Calvin + Hobbes by RobinF Calvin + Hobbes by RobinF
Calvin and Hobbes is pretty damn awesome. <3 This is a request from my boyfriend, who wanted it as a card for his granddad, who really likes the comics. Not much more to it than that, 'cept that I did Hobbes as a real tiger because Bill Watterson's style completely eludes me. xD Tried my best on Calvin there, but it's still not right!

Tiger referenced from a bunch of photos on Google, but mostly this one: [link]

Characters are Bill Watterson's, obviously. :]

Awh, very nice! I love Calvin and Hobbes. You're right, the style is for some reason /very hard/ to emulate (I've tried) but I like realistic Hobbes. He looks so huggable!

Thanks a lot! Yeah, I think it's just the fact that Watterson must have drawn those characters thousands of times; it's hard to pick up that much charm in a day. :)
