What Happens After the Capture?

I love the old Bugs Bunny cartoons in which Bugs pretends to be dead, prompting Elmer Fudd to completely change his attitudes toward rabbit hunting. Since last week's Toon Club topic was "Swamp Critters", I decided to pay homage to this classic gag with a critter known for playing dead.

It occurs to me now, however, that he might be TOO good of an actor.

You only claim that he's "playing" dead so your website won't have to take a PG-13 rating. He's totally dead... and though the gator may cry while he does it, he's about to eat the little guy. Why couldn't you have just showed the two of them getting married? Great drawing, Adrian - I loves it!

Kevin Keele said...

Oh man, this drawing is so cool! Great job, Adrian!

Joe said...

That expresion is hillarious.

LOVE the Gater and DIG the Possum...no really it's the only way to "cover the stink". (We should know eh) We you where describing this to me at the reunion I thought it would be cool, but this rocks! BER

I simply love it. Those expressions are awesome, and I too like the lighting.

I love the look on the Crocodile's face! He is very cute! I hope he doesn't eat the possum anyway.

Jason said...

Are those crocodile tears? Great BG and lighting. Simply adds more to the mood. The next scene shows the possum hopping up to do a Matrix kung-fu move on the croc, yeah? Just joshin'. Keep it up, this stuff is great.

LudaChristian said...

I saw a cat laying like this on the road when I was a child. Something about the eyes...just like how you've drawn- It scarred me. Thank you for bringing up such a sensitive subject.
Great work here! You create great expression in your characters and I like the colours! :)
