Another Pixar kiddie! Heheh, my favorite part of A Bug's Life
is the repartee between Flick and Dot. It's just too much fun!
I've always found it interesting how animators and cartoonists anthropomorphize bugs and such. Like Jiminy Cricket, he doesn't really look like a cricket, and yet he also does.
Same thing with the ants in A Bug's Life
. The only thing that bothers me about the ants in the movie, is that they don't have six limbs. I don't understand why they were simplified like that. I get why Kri-Kee from Mulan might've been--pencil mileage would be my guess, and also all the figures were pretty simplistic so it also may have been a style thing.
But CG seems to be about hyper-realism so... I just don't get it. Maybe it was to differntiate them from the grasshoppers? XD Blahblahblah, I'm probably thinking about it too much.
At any rate, it was fun to draw Dot! Cute little freckles.The kiddie folder: [link]
