Akhir-akhir ini putriku, Sjahrazad, suka dan sering menyanyikan 'Let It Go!' setelah diajak Bunda menonton film animasi terbaru Disney, Frozen. Terus-terusan mendengarnya menyanyikan lagu tersebut akhirnya tergoda juga menggambarnya. Jadilah kuambil pena dan mulai menggambar.
Karena tanpa referensi --ya.. sebenarnya sambil menonton klip Let It Go tetapi bajunya baru berubah di sepertiga akhir dan setelah itu putriku menonton klip2 lain yang tidak ada Elsa dewasa dengan bajunya-- praktis aku benar-benar menggambar murni dari ingatan. Alhasil, selama menggambar dengan kritikan dari istri sana-sini, "bajunya kurang mirip.. bajunya mestinya begini.. begitu.."
Tadinya rencana hanya sketsa saja, nanti diwarnai di komputer tetapi putriku karena melihatku menggambar tiba-tiba bilang, 'pengen mewarnai'. Ya sudahlah. Akhirnya diwarnai pakai crayon-crayon miliknya. Supaya tidak merecokiku, putriku mesti dialihkan perhatiannya dengan gambar-gambar lain untuk diwarnainya. Istriku masih dengan sadis mengritik, "kayaknya jangan pakai warna biru gelap untuk langitnya.. warna kulitnya bagusan pakai crayon yang ini, bukan itu.."
Setelah usai, gambarnya kutunjukkan ke Sjahraz. Melihatnya, ia langsung bernyanyi, "Let it gooo... "
Ah. Senangnya. Walau gambar ini tak mirip, tetapi minimal bisa menciptakan nuansa yang membuat putriku mengenalinya.
Si Buta dari Gua Hantu (The Blind of the Mystic Cave) was a character created by Ganes T.H. The character blinded his own eyes to master the technique which could detect a movement so fast which any eye couldn't see. He needed to master it in order to defeat Mata Malaikat (The Angel Eye) which also a blind warrior.
The stick and his clothes came from the dragon he defeat in the cave. The stick were stronger than any sword and in the comic version, was so sharped so it could function as sword. Too bad, the stick was never slashed anything or anyone in its movies and TV series incarnations.
The following picture describe Arjuna and his brother, Bima. The latter often became theme of my sketches due to his muscle, claw, long hair, and thick mustache. The former was rarely became my inspiration but when I drew him, I usually wanted to drew someone with arrow.
The following two pictures describe the same scene which came from Sumbadra Larung (Sumbadra Over the Water).
The story started with Burisrawa (Duryudana's son) who could not take his lost and still wanted Sumbadra. So in her wedding day, Burisrawa jumped over the Kaputren fence (Kaputren - part of palace for ladies) and tried to seduce her. While Sumbadra was still loyal to his newlywed husband, Burisrawa threatened her with Keris Knife, but an accident happened and she was stabbed to death.
Burisrawa ran and left her behind. Srikandi found the body and told others. To fish the criminal out, Kresna (Khrisna) advised Pandawa brothers to let her be put on a boat on the river and let Gatotkaca watched over her.
Meanwhile, Antareja, Bima's forgotten son from his previous adventure (see Bima vs Dragon [Naga]) wanted to find his father. He came to the surface with a medicine that could heal the wound no matter how worse it was. He found the boat where Sumbadra was and applied his miracle medicine to her. Meanwhile, Gatotkaca, never met Antareja before, mistook him as the criminal who stabbed his aunt. And then came the fight between those two.
