Since I’m fan of the Disney show The Owl House, I couldn’t help but notice another show closely linked to it: Amphibia!
I watched the whole show aired so far up on one weekend and soon had to paint two of my favorite characters. And even during the hiatus, I left references in other paintings I created during this time. On this webpage you will find them all. And since the third and last season now started again, I every so often may give my 5 cents of what I think of the episodes airing.
Crossover Amphibia x The Owl House
Amphibia is over, it ended with a awesome finale. However, The Owl House still was airing until recently. In the season 2’s finale there was one detail that immediately caught my eyes: The picture of Anne Boonchuy in the newspaper on Camila’s tablet. This not only confirms (again) that both shows play in the same universe, at this very moment my head also created this picture of Camila contacting the Boonchuys for some kind of self-help group or similar and how this way Luz and Anne finally meet to share their experiences.
Because it felt like half of the fandom was shipping Anne with one of the other girls but it wasn’t meant to be canon whereas Luz actually found a girlfriend on the Boiling Isles, I just had to pick this up.
Plus, it’s the first time I drew Anne. I drew Marcy before, Terri and Luz, of course. But it’s the first time I drew Anne. Again I tried to paint in my own style but to keep her recognizable by not abandoning the Disney features totally.
Addendum: I also watched Gravity Falls last week. Since all three shows almost canonically take place in the same uni/multiverse, the idea of Dipper commenting the conversation (and Mabel talking back to him) seemed the obvious thing.
I had to paint them a little bit older than in the show because they would be almost 23 years old by now and of course I painted them in my own style. Still, I tried to keep them recognizable by keeping the „Disney roundness“.
As with Anne before too, I had to search the internet for their eye colours because in the show the eyes are only small black dots. They are brown but it isn’t mentioned which brown. So I simply chose the same brown as Anne’s hair colour. Luckily, Dipper’s and Mabel’s skin and hair colours are the same, so I could stick to the same colour palette.
You also will spot a Waddles ear pendant, a little Easter egg I gave Mabels to underline the weirdness she still maintains even as an adult.
Season 3 Episode 17: Escape to Amphibia
Terri is awesome!
I loved her immediately after her first appereance and now even more! Besides, I wasn’t this wrong with the background of my Terri painting. And the yoghurt covered pretzels gave me a good laugh.
Likewise, I really really are in love with Anne’s partens. They are so awesome, so supportiv. They make me proud of my generation (yes, I already am this old), I’m happy that we are not depicted like some sticks up their butts pricks as usually is tempting to show in a kids show to give the protagonist even more trouble than they already have, but the cheerful nerds we are.
„Space parents are the worst!“ – We grew up with Star Wars and Star Trek after all!
In general it was great to see all the supportive supporting characters again and all in one place. It was awesome to see their interactions and how they all work together to get Anne and the Plantars back to Amphibia.
Finally, I got the impression, Anne’s powers become more steady, it even felt like she could awake them on purpose.
It was one of the best episodes so far – I’m still hooked!
