Happy Tree Friends: KA-POW!


A new HAPPY TREE FRIENDS short from the gang at Ghostbot that I did character layout for is now online. Working from cool new re-designs of HTF's super-squirrel Splendid by Roque Ballesteros, I had the lucky assignment of drawing all the cool action poses that went into this super-powered beatdown. Here's a sampling:

Sweet designs Chris. It still feels like Happy Tree Friends but has far more breathe in the designs now. I've been really digging where Ghostbot has been taking Happy Tree Friends.

Happy Blog-Aniver....whatever you want to call it!

Alina Chau said...
