"The Rescuers" is a pint-sized adventure of the Rescue Aid Society. Miss Bianca and the janitor Bernard travel to the bayou to rescue a small girl who has been kidnapped by Madame Medusa. Madame Medusa is using the girl (Penny) to help her retrieve the pirate treasure, the Devil’s Eye. The film is a sharp change from the more comedic films of the 60’s/70’s, as it was a darker dramatic film with some comedic elements. Kidnapping an orphan, forced labor, possible drowning, etc. Very dark.

The film is cute. Neither an animation spectacular or nor epic story. It feels very episodic to me, like a TV episode. I’m partial to music in films and this film only had a few atmospheric songs. My favorite part is the voice cast. I think Eva Gabor and Bob Newhart were wonderful choices. They made the mice very warm and personable characters, which was imperative since the story was told from the mice’s point of view.

The film was a financial success, so much so it actually received a sequel. For this bento I tried to capture the original Miss Bianca. I’m partial to the sequel version from an animation perspective because her features are more defined and her eyes more expressive.

I had read somewhere that originally the story team wanted to use Cruella De Vil in the film, which I can see. Madame Medusa could be Cruella’s cousin, for sure.

You may get asked this a lot, so please excuse my ignorance - but how do you go about constructing character expressions and body language and such? Thanks!

makanidotdot answered:

Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:

1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.

First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose. Β 

So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose. Β I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.

Β Scribble it down

start to put on features

fix stuff

image

put on more stuff

image

fix stuff again

image

erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring

Whole head is a gesture!image

2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first. Β You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.

So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.Β

That’s the simplest explanation I got. Β Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being β€œon model” last!
