I'm actually shitting myself right now. I just want tomorrow to be over and done with. It's been ages since I actually finished my GCSEs and I'm really not looking forward to seeing what happens tomorrow. It's not just the results I'm scared of, either. :(

Anyway, it'll probably turn out fine and all, but that doesn't mean I'm looking forward to it any more. 

And also, sorry about the delay with the pen-pal thing. I'll start writing letters next week now that I've got sufficient stationary, but I'm away on an adventure trip over the weekend and straight after that I'm going to my grandparents' house again. So... yeah. I'm as unreliable as ever. :XD:

LBT: Remembering by somerandomfangirl
LBT: Remembering
Yes, I want to rip your heart out. =P This was my entry for a contest over on the Gang of Five forum. 

The idea behind this is something I believe quite a lot of LBT fans would want to see: more references to Littlefoot's mother. I always find it odd that in the sequels (especially the earlier ones), Littlefoot is the happiest little kid around and shows absolutely no signs of loss, at least as far as the audience could see. There were a few references in some of the sequels, but we don't really see Littlefoot get upset about what happened outside of the first film, which I find a little bit odd considering that seeing a sharptooth fighting and injuring his mother, immediately followed by the earthshake and her untimely death is an experience that I think would be very traumatic for him. She was the only parent he had at the time, he was always by her side because he had no friends, she was very kind and loving to him, and then he watched her die before his very eyes. :cries:


Therefore, what stood out for me in the sequels was 'Always There' in LBT 5. It was probably the only time we see Littlefoot genuinely look upset because he misses his mother. I thought it was pretty special when he was singing about her, and it made me tear up a little. It just goes to show that the sequels can have emotional scenes, and they can show that Littlefoot hasn't completely gotten over what happened. Of course in the later sequels things got a bit more fun and goofy - which is by no means a bad thing - but it is nice to take a moment to see a different side to some of the characters. What I'd like to see in the future is more scenes like that, and from what I've heard about LBT 14, that film would be the perfect opportunity to have such a scene. :nod:

We don't exactly know the gap between the first Land Before Time film and the second, but I don't think it was long enough for Littlefoot to get over it. What I always imagined was that Littlefoot pushed any thoughts of what had happened to the back of his mind during the day and kept any bad feelings to himself. However, sometimes he was still haunted by nightmares disturbing is sleep, and so he would seek comfort and get upset about it in front of those who would truly understand; his remaining family. Of course, since his grandparents were the only other ones in the Great Valley who actually knew his mother, he could talk to them about her and they would mourn their loss together. So... that's how this came about. I really am hoping that there is some reference to Littlefoot's mother in LBT 14, especially since it's about Littlefoot's last living parent going missing. The largest star in the sky is a reference to the one seen in LBT 5, watching over Littlefoot. Other than that, it looks a bit gloomy.  

Long story short, all I'm saying is that what I would like to see in future LBT movies is whether Littlefoot still misses his mother. As Rooter put it, he'll always miss her. ;)

Overall, the sketch took about two hours to make and clean up. Inking and colouring digitally took about five hours. I'm not too happy with Littlefoot's underbelly colour, but this is the first time I've tried to do the actual night-time colours from the films. I've always wondered why Grandma is such a lighter colour than Grandpa at night, considering that they look the same colour during the day... eh, whatever.

Enjoy!

LBT - Camellia by somerandomfangirl
LBT - Camellia
...It's been like, two years since I've drawn this kind of stuff. Wow. And looking back at my old work and especially the old bio of this character... *cringes* 

Seriously, though, she was gonna die at a young age to make more room for Taro to take the spotlight. Taro was my little baby and then I was a bitch to my other characters. :lol: Of course, that is no longer the case. 

Anyway, for those who don't know me so well, this is Camellia (now spelled with 2 l's because I've already made so many changes to her so why not), one of now four children I gave to Grandma and Grandpa Longneck in addition to Littlefoot's mother. I haven't changed the names of any of the others, but I've added 2 boys. And before anyone calls me out for bad maths skills, I am aware that adding two boys makes six. One of them is not the offspring of Grandma and Grandpa (or Tosa and Thunderfoot as I like to call them). I'll explain who he is when I draw him... he is the OC I want to draw next, although I'm not sure when that'll be. 

So now there's Linnaea, Camellia, April, Taro, Ren and Alistair. :nod:

So... as you have probably guessed, Camellia has had a lot of changes done to her, although not so much when it comes to her looks. Well, she has the same markings on her skin as she did before, but I just realised that I have made her lighter and more of a bluish-grey. She is no longer ill, weak and shy... In her childhood now, she was really sarcastic, and liked to embarrass her parents whenever they had a tender moment. As Taro's twin sister, she's very close to her brother and the two tend to wander of and cause trouble together, although she is a little bit less reckless than he is. Here she has grown up, although she is no longer with her family for reasons I might explain another day. As an adult, she is still quite hard-faced to some, but she has grown more compassionate and is happy to offer help and protection to any smaller and weaker dinosaurs - including sharpteeth, as long as they promise not to eat her or harm another leaf-eater in front of her. 

Anyway, enough about Camellia, let's talk about the drawing!

This was sketched at some point last week, but I had to fix quite a few errors such as on the tail and the eyes and then I wanted to write so I left it for about five days and then carried on with it last night and today. All in all, I'd say I wasted about 12 hours doing this... although most of it was experimenting with doing eyes that are now too small to see if I've done anything different, and multiple brushes that I downloaded for Photoshop (no credit for those goes to me, of course). The background was pure experimentation with the brushes, as my BG's usually are. 

I've been wanting to draw something LBT related since I found out about LBT 14, but with exam stress and then being too busy in the summer holidays I just couldn't find both time and motivation at the same time. Well, eventually I did, and then I drew something that wasn't even canon. :rofl: Next LBT related thing I'm going to draw will be for a contest over on The Gang of Five forum so I'm sticking to purely canon characters for that. Then hopefully I'm going to draw that new OC of mine... 

Well, now that that huge block of text is out of the way, I hope you're all doing well, and I'll see you guys next time!

Well, I've been down to Devon lately and decided to go out and get some photos! This was taken at Baggy Point a few weeks ago. I've got Photoshop now so I'm just playing about with it. :P I might upload another. :P
