EDIT: Guys, please don't start flooding this deviation with comments about Disney buying Lucasfilm. This drawing was made WAY before that happened, if you look at the date in which it was submitted. Not to mention that I have a similar piece here [link] dated 2010. I've been having this parody in my mind since 2005, when Episode III came out and I got into Star Wars (and I didn't even have access to internet, just saying), so this has nothing to do with Disney buying Lucasfilm. Please read descriptions or look at the submitting date before commenting! Thank you!
I TOLD YOU I WOULD HAVE DONE IT
NOT EXACTLY, BUT
...you should've expect it!!!
Remember this old thing? [link]
(man I loved how Donald came out there...how the hell did I manage to draw him from that perspective??? I swear I CAN'T DO IT NOW, NO MATTER HOW I TRY)
Yeah, my old project of mixing Disney and Star Wars which are basically my two favorite things EVER.
I started this project when I was 13 and somehow I need to do it...even if it will never be published...heck, it could be a webcomic maybe?? XD Of course it will be a parody full of humor and silly things :> but nothing prevents me from drawing (not so) epic scenes from it, right?
So you have... Anakin Skyduck vs Mace Mickey 8D
Guys... I do feel like Donald is totally the only one Disney character who could "play" Anakin's part. Call me crazy, but they have a lot in common! XD Both have a "bad" attitude but they're good inside (if we don't count the part in Episode III where Ani is really really really bad and kills everyone of course), both tend to be leaded by their emotions such as anger and impulsiveness and so they make mistakes, both are stubborn, and...yeah, I would say, both have a "dark side" but try to fight it and let the good part win in the end 8D
Ok, better I stop before someone interns me, but let me tell you just one more thing (dangerous Disney/SW rant ahead, be careful) : something like a year ago I found this thing [link]
and it just felt SO WRONG to me. Not to mention it touches me deeply because my inner 13 year-old self feels like someone stole her the idea of mixing SW and Disney haha! xD
But let me explain! (PLEASE NOTE THAT WHAT FOLLOWS IS JUST MY OPINION AND MY POINT OF VIEW ON THINGS!) It may sound stupid, but since I was a little child I've always been a hardcore fan of Donald, and I just hated the way in which cartoons such as the House Of Mouse depict him. I mean... from the little things I remember from that show, in episodes which showed Donald, Mickey was always getting attention and make everyone laugh at him. Then some Mickey's enemy would convince Donald to get revenge on Mickey, he was always refusing still claiming that he's his best friend, and eventually do something wrong, try to fix it for the sake of Mickey and 90% of the times STILL ending up being the loser of the show with Mickey making fun of him with no apparent reason, even though Donald tried to defend him. O_o
AND, in the Nutcracker Disney version of 1999, Donald was in the role of the Mouse King (what the hell, Mickey's a mouse!) just because he had to be the bad guy.
SO. It upsets me so much that they threw Mickey into the role of Anakin, first because Mickey is the model of perfection and of the winner, and Anakin IS NOT.
Second, because yeah, Mickey is NEVER the bad guy....but this time he is, just because Ani is Star Wars main character and in every parody Mickey just HAS to be the main character or it's like someone will die. FACEPALM
And who's Donald? Darth Maul?? A clone trooper? D: Sigh.
At least in the Old Trilogy edition of these toys Donald is Han (even though I still can't face the fact the Mickey/Luke has Daisy as twin sister, but oh well...no big deal).
OK I KNOW THEY'RE JUST TOYS, but still, as I said before, it hurts my inner 13 year-old childish self so yeah. Speaking rationally, I do know they don't have anything to do with the Star Wars story and such, they're just little collectibles (and they even look quite good if you ask me).
To cut this thing short: Mickey fans, please don't take it personally like I do!! XD I'm just a crazy girl who prefers unlucky stubborn losers like Donald. I have nothing against Mickey himself (he's also fun to draw!) it's just the House of Mouse's writers fault, and of course of the guys who did the Disney SW toys series!
and it's stronger than me, I just don't like total winners, but everyone has their opinion and I don't want to seem disrespectful.
I'm sorry for this rant! If you read it and don't insult me, I will be very grateful! :>
BUT MOST OF ALL!! PLEASE ENJOY THE ART!! It's very different from my usual things but I put my heart in doing it.
Sorry for the watermark, it's the first time I use it but I'm really too fond of this old project of mine.
Well...let me know what do you think, ok??
PS: I put in the "strips" category because it could be a scene from the actual comic...and it's made to look like a panel of a story published in the Italian Mickey Mouse magazine.
