The Flitterbick

Come on already! Let’s See Some Lumberjack Slaughtering Rocket Squirrels!

Ok going back to the ever popular lumberjack legends for this one, and I’m pretty sure you could simply draw this round’s hero as a dotted line, so let’s see if any of you lazy nerds play along!

The Flitterbick legend comes from the northern woods of the American midwest…. Technically it has never actually been seen standing still, so no one really knows what it looks like… but we do have some descriptions based on educated guesses.

here’s what you’re working with

  • Lives in the American Midwest
  • Roughly squirrel sized and shaped
  • Maybe it has flying squirrel style wings, maybe not
  • Flies so fast it becomes a blur to the naked eye
  • Collisions with flitterbicks are almost always fatal and leave little to no evidence beyond a widely scattered pile of death, gore and fur

Now sure, If you want to be cynical, there are things like fast flying birds and bugs that could probably explain the streaking blurs. And if you’ve ever seen what a cat does to a squirrel… well the exploded remains, those probably makes sense too… but tell that to the lumberjack with a supersonic squirrel bearing down on his face!!!

reminder

So there you go, odds are you know what squirrels look like. If you were ever a kid, odds are, you’ve already drawn lots of jet packs and dotted line projectiles. So channel that third grade you and get to doodling cause I’m a man with too many shirts and a want to laugh at some new drawings. You’ve got two weeks… well technically only one now! (now due midnight the evening of 10/12)!

Yessss! Dear squirrel that will haunt my dreams for years…. who’d of thunk combining bug and flying squirrel would be so freaking terrifying? I mean with that boring front end, can you imagine how quickly this guy would decimate my flower bulbs? Nicely played sir! and nice to see you back!

You know, I was pretty damn sure you’d be coming back with a Bullwinkle reference… Proves I know nothing! Look at the deadly grace! Like a falcon crossed with a panther only magical as hell!

I’m shooting for an audience of one this round… he likes space suits, the future… and his name rhymes with “pith” … given, to be truly effective, there should be at least one futuristic dome city in the distance … but come on?… doesn’t a fish bowl helmet sorta cover that?

awwww kid you gone an’ flew so fast you popped your eyeholes! My favorite part is that I cant quite tell if the hands are part of an “aghast” mouth covering reaction… or if that lil squirrely chin is propped up in em like a 5th grade school photo?

Apologies for the delay posting this lil scrawled and boxed beauty, been holding it for days trying to get into the servers. But back to this squirrel, do you think the heart in the tail was intentional? and lil bit can’t you tell its from an Australian, what with it looking all roo-y?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

You know I’m not entirely sure i have this one rotated correctly but dammit does context even matter when your talking supersonic, somersaulting, ‘sploding squirrels? And I’m so oddly entertained by the lil front paws being turned in in wicked witch fashion vs reaching out to soar! Also welcome back Malice!
