While watching Pinocchio a few days ago I was suddenly struck by motivation (!!!) to draw something.

So I drew my own versions of the characters Pinocchio, Honest John and Gideon. The style is heavily influenced by the Disney movie, but I burrowed some ideas from the original book and other adaptations. The picture depicts when John gives Pinocchio a ticket (an ace of spades) to pleasure island, like in the movie.

Drawn on paper, edited and colored in Photoshop. The colors are bullshitty, but that's because I *tried* to use as few colors as possible. (NEVER DO THAT AGAIN)


characters (c) the author of the original book

(why do I have to write so much ._.)

I'm actually working on a fairy tale that involves a cat and fox being con artists. So with your permission, do you think you could let me create a design similar to what you have made?

Did you know the cat was female in the original story?

Always want to see someone tackle what they would look like by the end of the original story where they end up eventually the way they tried to act in front of Pinocchio at the beginning.  A sad fate indeed but I guess they deserved it.

excuse me, but with your permission, I'm making my own comic of pinocchio for a high school project, is it alright if I use this design?

It's okay if you make something similar, but I wouldn't like you to copy the design completely.

I like your take on the characters (and honestly, I think the colors are fine).

Awesome work!

Aaahh, brings back good childhood memories. Gotta see Pinocchio again some time soon. :)

Don't worry. The colours aren't bullshitty at all. In fact, I'd prefer this over a more colourful version.

Yeah, I felt really nostalgic while watching the movie, even though Pinocchio wasn't one of my favorite disney movies. Dunno why, I guess I just found it a bit too freaky in some parts.

Thanks! :hug:
