Here is a Valentine's Day pic with Basil and that lady mouse in the end of the movie (Nanette, we call her)!! ^_^ Soooo happy to do it!!( Finally! Coloured PiccyCollapse )
Hey, all! :D Man, I drew pics but none are complete. I'm working my way there, hee hee! Here are some different ones...a LOT, in fact! Thus...under the cuts.( More posing picsCollapse )( Group shots!Collapse )These ones are relatively tame, actually, but I guess PG for one or two.( Hot stuff...well I think it isCollapse )Hopefully I can finish some of these!! I have others, but I'm putting some on Tumblr: http://funjunket.tumblr.com/ If anyone is on there, let me know and I'll add you there as well! I'll put up some other GMD-related pics there, because I'll feel like putting up even the crappiest looking things.
I've been practicing drawing some GMD characters! Yaaaay! But they're sketches...and I mean LOOSE sketches! XD Still, getting better so at some point I shall complete one pic, then more and more!( Practice Piccies!!Collapse )I'll show more soon!
Just popping in to say hello!! So, I bought Great Mouse Detective for my best buddy for Christmas and we watched together.Instant. Love.I'm sure I've seen it or some of it before, but it was yeeeeeears before! XD Anyway, we'd watched Tangled before we watched GMD. What a diff. Hands down, GMD is SOOO underrated, wonderfully done. LOVE THE CHARACTERS!!!So, my friend and I have been crazily writing stories and thinking up ideas for...more stories. I'm scared to, but I shall eventually do some art to do GMD justice.I'm happy to pass along some of the stuff I create! I read that sometimes things are slow around here, but I hope people are still kickin', cuz I just started!! XDYou don't want to know how crazy GMD's made us, though. That's NEVER happened with a movie. Ha ha!
I'm not sure if anyone visits this comm or not anymore, but I want to say hi anyway! So hello! *waves* I'm Sarah, or Sal as my chums call me. & I'm from Lancashire in England, UK. I've been a lifelong fan of the GMD. I got the VHS for Christmas 1992 when I was just 5 years old & I instantly adored it. I had LOADS of Disney videos but I always had GMD on constantly...I remember my Mum saying: 'All the Disney videos you've got & you keep watching this one!' haha! But I did, I wore it out & even then, I had a 'voice/cartoon crush' on Basil <3 The video finally died on me years later around 1998 & I didn't end up getting it on DVD until 2004, but when I did, it started the obsession off with it all over again. At the time I was working at the Cat's Protection Shelter where I started to look after a beautiful black & white kitten, who I ended up bringing home with me & named him, wait for it... 'Basil' <3 He's 6 years old now, he's my baby & I see it as the ultimate tribute to my child-hood hero.
So the film has been a constant through my life & it always comes out during the 'rough' time of my life & as I got older, I managed to find out more about Barrie Ingham & I totally fell for him in everyway. He's a fantastic actor & was/is an extremely attractive man. I go weak at the knees' everytime I think about him...haha! I've done my best to see as much as I can of what he's appeared in over the years, I've seen quite alot but there's still some stuff I need to see. There needs to be more love around for him, he's amazing! I see a few people on here who have met him & I'm extremely jealous! It'd make my life to even say 'hello' to him! Although I'm not sure if he even lives in the UK anymore, so wouldn't even know where to write to for an autograph! So if anyone has any advice on that, I'd be very grateful, even though it might take me awhile to pluck up the courage to even send a letter off. haha! So yeah, I guess that's my 'GMD story' - the film has always been very special to me & always will be, as I'm sure it will be to many people. I know they say all Disney stuff is magical, but this film really was...So thanks very much for listening to my story lovlies & I'm always eager to meet new GMD/Barrie Ingham fans. So feel free to add me! I'm friendly, don't eat much, housebroken & am told I'm quite funny ;)Over at my Journal: 87sal87 FacebookTwitterTumblr
Song: Somebody's Watching Me by Mysto & PizziWarnings: Cracky as anything. Also *spoilers* for The Great Game, so if you haven't seen the Sherlock finale, watch out.Plot: Basil is a mouse who lives under 221B and partakes in adventures that bear an eerie resemblance to those of Sherlock. It's pretty much the result of this thread at sherlockbbc_fic. Cross posted at sherlockbbc . Apologies for the spammage of anyone's f-list :)( Embedded vid behind the cutCollapse )
It's the film's 24th anniversary of its US release date on July 2nd, 1986. In honor of this date, I made a drawing of Basil looking like his voice actor, Barrie Ingham. Couldn't resist! XDBasil as BarrieBy the way, is anyone still alive out there?!
Hey, Facebook users, who here 'Likes' Barrie Ingham? A page was created for him just to hit 'Like' and that's plain and simple. Only a few are there at the moment, but I hope more will 'Like' him.
