Rest in Peace Robin Williams by kylgrv Rest in Peace Robin Williams by kylgrv
Today, the world lost one it's greatest comedians ever: Robin Williams.  This guy, one that has made us laugh for years, passed away from apparent suicide.  This news saddened me, like how it saddened some of my good friends on the internet.  This drawing is one that I dedicate strongly to the legendary comedian.  He may be gone, but his memory and legacy will live on forever.

I know this guy has starred in several live action films, like "Jumanji," "Dead Poet Society," and "Mrs. Doubtfire" to name a few, but he also starred in some animated roles, such as in "Happy Feet," as Ramon and Lovelace, and "Ferngully: The Last Rainforest" as Batty Koda," but to me, the role that stood out to me the most was his role in "Aladdin" as the Genie.  Those characters are in this picture, and they are joined by Link from "The Legend of Zelda."  I learned that Robin was a fan of that video game franchise and he even named one of his daughters after Princess Zelda.  That's incredible.

Robin Williams...you were a fantastic person, an incredible comedian, and a lovable voice actor.  The world had never had a friend like you.  May you rest in peace.

Robin was a fan of the games, and he named one of his daughters after Zelda.  That's why I included Link.

Looks like we now have Dan Castlenetta to do Genie's voice.

But Robin will always be remembered.

He didn't voice Link.  I added him to the picture because Robin was a fan of the "Legend of Zelda" games.
