Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
“It does not do to dwell on dreams, Harry, and forget to live.” —Dumbledore
The hand represents Harry, and there is a ribbon tied to his finger. The ribbon tied to his finger symbolizes the idea of “never forget“. The ribbon surrounds the idea of an utopia, in which Harry yearns for (to be with his parents). The two birds flying in the sky represents Harry’s parents. The clouds represent the state of a dream.
Kiki’s Delivery Service
All you can do when it gets like that is struggle. Draw and draw again. —Ursula
This time, I edited the birds such that they are in separate layers, and managed to manipulate them to make the whole piece more unified.
The Lion King
“Oh yes, the past can hurt. But from the way I see it, you can either run from it, or… learn from it.” —Rafiki
The whole design is inspired by a coat-of-arms. A coat-of-arms is the distinctive heraldic bearings or shield of a person, family, corporation, or country, which represents Simba’s status as the true overseer of the Circle of Life, thus the lion head. It also represents dignity and thus Simba’s choice of facing his past. The clock symbolizes Simba’s past, and the blood dripping from it shows that the past can hurt.
The lion head represents Simba, and the courageous look of the lion symbolizes Simba’s ability to face his past (where he believes that it is his fault for his father’s death). The clock symbolizes Simba’s past, and the blood dripping from it shows that the past can hurt.
