How To Draw Mickey Mouse | Tutorial

Posted on

Greetings,

So I get a lot of requests to do tutorials for drawing and I have always been quite apprehensive.

However last night I filmed a video demonstrating how to draw Mickey Mouse.

It was the first tutorial I have ever done so I’m not great at it but if you do enjoy it and find it helpful please let me know because I would love to do more in the future.

Also, if you have any requests as to who I should do a tutorial on next please do let me know.

Hope you enjoy,

Disney Mural | Work In Progress

Posted on

Hi guys,

Wanted to share with you another sneak peak at my Disney mural so I have made a video showing some clips of the characters I have painted so far.

Please check it out and share the video, it would mean the world to me.

And as always please let me know what you think of it so far!

Until next time,

Sneak Peek | Disney Mural

Posted on

So if I have been awol recently it is because I have been a busy bee (ha get it?!). I have finally started a project that I have been planning for a

very long time now and that is a DISNEY MURAL!!

As you may or may not know I am a huge Disney fan (as in animated classics) so I thought I would put together two of my favourite things; Disney and art, and create a mural in my bedroom.

While I am very far off actually being finished I thought I would show you a sneak peek of the progress so far.

I’ve worked in this for about 5 days now (over the past two weeks not consecutively)IMG_0797

So this is half the mural. PLEASE note that it is nowhere near finished so it will get much better, but do let me know what you think of it so far and let me know if there are any characters I HAVE to include!

Until next time,

Bee 🙂

 

The Disney Tag!

Posted on

Got a notification today telling me it’s my one year anniversary on WordPress! Aww!

To celebrate I thought I’d do what I do best, that is talk about Disney.

I saw this tag going around youtube, and seeing as I don’t make that many youtube videos I thought I would do it on my blog (this is also my way of saying sorry I’ve been gone so long and yes I am back properly now!) Also I mixed two tags together cause its more fun that way!

So let’s get started with the questions.

1. A scene in any Disney movie you wish you could experience.

SO difficult to choose just one but at the end of the day I’ll have to go with the lantern scene in Tangled

Not only is this one of my favourite Disney movies but its such a beautiful scene not only because of the romantic setting for Rapunzel and Flynn but also because she knows these lanterns are somehow related to her life…she just doesn’t know why yet.

2. An unforgettable experience/moment you’ve had at the parks.

This is very hard for me to admit but… I HAVE NEVER BEEN TO DISNEYLAND!!! *cries in the corner* But I am saving up to go to Disneyland in florida so it’s going to happen!!!
3. What non-Disney song(s) reminds you/brings back memories of Disney and/or the parks?

I was only talking about this with my mam this morning because the song came on the radio!

It’s Louis Armstrong singing What A Wonderful World because I remember as a kid an ad on the Disney channel for loads of the animated classics and that song was in the background so now every time I hear it I think of Disney!
4. When was the first time you went to a Disney park?

Quit asking questions about Disney parks!!!

5. If you could choose any Disney character to be your best friend, who would you choose?

Can I pick Meeko even though he’s a raccoon?

Okay Meeko can be my sidekick but if I had to pick a person it would probably be Rapunzel or Aladdin or Belle.

…No…I’m gonna stick with Meeko…
6. Who are you favorite Disney princesses?

Belle and Rapunzel!
7. Name a scene/moment in any Disney movie that never fails to make you cry.

Possibly the saddest moment in any Disney film…or film in general…

I feel like crying at the picture alone!
8. What is the first Disney movie you remember seeing?

Not necessarily the first Disney film I ever saw (although it is quite possible) but the first one I remember seeing is The Lion King which came out in 1994 (when I was 2…THAT WAS 20 YEARS AGO!!!! – I feel old now)
9. What is your favorite Disney movie?

This is a very difficult question to answer. But if I had to choose just one…It would be Beauty and the Beast!
10. Who is your favorite Disney villain?

Someone once said to me “I love how you have an obsession with the Disney villains” and I was like “what? No I don’t” then I thought about it and realised I actually do so to choose just one villain would be very difficult…which is why I’m not going to! I’ll narrow it down to my favourite five. (I know that’s still loads but I CAN’T DECIDE!!!)

Gaston. Jafar. Scar. Ursula. Cruella DeVil

*Shameless self plug* Check out my Disney Villains painting.

11. What is your least favorite Disney movie?

That’s like asking a mother which is her least favourite child!

Out of the classics, I’ll probably say post Disney renaissance period…so maybe Home on the Range?
12. What is your favorite Disney song?

Wait. Ever? How am I suppose to choose? Ugh…why did I decide to do this tag?

Maybe A Whole New World (Aladdin) Part of your World (The Little Mermaid) or The Beauty and the Beast soundtrack…wah I wanna pick them all!!!
13. What Disney Character (s) has your personality or has your dream personality?

I’m pretty sure that I am Rapunzel’s (Tangled) and Anna’s (Frozen) love child. You know when Rapunzel sings When Will My Life Begin and she lists off all the things she does? Like painting, baking, sewing, reading, etc. That pretty sums up what I do in my free time. Not only that but I’m quite naïve like her and I always want to see the best in people. Okay, this is getting too deep, lets move on. Anna on the other hand is very clumsy (me in a nutshell) and again very optimistic about the outside world and all that kind of stuff so I’d definitely say they are the two characters that have my personality.

My dream personality on the other hand would probably involve a bit more of Belle’s grace and demure nature. Maybe some of Mulan’s feisty-ness and bad-ass-ness. And I would throw in some of Timon and Pumbaa’s chilled ‘Hakuna Matata’ approach to life because I could really benefit from having no worries.
14. If you could change any scene in a Disney movie, what would it be and why?

I know this is weird, (SPOILER ALERT FOR TANGLED!) but I really wish they didn’t have to cut Rapunzel’s hair SO short at the end of Tangled. I would have preferred if they kept it a bit longer. The short hair just doesn’t suit her.
15. If you had to get stuck on any ride in any Disney park for more than 30 minutes, what would you want it to be?

The teacups…I don’t like rides and that seems like the mildest one. Plus I’m Irish so I love tea, and what’s better than sitting in a giant teacup!

16 Which Disney voice actor would you most like to meet?

Jim Cummings! Simply because he is amazing and so very talented!

17 Your favorite princess dress/outfit?

I actually love Tiana’s dress because it’s perfectly incorporated with the movie (looking like a lily pad) so that’s pretty cool but I also love Belle’s yellow dress!

18 Your favorite Disney soundtrack?

Anything Alan Menken puts his name to I love, so Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Tangled the list goes on and on. Probably the most beautiful would be The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

All time favourite though if push came to shove is Beauty and the Beast.

19 Your favorite “iconic” moment?

The lantern scene from Tangled or The Circle of Life scene with Rafiki lifting Simba above the rock! Also I have a cat and yes I force him to do that scene with me all the time!

20 Best Disney kiss?

 

21 If you could live in any world from a Disney movie, which would you choose?

Um Neverland so I never had to grow up and I could watch Disney movies forever? Yeah that sounds good.

22 Which Disney princess has the best sidekicks?

HAS to be Pocahontas, but that’s just because I am in love with Meeko. Like, I actually googled if it were legal to own a pet racoon in Ireland.

How can you not love him?!

23 If you could have a party themed around any Disney movie, which one would you pick?

Definitely Alice in Wonderland!

24 If you could choose the plot/adaptation for the next Disney movie, what would it be?

That’s for me to know and for you to find out in about 10 years when Disney buys the rights! *Pipe dream*

25 Which Disney movie, even if it’s not your favorite, will always have a special place in your heart and for what reason?

Probably Beauty and the Beast obviously because it is my favourite but also because it was Howard Ashman’s last film before he died and he was so crazily talented and is one of the main reasons I love Disney films so much.

Beauty and the Beast is actually dedicated to Howard Ashman too.

 

So there’s the tag. Hope you enjoyed!

I tag everyone who is reading this to do this tag because I really want to see what you come up with.

Disney Villains | Painting

Posted on

I finally finished my Disney villains painting!

It took 4 days to complete, so I probably spent between 25-30 hours working on it which is kind of a lot of time!

viallains

In true Disney fashion I have also included a hidden Mickey somewhere in the painting.

It may be hard to see from this image however so I will also leave the video link below which I would really appreciate you watching, it will probably also help you find the hidden Mickey!

Sadly I did not have enough room to include all the Disney villains, or even all of my favourites! I had to leave out Mother Gothel and the Queen of Hearts, both of which are two of my favourites. But I felt that the painting would have been overcrowded and cluttered and it just wouldn’t look good.

If you have any questions about how I completed the painting, or any questions of painting/drawing in general please feel free to ask and I will answer you as best I can.

Also if you have any suggestions as to who/what I should draw/paint next let me know.

I hope to draw Rebel Wilson, Skylar Astin, and Shailene Woodley soon. And I also want to try painting an Audrey Hepburn portrait.
