William and Nell Van Dort by Madame-Kikue William and Nell Van Dort by Madame-Kikue
Drew/outlined this pic from my previous summer vacation... and then finished it for today. XP I wanted to draw other different characters in this pic, since I "mostly" draw Victor, Victoria, and/or Scraps.

Anyway, here's William and the harpy... er, I mean Nell Van Dort, the parents of Victor Van Dort. I have to admit; Nell seems to be an okay character (after all she was voiced by Tracy Ullman). But I like William better, since his personality and his character design seems decent.

Sorry if there's any errors on this pic. I could've merge down a little, but.... eh, oh well. XP Enjoy.

Here's a curious little factoid: Tim Burton and HBC's children are named William and Nell, too.:P

You don't say? :XD:

Well, I do know that Tim's son was named 'Billy.' Also, little 'Nellie' was born in around 2008's.

Yup. William and Nell. I think they're named for HBC's family.

Lol I've always like William. He just seemed so laid back and cool with things. I don't know why, but I get the feeling that he was quite the daredevil in his younger days. :XD:

Anyway, great job on these two! I missed seeing your drawings.

Thanks.

Yeah, unlike Nell Van Dort, William does seems to be cool with things while being patient, and of course seems to be the only parent who cares his son, Victor, very much.

You're welcome. :)

I actually remember reading a fanfic about how Nell was always angry towards Victor because she wanted a girl, and it kinda focused on the relationship William and Victor had growing up. It was really cute. ^^

Oh, yeah; that fanfiction. I remembered when I read it, and it was pretty good so far. :nod:

I like Victor's parents better. At least they have some what of a sense of humor.

Yeah, and I think they're better than Victoria's parents, if you know what I mean.

I do. Victoria's parents are so awful. It's amazing she didn't turn out like them.
Reply
:iconailemadragonprincess:
Of course it is. I'm sure she'll be wise enough to give her parents an ideal punishment that fits the set of crimes they committed, which are the mistreating of their daughter, being victims of their own credulity (evidenced Maudeline thinking she was mad when actually Victoria was honest all along, leading them to locking her in the room, with the key that needs to be stolen, and placed her in her room again not only by sealing the doors, but also barring the windows. Eesh, talk about crossing the line twice!), marrying her to the wrong man, and committing treason by doing the ones I mentioned before this. Do you think a beheading, a hanging, or banishment could make a good punishment?

Any of these would work fine with me.

Indeed. And what works for us is that when they arrive in the land of the dead, the dead inhabitants will do to them as they did Lord Barkis. I wonder what they did to him. Something gruesome, I bet.

William was so cute in the movie :) I liked that part when he's taking the musket away from Mr. Everglott X3

Thanks. ^^

Yeah, William seems to be an interesting character since his design, even though he's the only parent who concern about his son.

As for Nell, I don't hate nor dislike her, though. I have to admit, I found her pretty hilarious, even though she was voiced by British comedian Tracey Ullman. But yeah, she was being a nasty b*tch with her snobbish attitude in film. Heck, since her personality, this made the Queen of Hearts' (Walt Disney version) more "likable." :XD:

And yeah, based on the illustrated fancomic that I read, I used the word "harpy" as joke on Nell, since the character called her that. :XD:

Very true.

Hahaha, yeah; imagine their reaction if they saw the dead people... and then Nell's reaction to Victor after the end of the film. XD

Nell: Victor Van Dort, you have a lot of things to explain about this situation!

Victor: :fear: Eep!

Nell: While you're going to wed to Miss Everglot (again) in the next three weeks.... You are grounded! Grounded! No free time! No desserts! (etc. )

Victor: TT________TT
