Frollo's Turmoil WIP by tavington Frollo's Turmoil WIP by tavington
DOWNLOAD FOR TEH FULL OF TEH VIEWY!

Ok, so I've completely and UTTERLY fallen in love with Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame again. I must have listened to Menken's soundtrack and watched it 3 times this weekend.

I haven't drawn Frollo and Esmeralda since I was like, 14!
And Frollo is a bastard! But we all love him, right?

Man I drew some pretty sick stuff back then!

Can't find some of it, but if you want to see a collection of "Old Skool" Frollo drawings from my youth, look no further, as I put them up here: [link]

I used to use Crayola pencils to colour my FrolloxEsme art then, and I'm a bit stuck as to what to do now. Do I rekindle that love for the pair and do pencils? Or splash out with great smoke and fire effects and go all digital? I can't decide.

Comment and crit welcomed :D

Oh, and "Hellfire" is the best Disney song ever

Period :3

Many thanks to :iconahrum-stock: for the stock photo:

I love his expression. This drawing is such a tease, though! Just grab her, why don't you, Claude! You know you want to!

"She dances naked in my soul and sleep won't come..."
I recalled this song when I saw your drawing :3
And Esmeralda looks here even more audacious than she were in the cartoon x)
Anyway you did a splendid job!

LOL! I will try and do some work on it this weekend! Still undecided if I should do traditional or tablet colouring.
Took my tablet out the other day and put some of the basic colours down and it just didn't seem to be happening. ;__;
Ah, maybe this weekend, I can get "in the zone" with it more.
I'd really like to make this a digital piece, it just takes me damned ages!

Definitely an amazing start.

Also, digital effects would be rather spiffy indeed.

Thanks!

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking, it just takes me ages to get into it.
Once I start I'm not too bad, but it does take ages for me to zone into digital work. Still can't grasp why that is though.
Maybe it's the neck ache I get ;___;

Ah... Look at maybe straightening the screen? Do you wear glasses? You might be straining your neck to see clearly beneath them. I know my mum had that trouble for a while.

Otherwise it's a lot to do with head position in relation to the screen...

tavington Featured By Owner May 8, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Yes I wear glasses, and I think it is the way I'm positioning myself in relation to the screen that's causing it.
Probably why I don't like doing Photoshop work so much, and that I'd rather use a pencil and paper.

Personally I love traditional drawing better because... I'm better at it. But yeah. I forget how my mum fixed the problem. Some help I am. ><' But yeah. I picked it. lol.

Yes I agree, I love traditional drawing too!
I will see, as I am planning another piece very similar to The Legendary Birds this year, so I need to improve on my digital skills!

It is indeed, I totally agree with you on that one, I've been listening to it constantly this week, and to stir up fresh ideas to draw Frollo after such a long break away from him! I'm almost weeping!
Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
