its been a while since i did one of these images with audio eueb anyways i did a screencap redraw.. or more like repaint 

Okay… I would like to make a speech thing… ABOUT THIS MOVIE “THE LAND BEFORE TIME.”

Without this movie, I literally would not be sitting here drawing today. When I first began drawing, all I drew were dinosaurs and creatures— HEAVILY inspired by this movie… and now when I look back at this movie, I just appreciate the animation and art of it more. I know it’s an old movie, so the quality isn’t the most HD-ish thing in the world, but whenever I look at the movements and expressions, it’s just soooo WELL DONE AND PHENOMENAL LIKE .. I CAN’T. As for the land before time series that came after the original movie, they cannot compare.

This will sound weird, but the death of Littlefoot’s mother is my favorite scene of the entire movie as well as whenever he somehow spiritually communicates to his mother through his heart.  I know that it’s a really sad scene, but when I watched this when I was like 4-5, it was probably the first time in my entire life I actually remember feeling emotions when watching a film. Many animated films I’ve watched inspired me artistically when I was a kid, but this was one of the first scenes I’ve probably ever watched in any animated film that actually made me feel sick to my stomach. Back then, I always rewinded back to this scene several times just to get that kick of emotion because it was something I did not feel often. I really LOVED the way the movie was able to leave an emotional impact on me, even if it was really depressing because I was able to feel SOMETHING on an emotional level just from watching this movie. To be honest, this movie also probably gave me a greater understanding about death, mourning, and overcoming it.

I also always cry over the idea about even though someone is no longer with you, they’re still with you spiritually, or in your heart. You can make any character die, and I probably won’t really cry over it unless someone gives a small speech about the importance of the heart. It’s just.. FGHDFKGJHDFFDKGH. GUHGGHGUG. It’s sad when someone physically dies, but the emotional connection that lives on ALWAYS GETS TO ME….. anyways that’s all for now BYE

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There goes my heart and my childhood- this was the saddest scenes in all animated movies for me, apart from Bambi (I mean, COME ON) and this just brings back parts of my childhood! Basically, you made me cry, but in a good way!

This has to be one of the most saddest death scenes in animation. Mufusa's death from The Lion King scared me for life since I was very little! (No pun intended.) Also Aerith's death from Final Fantasy VII was really sad. God the piano was so sad and beautiful!
