TGMD - Don't Follow Me by Yaraffinity TGMD - Don't Follow Me by Yaraffinity
TGMD = The Great Mouse Detective

Don't follow me, I'm going somewhere dangerous.

As if Birdie is gonna listen to him... NOPE.

I was going to draw a background of my own, but I got caught up in work so I quickly rendered an existing background from the movie.

Birdie Moore (c) me
Basil of Baker Street (c) Walt Disney, The Great Mouse Detective - based on Eve Titus' books.

Dawwww, that's so cute the way he's so protective of her. I like the way he looks so deeply in her eyes. :love:

The one thing that questions me are the shadows. How did you do them? 
Otherwise the picture is great! :) (Smile)

The shadows on the ground you mean?

That's done with Photoshop.

I love the pose, it casts so much emotion across
you draw Basil really well and Birdie is such a nice contrast to his character
but Basil should know telling some one not to follow him is a waste of time as they never listen hehe
great work Yara :meow:

This is the perfect example of a "Listen closely!" pose. I love how he's got her in his grasp and is practically staring into her soul.

It's been said that Olivia probably pulled this same act with Basil in the movie. She quietly followed Basil and Dawson up until they reached the hole in the wall of Holmes' flat. Basil turns to see her and groans. He's annoyed at her for disobeying, but he has to allow her to come since it would take too much time to go back. Going somewhere dangerous means going somewhere that sparks curiosity!

Ah yeah - I can imagine Olivia doing the same as Birdie here!
Poor Basil, all these curious and stubborn souls tailing behind him :XD:

You're welcome! :hug:

One thing I noticed: his hat and coat are missing yet he's already made it to the upper level in Holmes' flat. I'm kind of led to believe that Birdie has those items hidden somewhere, but she won't budge in handing them over unless he allows her to come along! :D

This is simply perfect; I am LOVING your way of colouring. You do such a brilliant job with traditional media and what more, you make it look so flawless and easy, despite it not being.
I love their poses; Especially Birdie's is perfect, especially accompanied with her facial expression. It seems to be saying something along the lines of: "Right, as if that is going to happen." Oh, you adorable cheeky girl.
Basil is so spot on, design-wise there is not critique what-so-ever, and I am completely in love with the outfit. So much class in one room, it's hard to contain it.
I am also really happy to see that you added a background, because it gives the piece so much more depth and almost makes it look like a still-photo from the cartoon.

Everything about this piece is just purely brilliant AND adorable to no end. Good job.

This comment seriously made my week. :heart:

It's a blast to work with traditional media - it suits me more than digital.
I also have some nice materials to work with for colouring :)

But thankyou very much for the flattering comment :love:

Heh heh yeah, Birdie seems like she wouldn't care what anyone says, she'll go wherever she pleases :D I love the colors in this, and their expresssions are spot on, it's hilarious how close Basil is and getting all up in her face to get his point across :XD:

Indeedly, Basil's too naive to think Birdie will stay behind. AS IF.

Thankyou very very much though :heart:
