:) (Smile) Very nice done! Really!

 

However, I think it is a good thing that Calvin & Hobbes did not turn into a mass-media-merchandise, nor even just film adapted.

 

I agree with the basics of mr. Watterson’s beliefs of not commercializing his strip. A cartoon strip is, what’s being said, reckoned as a “lower artform”, and I personally think it’s because most people see it as an art-form that appears, but not necessarily always speaks, to a younger audience. I myself question comics as an “lower artform”. What is a low art? I know mr. Watterson has questioned the same thing, and I ALSO happen to know he actually made a reference to it in one of his Calvin & Hobbes strips once. If you haven’t read it, it is filed under the date of 20th July 1993  www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobb…

 

IF Calvin & Hobbes had turned into a mass-media product, I think, the strip would have turned out a lot less special. Of couse it is not something that I thought about when I was little. I even once questioned why there weren’t manufactured any Hobbes-dolls… But through time I began to go more into mr. Watterson’s beliefs and I think I am beginning to get it.

 

 I am glad that Watterson did what he did, and I find myself that IF I should happen to turn out the same, which I by the way find impossible to belife, I would probably do the same…

 

…But just to be clear as this Is just a fan-work: It’s really good. I’m always interested in Calvin & Hobbes artwork, even if it is done poorly. It’s an interesting style you have given the characters and I hope you would take the time to make more. Fact is, I have filed it under my favorites+fav.  

I don’t think I needed to write what I did, but I just FELT like it. I’m sorry for my long explanations, but I hope it will actually make some sence, not just for YOU, but also to those who ACTUALLY read the comments like I did…:D (Big Grin)

I've known about his view on things. I've known for many years now. I've read many articles about him. If you noticed, the date on this animation was nearly three years ago.
This was an animation project at university. It was not meant to become anything like any show or to disrespect Watterson's wishes, therefore I find it very inappropriate for you to have put this here. I appreciate that you enjoy my work, and that you took the time to look at it, but please refrain from writing comments this long in the future. Please put any and all analysis not relate to the specific work onto your own profile page rather than in a comment.

Ah yeah, I've heard about that animation. It was cancelled by Watterson himself since Calvin&Hobbes was mean to the selfchild and let us imagine the voices, colors and the movements...

My uncle actually just started drawing a Calvin and Hobbes inspired comic about his little boy and his stuffed shark, Sharkaloo.

I loved it! C&H is still one of my favorite comic series of all time, along with Peanuts and For Better or For Worse. The coolest thing about this, that is probably the closest to a C&H cartoon that I'm ever going to see - When I was a kid, I always wanted to see a C&H cartoon show, but it never happened. :aww:

Thanks for the memories! :tighthug: (oops! ^^; )

I kinda imagined his voice exactly like that. I thought you had one of your brother's help you or something... You had me fooled until I read the description ^^;

Domanda: che genere di programma usi per creare queste animazioni? E per un animazione corta (come questa) piú o meno quante diapositive ci vogliono? E come fai con le voci?? (mi riferisco anche al video di kics, e sono rimasta sorpresa nel sentire delle voci!)

I used flipbook for the animation, though that's a pricy program. I use the one at my university.
As for the rest of your question... ^^; I kind of explained that in the youtube description. Read that, please

Hugged virtually by one of my biggest idols?...Best day ever!/)030(\

No problem!:blush::huggle:

Another thing(geez,please don't feel like I'm spamming you),the first thing that got me into your work was your fan art of Rocky,the flying squirrel.I was obcessed with him A LOT when I was a kid,and I still believe his is one of the best cartoon chracters ever,period.I just have a bond I can't really explain with him.Funny thing is,I got to know him by the movie,but man,do I hate the movie.And I hate Bullwinkle so much.

...Why am I even telling you this?Oh well,guess I just can't believe I'm TALKING TO THE BEST PERSON EVER!:iconeeeeeplz:

:iconglompageplz: He was my childhood hero through middle school. And he still is <333 I learned about him through the movie too, and then my dad introduced me to the show, but even though the movie is incredibly corny, it's still one of my reserved favorites for sad days and laughs. The animation part of it was fabulous. I don't hate Bullwinkle, but he does sometimes get a bit annoying XD

OH GOD THE LOVE I CAN FEEL IT THROUGH THE SCREEN!!!8D THIS REALLY IS TEH BEST DAY EVER!!!:iconredbullglompplz:

SAME HERE,ROCKY IS PROBABLY THE BEST CARTOON CHARACTER I'VE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE:heart:

Ehehe,the movie is my number 1 guilty pleasure!I know it's totally crap,but if it's on TV,I'll watch it just for Rocky!;)

I thought the animation was pretty good =3 I watched the show recenlty and honestly kinda prefered the movie XD

Yeah,he's alright,I guess,but I'm not a fan of him.

Still,made a review of the movie(and show,later on),but you probably can't check it out because it's divided in parts and kinda big ^^;

...And I think sooner or later we're gonna have a fight between you and me discussing which of us loves Rocky more :XD:
