The Secret of NIMH by GENZOMAN The Secret of NIMH by GENZOMAN
Some night ago I was working with the TV on the background. I catch this film on Netflix, The Secret of NIMH. It was one of my favorite movies when i was a kid. I remember the awesome animation, the fantastic work in backgrounds and the nice characters, Don Bluth is a genius and one of my heroes. I remember to spent a lot of time as a kid with the VHS watching this movies and drawing. I love the dark tone of 80´s films for kids.

Oh, well, I cant avoid do a quick 5 minutes sketch of the lovely Mrs Brisby. I hope to do a full color image of this sometime :)

Oh! you never watched this film? I recommend it to you :)

A very rough 5 minute sketch, but there's enough clarity and quality here I can't criticise how gorgeous this piece is. Good choice of posture.

I am a HUGE fan of this movie. It's my favorite non-Disney animated film.
Mrs. Brisby is a true heroine. In the end, she was just a determined mother protecting her kids.

Cool! Mrs. Brisby is a best animated mom ever. She was ready to die for her son. True courage.  Loved and remembered.

That movie has been bouncing around I my head for past week, so last night I finally rewatched it for the first time since I was a kid. Such a great movie!! I never forgot the beautiful animation; the character Mrs. Brisby was a pure work of art. Awesome drawing of her! Glad to have found it.

Lovely sketch. I loved the film too. So beautiful, but I don't know why. The characters and story are just so moving.

You could try a Robin Hood (Disney) Sketch. Judging by this one, it would be pretty good

Oh, and i loved the pink tone on her cheek. SO CUTE!   >.<

Great character from a great story. <3
Maehedrose Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2013
The movie was beautiful ... and had so little to do with the book.  They were both pieces of art, well worth experiencing, I encourage you and anyone else who has not had the pleasure to read the book.

Nice Job!omfg  I was no kid when the movie came out, but I loved it and its animation. Yes, Don Bluth did do a fantastic job. I have the book as well as the movie, and both are worth another look, anytime.

Amazing! I love this picture so much! The Secret of NIMH is such an amazing movie and I would really like the tone how animation had back then.
gladlad Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013
Whoa. I really loved that you have left it unfinished so far; I think it really captures the warm, organic sketchiness of Bluth's animation. His stint with Disney was amazing, too. This was one of the movies that really blew open my imagination as a kid, along with Labyrinth, the Dark Crystal, and Willow... etc.
Thanks for sharing!
