Celestine by TysonTan Celestine by TysonTan
Celestine the little mouse from the animated movie “Ernest & Celestine” . She is intelligent, has attitude, acts fast and is very well animated, plus a perfect voice acting, without a doubt my favorite animated character so far. I have strong resonance with Celestine because we share a similar story of having a strong motivation of drawing pictures as little children, but the adults was expecting something else from us and they never liked us.

This picture is drawn using only my left hand. I was a left-handed child just like Celestine, but the adults “corrected” my “bad habit” before I went to elementary school. This probably impeded my recognition development and contributed to my long-term learning difficulties. I never did well at school before I went to college.

Celestine inspired me to live as myself. I decided to re-enable my left hand after I watched the movie. I haven't been holding a pen using my left hand for 25 years. Completing this picture seemed impossible at the beginning. But I thought if I don't try, I can never have my left hand back. So I pushed myself to the limit. No drawing assistance like ruler, vector tool was used.

And I made it! :) Although it is just the beginning, I was convinced that one can do anything if you are determined like Celestine! ...But come to think of it, I have already done switching from Windows to GNU/Linux, Adobe Photoshop to Krita/GIMP. How difficult can it be to switch from right-handed to left-handed anyways! XD

At first I need to say that this drwing looks really good!
I love the easy made background, but instead of making the pice boring as it often is here it makes a great effect, I think.#+It brings out Celestine much better as most other backgrounds wold!

I have to say that I have neer seen this film, but since you say so great things about it I really wanna watch it now ;u;

And as I've read that you drew it with your left hand and that other people made your right handed I was like: WOW, how is this possible?
If I try drawing with my left hand my art looks even more worse as my first drawing.. lol X'D
much respeckt to you for this c:

so now to the actuall critique~
I can totally say that you have a lot experience in art. Your coloring style looks really good, and as I think I havn't seen this kind of style never till jet!
You also made her movement really good. She looks as if she is walking out of the picture right now.

So I have to say that this is a great pice of art!
Even if you could have made her more intereacting with other things.

Have a nice day, Ioko~

This drawing is the cutest of them all with you art inspire us and our community! This mouse is a female, with her brown bag, blue boots and dress, and a red jacket, and going on an adventure on a winter day. An adventurous, brave, genius, and courageous warrior who fought the land and sea.

Her blue boot looks shiny and more cute in her appearance just like the movie and her voice and singing voice just like an heavenly angel (not Angel from X-Men). She cries like a spirit.

So that's why I like that art and that art is look like the combination of Kingdom Hearts game, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and Captain America: Winter Soldier.
