I made this short about 5 years ago. Weekend Kids is supposed to be relaxing for all of us, so instead of drawing something new today, I’m posting this old chestnut because I’ll bet most of you have never seen it. It counts as kid-related because these lovable Hundred Acre Woods characters are favorites with kids everywhere.
Some viewers outside of the US may not hear the soundtrack due to copyright issues on the music. In that case, just hum something catchy.
This is Part 4 of the Piglet Gets His Face Punched In series. I’ll post the sequel tomorrow. Part Six is in development. What happened to Parts 1-3? They are so obscure they almost don’t exist, so hipsters would love them.
As I wrote in yesterday’s entry, during the summer months when I have more time I’m going to start posting on Saturdays and Sundays. Again, the posts can be anything. I want it to be fun, and it’s really just for the folks who might pop by to see what’s happenin,’ and the hardcore fans. Missing the weekend posts won’t matter if you are strictly following the comics from the Mister G Kids world. They’re just for fun!
So this is my first one, and I figured, what the heck, I would show you what I worked on yesterday to do Kitten Kids.
I wanted the kitties to be cute, but also to look like they belong in the world of MGK. I noticed that lots of kiitten drawings feature huge eyes. Eyes are small and black in MGK, so I wanted to find a way to make that work. Freakishly large eyes were scaring me when I drew them.
For Elizabeth, the reference point was the drawing of a kitten in my old post Kitten that tons of people really liked. That particular kitten has solid-colored eyes, without the white part. So I wanted to achieve that again. You’ll note that Tommy has black eyes, but his fur color suggests white around his eyes, without explicitly drawing them. I like how they turned out. Tommy looks a little bit like Yoda, but I’m ok with that, haha!
Lol, Hello Kitty was in there partly as a joke, but I did like how her head is huge and her eyes are little, so it was a reference point too.
