Manny and Gypsy by Zimeta Manny and Gypsy by Zimeta
A little entry into the :icondisney-club: Valentine's Day contest. :heart:

I'd been missing drawing lesser-loved characters for fanart contests, so this time I decided to get back into it. Who wants to go for the win anyway? Pah!

This is Manny and Gypsy from A Bug's Life. I like them because you don't get a lot of older married couples in animated movies who aren't the parents of the hero/es. Plus I love mantises and moths. :3

Oh look, my childhood OTP 

I even designed some kids for them, but then I realized that couldn't work...and then just came up with a lacewing kid that they adopt.

It's truly a delightful irony. I'm sure there's plenty of other betrayers of biology in the movie, but I can't think of them now...

Agreed. Even though they don't get much screen-time they still come off as such a sweet couple.
Plus they were played by Jonathan Harris and Madeline Kahn. (Imagine the comedic possibilities for that.)

Awwww, these two are adorable together! :iconomgsocuteplz: I love them! And I love the movie!

"Oh, yet again it is up to me to rescue the performance. Gypsy, come." *crash*
"Stage is the other way, dear."
"Yes of course."

I love all the colors you use and the well-placed highlights. This piece is just magical.

Of course! In the movie PT Flea says "You and your husband are up now" when they're about to go on stage. Hehe. I guess a lot of people didn't notice!

Ah, this was one of my favourite pairings too - I always loved the idea of characters who were already married, and not simply to be background characters or parents of main characters. In my own stories I often have main characters married from the start (Or near it, anyway). It'd be neat if the movie had explored their relationship further - if perhaps A Bug's Life had a sequel or a TV series. It had the potential, am I right?!

Anyway, excellent picture - very vibrant, and the colours work quite well together.

Indeed! Staying in love can be just as interesting as falling in love. :D We need more already married couples.

Yes. In fact, I've been inspired this week to get back to work on another comic of mine, which begins only about a year after the main characters are married. Though the focus is a sort of adventure/super hero sort of story, there'd be plenty of background humour relating to the married life (In a positive sense. I hate how some shows and comics make marriage look like its a chore or irritating). But this comic would be 100% vector, stepping away from my usual ways of hand drawing.

And you're welcome!

Thanks! It is one of Pixar's more underrated films. Way better than Brave, I think. ^.^

You're welcome =) I agree; to be honest, Brave didn't impressed me at all: aside from a stunning graphic (which isn't surpising since it's Pixar), it wasn't something special or original, and in my opinion, the plotline was kinda weak. It's sad that some call "A Bug's Life" 'the weakest Pixar movie', it was one of my favorites back in childhood. :heart:

I do like this couple in A Bug's Life, and I agree, I feel that they need a bit more fanart. And I do also think it's nice that they're an older couple, which you don't often see in animated films - the only other one in Pixar I can think of is Carl and Ellie. :aww:

 

Well done, this is great. :aww:
