Oogie Don't Play Fair - Gift by DarthRegina125 Oogie Don't Play Fair - Gift by DarthRegina125
"The sound'a rollin' dice
To me is music in the air,
'Cuz I'm a gamblin' Boogie Man
Although I don't play fair."

~ "Oogie Boogie Song", Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas"

Happy birthday, :iconmoonshadow150:! Told you I had the perfect present. :P
Yeah, Moonshadow's having her birthday party today, and I unfortunately couldn't be there due to transportation problems. So I decided to put my time into making her a present. :)

Moonshadow is completely obsessed with Duke Devlin from Yu-Gi-Oh, and she also loves Oogie Boogie. (Sorry, hun. I was gonna draw Duke, but you know how I am about humans. XD) Pretty much any gambling character, she loves them. ^^' She collects dice and her favorite card is the Ace of Spades. And she's obsessed with black and purple. Hence where the pic came from. :P

I'm VERY pleased with how this turned out. I used real dice as references for the ones in the pic (the big ones, anyways. The one's he's holding are kind of just quick cubes, but whatever. ^^'). I also used a reference for what Oogie's dice looked like. And I used cards as a ref. (Yes I used YOUR cards, Shadow. Lol)
As for Oogie, I've never drawn him. At all ^^' Not even a doodle, unless you count carving his silhoutte in a pumpkin for Halloween last year, but I had a guide for that. Lol. Anyways, I'm really happy with how he turned out. I used no references whatsoever, just drew him from memory. The only thing I couldn't do was his feet, hence why he has none here. XD

But yeah, lot of time into this. The sketches probably took me an hour and a half, because I kept screwing up on the dice. And then I got up at 8:30 and only just finished now at 12:10. So, about five hours of work. I made two sketches, one with the larger cards and dice, and one with Oogie. I colored them both seperately, then added the dice and cards into the Oogie picture later. O.o But it was totally worth it, because I love it ^^ Hope you do too, Shadow!

Please, please PLEASE do not use this for anything without my permission, I worked too hard on it to have it stolen. :( Thank you.

And I want to thank :iconpinkertonfx: for making her Oogie Boogie Dice, because I used them as a reference for the dice in this pic. XD


And this pic is also going under number 50 of the challenge - "Breaking the Rules", because I'm lazy and use any excuse to use something for it. Lol

I know, I didn't like him the first time I watched this movie as a kid, he freaked me out. XD Strange though, now that I'm older, most of my favorite Disney characters are villains.... XD

*GASP* *slaps wrist* Bad Shadow. Luxord is amazing. XD Yes, he's irritating, but how can you HATE him? Lol

I hate him because he sticks you in a card/die and is extremely irritating. ><

It is, I agree. ^^" It took me like eighteen tries. O.o

Beat him first try. Because I finally said screw it and just kept close to him at all times, he didn't have a long enough chance to turn me into a die because I was so fast at hitting him. XD

That you could beat on him? lol it took me like five seconds because I got frustrated enough to just attack him no matter what. XD

No, before I figured out that if you kept hacking at him he couldn't pull his little card trick. xD

Thank you ^^ And it is an amazing movie, isn't it? <3 Tim Burton is a genius!

Also, there's actually quite a bit of Nightmare fanart on DA. More of Jack and Sally than Oogie, but if you look hard enough you can find it. ^^'

Anyways, glad you liked it! ^^
