Lumpjaw by name, villain by fame


When out of his lair came the third bear, with murder in his eyes.
Who knows who this tough guy is?

Oooo. Ooo. I know. I know. Pick me. I wont tell... Our girls make us watch this about once a week if not more. This turned out so good Seth! I love how warm and fuzzy the color feels of this even though he IS such a villain.

Bongo? You have a cool technique, I really like the design of the hands/fingers. Nice job!

Yeesh, I am behind on my homework because I have no idea. I do love the water-colory feel to the colors, there is even a paper texture in there, I think. Wonderful motion and expression :)

This is one of my favorite cartoons ever. I love Lumpjaw's entrance in the film... walking through the forest and crushing trees in his path. The way he up-roots them just by walking through tem is classic. I love it, Seth... good choice.

I love the waterfall scene and it makes me laugh just thinking about how hard YOU laughed as Lumpjaw tries to grab Bongo with the eletric sound effect.

I appreciate most the loving care that goes into each of your posts Seth. Every daub of color is placed just so. Gotta love the big lug. He'd be huggable if he wasn't such a big jerk. Nice choice in villains. Great movie too-- is it still possible to get a copy of this movie? Such a classic.

Seth... Love the art style and the character choice! Of course, if I were a bear, I would have said that with a slap. Also, it is soooo nice to have you posting again, and I think Monster House was better than Happy Feet!

Good heavens! Some people need to get slapped! Here's the skinny on this tough guy: He's Lumpjaw from the Bongo section of "Fun and Fancy Free", which also includes Mickey and the Beanstalk. It is currently available as Fun and Fancy Free, and is definitely one of those titles you should own if you are in the animation biz. Hope that is helpful!

Bongo! Hooray! You got it! This one's definitely a classic in my book, and the waterfall scene is my favorite part with Lumpjaw.

I'm really diggin this background Seth...oh, hey! there's a bear too! I lik'em.

My favorite part is walking through the trees as they break on both sides. Most excellent villain.

I bought Monster House. I didn't buy Happy Feet. Next time try to please the left with a political message and you'll win.

I hadn't seen this one... don't worry, Adrian made me feel bad enough.

I do enjoy the drawing all the same, I love the hands as well, and the expression is great!
