Despite how long I have delayed on finishing this piece, it still comes out as half-assed work, but at the same time pretty rewarding and satisfactory. I like how I've been able to improve on utilizing Paint Tool Sai's functions better, though my coloring could use some more touching up (and less lazying about!) I hope y'all enjoy it
I absolutely fell for this film when I watched it. I mean, I was already anticipating it like crazy (come on, we all know how we felt and what we thought when we saw this beautiful creature crawl out of Santa's bag (( oh but I'd like him to be in my bag, a wink-a-dink)). However, Rise of the Guardians met and maybe even exceeded my expectations, though I did find the ending line to be somewhat cheesy and some parts of the plot could be better clarified. I promise that you will fall for the characters, even though they might not have grabbed your attention in the other trailers or promotions. Isla Fisher is absolutely LOVELY as Tooth, her energetic attitude and sweet voice will be one of the brightest and most enjoyed parts of the film. Bunnymund is a badass (he IS voiced by Hugh Jackman AKA Wolverine AKA Logan), he's also a pretty charming fella with that accent and all. Sandman really feels like a protective entity. He speaks a lot even though he's basically mute, and the choreography that they got for this guy was just PERFECT. North is one of those lovable grandpa figures that everyone remembers from their childhood, but with swords. Alex Baldwin does a fabulous job with giving him his Russian accent and charisma. Oh, and don't get me started on Jack Frost. Though I didn't find his back story to be all that tragic (some people said he got killed by wolves?....... Don't worry, they're just rumors), but he has an attractive personality. He's that one rebel that turns out to be very caring and vulnerable, questioning who he is and why he is what he is. He becomes stronger and learns more about himself, making him an incredibly helpful Guardian. All in all, in regards to animated features, I honestly give this film a 10/10. PLEASE, do yourself a favor and WATCH this masterpiece!
