belphegor1982: (black and white me)
I promised I'd post again when I have more stuff to post, so here I am :o)

A few random expressions. I drew Peppone thinking of a scene in a story called "A Poacher's Penance" ("In piedi e seduti", in Italian, meaning "Standing and Sitting"), but I'm not saying why he has that second expression. Spoilers ;) (on DA here)

I think my black markers are starting to hate me... )

For the next one I tried to draw them a few years older, and for now it's the only drawing where they're smoking their usual Toscano cigar. Don Camillo only seems to smoke half-cigars, but they probably start whole at some point :D (on DA here.)

To the same tree )

“We’ll let you choose the place where you are to be hanged,” jeered Peppone.
“I can tell you that right now,” retorted Don Camillo. “Right beside you, Comrade...” (from
Comrade Don Camillo)

Y'know, for all that those two often promise that the other will be hanged “when we take over”/“when we get rid of you lot”, they couldn’t live without one another. And they know it ;o)

The next one has a long explanation, which I'm also putting under a cut. It's one of my favourite moments in the fourth film (Don Camillo Monsignore... Ma non troppo). Still going for my mental image of Don Camillo rather than Fernandel, although I tried to really get Gino Cervi's expression on "my" Peppone's face. (DA page here.)

The bell )

In the films, there are two funerals (the old schoolmistress in the first one, and the one I mentioned under the previous cut), and both times, Peppone cries. And it's never presented as ridiculous or unmanly or played for laughs :')

Okay, one last drawing, again from the movies - this time the second one, which is probably my favourite of the bunch (with the first one). (DA version here.)

Honey from Marxist bees )

“What did you feed your bees this winter, anyway? The works of Karl Marx?”
“I didn’t even need to feed them all winter. I just repeated your last sermon, and then - wham. They slept.”


Don Camillo is laid up with a fever, so naturally Peppone stops by with hot camomile tea and honey from his own bees (and a favour he needs), and gives him the latest news from the village. The dialogue is straight from the film, too, gentle snark and all.

Those two, I swear /:o)
