'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.
