View Full Version : Grumpy Old Bird - A cartoon character I made up!

So here's the story of the Grumpy Old Bird:

One day, I was sitting in Maths class, and I began doodling on a piece of paper. I drew a little bird with a long beak, and it was happy. But the teacher saw me and told me to put the paper away. I got grumpy and mad, and accidently put a line through the little bird's eyes. It looked okay, so I erased the top of its eyes. It looked grumpy!
So today, I started doodling on AR3 and came up with the same bird, but on a much bigger - and grumpier - scale!
Here we go:

An excellent character, just waited for you to do funny things with him! He wants places to go, and adventures to have, all while being grumpy!

Hey weeun this is an excellent little character and definitely looks on the grumpy side! This style reminds me of some of the characters in Mo Willems children's books. Here is a link (http://www.mowillems.com/) so you can see what I'm talking about. Great job!:)

Oh, Weeun, you are such a wonderful delight to have in this forum! Not only with your wonderful artwork but also with your storytelling and charming conversation! When I see a posting of yours, I can't wait to open it up and be happy and so well entertained!!! Your parents should be proud and thankful that you live so far away from me so I can't easily come and kidnap you and raise you as my own!!! But then again, my husband's family is from Scotland so who knows....you may find me knocking at your door with my Scottish husband in tow!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D
