Winnie the Pooh and China 2 by Turtle-Arts Winnie the Pooh and China 2 by Turtle-Arts
So, after many years I finally got around to redoing this old pic of mine- fav.me/d2ij4fz (Ugh, this image is embarrassingly old) It'd been on my list of things I've wanted to do for ages now, but I never got around to it. Until a few days ago when a client approached me with a very rush job and booboopadoo, suddenly I have an updated version of the image. XD I tried to keep them looking like the ones from the old image, just with a fresher look and more accurate clothing. Which by the way, I painted all of the patterning in this image- no pre-made stuff, and man that was a butt. Asian stuff... seriously. Also, as a little treat for this image's revival, I added the heffalump after doing a little research and figuring out that there are indeed elephants native to China. Aww yeah. XD

For those of you who weren't around when I did this original image (four years ago... ugh) let me explain.  I had this idea one day to do all of the Winnie the Pooh characters as animals native to China because bridging cultural gaps is fun. lol! The animals are as follows:
Pooh Bear: Giant Panda
Gopher: Bamboo Rat
Tigger: Civet Cat (I know there are tigers in China, but I decided to shake it up a bit)
Kanga and Roo: Pangolins
Rabbit: Jerboa
Eeyore: Yak
Piglet: Tree Shrew
Owl: Black Shouldered Kite
And the Heffalump as an Asiatic Elephant. :nod:

So yeah, I hope you guys enjoy this little reboot! And consider this as my "Draw this again" meme finally filled out. XD

It's a good one! Pretty sure Tigger tells them a story about heffalumps and everyone except Kanga and Roo go into the forest to hunt heffalumps so they'll stop subliminally terrorising them, and Roo can't come because he's a kid, but he goes anyway and they think he got kidnapped and BLAH BLAH BLAH.

Yeah, I guess just after a certain age I stopped watching Pooh Bear movies. But I still have Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and Pooh's Grand Adventure. They're my favorites. :>
