Before you say that these pictures are crappy or horrible, please take a minute to read this.
My little brother (he´s 5 years old) drew them for me and they are one of the greatest gift I´ve ever got.
A few weeks ago we watched some episodes of Tron:Uprising and he realized how much I love this show. So he decided to draw me some pictures. He built a little mailbox out of an old shoebox and put these pictures as a surprise into it. You can guess how happy I was, when I discovered the pictures.
1) This Beck fighting Clu, Dyson and some soldiers.
2) Mara´s head is a little too big, but she looks happy. :)
3) Paige´s hair got a little bit messy, but she has the right circuit color. :)
4) Group photo of Clu´s soldiers.
5) This is Tron. Tron has 2 discs. :D
6) Tron and Beck fighting Clu and Dyson.
7) And this one is my favourite. Beck is so tiny and looks kinda weird but I always have to laugh when I look at it.
8) And last but not least: the great Clu himself.
This is what you get when you watch T:U with a child. :D I know, they only have heads, arms and legs, but that´s what makes them unique. They are cuttlefish, ok? :D
I´m really happy to have a little brother who draws me some Uprising guys. :) This cheers me up evertime I´m sad.
This has completely made my day! Thank you for sharing, Blanche, and even greater thanks to your little brother for his thoughtfulness in not just who they’re of (from a great series we all love!), but also in how he gave them to you (the whole mailbox idea makes it all the more endearing); it’s a heartfelt gift.
There are more than enough artists who never let their art see the light of day, or who stall for wont of greater/accurate quality - I can definitely speak out of experience in these - but nobody should forget that meaningfulness virtually always surmounts workmanship.
(P.S.: Cuttlefish are awesome creatures! … Now you set my poor, overactive subconscious gears in motion. Option A) one can imagine Sea of Simulation cuttlefish. Or the more amusing option B) an AU where the Grid is all underwater (and the Sea of Simulation is some grand, foreboding abyss!), and cuttlefish-Programs are the sentient beings of the Grid! …. Actually, it reminds me of this one dream I had. But, that’s for another time.)
(P. P. S.: Cuttlefish Tesler. =p … would he instead be some kind of monstrous Kraken? He’s an old Program. Wait… “Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Tesler R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn!”)
