Bumble


The current Avalanche blog theme is Snow Monster. I decided to depict an encounter (not included in the show) between Yukon Cornelius and Bumble from "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer." I translated the characters into my own style, but left the mountains in the background essentially the same as they are in the movie. It may end up looking a little inconsistent but I like it for some reason. Hope you like it too.

Digging this one. great colors and the design of the bumble is awesome. I love the untouched snow between them just waiting to be thrashed.

Turely outstading! I love it much, much love. I'm going to need an art lesson from you some time. I like the mountains too by the way.

Sweet! (Though you may have nearly stolen my idea)Your getting really good with the colors. Looks like the fight that was in the movie though.
But it worries me, where would all the snow monsters go if there were no snow because of global warming? I turned out the lights.

how does Kevin Keel still blow me away after all these years? You Rock Kev. This picture really is awesome, and I think the mountains look like they fit in well enough to work, so keep it up Kev.

It reminds me of the Matterhorn at Disneyland, but that could just be that I have Disneyland on my mind pretty much all the time! I can't wait to go! Anyway, the picture looks great! I love the way you did the mouth!
