The picture looks as if it came straight from one of WBs classic Chuck Jones’ Loony Tunes. The color, art design, the character’s faces, even the back ground takes me back to my childhood Saturday mornings. I almost expect to see Taz’s Tornado whizzing somewhere in the back ground, or perhaps Bugs and Daffy arguing over Elmer’s rifle. I know Disney’s "Home on the Range" had nothing to do with WB, but I can’t help but see what I think I see. It is great cartoon art, and its a style that will never go out of style.

TO BARE THE CURSETO BARE THE CURSE
by Linda J.
DESCRIPTION: My entry for Disney-By-Eras “Forgotten Ones” Contest.
Based on Beauty and the Beast/Beauty and the Beast Enchanted Christmas. My thoughts of what it might have been like for Maestro Forte and Prince Adam the first night they were transformed by the enchantress, told through Forte’s POV.
RATED: PG-13 for strong adult language.
At first there was just darkness in my quasi-slumber. Beautiful, peaceful, glorious darkness. Although, perhaps I was not sleeping at all, but rather being remade into something wonderfully new. I felt myself waking up, um, becoming aware of myself I suppose you could call it; and for the first time in my long and dreary life, I felt… alive. Not some weak and freakish form of a man I had been lotted in life to become, but strong and, dare I say, invincible? I looked out in front of me and realized I towered above everything else in the room; oh what a marvelo
Some of the most underrated and forgotten Disney movies are the direct-to-video sequels that were released in the VHS hey-day. Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas is one of the more interesting movies that serves within the Beauty and the Beast narrative. This piece delves into one of my favourite aspects that we get to see in the movie; the transformation of Prince Adam into the Beast. The fact that we see this transformation described by Forte offers an interesting perspective. Here he is written more like a sympathetic character, exploring the relationship between him and his master. The use of language is spot on, I can just read the thoughts imagining Tim Curry saying them himself.

Great composition and vibrant colours. It's nice to see a big cast picture, particularly for a Studio Ghibli movie that not nearly enough people know about. Love how each of the characters are drawn here.
I admit, I knew nothing of this movie until I saw this picture.
Seeing the young girl’s hair blowing in the wind as well as the ribbon on her hat makes me interested in this character. This one scene without any backdrop or any details other than just the girl, makes me want to know her story. Not very many drawings can interest me that way. This one does.
I was interested enough to go look up this movie Howl's Moving Castle on Youtube, and sure enough I found the trailer. As a result, I think I will take the time to watch it in the near future.
The picture made me smile as it reminded me of my childhood, having grown up with mickey mouse. It reminds me of the original style that made me fall in love with disney.
Excellent job everyone. We can expect the next series of contest themes / art prompts to be voted on around April.
Until then, have fun and enjoy your day!
