Reflection by Mitch-el Reflection by Mitch-el
A member of the Once-ler fandom wrote some fan fiction that inspired me to draw this here thing-a-ma-do. This took several hours to do, and the last one or two were spent coloring the pajama-clad Once-ler, finalizing the shading process, and simply trying to figure out how I should light the darn thing. As usual, I am not entirely pleased with this, but if I ever redo it it will be way into the future.

Note: This will probably be thrown into the "Scraps" pile at some point, because I'm sure you all are sick of the Once-ler deviations. Ha.

Honestly, If I could give impact 10 stars I would do it!
This piece is so awesomly haunting because the expressions of both characters, the shading, and just the over all style.
The Greed-ler: That amazing smug look you created is so classicacly smooky! And the fact that you gave him a cane totally completes him!
The Once-ler: With him you have created the pure shock and realization of him becoming a monster. It is so beautifly done that it makes me feel so sorry for the caharacter in the picture, I seriously want to jump in and help him! I love that you made him blushing, to me it gives him that "spark" of innocence he had at the begining of the film.
The shading technique: Its perfect. Absoulutley perfect. I don't believe that anything should be darker or lighter than what it already is. The shading you have made, really finishes this piece with such a thrilling sense of horror!
Overall: This is piece is definitley one of my all time favorites out of the Once-ler fan arts. Thank you so much for not only creating it, but for posting it and sharing it!
I can't wait to see what else you create!

i compleatly agree with *TheArtistChick :3 its awesome i haven't seen the movie though but if this had been done with any character that has 2 sides to them or becomes mad it would be perfect for them too. once-ler looks so scared and the pajamas make him look like a little kid its amazing

Why, thank you! I'm flattered that you like it! :thanks:

The film itself is worth a look for the visuals, if nothing else. It's very beautifully animated and the designs are appealing. It's not the greatest film on Earth, but I'm sure you'd appreciate the aesthetics, at least. :nod:

Excuse me...SCRAPS??!!? oh nononono! I will not allow such a thing! (not that I have any control over what you do x3) This piece is way too good for scraps. Just sayin'~

The hours you put into this really does show and it looks quite fantastic! From the expressions to the final coloring touches...I love it

Ha-ha!! You're so nice. I still don't like it that much, though. The saying "you're your own worst critic" is an understatement! Ah well. Who knows? I might leave it up. *chuckle*

Thank you so much, dude! Really, you're too kind. :hug:

This is perfect! I don't see why you want to put it in the Scrap pile... It's perfect just the way it is. :meow:
