The Doctor is In by y2jenn The Doctor is In by y2jenn
I like Doppler. He's a great character and Treasure Planet really is one of those unsung Disney greats... despite the flashy and sometimes unnecessary CG. I stumble over Treasure Planet fanart once in a while. Doppler was one of those I'd seen on dA recently so I was inspired! Drawing him (with reference from the Art of Treasure Planet book) has really shown me just how much my stuff is still influenced by Disney. Which isn't a bad thing! It actually made me smile to realize that a small part of me still wants to work for them oneday.

I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. It was a challenge to do without losing my style. But, like always, if you got crits lemme have 'em! :heart:

oh, this looks great ^^, u drew him pretty well !
Zeldia Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2010
wow, very nice!
To me, Delbert looks like a character to draw, don't know why but its the same with the Beast. I'm jealous to see that you draw him this good.
Would be fun to see it in color or ink but on the same time I think it looks better as it is.

Excellent work! :wow: Yes, I think Treasure Planet is one of the forgotten Disney Films.
It's nice to see someone drawing Doctor Doppler to this standard on Deviantart! Well done! :D

Treasure Planet I think is really under-appreciated. Doppler is great :) And you rendered him perfectly! :D

So much energy and charm in this drawing... excellent job!!!
In-Tays-Head Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aw, Doppler! Doppler's my favorite in the movie. ^_^ This is neat. I don't think I've seen decent fanart for Treasure Planet that doesn't pretty much mimic the style. :D
SteamCrow Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Really nice and tasty. Good firm character.
the-taxidermy Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2006
treasure planet really was an amazing movie that didnt get the credit it deserved, though i guess its for the best so they dont ruin it with a sequal (talk around is that they might :\ )

anywho, this is a wonderful piece, i love seeing non-anime tradional media fan art :heart:
TheIncompetentGenius Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2006  Student General Artist

Fav for sure

y2jenn Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2006   General Artist
Nope, not yet! I have a hard time getting anthro-ish characters to work in my style sometimes. She's one on my to-do list though! And thanks so much. :D
generationm Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2006  Hobbyist Artist

Amberthyst Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
I've always loved this guy :D. I'm glad that I finally get to see some fanart of him!

As for crits, all I can say is that it would be cool to see this without the blue lines (there ARE tutorials out there on it!).
y2jenn Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2006   General Artist
Oh, I know there's tutorials on how to remove the blue lines. I'm not goin to remove them though. ;) The blue is more or less my trademark.

I'm so glad you liked this though! There just isn't enough Doppler fanart out there. Thank you!
savagebinn Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2006   General Artist
That was a cool movie, you captured him very well in this! The expression is just right. :aww:
RyuDan Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2006

Treasure planet was an underrated piece. I liked it. Mmmph space pirates!
inlezorn Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2006
I'm afraid I am unfamiliar with this cartoon and character but I am very intrigued with Doppler =D Wonderful piece and I will say that Disney would be hella lucky to have an artist of your talent working for them!!!!!!!!!! :love:
arjay911 Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2006
i so agree. TP was an awesome disney movie and shouldve been appreciated more. :D

dr doppler's tha best!! he looks a little different with your version, but tha best!!! all the same. :giggle:
Lokotei Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist

Yeah, I love that movie. I agree, it's one of the greats. Unfortunately, when it came out, people were already losing faith in the Disney name, so a lot of them didn't even bother with it. Every time I watch it, though. I'm reminded of how much I love it. The dounstrack, the story, the leaps Disney took away from their normal story-telling style.

This was a treat for my inbox. ^__^
Marker-Guru Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2006  Professional Traditional Artist
WOW! HAHA! hes my favorite non-human doctor EVER!
i really love how this turned out.
I love his ears nad his eyes alot. and his hair is to die for =D
I cant think of anything to crit on =C
I LOVE how you captured his facial structure, especially in his chin...
I know this is going to sound terrible, but i want to see his skull.
Arzuza Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2006
great pencils.....the lineart is very clean...;) i like it
Wyv-Kate Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2006
That's really, REALLY well done! I watched Treasure Planet for the first time just last year and I was startled at how much I liked it, considering how much I'd heard to the contrary. That's such a great portrait of him, his face is perfect!
reed682 Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
I always liked that movie. The moon port, the sailing/star ships. Very imaginative and a lot of fun. :D

I think you did a great job translating your style and yet keeping his feel.
domkitty Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2006   Filmographer
Ah, a brilliant rendition of a brilliant character from my all time favourite Disney movie

The line quality is beautiful here, so clean and smooth
Anafiel Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
if you ever work for them...please put some chili powder on their dog is coming up with more original ideas for movies anymore than they are! ~huffs then sits quite politely~ Doppler's a sweet puppy! lucky dad that he is!
rakie Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2006
YES Dr Doppler! Kickass.
LightBombMike Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2006  Professional Filmographer
you definetly kept your own style in it! I think that back eye could have a BIT more face showing past it... makes the eye feel somewhat bulbous at the moment... but that is hella nitpicky!
Bryce-Lee Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2006  Professional Traditional Artist
You are the heat, looks ultimo awesome

Lovely. Especially how the hair and eyebrows are drawn. :D
Istra Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I *adore* Treasure Planet. ^_^ It's so cool. I should watch it again. :giggle:

"Dang it, Jim. I'm an astronomer, not a doctor! I mean, I am a doctor, but I'm not that kind of doctor. I have a doctorate, it's not the same thing. You can't help people with a doctorate. You just sit there and you're useless! "

:giggle: And I love how he ends up ... erm ... in the end! *won't spoil for non-viewers* HE'S TOTALLY COOL AND HILARIOUS THO'!!

... um ... yeh. Me and my little fangirl self will be over in the corner quoting the movie and laughing hysterically ... by ourselves ... ^_~

Nicely done, of course. ^_^
