It's Been An Adventure, Mr. Fredricksen by OrangeCurl It's Been An Adventure, Mr. Fredricksen by OrangeCurl
I imagine when Russel is grown up, he'll release a balloon during any of his big life events so he feels Carl is there with him.


I'll leave this one without the watermark because it's been pretty popular. It's just shy of 40,000 notes on tumblr. Which I'm still shocked over, and can't believe at all.

Note: WOW thanks for the DD and all the fabulous compliments. People have mentioned wanting to see a companion piece to this, and I'd actually already drawn one and never posted it here. You can see it on my tumblr if you're interested: kristalbabich.tumblr.com/post/…

It's Been An Adventure, Mr. Fredricksen by OrangeCurl A fantastic Up fan art. Great idea imagining Russel all grown up. I especially like the shadow the balloon casts on his face. Its very nicely drawn. Well done ( Suggested by Ay-u and Featured by Ry-Spirit )

Good Lord. The feels in this piece are unimaginable. Not to mention the wonderful style you used, and the consistency in the shadow of the balloon on his face. Great job!

Oh thank god, its just a pink-tinted shadow. From the thumbnail, it looked like he had a bloody semicircular hole where the left half of his head should be.

I remember seeing this on Tumblr and I loved it! The only thing is that I remember another part of it.  The other part was the Carl, Ellie, and Doug were in the clouds and the balloon was floating up by them
