Look At The Stars by CoffeeVulture Look At The Stars by CoffeeVulture
"The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars.
So whenever you feel alone,
just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you.
And so will I"

So :icondisney-club: is hosting a coloring book contest in which they asked people to choose a blank disney coloring page and color it in. As an added bonus they asked us to color it in the style of a famous painter if we wished to get more points.

So my coloring page was ---->  www.coloringtone.com/wp-conten…
And my painter was Van Gogh  -----> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Star…

I didn't realize how hard it was going to be to take myself out of my coloring comfort zone and use this style.
This took some serious patience for me XD

I like how you painted it so that it looks digital but has a texture that gives it a traditional canvas look. The Van Gogh reference is recognizable and wonderful on this too :heart:
Good luck on the contest!

Thank you! I kinda just lucked out that mufasa and simba are yellowish so they matched the color scheme XD
I have to say this was probably the most difficult piece of art I've ever done digitally.

This is so precious, I love it!  Did you do this in a digital program?  Because it looks just like it was done with paint on a canvas. :)

CoffeeVulture Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep! It's done completely in photoshop. All digital and let me tell you it WAS NOT easy lol.
The canvas texture happened to be a setting in my program, I figured it was perfect to make it look more realistic :D
Thank you so much!

You really incorporated Van Gogh's style really well.  I can really tell that you put effort into this.  I like that Simba and Mufasa still contrasts with the background despite the scene all being the same bright colors. :)

Lovely representation of Mufasa and Simba in Van Gogh art style, he loved yellow,green and blues so much which was perfect for this scene also.
Sun is the star of Leo(Lion),means warmth, the morning/evening sun.
Well done.

Indeed its all digital :D The texture was an afterthought in photoshop. I figured since it was supposed to look like a painting why not make it look like it was done on canvas. :) Thanks! I'm glad you like it!

Huh, I wouldn't have thought of using Starry Night for that scene in the movie, but that's a clever idea! It adds to the magic and mystery of that scene, if you will, as Mufasa shows Simba the stars and what those stars are made of. The stars are more than just stars; they are the ancestors before us who literally watch over us up there in the dark canvas. Using one of Van Gogh's signature pieces as the night sky is a clever move and it helps make that particular scene more meaningful and memorable, especially since it'll foreshadow what's to come for Mufasa and Simba later in the movie. I also like how you muted the earth and illustrated Mufasa and Simba's colors; they help make the sky stand out further as well as put some emphasis on the moment between father and son. I feel this is a fine piece and a wonderful example of transcending the scene into something new yet familiar at the same time. Well done!

Thanks so much for all your kind words :D The thought of using Starry Night kinda just came to me as I looked at the coloring page and pondered an artist to use as inspiration. And as you said, as the thought arose, I just found it to be way too fitting to not give it a shot.
