no one else could and you brightened up so many lives. We’ll never forget you.</3 - Donna
I too grew up to Robin Williams. My first encounter with him was with Aladdin and to this day I still consider Genie my favorite Disney sidekick and one of my all time favorite Disney characters. He was one of my idols and inspiration. The reason I enjoy comedy and try to make others laugh by saying stuff I think is funny as I want to try to bring a smile to their face and happiness to them the same way he did to me many times. I’ll miss him but he’ll never be out of my heart. (also I like him as Batty) - Goleon
Some of my ultimate favorite films (Hook and The Fisher King) stared this very talented man. He made me smile and laugh during dark times of my childhood, and hell, even my adulthood. You were much loved and appreciated, Mr. Williams. Goodnight.
Q:Has anyone ever told you that your style of art is similar to Margret Keane's? I hope you do because your art is beautifully stunning and you seem to be almost sub-consciously influenced by the way she draws eyes.
Hello Anon! Actually I have been told that before! I always take it as a compliment. I enjoy looking at her work, but I only discovered her when I was in college (much later after my style had been developed). A huge influence for me while growing up though was Wendy Pini. She co-created/made the artwork for the long running comic series, Elfquest. I always loved how she depicted the eyes of her characters. I find the eyes to be the most enjoyable part to draw probably because of her. :) Thanks for your comment!
P.S. And if you enjoy fantasy comics you should definitely check out Elfquest. The art that graces those pages is truly amazing to look at.
I like to think that Howl and Calcifer just sat down and had tea and a chat once in a while. You would too if your fireplace were a sentient fire demon. It’s one of the perks.
(Super late submission to ghibli jam, which I only found out about at 10PM last night (!) Process on twitter.)
Look at the corset in the first pic. Magic, beibg able to do that while you can hardly breath.
Raoul may have his wealth and title, Erik may have his creative genius, but there is one thing that the Daroga has that they will never have.
Thick luscious facial hair.
Poor Daroga he puts up with so much in the book. I do love how the narrator talks about him. It sounds like he thought he was super dreamy.
