More Pride ducks! Saw a post going around today about Scrooge being bisexual, and since that’s been my headcanon for the longest time, I had to draw something. Apologies it’s not fully colored like the rest, today has been A Day and I don’t have the concentration to carry it on through. Still though, had to contribute a confident old man, especially during Pride month itself o/
There’s a party (party), a party today A once a year occasion! (x)
I’M SORRY THIS IS POSTING SO LATE TODAY. BUT HAPPY BIRTHDAY @tricia-morvill! You are so incredibly sweet and talented, I’m really glad I’ve met you, and I hope you’ve had a wonderful day and an amazing year! Here’s a fancy Scrooge conducting birthday music ♪
With as much as I’m into mermaids, it’s astounding I haven’t done anything for Mermay yet. So, have a mer-duck! With some due inspiration credit to @demona-silverwing‘s own Mer Scrooge in general and for the visual of the coat staying, because I really liked that. The tail is based on a real fish species, the haddock, which is found (among other places) in the North Sea around Scotland, because I think I’m funny ;D
I drew some Pride ducks using my versions of the adult nephews for an AU I got, which I’ve shown drawings for from time to time. Huey and Louie were drawn last night, and Dewey/PK 2.0 was earlier today, as sleepiness prevented me from drawing him at the same time as his brothers.
Today’s mood dictated drawing Scrooge in the rain, so here it is. Made while listening to the myNoise Distant Thunder soundscape.
A sad headcanon to go with it, that’s not really supported in canon (but that’s the fun of these things, isn’t it ;P )– You ever stop to think about how much being Scrooge McDuck just might get to him? He’s not one to stop and reflect on himself very often, but there are times when it does, and I wonder if in those times, if the weight of everything ever comes up. He’s been on the top for so long, that The Richest Duck in the World is practically his identity now. Bringing the clan glory, being the last of the clan and all the pressures that comes with that. And it’s arguable he achieved the glory long ago, but staying on top is about all he knows now.
Coupled with the stresses of competition, attention, age, and health, there are times where it’s debatable if it’s even worth it anymore. Everyone knows him as The Richest, but who can really know him as Scrooge?
And the funny thing is, with the times he’s lost his way, falling into spite and bitterness, pettiness, things so far from the good heart he has…. Does Scrooge even know Scrooge anymore…
Born of a desire to draw Scrooge and Goldie dancing together (/distant strings of “Shut Up and Dance”). I kinda meshed together a couple of Goldie’s different looks, and I’m not sure it works but the whole thing came out so well otherwise that I just can’t argue.
