A recent commission for :iconlila89: of Rocky and Bullwinkle's arch nemesis', Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale. This was a particular treat to draw, since I love that cartoon so much.

I LOVE Boris and Natasha...not only were the cartoons brilliantly silly and entertaining for all ages, but their voice actors were masters.

I love this, also. :D The expressions, the bombs....awesome. :)

So cute! These two were my childhood heroes. I love how warped and yet functional their relationship is, and seeing them holding hands like this (despite the bombs) fills me with much glee.

I love Rocky and Bullwinkle too. So much so, I have all 5 seasons on DVD. So I hope that carries some weight when I say.

This is fantastic!! I do not believe you have changed the spirit of these characters by doing them in your style. I see touches that, though drawn different, still preserve the spirit of the original creativity.

Even though, in the series, most often their partnership appeared as rock solid. There were moments in which Boris and Natasha showed they could stab the other in the back. So I love the bombs behind their backs.

I think art and personality is true to the original creativity of the show. (this one's a fav)

Thank you! It's nice to meet another Rocky and Bullwinkle fan! The first few seasons are my favorites, for all the vitality and fun of the designs and animation, not to mention the great satirical gags!

Yes, with the entire collection at my disposal. It does seem like the team was running low on energy or something. The later shows are still fun to watch, just not inspirational fun. For I think the show became old hat and formula driven and they lost the newness of it all. (my best guess)

So I too find the earlier seasons more inspirational than later ones.

I like this. I also like how I knew the name of this before I even saw the title.

As always, any chance for another revival of this series should definitely fall into your creative hands for redesigning...in short, I likes 8-)

Sweet pic. I am a huge Rocky and Bullwinkle fan.

On a more embarrassing note, Natasha was my first crush...

Nothing embarrassing about that! Natasha was a good lookin' cartoon lady!

Natasha always did her best to put the "fatal" in "femme fatale." And Boris--well, he was Boris.

Good job!
