Powerpuff Girls 15th Anniversary

The Powerpuff Girls is one of my favorite shows ever, so I am really excited to be a part of the 15th anniversary art tribute blog.

My piece is based on the Gang Green Gang, possibly my favorite villains in the series. Click the image above to get a bigger view, and please check out the other amazing pieces on the blog, which was organized by Chogrin.

On a related note, I've always loved when animated shows get their own movies because they amp everything up; like the animation, the effects, the music, the story, etc. The Powerpuff Girls Movie is one of my favorite examples of that, and really one of the only well-done examples I can think of from recent history, aside from maybe The Simpsons Movie. I love when they keep the essence of a show and add polish for the big screen, as opposed to making it CG and thinking that's enough. Not that I dislike CG, but I would love it if, for example, Underdog, Yogi Bear, and the upcoming Peabody and Sherman movie had been done in a polished hand-drawn version of the original shows.
