Demon Mickey, Take 1

Demon Mickey (Attempt 1), dry pastel

Oh gosh. First off, I'm not super pleased with this at all, it has so many issues. The little kid doesn't look little enough, and doesn't interact with Mickey the way it ought to. Mickey Mouse looks too happy, even though that is what I was going for, and he needs to be more raw and distorted. I like the chainsaw itself, the way it juts out, but the way Mickey is holding it is not dynamic enough. Looks like shit, but here you go Eric. There is a good chance that I'll tackle this subject again in the future, but I can't say how long that will be, and so here is my first attempt. Might do it with a different medium, like acrylic paint, or a combination of acrylic paint and I don't know, we'll see. A Dadaism collage sort of approach might work. Hmm.....


  1. Oh man, I couldn't help but maintain a sadistic smile as I read through this whole thing. The very idea of a demonic Mickey is just hilarious. The piece came out pretty good, and I love how the kid being butchered was apparently a fangirl. :P

    I'll live up to my end of the bargain with the guy prancing in the field request. It's occurred to me that I've never really extesnsively drawn anyone running, much less daintily skipping. ^^

    It may take a while, as I'm sort of a perfectionist, but rest assured I will do it.

  2. Ya, I don't have the patience to be a perfectionist. It's all sort of hit or miss with me. lol And I usually figure if I can add enough color and movement to a drawing, I can make anything into enough of a hit to please me.

    I'll do this over again sometime, though, and it will be awesome.
