Does anyone know if the Disneyland artists will draw a character of your choice? I want to get some classic characters which are hard to find.

They don't "trace" it. Me being an artist I can tell you that they do that just for the general shape and proportion. After doing a rough sketch they add all the details like the eyes, hair, dress, etc. and they add their own artists spin. Disney characters are very hard to draw perfectly and perfection is a big deal to the company so having to partially "trace" to get a rough idea isn't as big as a deal as you think it is. Afterall you wouldn't want your picture of Belle from beauty and the Beast to look like some stupid creature from the world of lilo and stitch - SarahInWonderland  42.9 #5080 11:03PM
they will only draw what is in the book, so unless its in there they can't do it. - chris.  2511.4 #57 9:25PM
so they won't draw me dave vs. panda vs. hot dog? - MayBie  1885.6 #90 9:46PM
You can pick the pencil colours and maybe some words added. - theDebsterM  138.2 #2913 9:48PM
maybe they will. - chris.  2511.4 #57 9:50PM
Thanks guys! I really want to get an Oswald drawing or Horace & Clarabelle - xsdesign  421.7 #527 10:21PM
they might have oswald, i would check off the page the book is pretty big for drawings. - chris.  2511.4 #57 10:23PM
Thanks! I'll check that out next time I'm there. - xsdesign  421.7 #527 10:25PM
I think I saw Oswald there- I was looking for a steamboat Willie :) - SteamboatMinnie  310.6 #851 11:14PM
Am I the only one who doesn't think this is worth it?! They trace the sketches and it's $35. - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 10:36PM
It's magical - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #163 10:53PM
It's not traced- I've watched them do it. Yes I am that creepy girl who watches the artists... :X - SteamboatMinnie  310.6 #851 11:08PM
^^^^^ This - SarahInWonderland  42.9 #5080 11:12PM
I got one before I think it's totally worth it. The artist was so awesome. We chatted for a while and when I came back to pick up my drawing she was teaching a little girl how to draw Ariel's eyes. So cute :) - Jillian  767.1 #244 11:12PM
plus they constantly sharpen their pencils. that, in itself, is A M A Z I N G !! - misschurro  6362.2 #17 11:13PM
At Off the Page they will. Not sure what their pricing is but I'd say it's worth it. - MayBie  1885.6 #90 9:23PM
I think its around $35 for one character. And $60 for two.. if I remember correctly - AlexGold  121.2 #3204 9:28PM
Im tempted to do this depending on character choices and poses - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #56 9:34PM
Can't do star wars, I think, but if it's a Disney only property, I would think it's okay. - bluefairy  643.8 #313 10:01PM
I was thinking something to do.with Alice and.Hatter - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #56 10:51PM

There's a store on both sides of Main Street. Not sure if they'll draw any character, but its worth a shot to just ask.  - BaseballMickey_CM  7599.7 #11 9:49PM

Wow 35-60 bucks for a drawing? Sounds like a dream job. Are they paintings or pretty much just sketches? - ELCAPITAN  55.4 #4563 11:52PM
Depends- I'm pretty sure you can get color for more $$$ and sketch for less. - SteamboatMinnie  310.6 #851 12:25AM

I talked to a cast member on Thursday and she said that they have a bunch of new sketches designed for the artists, but have to wait for Florida to catch up on theirs. One of the new sketches is Oswald though! Approve it Disney!!! - xsdesign  421.7 #527 11:11AM
Always waiting on Florida - Mouse4life  1679.6 #100 11:12AM
