Basil's Grave by Shinku-Ame Basil's Grave by Shinku-Ame
Color at long last! Can I get a "Yay!" for a (simple) background? I tried to make it look kind of misty...yeah, fail. Hopefully this is not too dark for you guys.

Basil lounging on his grave with Olivia peeking over his tombstone XD! I imagine that Olivia is not wanting to get caught and being all extra quiet but since Basil is...well, dead/undead he can hear her--maybe smell her blood?

"Olivia, just who I wanted to see and you're just in time for my Midnight snack!"

So this was something I drew out really tiny (2inches by 1inch) and between the type on a handout paper. I was bored...really, really bored. And I had the idea for this bouncing around my head for a day or so but didn't have the time to draw it out. Therefore I used time that I should have used for something more important, to doodle this XD!

Enjoy!

Basil and Olivia are from the movie The Great Mouse Detective (c) Disney
Basil of Baker Street (c) Eve Titus

Yes, run...and then trip XD! Seriously she'd never get away if he wanted to catch her.

true, depending on what type of vampire he was....
How'd he "die"?

I'm still toying with the story of Basil's turning but the main point is that it was Ratigan's fault in some way XD! One of Ratigan's plans involves a vampire or vampire blood and everything gets a little (make that a lot) out of his control when Basil tries to foil his plan.

The end result of his crazy plan is accidentally turning Basil into a vampire without anyone (besides Basil himself) knowing. So its kind of a big surprise when they do find out XD. And of course there will be a fight with Ratigan after Basil gets the hang of being a vampire XD! Sound fun? It did to me and I hope all the drawings come out good XD!

It would make a great fanfic, wouldn't it? Its something I'm debating on writing myself or not--I don't really have the mindset to do a fanfic and finish it although I have tried before. There was also someone who told me that they were going to write a fanfic based on my Vamp Basil drawings and they sent me the basic idea of the story but I have not heard from that person in a while.

Thanks, I'm so glad that you like the color. Vampire Basil loves you too, your blood that is XD!

The other day I had some time and drew out some more Vampire Basil so hopefully I'll have time on the weekend to put something up.

This is a beautiful coloring job, reminds me of an animated cartoon, like some Halloween special. ;) I like your faded spray paint-type style, too. It's simple coloring, but it also brings much more life to your picture! Good job! :D

Thanks, I was thinking it kinda looked like an old Halloween cartoon too! XD Hopefully the faded spray thing makes it look a bit dark and sort of scary. I had fun doing shading Olivia's face, she looks scared enough-like some of the blood drained from her face XD!

Oh, no! So poor Olivia gets caught by Vampire Basil after all! I tell you, little legs are no match for long legs. :no: Ah.. well, it'll be like Interview With a Vampire and her being Kirsten Dunst's character! :XD:

Awesome! I had seen the sketch of this one in your gallery before and the colors you use really set the mood :) Great job!

What program do you use to color? Because if it's one like Photoshop or that uses layers, mist can be kinda easy to render. It's all opacity settings and playing with the blending :D
Reply
:iconshinku-ame:
Shinku-Ame Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2010   General Artist
Aw, thanks. Simple, simple color. It really does make some difference XD.

I use Coral Painter 4(damn, old, old program) only 'cuz I got it for free but all I really use on it are the pencil and eraser-the layers help me a great deal. I need to learn Photoshop XD, I've been too lazy to try to learn it. I figured out how to do a passable mist after the drawing was done so I may put that up later, I have to think on which looks better. Urgh, I hate the blending tool sometimes 'cuz its just not as good as really doing by hand without a computer.

I would so let Basil bite me. I think he looks sexy as a vampire. His attire and the way he's posed, I guess you can say, makes it even better. Wow, I seriously need help...lol

Yeah, he did turn out rather good as a vamp, so much so I'm surprised! And hey, if he wants to bite you--I'm not going to stop him! Well, if you need help what does it say about me as I'm the one that drew it XD?

Shoot, even if you did try to stop him I would stop you from doing so...lol. I want Vampire Basil! I demand Vampire Basil! I seriously need to get a life :XD:! No having a life would mean not drooling over a sexy animated mouse. Yea, me... mental institution...right now. Anyone else with me say 'I.'

Yes, she'll try but it might take her a while (I expect a month or two) 'cuz apparently she's making a lot of things for the coming holidays. Boredom can cause you to try new things so I may take a crack at it myself since I have done a little plushie here and there-they didn't turn out too horrible XD.

Yeah, you'd have to practice with action lines and the body drawn in a running movement. I tried looking up pictures like from Calvin and Hobbes strips, the ones of either his mom or dad chasing him. Those always look so funny and would fit with 'undead' Basil chasing after Olivia! :laughing:

Yeah, I usually have to use some kind of reference. Hmm, Calvin and Hobbes...that could work. I'll have to try it, either that or I'll make Basil fly after her XD. Oh, I also have to finish my Zombie Basil which also has him freaking Olivia out again XD! It amuses me so to have him freak her out.

Yeah, I like that he seems to be in the air while running. So I'm going to make the attempt at having Olivia run from Vampire Basil XD.
