Try to imagine all the smells from their descriptions. (The crazier the smell name, the better)
Have flashbacks to that one time four years ago when you sniffed through their whole collection at a store and got something for your home and then never used it because you got a cat soon after and oils are bad for kitty cats (and you love your kitty cat more than scented candles)
Browse through the pictures of your cat back at home, then return to browsing candles. You can almost smell them at this point
Get a few samplers. I mean come on, joy is about the small things, isn’t it? (Just remember about fire safety and the sanity of your housemates)
Get into a nostalgic mood for the rest of the day and stare out of your window for a while, listening to the howling autumn wind
I am really tired so it’s gonna be a quick one for today, but hey it’s fun to draw some character’s teeth once in a while XXD
So for info here: Sheiley is omnivorous and I really just wanted an excuse to draw 2 tongues Maria is usually too lazy to change her teeth back to human shape unless she has to, but she is omnivorous as well. Hazael is a vampire Paltin is strictly carnivorous Elaim is omnivorous but he is missing most of his teeth on the right, hence why we can’t see any (Nono I wasn’t just extra lazy and didn’t draw them) Semale is mostly herbivorous (Well her specie can’t eat meat but they have grown to consume a lot of dairy products and are therefore not exactly herbivorous but it’s close to)
I added Semale at the end cause I was like: That is a damn lot of sharp teeth…

The 31 Days of Disney Villainy Continues! I’m counting
down my Top 31 Favorite Villains from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ film
This rogue is Quickest Rat in the Race…but never say that to his face.
It won’t end as nicely as that rhyme.
Number 8 is…Professor Ratigan, from The Great Mouse Detective.
Remember how I said that Ursula’s status was arguable, among Disney Villains?
Well, that’s because this guy came first. Ratigan is basically the rodent
version of Professor Moriarty, forever embattled with his rival, detective
Basil of Baker Street – the Sherlock Holmes of Mousedom. In this particular
film, Ratigan kidnaps a toymaker, planning to use him as part of an elaborate
scheme to take over the kingdom, and eventually – you guessed it – the world.
So, what makes Professor Ratigan awesome? First of all: Vincent Price. Second
of all: Vincent Price. Third of all: VINCENT. PRICE. For those who don’t know,
Vincent Price is one of my favorite actors, and I’m pretty sure it was his work
as Ratigan that introduced me to his powerful, versatile, and mellifluous
voice. (I say “pretty sure” because there were at least three or four other
possible contenders there in my childhood, and I’m not sure which came first.)
Price named this as one of his favorite roles, and you can tell he’s having a
BLAST every second the character is onscreen. And, once again, the voice and
the character are totally in concert; as recognizable as Price is, you just
never feel that “behind the mic” quality I’ve mentioned. He’s just…right there!
He IS Ratigan, and Ratigan IS him! I think perhaps that’s why Ratigan doesn’t
get featured as often as other Disney Villains (that and the fact that “The
Great Mouse Detective” is a somewhat underrated feature, in my opinion): with
other villains, even if their voice actors are gone, dandy replacement actors
have been found to take on the mantles of the roles for various spin-offs. But
with an actor like Vincent Price, it’s almost impossible to find a perfect
voice impressionist who can handle that iconic sound and do it perfect justice.
(Lord knows Maurice LaMarche has tried though, recently…if they ever put
Ratigan in Kingdom Hearts, I vote using either him or archival audio for the
Price is not the only thing that’s great about Ratigan. As I said before, many
point to Ursula as the villain who really set the standard for how Great Disney
Villains work. I think several earlier villains had established the concept
before, though you could argue Ursula cemented it, simply because others would
follow her footsteps…BUT, I, personally, would say it was Ratigan who cemented
it. There was a one-film-gap between this and “The Little Mermaid,” and
considering the villain of “Oliver & Company” was, in my opinion, one of the
most BORING villains Disney has ever put out (in fact, in my opinion, if we’re
looking at only “The Great 58,” which is the focus of this countdown, he’s the
second worst Disney Villain of all time), you can guess which formula they
followed, in terms of how their bad guys worked. Ratigan, like Ursula, is equal
parts funny and fearsome. Also like Ursula, this Napoleon of Crime does have
ambitions of power, but he makes it VERY clear that the real reason he does
what he does is because he legitimately just enjoys doing terrible, horrible,
no-good, very bad things to people. Power is just a bonus, a means to an end.
On that note, I love how this character is arguably one of the nastiest and
most bloodthirsty of all Disney Villains – his song literally describes him
drowning widows and orphans, presumably just for fun, and that’s just the tip
of the iceberg – yet they actually manage to give him an edge of empathy. You
see, Ratigan does not like being reminded that he is, in fact, a rat; it’s
never directly stated in the film, but the implication is that he’s been
prejudiced because of his species. Rats are typically seen as dirty,
treacherous, sneaky, stupid creatures. Ratigan puts on the airs of a gentleman;
he has an eloquent vocabulary, a sense of charm and elegance to everything he
does, and dresses in fancy clothes that are very obviously too tight for his
(relatively, to a mouse) massive framework. He tries everything he can to deny
what he is and defy the stereotypes…yet, ironically, it’s his evil nature that
only proves him the perfect example of how nasty rats can be. This is even
evident in the climax of the picture, as Ratigan gives up the “battle of wits”
with his hated enemy in favor of brute force, and lets his inner animal rise to
the surface with terrifying intensity.
(Also, for those of you on Tumblr: Felicia. I think the influence she has on me
liking Ratigan, by extension, speaks for itself. That or I like her by
extension because of Ratigan; either way, I think you get it.)
Bottom line: aside from a couple of characters from “The Secret of NIMH” or “Redwall,”
I defy you to show me a rat quite as menacing as Professor Ratigan.
Tomorrow, the countdown continues with my 7th Favorite Disney
HINT: “Now, Here is a Riddle To Guess If You Can…What Makes a Monster, and What
Makes a Man?”
