Abandoned Hog

This is one of my abandoned sketches for our Animal Farm week on Toon Club. I decided not to use it due to a few things that were bothering me. One - he looks too much like Runt from Disney's Chicken Little as a grumpy, old hog. Two - he's just standing there, and that's boring, and so is his pose. And three - pigs don't smoke.

It seems that I tend to draw an overabundance of pigs, bears, and seals. I should branch out, but I probably won't.

as long as the pigs make me laugh, and the bears eat kids... keep drawing them

Its been a long time since I read the book, but I seem to remember the pigs smoking pipes.

Nicely drawn.

By the way I think the pig draws a much closer resemblence to Dick Cheney, than that guy in Chicken little.

Maybe he was a lab pig, and got tested on the effects of smoking on lungs. When they released him, he was still an addict. that's why he's so mad, too.

pigs, bears, and seals, huh? Just for the sake of branching out... how about a tiger? or a great white shark?

oh! my mistake! you've already done all those!

But if you REALLY wanted an exercise in drawing something unusual.... how about anything from the island of madigascar? that whole place is just messed up.

I like his expression, and tiny hands and feet always crack me up. Nicely done Shane!
