The Only Weakness by rain1940 The Only Weakness by rain1940
I had this vision in my head right after watching Toy Story of Terror for the first time.
The special was pretty intense and I'm sure some of those experiences have affected the toys following night(s).
While Jessie was being able to somewhat defeat her fears and managed to save not just herself but all the others, Buzz was trapped behind the glass. He had to watch Jessie being attacked by iguana, watch her struggle with it, then at the end watch her being sealed in a BOX to be sent god knows where and all of this time he was unable to help her. He couldn't protect her. And then there was a massive chance of losing her maybe forever... 
These events most have been haunting him in his dreams. But when he suddenly wakes up from those nightmares Jessie is always there. She lets him rest his head on her soft little body while he wraps his arms around her.

Some of the reasons why it took me 2 months to complete this picture was the fact that these two has the craziest and most confusing proportions ever, and it's still pretty difficult for me to put them together so close (while making them look somewhat comfortable) because of Buzz's bulky upper body...
Speaking of their proportions and stuff, I love the contrast between their designs: every part that is big and/or bulky on Buzz is small and/or thin on Jessie.
I think it's utterly adorable. :aww:

I absolutely love Buzz's glow and all the reflections and shadows. You never fail to amaze all of your watchers and fans :)

Oh my word. Your art simply amazes me! You have the best illustrations of Buzz and Jessie that I have seen out there. And I have been looking very ardently. I love this couple so much and you capture their characters so well!! Plus, probably the thing that amazes me the most, is that though their proportions are CRAZY, you manage to make it work and it not look awkward, but you actually make it look that much sweeter!! Please keep it up! And I hope to goodness they make more shorts like the Terror one. Amazing.

Still ticks me off that Woody didn't go to help . The writers should have keep in mind he was still around .
JDfaeries Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Yes. I really REALLY... no for real.. REALLY love Buzz and Jessie. In my top five Disney couples for sure. But I absolutely love Woody, too. I love who he is, how he takes care of his group, how he's the leader with no thanks and how he really does love Buzz and Jessie like a brother and sister. It's awesome and I hope the writers don't forget about him and his dependability. Because Woody would never give up on them. :)

That's true as hell . But even with this big plothole, I still think it was a good Halloween short . And yes, back to  Jessie and Buzz, I really liked how they were portrayed in this, with Buzz caring for Jessie and all .  They're doing something good with these two, even if the way they get together in Toy Story 3 is kind of lousy .

Honestly, I love they Toy Story franchise. Great casting, good plots, and some wonderful characters. This artwork... I love it! I admit it... I am a Buzz/Jessie fan, but come on, eho doesn't love those guys. So, Pixar keep doing those specials and I can't wait to see what the feature holds to our beloved characters.

Annyira király ahogy a foszforeszkálást ábrázolod!

Köszi. Igazából maguk foszforeszkáló részek ábrázolása nevetségesen egyszerű, szemben a megvilágított felületekkel, amikkel sokat lehet szívni: pl. ha nem a megfelelő helyre teszed a fényeket totál eltorzíthatja a formákat...

Whenever I see your drawings of Buzz and Jessie in the dark, I forget that you have to draw and color the picture with buzz's glow lighting in mind.  I always forget!  It looks so real!!   So beautiful!!

Beautiful as always, and worth the wait!  :heart:  You know, I heard in one of the interviews before TSoT aired that it would deal with more than one toy's fears, and I think it's pretty clear that Buzz's fears were explored in it as well, with him always being so concerned about Jessie's safety.  It's all over his face and his body language the entire time.  And the emotion in this is a perfect follow-up to that!  :aww:

Alice, I didn't plan on having tears in my eyes today but damn, this is so beautiful and heartwarming and breaking at the same time. I think their positions and body proportions are fine and the way he's holding her is adorable. :aww: Like "Never letting you go." And Jessie is just so content with it. "That's fine with me Space toy." :)

Nice work on this one. :)
