The Smart Sister by tabbykat The Smart Sister by tabbykat
I saw the horrific Chipmunks trailer when I went to see Enchanted this weekend. My friends and I exchanged glances full of shock, and mutual concern. What have we done, I ask you?

Anyway, it made me hunt down clips from the old chipmunks movie, made of 80's and bad fashion and excellent animation. I felt better.

I stole my boyfriend's tablet long enough to doodle for a bit, since mind is kaput. My favorite Chippette came out of it. (Er.. a bit older. Obviously.)

Here's to the smart ones. <3

Nice work on Jeanette, I like the older look you gave her. I remember watching the cartoon with them and the chipmunks back in the 80's, god I'm old...

wow, the cipmunks! That has been so long ago that at first I didn't even realize who the girl in the picture was supposed to be, there was just something very familiar about her - and then I read the description and it was all clear. xD
She's my favourite too, and really cute in your style :)

WAAH~! i just watched this last week for the first time in YEARS! i forgot how incredible the animation, story, and songs were. haha, i loved the chipmunks and chipettes..i really liked how although jeanette was the smart one, she wasn't a complete introvert. i like the attitude they all had, and i looove "Girls Of Rock And Roll" XD i need to learn their little dance moves they do on the air balloon..
i just saw the trailer for the new movie last week, too, and although it looks kinda fun..it's not the chipmunks. it's..something.

She was always the hottest Chipette, haha!

But... she is human...

Wait, that is a good thing right? Why would I want to see a furry? OH GOD WHAT HAVE I BECOME???

I love this. lol. I KNEW there were female Chipmunks somewhere too! The CGI thing scares me, but the cartoons rock. Plus, apparently I am a chipmunk (ah, in jokes ftw), so it's especially cool for that reason.

She's adorable ^_^ Very recognizable as the 'smart one' or that other term I love 'bookish'

But look at you! you borrow a tablet for a short time and produce this? :faint: I love your art. :D

Question... (forgive me if I've asked before) what do you use? (program) and do you have a tute? or what technique do you use?

Jeanette was always adorable. My fave was Eleanor. So cute and chubby.

The Chipmunks trailer made me sad too :( When I heard it was CG, I pictured them like in the cartoon not actual size chipmunks :bleh:

I think... I'm going to go see the new movie. Matinee, of course. But I think I'm the only one of my friends who has the guts too. I'm really really REALLY hoping that they're just showing us the crap in the trailor and that the movie has the same heart that the series and the Chimpunk Adventure had.

The only thing that concerns me is that in the cartoon, they weren't exactly chipmunks so much as chimpunk-shaped children, you know? (Just like Mickey Mouse isn't exactly a mouse but a mouse-shaped human.) And in the movie, they clearly are chipmunks.

:shakes head: Anyway, I'll be sure to let people know if it's worth it.

Kinda reminds me of what Hollywood wanted to do to the film "adaptation" of Terry Pratchett's Mort.
"We like the idea of it, Mister Pratchett. But... could we take the Death angle out?"

Seriously.
