The Line it is Drawn #196 – Disney Mash-Ups!

line6-27-display

Welcome to our weekly gallery of amazing art by our great collection of artistic talent, all working from YOUR suggestions!

Go follow Comics Should Be Good on Twitter (if you have Twitter, that is – if you don’t, you can go sign up). Here is our Twitter page… http://twitter.com/csbg. And here are the Comics Should Be Good writers who are on Twitter (the links go to the person’s Twitter account) – myself, Greg Hatcher, Chad Nevett, Kelly Thompson, Bill Reed, Greg Burgas, Sonia Harris, Melissa K. and Ken H.

I update the blog’s Twitter account updates whenever a new post is put up on the blog, so it’s an easy way to keep up with the blog. In addition, I post new content on the blog’s Twitter account.

Now on to the bit!

So every week, I ask a question here. You reply to it on our Twitter page (just write @csbg with your reply) and our blog sketch artists will each pick one of your suggestions and I will post them here every week. So every week you will have a new question and you will see the choices picked from the previous week. Here is an archive of all the previous editions of The Line It Is Drawn!

To qualify, you have to be following us when you reply – so go follow us and then give your answer to the following question/challenge (All suggestions due by 3pm Pacific Friday).

The topic is…

In honor of the 4th of July, come up with suggestions for Captain America drawings. Team-up characters with Cap, have different villains (or heroes, if you so choose) fight Cap, put Cap into different time periods, put Cap into different art styles – basically any idea you can come up with for a drawing centered around Captain America. Be creative! Go nuts!

Read on for the sketches that came about courtesy of the last question/challenge!

Team-up or mash-up a comic character with a Walt Disney character.

Enjoy!

I’ll put them in alphabetical order based on the name of the Twitter user who made the suggestion.

Those Disney Princesses are great!

Nextwave must be the next Disney toon.

Also, “Let’s get dangerous!” indeed.

The Punisher/Bambi one will haunt my nightmares. Very well done.

This week really knocked it out of the park. Well done, everyone!

Now, I won´t be able to take Anna´s/ Scarlet Witch´s song out of my head…

This is the best batch of TLIID I’ve seen. Top notch all the way through. I think the Justice Princesses is my favorite, especially Aqua-Ariel and Wondapocahontas.

All of them were great.

That Pocahontas/Wonder woman is epic

The Punisher/Bambi one was amazing!

And the Robin Hood/Green Arrow made me smile, I wanna take a walk with those guys.

I think I’d have gone with Jasmine as Green Lantern, personally, but that Justice Princesses image is great. (Especially Rapunzel as Flash.)

Best Line is Drawn in a while!

Love the Super-Goof vs. Darkwing cover!

The line it is drawn did amazing work! Shout out to my brother Nelson (robin hood/green arrow)!! Excellent job! Keep it up

Imagining Jim Cummings saying some of the iconic lines from Dark Knight in his DW voice is very satisfying.

“I want you to remember, Goofy… the one who beat you…”

The “Not Disney” Castle emblem alone wins the week.

Man, I’ve just had no luck with the suggestions this year.

Great stuff this week! I particularly love Robin Hood/Green Arrow and the Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

Omg that Punisher and Bambi is too much! XD

ALL of these were great. The Disney Princesses should have their own week in the near future, methinks.

I’m going through each of these drawings, and literally smiling with nostalgia/pleasure from each one. Excellent job everyone. I laughed at Bambi’s dialog.

Oh my gosh I laughed out loud at some of these!

Bambi saying “Tell my mother I said hi” was hilarious!

Scrooge looks freaking awesome on the Indiana Jones one.

I absolutely LOVE the Darkwing ones.

Great work as always, everyone!

Darkwing Duck returns WINS!

That Robin Hood/Green Arrow one is just incredibly cheery. Cant help but smile by looking at it.

The costume design on the princesses JL is outstanding.

“The Duck Knight Returns” was an actual comic put out by Boom when it launched its Darkwing Duck series. And it featured some DKR parody covers:

http://darkwingblog.wordpress.com/2010/10/17/putting-the-dark-in-duck-knight/

Oh, Lord. Just posted the Dark Duck to FB with a link.

So much awesome this week but I gotta give props to Cynthia for her epic Constantine piece.

Oh, how Mickey! :-D

Fantasiatic work everyone!

Wasn’t sure what any artist could do with those suggestions I made, but, as usual, the artists did great work!

Nelson – Love that casual saunter by RH & GA!

Cynthia & Amanda – Constantine’s reaction cracked me up!

Uncle Woofie – Wow! Just wow! And then after being stunned by the colors & foreground art, I noticed what you had the Mindless Ones doing, especially “Calvin”. Bwahahahaha!

As many have said, super strong week.

Punisher and Bambi is genius. Down to the credits for Kraven the Hunter.

Mulan/Cassie Cain has a really nice Disney feel.

And I go with Kamino that Jasmine, friend of the genie, should maybe have been Green Lantern. But what it really means is there are many more Disney princesses and JL members that need to be done! Maybe Jasmine can be Martian Manhunter…or Firestorm…. But we need Sleeping Beauty, and Belle, and Merida as Green Arrow, ‘natch! Atom, one of the Hawks, someone else?) The Frozen girls as Ice and Ice Maiden would be too obvious, probably….

Not a bad one in the bunch for sure….

When Lilo and Stitch came out, all the advance ads had classic Disney characters extremely annoyed with Stitch; Fernando caught that spirit perfectly. I can only imagine what he did to the Shockwave Rider.

Having seen Caanan’s X-Babies, I’m not sure I can ever buy a replacement (that includes Skottie Young), but damn if Sean doesn’t come close. Li’l Magneto is a welcome addition.

I love that Mickey MODOK smokes for some reason; I can’t always explain them, but it just seems right.

Is there a Norse legend where Loki loses a hand? Because he’s about to….

And then we have back-to-back-to-back awesome…Bambi is one cold mofo…. Kraven as the Hunter… and the NotDisney logo should be trademarked by you, Marco! You should earn some coin for that brilliant piece of work.

By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth, Woofie knows his Dr. Strange…poor Dormammu would be begging to go into the Purple Dimension after this! I presume the cursive “D” encircling Mickey’s portal is for Disney, but I could buy it as Ditko as well.

Marco’s is the best; no, maybe it’s Woofie’s… Holy shit, Thea! One of the great sequences in any movie, with all its elements distilled into one splash… and the perfect Constantine reaction. I wonder now why I ever thought Hellboy was a better match for that.

I know the arrangement of the pieces is by an arbitrary order, so that makes Robin Hood/Green Arrow look slight in comparison to the three just before it. It’s not. Go back and look at it again.. how the animation style was captured, the smile on Ollie’s face… see if you can keep the theme song to that movie out of your head now. You can’t.

Recent graduate Rachel Ordway (God, I feel old every time I think of that) has been bringing it at a high level every week, and this proves it. For one thing, she gives Cassandra Cain (seriously, DC? You do Batman issues set in Hong Kong, and you import the guy from JAPAN instead of using her? God!) a touch of lightness that the character has had in her best exposures, and a sparring session with Mulan creates a scene that you didn’t even know was needed until it was there. She did this before with Cap and Zinda Blake, something I sent in about five suggestions for continuing next week. (Hint, hint!)

You know, if Stitch and Rocket DID team up, the others would be out of work anyway. Glad to see 626 get the love this week — that may be Disney’s least-acknowledged great movie. I blame the meh DTV sequels.

We all know what song Axel’s daughter the Heiress has been singing non-stop, don’t we? Every parent with children knows Medusa’s pain. Even down in Virginia, we blame last winter’s snow and cold on old what’s-her-name. So of course, she gets Emma Frost… but adding Wanda just makes it priceless.

No, Nick Perks did not ripoff BOOM, as was obliquely suggested above. He did his own homages, and the first one was impossible to do without looking like the BOOM work. If you read Nick’s deviantart page, he is usually the first one to tell you what he doesn’t like about his pieces. I’m going to guess that Darkwing’s legs and feet gave him fits in Triumphant. But the blood on his feathers is something that you don’t notice also came from the source material. The only real addition I would make? Putting Carrie Kelly glasses on Goslyn (Gosalind? They never were too clear about that). But Goofy’s eyes on the final cover are simply perfect.

I love that the Monsters, Inc. crew knows the Ghostbusters — and are afraid of them. Good job by Mathieu in catching their dialogue and specific references so well.

Cinderella is a good Green Lantern; a Power Ring is even better than a Fairy Godmother, right? But Jasmine would make an excellent Hawk, and the missing Lilo as Atom, perhaps? I heard a legend that sailors consider it a curse to have the trident pointing down, maybe that’s why Ariel got Aquaman? (Yes I know why she did. The curse, supposedly, is why the Seattle Mariners stunk for so many years — their logo was a trident made to look like an M. It could be that they were just lousy, but a curse makes for a better story.)

Oh, Chaz… Indy doesn’t stand a chance against Anatomically Correct Duck Tales. (Go look that up on YouTube if you want your childhood — or early college years, cough, cough — ruined. I dare you.)

Bambi/Punisher
Dr Strange/Sorcerer’s Apprentice
Green Arrow/Robin Hood
Darkwing Duck

Hands-down winners!

Great stuff this week!

I’m watching Frozen right now with the three-year old, and at the point Anna goes from asleep to running around the castle in 2 seconds, I remarked, “Maybe *she* should be the Flash.” My wife replied, “No….Impulse.”

Aquariel was epic.

Ducks…

Why’d it have to be ducks?

Some of my childhood favorites represented (like Robin Hood, and my favorite “Fantasia” segment: “Night on Bald Mountain” [I was drawn to horror even then, I guess]), but my very favorite thing of this week is the look on Maleficent’s face. Neither of those dudes has the slightest chance, and it is immediately clear at a glance. That’s the mark of great face-work.
