Coraline - Let them be happy. by LadyIcepaw Coraline - Let them be happy. by LadyIcepaw
When my brother isn't at home, I sometimes make myself comfortable in his room and watch movies on Netflix - usually animated movies or cheesy RomComs.
Yesterday I watched "Coraline" without really knowing what to expect, and oh boy, it was absolutely great. I mean, it's probably the scariest and most bizarre kid's movie I've ever seen (some of these jumpscares really got me good), and I guess I would have been pretty terrified if I would've seen it when I was a small kid, but the style is so unique and beautiful and I just love how this movie bursts with symbolism. It was refreshing to see something so different from the usual Disney movies.

One thing I noticed was that every main character appears to have a distinct, recognizable way of moving or a certain kind of posture that is unique to them. Wybie, for example, tends to have a very slumped posture and tilt his head very often, and I think he also fidgets with his hands a lot. He actually reminds me of myself when I was a kid, which is probably why I like him so much. And the 'other' him is just really fascinating, I don't even know when was the last time I felt so much compassion for a character in a movie.

I just watched it days ago, for the first time.

Wybie is such a cute dork. Who wouldn't love that guy?

Wow! I really like how you described Wybie, & especially the way you drew him here. ^__^ The fog effect you created is *so* fitting of this film, too~:music:

Do you think you might read the book? The film was, I believe, based off of Coraline by Neil Gaiman. (I found it on, but... ...I can't tell if they sell any translated into German. -_- I'm sorry...… )

Thanks! I'm considering to read the novella, maybe I'll ask my Mum to get it for me next time she uses her amazon-account. ^^ And I actually like to choose the original english version of books or movies whenever I get chance, they're good practice :)
