Call Me Dean by shoomlah Call Me Dean by shoomlah
A snapshot of Dean McCoppin from The Iron Giant after a round of something with my suitemate, . All I know is that she's in his robe and he... Well, he looks happy.

Part of a Valentine's Day exchange amongst my friends, and an absolute blast to draw out- if you haven't seen The Iron Giant, please do.

I'm glad I read the description, else I'd be all over Tumblr with," ROUGEXDEAN, THE TRUE OTP!" Or, somethin' crazy... I love this by the way.

I've watched the Iron Giant a total of three times in my entire life. Once when I was small (my mom almost stopped it because I was crying so hard, she thought I was in pain), again when I was about ten (I had to strain my eyes because I was crying and it was hard to see the movie), and again just recently (in which I also cried). This movie just gets to me!

Very nice work on the style, though. It's very nice, and almost identical to the official movie! I love the use of the black and white polaroid photo theme. Something I wouldn't have thought of!

After having just seen your historical princesses... I can't help but point out polaroids weren't availible until 1972.... >_>

Hello shoomlah
I really want to cosplay Dean for the 10 year anniversary of Iron Giant.
Can you give me any tips on doing this?

(by the way, sorry about the cut and pasted post, I realize it's a little rude I hope you can forgive me.)

haha, fantastic- not sure what my tips would be beyond just watching the film, choosing an outfit, and getting as close to it as possible- luckily retro bowling shirts are not hard to come by, nor are black skinny jeans and pointy boots, and the hair should be easy enough to gel into enough of a bouffant. :)

Fellow Dean fan! lovely picture. I like the "special effects", if you will-the blue writing, the polaroid look...I wish I had photoshop so I could do all that...but I manage with my colored pencils :)

It's like finding a namesake whenever I see a girl with a white streak in the front of her hair. She's in his robe.. that says everything. lol.

I love that movie. It was sorely under-promoted. Excellent job with the fan art! It looks as if it could have been a scene from the film itself. :)

Dean is totally suave. you drew him perfectly. his reaction in the Iron Giant where the giant pulls a chewed-up piece of metal out of his mouth that ends up looking like a christmas tree was priceless.

It's intimidating, how well you emuate the style. That is tight.

I think this is the first piece of fanart I've seen for the film! And it's so beautiful!

There is apparently much love for Dean (and rightly so) going on here, so I'll refrain and simply get to the part where I say this is awesome :).

And silly ;).
