Fan Art Friday


The Croods fan art keeps pouring in, and I am LOVING it! Today's first piece comes from Stefan Ellison (a.k.a. MrCoat). It's an INSANELY ENDEARING portrait of Eep. Do you recognize her pose? It's from the scene in the second trailer where Eep is given her first pair of shoes. It's the funniest film clip released thus far, and Stefan's depiction of it is spot-on. Look at those half-moon eyes and smile. They perfectly portray Eep's giddy delight. Heck, they perfectly capture MY delight -- at this drawing!

This next piece is from Luis Garcia (a.k.a. tigerbreath13). It's the candy-colored cast of an as-yet-unmade spin-off of The Croods -- The Macawnivores. Hanna and Barbera's grandkids need to re-form the company a.s.a.p. so they can launch this as a Saturday morning cartoon. I know I'd get up extra early on the weekend if it meant eating my Cocoa Puffs in front of this fanged 'n' furry foursome.

A quick aside: Most art classes offered in public schools push life drawing and reward realism. So when I come across an artist whose work is UNABASHEDLY CARTOONY, I've gotta give them a special shout-out for their persistence of vision and dedication to the silly. Keep drawing like you're drawing, Luis. YOUR WORK IS WONDERFUL!
