  • - Today we're gonna be drawing

  • Disney characters from memory.

  • - From my brain.

  • - I hope I do okay.

  • - It depends which movies they are.

  • 'Cause some of them, I don't know.

  • - [Producer] Jimmy Cricket.

  • - Oh boy.

  • - [Producer] Maleficent.

  • - Ooh. - I don't (sighs).

  • - [Producer] From Sleeping Beauty.

  • - Are you serious right now?

  • - [Producer] Moana's Maui character.

  • - I know that guy.

  • - I haven't seen Moana.

  • - [Producer] Ooh!

  • - Just draw Dwayne The Rock Johnson.

  • - I mean, I know kind of what this character looks like.

  • He's like big and portly, anyway.

  • - Again, just draw Dwayne The Rock Johnson shirtless,

  • and you're there.

  • - So I think he's got like an oval face.

  • - Yeah. - Right?

  • - I think he's like--

  • - Now, does he have a nose?

  • I think he has a big nose.

  • - I remember she has these really distinct horns.

  • - I know she has a very narrow face.

  • - Lovely triangle face.

  • - Yes, a very angular,

  • this is bad.

  • I know she's green, and she looks like Angelina Jolie.

  • - Oh God, this doesn't look like him at all.

  • Okay, so I think.

  • - He's got a top hat, right?

  • - Yeah, he's got, he's definitely got a top hat.

  • Okay, but it's a small top hat.

  • And then I think his body, he's got a little bean body

  • and a vest, I think, and probably a bow tie.

  • He's a little dapper dude.

  • - But he's wider, right?

  • Is he a square?

  • - He's kind of a square, yeah.

  • - 'Cause I'm doin' him as a series of spheres.

  • - Uh-oh.

  • - His head's gotta be huge.

  • Disney cartoons have those big ol' heads.

  • I think he's got a, doesn't he have a nose?

  • I feel like he has a nose, like a big nose.

  • - I feel like, in my mind, he's looking like Joe Camel.

  • He's got Joe Camel's camel nose, kind of?

  • - I love Maleficent because her whole reason for being evil

  • is that she didn't get invited to a birthday party.

  • - (gasps) I remember this now.

  • - I love her.

  • - [Jackie] He has very beautiful hair.

  • - Right, it's long and--

  • - It's long and flowing.

  • Just like Dwayne The Rock Johnson's hair.

  • - Right.

  • He has lots of cool tattoos with his life on them,

  • or something, like every time he did something cool.

  • - Do the tattoos move?

  • - Yes, they do, they do! - They do?

  • See, I do know that.

  • Wait, what props does he have?

  • - He has a hook, right?

  • - She has a staff!

  • - Oh, yeah!

  • - I'm like, Oh, I don't know her.

  • Actually I do.

  • - I'm drawing him and he's not looking

  • like what's in my head.

  • - I think he's got a little vest, right?

  • - Like a 1920s suit?

  • - Okay, and he's got gloves.

  • So they gave him gloves because

  • Felix the cat had black hands,

  • and whenever his hand went over his body it would disappear.

  • So they started giving cartoon characters white gloves.

  • - Does he have a cane?

  • - I don't think so.

  • - Oh, I'm gonna draw him a cane,

  • 'cause it just looks right for me.

  • - He's built, right?

  • - Yeah, he's built. - But he's not Rock built.

  • - No, I think he's even builter than Rock,

  • but I don't think that's The Rock's fault.

  • The Rock isn't animated!

  • - Listen, it's never The Rock's fault.

  • - I'm gonna give him antenna.

  • I know he didn't have 'em,

  • but it's just gonna make my picture look more

  • like I want it to look.

  • - Okay.

  • - I think I just drew an alien.

  • - Oh no, he's gotta wear pants, right?

  • He's gotta wear pants.

  • I'm feeling good about this.

  • - I'm not feelin' good about this.

  • - (gasps) Green and purple.

  • She's like the queen of those colors.

  • - She's a green woman.

  • God, I'm having a hard time, okay.

  • - Oh, she's a nice--

  • - [Producer] Five minutes.

  • - No!

  • - He has a necklace that he stole that I don't--

  • - Oh, that's right!

  • He's got like a puka shell necklace, right?

  • - Yeah, but he stole it from Moana.

  • - Okay, I don't care where it got it,

  • I just gotta put it in my drawing.

  • - He just gotta, I'm gonna make him shy.

  • I'm gonna make him blush.

  • - [Kevin] I still gotta color.

  • - I'm done.

  • - Well, great Jackie.

  • Gimme a second.

  • See,his is what happens when a cartoonist

  • goes up against an animator.

  • (chuckling)

  • You animators are so fast.

  • - So I remember her being incredibly triangular.

  • The most defining feature of her in her silhouette

  • is the horns, which I hope I got right.

  • If I didn't, I will be very bad character designer.

  • - Her body is the thing that I just don't remember the most.

  • I think it's just like a cloak?

  • - I think she is just cloak.

  • - Yeah.

  • Like she's mostly cloak.

  • - I don't remember seeing her legs.

  • - Okay, he looks like the Planter's Peanut Guy or whatever.

  • - Yeah, I think that's a pretty accurate description of him.

  • - I think I'm just drawing that person.

  • I don't know if this is what Jimmy Cricket looks like.

  • Oh, that doesn't look great.

  • You know what, I'm just gonna draw

  • my own original character.

  • My own Brent Sievers original Jiminy Cricket.

  • - I'm already there.

  • I've been drawing an original alien cricket for a while now.

  • - See, you've got the right idea, man.

  • I don't know what I've been doin'.

  • - I would say that a cartoonist

  • usually works in static images,

  • whereas an animator would work in moving images.

  • Do you think that's appropriate to say?

  • - Yeah, sure.

  • - Are you just humoring me?

  • - A little bit. - Okay.

  • - You know what, this looks like Jiminy Cricket.

  • I'm gonna go the extra mile

  • and start giving him some shading.

  • - (beep) this lady, she sucks.

  • I hate her. - [Kyra] (laughs) I know.

  • - She's a bad lady and she's hard to draw.

  • - She is incredibly hard to draw.

  • - The one thing I remember is she has these green things.

  • These weird rings on her horns.

  • - I think I drew,

  • what's the name of the alien from the Flintstones?

  • Kazoo?

  • - Isn't it so weird how you can have

  • such a vivid idea of what a character

  • looks like in your head.

  • - And then you've got to draw him.

  • - But then once it's actually, push comes to shove,

  • to recreate it, it's like you just can't?

  • - Yeah, that's kind of what's goin' on right now.

  • I think this is as good as it's gonna get.

  • Unless I get another hour!

  • (laughing)

  • - [Producer] Are you sure you're not missing anything?

  • - I'm missing plenty.

  • I'm missing so much

  • in this drawing - Actually, my drawing

  • looks exactly like the movie.

  • - Does it?

  • - Yeah, I think it's perfect,

  • and if anyone has critiques for me, don't tell me them.

  • - All right, I'm done.

  • - Okay.

  • - [Producer] And, time. - All right.

  • - I wanna be confident.

  • I think I got the feel of her down,

  • but I am not sure about that staff.

  • - I think that I have drawn Queen Amidala from Star Wars,

  • but just green, like she's real sick.

  • (upbeat rock music)

  • - Oh, wow. - Yeah.

  • His hook is a lot bigger than I thought it would be.

  • - That's his hook? - Yeah.

  • - He's got a lotta tattoos.

  • - Yeah, that's why I didn't really--

  • - Like a lot of tattoos.

  • - I knew that, and I just didn't wanna do it.

  • - Yeah.

  • - That's my excuse.

  • - Also, I drew him with a bald spot.

  • - Why?

  • - And he's got a full head of hair.

  • - No! - Thank you.

  • - (gasps) I forgot her collar.

  • - This is not this thing that I have done at all.

  • - Oh my God, okay.

  • - I think that I was really thinking

  • about the queen from Snow White.

  • - Mine looks like a Party City Halloween store costume.

  • - Okay, yeah, that's ah.

  • - Yeah?

  • - You know what, sort of, yeah,

  • I got the color kinda good.

  • Oh, he's got an umbrella!

  • - It's an umbrella, not a cane.

  • - He's got a little spats on.

  • - He does look like Joe Camel a little bit though.

  • - The top hat's bigger.

  • It's more of a mad hatter top hat.

  • - It is.

  • - Also he's wearing a little blazer.

  • You know what, I'm not ashamed, though.

  • I got the nose, I think the eye shape was kinda good.

  • - Yeah.

  • - I think I did all right.

  • - I don't think I did all right,

  • but I think I did as best as I could (laughs)

  • without watching this movie in 20 years.

  • (whistle blows)

  • - Whoa, yours is great! - Oh my god.

  • - We both thought that her horns were sort of stripey.

  • - Which they are.

  • - Yeah, they are a little bit stripey.

  • - They are stripey.

  • - Yours looks a lot like a villain

  • from the Powerpuff Girls, or something.

  • You've got a very--

  • - I love the Powerpuff Girls, so thank you.

  • - Oh, you did great.

  • - Why does he have a bald spot?

  • - I told you I gave him a bald spot

  • because I thought for some reason he had a bald spot.

  • - It looks like Danny DeVito.

  • (laughing)

  • - Listen, if I were casting it,

  • I would have Danny DeVito play--

  • - [Jackie] Yeah, everything, right?

  • - Yeah.

  • (laughing)

  • - Is the laughter at my talent or at the picture?

  • This is a pretty good picture.

  • - Oh my God!

  • Here's the thing.

  • Okay, so it's not a bad picture.

  • It's just not at all like what I was expecting.

  • You got his face better than me, I think.

  • - I did get his face.
