Hi Helen! by Katie-W Hi Helen! by Katie-W
RIP Robin Williams.  
Batty Koda was a character he voiced in a movie-that-doesn't-hold-up-so-great called Ferngully: The Last Rainforest. The Genie from Aladdin is probably his best animated role... but for some reason when a wee little girl named Katie saw this movie in the theater, she thought this bizarre bat was the best and drew him all the time... So I figured it was appropriate that I drew something quick of him tonight.  I forgot how much fun he was to draw.

Like many, I'm saddened and shocked by Robin Williams death... especially with the way it happened.  But depression is a terrible illness and can take hold of anyone.  I feel like there a big empty space in my childhood now, but at least I have a lot of fond memories and I'm thankful for that.  He left one hell of a legacy behind.

I can't. I just can't. This was my all time favorite character (next to Ms. Doubtfire) that Williams voiced, and my house has so many of his phrases in our regular vernacular. I love this so so so so much.

Rap like an animal, but I'm a MAMMAAAALLLL....

Man, I hear ya. I was obsessed with Batty as a kid. I even would pretend to be him on the playground, haha.

Between Batty and the Genie, and all his other countless roles, Robin Williams dominated my childhood and he will be dearly missed. I'm also from the Bay Area and his close connections to this place makes the loss hurt all the more.

This is a wonderful tribute, by the way. You really captured Batty's character. C:

Batty Koda said things that characters in today's TV shows/movies would never be able to get away with XD

Super awesome tribute :heart:
