Honestly, is it even possible not to end up with a kind of a crush on Basil? I can't help it, brilliant and smug men just kind of get me that way :P Dawson is a must-love too though, always.

That is so true; delusional, egocentric and fairly clever seems to be a thing women fancy... or at least we do, as far as I'm concerned.
I seriously have a hard time choosing between these two, as they're both amazingly adorable characters.

Just look at that swag... Who knew two late 19th century-early 20th century mice could shake off so much saw?

They've got so much swagger-juice dripping from them, they'll eventually create a swagger-flood :trollface:

Basil's smug grin can only mean he's on to something, and Dawson's lifted eyebrow means he's curious to know! :D Zooming in, I noticed you made his eyes blue. Interesting! The characters are both drawn beautifully and the colors nice and rich. Lovely job all around! :thumbsup:

TopHatTurtle Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2013
Yeah, I don't know, I never seem to be able to give characters just black eyes, unless there's a specific reason.
I honestly think I'd give Basil ice-blue eyes too, so I probably should have gone with brown for Dawson and I might do that in the future. I, as a default-mode, just tend to match blond hair and blue eyes ;P

Brinatello Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2013
I usually give them black if I'm going by Disney's standard toon style. But technically Basil's eyes are green. Well, they turned green when he's got that psycho look while saying they should set the trap off NOW!

TopHatTurtle Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013
Actually, I find that green is the default-colour Disney uses for their black-eyed characters, whenever they get an epiphany or gets a bit insane; Or at least that's what I've gathered from the few examples I've stumbled upon.

:iconbrinatello:
Brinatello Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013
And then their eyes turn red when they get angry, just like Dawson did at Basil.

:icondrdawsonrageplz::iconsaysplz:THAT'S ENOUGH!

I'm curious, what were some other examples you stumbled upon? I'm too tired to look them up at the moment. ;p
Reply
:icontophatturtle:
TopHatTurtle Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2013
Exactly; Well, the best example I have os far are from the new Darkwing duck series, where the main-characters eyes are green whenever the eyes have a specific colour; there are other examples, but i don't remember. I'll keep an eye out.

Brinatello Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2013
Ohhh! I can recall that with DD! Blue, I think there was another color, too, like a light blue. You'll keep an eye out? Okay, I'll excuse that pun too! :XD: I'll see what you come up with later! :rofl:

This is so cute! It's kind of rare to see just the two of them together (could be just me :XD:) and I love their poses. I also love the uniqueness of your style: it's Disney, but with your own style. Keep up the good work!

Thanks a lot - no, you might be right, that we rarely just have the two of them together, solo.

This is one of the best artworks I've seen of these two!
I really love the flow in their poses, how you manage to make their personality visible through their actions!
Also, the expressions are very stunningly done :heart:

TopHatTurtle Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2013
Wow, thank you so much. I have to admit, I'm still not entirely pleased about Basils face, not because he doesn't look like the original toon 100%, but because he's lacking some... sleuth-vibes, of the like. Either way, I am proud of this piece and I am happy that people like it too :)

Aww, they look great! I love how you draw the GMD characters; it's like the Disney style, but with your own unique style mixed in :D

FFFFF, how do you do it?? They look fantastic! ^^ I especially love Basil's expression. It's very....well, Basil for lack of a better term. And Dawson looks adorable.

TopHatTurtle Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2013
Actually, in the beginning I tried SO hard to copy the exact style of the movie, but once I let go and tried to push them into my style, rather than the other way around, I found that I could catch their 'essence' much easier, if that makes any sense.
Anyhoo, thanks so much.

TopHatTurtle Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013
Hopefully yeah; My focus mainly have been Dawson and Basil, as I want to work more on them involved with my own OC, and Ratigan not so much (unless I accept the cartoons, in which he survives). But I definitely want to do some Ratigan-related stuff, because the man is brilliant.

But no promises.
