INKtober 2020 – Day 17 – Buttercup from the Powerpuff Girls
I want to draw the Powerpuff Girls over the next few days. I do not want to use the traditional style because I am using INKtober to showcase the way I draw… and how I interoperate other cartoon characters. I made the body bigger to work better for action sequences. I guess, my vision of the Powerpuff Girls has them aged up about three more years. One quick note, my fine pen broke when pulling a line in her eye. Totally screwed up the drawing. That is why I went with the dark look under the eyes… I was attempting to correct the error. The result is a darker looking character.
Back when I was working in the Toy Industry, my company was looking for a license for a new musical toy. My buddy Chris and I tried to convince our bosses to grab up a Cartoon Network License and use the Powerpuff Girls for this amazingly cool new toy. Our bosses were a bit out of touch and went with a license of a New York City DJ who had recently made an appearance on MTV. Chris and I knew the kids were were targeting were NOT watching MTV. Kids at that age were watching Cartoon Network. The toy bombed and the failure lead to our toy company going out of business. I wish to this day that I put up a fight for a better license. At that time with the company, if you were not a “yes man”, you ended up being an “unemployed man”. In this case I ended up being and “unemployed man” either way.
