"Colors of the Wind"

"Have you ever heard the wolf cry
to the blue corn moon
or asked the grinning bobcat
why he grinned?
Can you sing with all
the voices of the mountain?
Can you paint with all
the colors of the wind...
Can you paint with all
the colors of the wind?"

This artwork was made inspired by the emotional Disney classic, "Pocahontas". The last scene, also for unforgettable Alan Menken music, with the track "Farewell", is emotional as ever and shows the ship, with John Smith on it, going away from Pocahontas that on a drop watches his love moving away to England. The scene on the top is instead the kiss before Kokoum gelosy attack, made with the technic of new age arts, the same during the song, icon of the movie, "Colours of the Wind" when Pocahontas sings "Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?" becoming a wonderul mix of colors fightin' within.

Tutti i tuoi lavori sono fantastici! in pochi giorni, ho guardato quasi tutte le tue gallerie e si vede subito che ci metti tutto te stesso in ciò che realizzi. Ho apprezzato eccome! dei lavori magnifici, anche quelli sulla Bella e la Bestia ( che è il mio secondo film Disney preferito dopo Pocahontas)...Che dirti? Complimenti davvero! continua così, e ti auguro davvero di cuore di avere successo in tutto ciò che farai. Sei il migliore :) (Smile)

<3 <3 <3 mi lusinghi incredibilmente con queste parole. Davvero, non so neanche come ringraziarti :D eheheheheh, non sai che bello ricevere commenti simili. Ha parecchio che non posto lavori o più semplici fan arts, ma sono giusto preso dal lavoro (fra cui progetti riservati da NDA di cui non posso neanche lasciar trapelare piccoli scorci o dettagli), ma spero di potermi rifare al più presto e di ritrovarmi dinanzi ad uno dei commenti dei tuoi :D Grazie ancora infinite *-*

It's so nice when artist reply on comment- seriously- I don't write much comments becouse of my English (still studying ;-;) but you always reply-> so you read them-> sooo you know that I love all (srsl ALL) of your artworks and maybe you are just a bit happier :D And that's the best.

I think that kindness is the most important thing of being, well, just a human as all the others. Receiving kind words as yours only could receive thanks for exhange, it's the smallest (and smarter) thing to do in a case as this. My english is awful and surely weaker than yours eeheheheheh, do not worry, yours is great :D
BTW I'm so proud that u liked all my works, a truly honour that people from another part of the world appreciate my works, and I'm from Italy. Thank you, thank you a lot, really, and I hope you will appreciate also my next works :D best to you, my friend :)

Now, hen we both know that our English sucks we can talk without any barriers :D
Well if I would need to make my best DA artists ranking you would be on...2nd or 3rd place ;D But still if I would need to choose which arts I want on my wall it would be totally yours (like ,,
FROZEN - Let it GO!" or ,,Cinderella - Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo" -they are just stunning, you can show all the emotions and that's the best!). Ach Italy! In May for the first time I will go abroad, for the first time and to Italy ♥ Well...with my class, but still it sounds like a dream. All these buildings and art aaaw I looove these kind of things. Can't wait to see it.
Greetings from cold and frosty (well in summer there is hot like in hell :3) Poland (^w^)

You're extremely kind, my friend. Italy is lovely, I seriously advice it to everyone, expecially from Europe and out. Thanks a lot for your nice words and I'm so glad you liked my special works about 'Frozen' and 'Cinderella', those are my experiment to try to re-create a movement without no working on animations, almost not for this time. I hope you will enjoy also my next works. Again, thank you so much and I hope I will be able to visit Poland soon too as well you will come to Italy :D
Cheers :D

I'll remain always faithful to Poca-Smith XD I totally hated the 2nd film (also if I know how the story in reality was). BTW thanks a lot for your comment about, too kind :D

I know, right? I hated the 2nd movie too, it absolutely ruined the whole story from the 1st movie, and its script, story and animation quality was horrible. It basically contradicted almost everything from the 1st movie, what isn't quite clever... Pocahontas 2 kind of broke my heart.

I hated too the 2nd movie. This is the same reason why I prefer try to think Disney movies as without eventual sequels or prequels etc
Reply
:iconloveanimals8:
LoveAnimals8 Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2014
Yeah, that's exactly how I think. I prefer SO much thinking about the Disney classics without their low-quality sequels and prequels. I think that the magic of the classics was kind of lost with the 2nd movies.

RoseGirlXS Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2014
Your welcome. I can respect the fact if people prefer Pocahontas with John Smith---after all, he was her love interest in the original movie. I'm kind of stickler for historical accuracy, and that's one of the reasons I prefer the Pocahontas/John Rolfe-pairing.
