Centipede by Zimeta Centipede by Zimeta
A spitfire contest entry for the Tim Burton Halloween contest at: :icondisney-club:

I didn't want to draw something from The Nightmare Before Christmas (because of course, that's what most of the entries are), so I did something for James and the Giant Peach. It was a weird movie, but very entertaining for kids. ^.^
When I was little I always felt bad for the Centipede. Hehe.

The Centipede may be one of the last animated heroes to smoke. I haven't seen one in recent years. :/ It seems only villains are allowed to smoke anymore, which is unfair to the good people in real life who smoke, I think. Poor fellers. They're not evil.

I remember this guy! He used to scare me when I was little, I don't know why. He's cool! I really liked this movie, and your artwork does remind me a lot of its atmosphere : D I like how he has two arms holding things, and the other two clasped together. That's cute~

Centipede is awesomeness personified. He's flawed, selfish sometimes and reluctant to admit to mistakes he might have made, yet in the End when it matters risks his life to ensure the safety of his friend (by jumping into the icy water to get the compass). He easily is one of the best animated characters in recent history :) Great job!

Stop motion is definitely an underrated, if not misunderstood craft. It just takes a while to get used to, I guess. :D
