#AtoZChallenge, 2017, Disney

A is for… ???

Welcome to my first post of the 2017 A – Z April Challenge… How is everyone feeling? Excited… Me too!! So, what is A for…. ???

I stated that I was going to draw a “Disney Sidekick” or supporting Disney Character for each of the letters for April. A question though hung over me, how was I going to present these drawings. As I was looking through a few of my boxes I stumbled across some blank ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards) I had forgotten about. Β If you are unaware of ATC’s they are basically a piece of rectangular card the size of a baseball card roughly 6cm by 8cm.

My stash of ATC’s

A is for…. ABU

How can anyone not love the little furry lovable rogue, who happens to be Aladdin’s best friend.

Abu 1
Just to prove I am drawing them.Β 

Abu first featured in the 1992 animated Disney movie Aladdin. Abu is Aladdin’s pet monkey, as well as being his partner in crime and of course best friend.

Abu 2
Finished Pencil drawing.Β 

Abu happens to be attracted to anything shiny. This of course can land him in all kinds of trouble including getting himself and Aladdin stuck in the Cave of Wonders.

Abu at times can appear a little selfish and is jealous of anyone who takes Aladdin’s attention away from him. However, Abu does have a kind heart when it matters and eventually does the right thing.

The finished picture

I hope you like my picture of ABU… see you on Monday for the letter B…

Happy A – Z April Challenge…

  1. You’re very talented! I love his expression hehe! πŸ˜€ The sidekicks never seem to get showcased in art enough, so I’ll definitely come back to see who else you draw this month.

    I’m taking part in the A-Z challenge for the first time this year. πŸ™‚ I’m a writer, stepping outside my comfort zone and delving into crime writing. My theme is: Secret Diary Of A Serial Killer. http://nataliewestgate.com/2017/04/anna-secret-diary-of-a-serial-killer

  2. wish I can see a larger image cause it looks pretty small on my screen, as far as I can see, it looks pretty good though I cannot really remember the movie enough to compare.

    have a lovely day.
