Can you believe that they are going to be coming out with another Madagascar movie which will make it part three in 2012? The great thing about this Madagascar 3 movie, is the fact that all the same voice actors are coming back for another crazy party. When I learned of this awesome news I had to check to make sure I had the four main characters that always stuck together in both one and two. Come to find out, I am missing a lesson on "how to draw Gloria from Madagascar", step by step. Since I haven’t submitted her yet, that is what you will be learning right now. Gloria is voiced by Jada Pinkett Smith, and has been since the characters first start in Madagascar. Ben Stiller is also coming back to be the voice actor of Alex the lion, the subtly funny David Schwimmer is coming back as the voice of Melman the giraffe, and Chris Rock returns to give up his voice talents of Marty the zebra. All four characters are what make the movies watchable. Even though part one was the best, Escape to Africa was just as good too. There is also a new voice actor that will be providing some of his skills and that is the sometimes serious, but courageous Sacha Baron Cohen, you may also know him as Bruno or Borat. For those of you that followed the first two movies, you should already know that Gloria is a stern hippo that has no problem with saying what’s on her mind. She will give it to you straight, but she is also sometimes blinded as well. For a long while she had no idea the Melman was in love with her until the moment came where he told Gloria how he felt as he progressed forward to his death. Of course once she found out how Melman felt, she realized that she too had feelings for him as well. I had fun drawing this character because she is full of life and always has a bright expression on her face. I think you will have a blast learning "how to draw Gloria the hippo" as you follow the steps and read the easy instructions. I will return in a bit, so don’t have a fit. Adios amigos!
