Mighty Mouse vs. Mickey Kitty Oyl
Just before Christmas, our weekly challenge was posted. By ‘our’ I mean a group of artists that I work with. This challenge, because it fell over the Christmas holiday was extended to a two week deadline. Which of course meant it also covered the New Year’s weekend. Needless to say, there wasn’t a lot of illustrations posted by our self imposed deadline – even with the extension. However, since it takes about 4.5 hours to travel to and from my Christmas destination, I had lots of time to think about my drawing.
The subject matter of this challenge was:
“Your Favorite cartoon character designed as a mech robot vs. 3 of your least favorite cartoon characters stitched together like frankenstien…Bonus points if you incorporate christmas into your design. You can also just do one or the other if you like…it does not have to be vs.”
So…I went back to my childhood. I used to love Mighty Mouse, so he would be the inspiration for my mech warrior.
As for my least favourite…I never understood the attraction of Hello Kitty, so there was my main character. I always felt that Mickey was kind of jerk to Donald Duck, so he was my second character. Finally, I decided on Olive Oyl as my third character, just because I always found her kind of annoying.
