Nani: Did you catch fire again?
David: No just the stage.


I adore Lilo and Stitch. I love pretty much everything about this little movie. It was so different, funny, sweet, and heartwarming. :heart:
And Chris Sander's style? Woo, I was kinda sad that I was taking these characters and putting them into my 'blah' style. X3

You know, even when I was little (during my age of, 'I hate everything!!') I found David attractive. Besides the fact that he's just as sweet as can be, I think it's his man necklace. X3
And Nani?Taking care of her little sister, shouldering all that responsibility thrown at her, dealing with an alien... She's pretty awesome. :nod:

When I read that Lilo and Stitch was the first Disney movie since Dumbo to have watercolor backgrounds, I knew that I wanted to whip out my watercolors and pay homage to that. <:^)
I've... never really been very good with watercolors. So, when I got to this point (to the point where I'm happy with it), I told myself to stop, while I still could. with traditional media... I have the very bad habit of overworking my drawings. I don't know what it is, but that's what happens! <:^0

So, given the fact that I've never been good with my watercolors (maybe I should read some tutorials), and also given that I haven't worked with them in... oh, five years or so, I think that this came out alright. I like it, anyway. ^__^

Oh, and this served as a good means as to winding down after a frustrating day of graphing sinx and cosx. >:^P

I think I have commented on this piece before and if so or if not, whatever, I am commenting on it yet again ebcause I adore it so much! I adore both your image and this couple-one of my top favs, hardly behind Anya and Dimitri, which is saying alot. Honestly, it's because of all the reasons you mentioned: how sweet, good-intentioned and attractive David is and how Nani shoulders all responsibility and tries her best, is spunky and knows what she wants out of life but tries to help make others happy more than herself. Lovely work, the watercolors are so soft, gentle and beautiful. I am so thankful that you created a fanart for them and I would love to ask you to paint a family portrait of Nani, David, Lilo and Stitch together and yet I've already asked you to draw too many pictures as it is hahah. Please consider it because the couples I've suggested for you to draw recieve hardly any love or recognition at all and yet I think that these characters as well as the movies they are from are some of the best animated films and movies in general with wonderful and unique characters and plots. Thanks so much, I love this piece so much!

Hahah, well, I may draw them a family portrait--who knows! I'm not one to close a door on a subject. ;)
And thank you! I'm glad ya like this one. I worked very hard on the watercolors. :nod:

I can tell you worked very hard, all the time and dedication is very evident!

Aww I hope you would at least consider it, it would be wonderful if you did! But I completely understand why not as well of course :) Thanks so much for these beautiful portraits and I hope you'll continue!

Great job.

There doesn't seem to be a lot of Nani/David pieces on here.
MistyTang Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2010
Yeah, both David and Nani need more art. :)
