Mary and Dickon by SayuriMVRomei Mary and Dickon by SayuriMVRomei
Mary and Dickon from "The Secret Garden", the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
I tried to draw Kate Maberly as Mary but it was just too difficult and I gave up...so her face is different, but I kept the cute red hat:heart:
Dickon was surprisingly easier to draw^^
I LOVE these two, the novel is absolutely brilliant, and I really enjoyed the film:love: The soundtrack was perfect, the actors were very good, and the garden was so beautiful...^^

I definitely enjoyed it. It made a few controversial decisions, like killing off one of the trio in WW1, but I think it made sense. But hey, at least noone who watched it would ever ship Colin/Martha! (My thoughts on that ship: No. Just no. For one thing, she is much too old for him. More importantly, she is TERRIFIED of him.)
Dickon(Barret Oliver), though slightly different from his book counterpart, is very good, and really gets down the mystical boy whose obsessed with nurturing things aspect of his character, even if his portrayal is more wistful and less puckish than the Dickon in the book. Gennie James gets down Mary's brattiness, her displacement, her stubbornness, her anger at the world, but also her childish joy regarding the garden, which infects Dickon, Colin, and Ben; they really worked on showing how her mother's neglect had hurt her and how the garden was healing her. Colin(Jadrien Steele) is the bossy dreamer who has a softer, desperate side, and you get to see him struggle to walk; watching him and Mary interact was an absolute joy to watch.
My only gripe is Martha: she has a forced cheerfulness to her that I felt was wrong for the character, considering she's the one who starts Mary on the path to redemption. (Martha's reaction to Mary was to fangirl her for coming from India, then to adopt her as a little sister.) The rest of the supporting cast is great.

BTW, (this is a ship I discovered on AO3 recently) what do you think of the ship of Colin/Sara Crewe from A Little Princess? Also, how do you think Mary would react to the 1920's?

ha OMG yes it's so good it's now my favorite horror film. Esther is so beautiful and a sharp dresser, and she's smart above all. You'll really enjoy it. And I love the art for Esther. I joined a group here for Orphan called Adopt Esther. It's not so much scary but if you scary easy it may be scary for you. It's psychological mostly.
