Very sad news today…
R.I.P Robin Williams - ‘Genie. You’re free.’

My only subjective critique of this beautiful picture is that I cried the moment I looked.

It's beautiful, heart wrenching, with the words mixed with the scene. Loving caring, and most of all emotional. The lines going off the sketch may not be clean or perfect, but they add more than what a clean picture would have looked like. Short and precise in both captions. And the fact that it's not colored allows me to fill in the scene however I want to, any place, but with the same feeling. A sweet goodbye, and it doesn't have to be forever.

Thank you so much for making this picture. Aladdin was the last movie my dad bought for me before he passed away. How Williams brought his scenes to life. I could see this in the movie. Rest in Peace, Robin Williams. No matter what you did you put your heart in it. And here's an artist who cared enough to put his passion into a piece in your passing. Thank you, very much David.

A day ago, I bawled when I heard of Robin Williams death, my childhood was wonderful because of him. This piece, though many similar on deviantart at the moment, made me tear immediately and reminded me of what a great actor/comedian he was. He will not be forgotten, and he is loved and admired by many. This art is testiment to those impacted by the creativity and craft that was the Genie himself. As pieces go, this art is fantastically sketched. I say with the upmost sincerity to this specific artist- “well done, your tribute is great and emotionally deep.

Robin Williams has been making me laugh since I was a small child, when Genie became my favorite Disney character, and as I grew older, I grew to love even more of his work.  I will always love and laugh at his movies, and I will always miss him.

I was stunned when I heard the news....I couldn't believe that he was in so much pain and no one except his closest friends noticed. He will continue to live on in those that wish to bring laughter to the world. He was my inspiration to be funny, a comic.

I can't look at this without crying all over again. The Genie was my favorite Disney character and with the death of Robin Williams, I feel like my childhood died with him. ;~;:( (Sad)

He was the most talented comedian we have ever known over the years. If he was still alive, he would be hired for future Aladdin sequels. But no, he died. But we will never forget him. His performances love within all of our hearts. But one thing we learned, is that we've never had a friend like him until now. If he were still alive (again), we would still be laughing.

Amazing job. 
Everywhere I turn, there Robin is, in tributes and news headlines and now Deviantart. I knew the website would immediately have stuff like this, but it doesn't make in any less sad. I cannot believe Mork, the Genie, Alan Parrish, and Elmer Fudd singing Fire is gone. I love you, Robin. No, I disagree! Heart
