All the single ladies,
Now put your hands up!


A blend of the old school and the new school :D

I know most people consider the new movies an insult to the old cartoon, and I will admit they're pretty bad. But the fluffy animal lover in me adores seeing them as real little chipmunks, and I can appreciate the reimagining of the characters. I mean, why didn't they look much like chipmunks before?

Anyway, I guess this is my ideal blend of the two designs :XD:

This totally should've been the new art style.

It perfectly combines the clothing of the new version very well with the 80s cartoon version most of us love, with the added flare anthropomorphic flare they've added in the latest version. Only in your drawing their hair flows more naturally with their fury texture.

I don't know why some people hate the new ones. Must be their nostalgic childhoods talking. I've watched it as a kid during the 90's but I actually like these designs better. I'll admit now that I'm older the spark of the old show I felt as a kid is starting to ware away, probably because its a just for kids show which I no longer am. I like that they actually look like chipmunks now, just admit it the original designs look like giant gophers instead of chipmunks. I also like that they made Brittany a bit kinder and not as hard for others to be around and that Jeanette is no longer accident prone. Oh and last thing, I'm no particularly fond of Ms. Miller, she's annoying, so I'm actually kind of glad they didn't bring her back, if they do they seriously need to rehaul her character. Nice drawing by the way, though I thing you should have made their hair be part of their fur like the movies. So yeah I still have fond memories of them in the 90's when I was 8, it just doesn't have that same effect on me anymore. The movies I can still relate to because they're not just for kids movies.
