Disney Park Pals... AGAIN!

     I would say about 90% of the stuff I draw comes from ideas I have for toys that I wish existed. I've spoken before about my Park Pals toys idea and how I eventually wasn't that happy with what I came up with. Well, here we have a take two, of sorts!

     I decided that, instead of trying to draw the Disney Park characters as collectible figurines, I would just draw them as... well, drawings! Pretty bold concept, huh? There might not be anything particularly exciting or innovative about these, but I had a lot of fun making them! 

     Thanks to the very awesome Disney Character Central for providing several wonderful photos, which I used as reference. Stay tuned for more to come!

     Are there any particular Disney Park meet and greet characters that you'd like to see in the lineup? If so, feel free to post your request below!

Rebooting Ruxpin - Leota the Woodsprite

     Now that I've finished drawing penguins for a while, I thought I'd go back to my ongoing attempt at redesigning the characters from the Teddy Ruxpin series. Next in line... Leota the Woodsprite!

     This one differs the most from the original version than any of the others I've done so far. Originally, Leota was just a tiny blonde girl with pink butterfly wings. I wanted her to have more of a fantasy element to her design, so I gave her leafy green skin and elf ears. Plus, she has some Red Fraggle-esque pigtails to add a little more feistiness to her appearance.
