So as I was doing research for this piece (ie rewatching the movie on YouTube), I realized that there are actually two main villains in Pinocchio! Originally I wanted to have Stromboli with a donkey, then I learned that the whole donkey ordeal in Pleasure Island is actually run by a villain called the Coachman, and that Stromboli is just a simple puppeteer. I only planned to do Stromboli for my series, as he is listed by Disney as the "official villain" but now I am considering doing the Coachman as well...what do you guys think? Does Pinocchio deserve the honour of having two spots in my list, or should I move on?
Anyway, this was the first time I tried drawing on a larger canvas (2000x2000 as opposed to 1000x1000) and then scaling down, and it really allowed me to create finer and more detailed elements in my work! In fact, this is probably the most detailed bg I've done so far, and I am only planning to get better!
So yeah. Stromboli! Yay! Like Ratcliffe, I've decided to make her skinny, simply because I'm not very skilled in drawing larger women. Expect all larger villains to be interpreted this way. Also, here are the puppet close-ups: [link]
