Wallace and Gromit by Jimtheartist Wallace and Gromit by Jimtheartist
Hello All! :wave:

Thought i ought to post something special to celebrate the release of the classic English duo's latest adventure.

"A Matter of Loaf and Death"

The story has it Wallace and Gromit have started a new bread baking business, ‘Top Bun’ and have devoted the whole of 62 West Wallaby Street to the franchise...

All goes well until news goes round that rival bakers have started "disapearing" a preminision for disaster???? :?

For the full lowdown see here! [link]

This story still has venerable actor Peter Sallis (now aged 88) Playing Wallace with British Actress Sally Lindsay playing the role of new character Piella Bakewell.

Anywhoo just thought i'd do a quick fan peice in time for its Xmas debut on the BBC.

(Characters From the right.) Gromit and Wallace in their trusty Austin A35 van and newcomers "Piella Bakewell" and her pet Poodle "Fluffles".

Enjoy! :)

No worries mate! ;)

I thought you might like it.

Ive seen you're own W&G works, they're pretty good i think. :thumbsup: No worries about the haylup of it coming out. I cant say how long it'll be before it comes out on U.S. TV but be sure to watch it when it does!

14.3 million tuned in to watch it on Xmas day! :D it was the top of the national TV ratings on the day.

Thanks for the fave too!

All the best for the new year.

Cool. Puts me in mind of a particular style of drawing but I can't think what it's called (people aren't exactly falling over themselves to hire me as an art critic, lol). I enjoyed watching Loaf and Death- is Peter Sallis really 88? That's madness.

Thanks for the comment Dom! :highfive:

Hope your Xmas was good.

Now then, the style...hmm! not too sure i know myself but i have done a few drawings like this of late. I did it in charcoals and white chalk (messy messy!) and i liked the result.

You have to go about it in a different way to drawing as you've got to spot more "the form" of the objects rather than the lines and i feel you can get better at drawing things if you can understand the form well enough. :nod:

Yeah! Peter is really 88, couldn't believe it myself either when i first heard but you've got to take your hat off to him for still doing it at that age! :) For me it just wouldn't be the same without him!
However...If you listen to the BBC ident intro's (the one of W&G sledging) you can hear him straining a bit so i do wonder for how much longer can Mr Sallis undertake it?

I always appreciate your comments Dom! Keep them coming when you can.:)

All the best for the New year mate!

This is really good! It could be a poster for it if it was coloured :giggle: Didn't know they had a new one out. I like your rendering/shading technique- that's something I wish I could do because it means you don't have to add colour to achieve the feeling of depth/texture. Can't beleive it was a 'quick one' , so unfair :)

P.S. Just thought id say, quick drawings can have pleasing results alot of the time. Try it! I bet you could produce something good too if you tried! :)
Jimtheartist Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2008  Professional
Thank you very much! :thumbsup:

Yeah the new one is only 30 mins long and is due out Xmas Day on BBC1, Worth watching! :lol:

I'm glad you like the way i did this, i did it with charcoal pencils and white chalk, you can create marvellous results if you use them right ;)

I did want to colour it so bad but with verything that going on i was pushed for time. Is nice to know that it may have been good enough for a poster if it was though :aww: I'll bear that in mind for the future.

Thanks again + the fave too. :)
