This struck a chord with me
It's easy from the outside to see it as reg Calvin and Hobbes and 100 acre woods, but when you're in the schoolyard with all the other kids in that instinctively formed circle, even the nice kid and the weird kid nobody likes measure themselves up

I saw the colored one on epic win and had to hunt around a bit to find the original artist. Hi. ;)

Do YOU have a final colored version? We'd all love to see the final. :)

It was never meant to be colored. The final version is a large pencil rendering.

I would say this is one of the strangest, most abstract pieces of artwork that I have ever witnessed on deviantART. Never before have I actually considered Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh, Calvin, and Hobbes all in one thought. Now that I have been made aware of the idea through the terrific artwork, I am awestruck at its brilliance. Everything, from the other children appearing to take sides, to the fact that Christopher and Calvin retain their personalities; Calvin being aggressive and pointing out his foes to Hobbes, while Chris remains passive, drives my imagination up the wall in utterly childish glee.

Thank you for this amazing picture. Have you any intentions of posting the finished product?

Somehow, it doesn't surprise me that Calvin has a tomboy on his side. =P I don't think he'd be able to stand letting any other kind of girl into his group.

'Course, she probably pounded his face into the ground first. Y'know how Calvin is with girls. =P

It took me awhile to figure out that it wasn't Pooh vs Tigger (I didn't see Calvin right off), but I think the sudden revelation of Hobbes really makes the picture.

Of course I love Hobbes, but I can't say Pooh-bear doesn't strike a chord. Don't fight... nevermind, get bloody. Wreak havoc. $ on Hobbes; he is willing to beat people up (Calvin), and Pooh rips by just stretching.

Cannot wait to see it finished! And the aftermath (jk).
