FERNGULLY: THE LAST RAINFOREST _ fanart by DeeJay-Alien FERNGULLY: THE LAST RAINFOREST _ fanart by DeeJay-Alien
FernGully fanart which I've finished a month ago and haven't submitted yet.

I watched this movie when I was little kid and decided to re-watch it! I'm so inspired by it!!! :D
Hexxus is one of the sexiest villains I've ever seen! I love him so much since my childhood! :heart: BTW, I've named him "The Spirit of Mazut".

I love Hexxus.
I love everything about him except his nose. XD
I love the character design itself! I love the industrial feel of it!!! I love how his flesh's made of smoke and fuel.
I love how he's manly!!! :heart: I love the metaphor of this character.
I love Tim Curry's voice! I love the music!!! I love the lyrics. I love how they're dirty, sexy and industrial!!! :D
That's the most fav scene of mine: [link]

I love Crysta too. She's so beautiful and feminine...
I've noticed some time ago that those cartoons of 1990s... They're so special... Many of them have the idea of real male and real female beauty and sexiness. They create perfect male and perfect female characters, there's everything so true and so perfect in them! :) I love cartoons for it! :D Especially FernGully, Beauty and the Beast and Pebble and the Penguin.)

I didn't want to redraw this cartoon's style (though I like it))) and made it in my own one with a huge influence of Mucha and Art Nouveau. Maybe they're very hypertrophied... I wanted to express what I'm feeling about those characters with it.)

Hope you like.)

You really do get better and better, and this shows a lot of growth. You use the art nouveau tropes well but still make it your own.

I had to adjust my screen to make it come in better, which is probably more my computer than anything, but the light she shines kind of went too far up into the villiain's area for me. Just a preference.

You do get a sense of perspective from the way you separate the colors and textures of the heroine and villain. It enhances his advancing.

I notice that you make many of your women heavy-hipped, and I suspect you may be that way yourself (many of our drawn characters resemble ourselves).

Few things I would change:
1) you have her left leg coming forward, but her hips are staionary, face on. The pelvic area should be slightly turned to allow the leg to move.

2) Her waist is too thin for the hips and too high. She needs internal organs somewhere. ;)

3) I would've worked about with the lettering a bit more so her legs and foot didn't cover it, perhaps reduce it a bit and separate the "Fern" and "gully" so more of the "G" shows. I think you deleted part of the "G" that'd show on the right side of her leg. I'd also work with the smaller lettering so as to show the "R" and to not be so lost in the darker geeen on the poster's right.
What do you think?
