Alvin by TVsKyle Alvin by TVsKyle
I sketched this Alvin the other day, and :icondelia97: insisted I ink it so she can color it. Fair enough!

Drawn and inked by me traditionally, colored by Aron digitally.

2011 Bagdasarian

I remember when I was 4-7 I was OBSESSED with the chipmunks. Like, obsessed. My Mom took me to Walmart and I saw a shirt that had Alvin on it and I was like 'I NEED THAT SHIRT MOM BUY IT NOW DESU!1!!!11!!' and it was huge so my mom washed it and it shrunk :lol:

You're better at drawing Alvin than the actual character designers of the shows!

This actually looks like that mutated Alvin that Dr. Frankenstein turned Alvin into in revenge for his civilizing his wonderful monster. The toonified Alvin looked and acted weird , wreaking demented havoc all over , causing chaos & confusion ,like a mindless maniac ! One of the last films done before the studio shut down.

Still, the Chipmunk Adventure was an excellent swan song.

i have a question! do you think what they have done with the alvin and the chipmunks brand is good or bad?

TVsKyle Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2012  Professional Filmographer
What they have done with the brand is not for me, but that doesn't mean its bad. I'm an adult. I'm not the target audience. I do wish, however, that they'd put the Alvin Show out on DVD and keep Ross Bagdasarian's old music in print.

you see for me i never got to watch the alvin show i like the style it looks nice but this new thing that theyve done with it is just bad jokes and terrible things happening like you said you are an adult and are not the target audience neither am i but that dosnt mean i dont get dragged to the movies with my step brother and sister and watch rubbish movies that they pick anyway never mind im just venting i just wish that movies these days wernt all about graphics but wonderful storys and if they did both the combination of a great story and graphics then we have something good on our hands dont we? any movies you could recommend to me that you think are good?

Well, here's 5 because I could spend all day on this:
-Tintin rules. I was skeptical at first because of the creepy mo-cap, but it's an excellent, fun movie. A good roller coaster ride, though not particularly deep.
-Puss In Boots was really good. I don't care for the Shrek franchise at all. This, thankfully, has nothing to do with the Shrek franchise other than the fairy-tale characters.
-getting away from the most recent stuff, Emperor's New Groove was far better than it got credit for. It's a feature-length cartoony cartoon. They kept it simple with 4 main characters for a change, and they all got a chance to shine as a result.
-I don't actually know how old you are, but if you're 16 or older, check out Dead Leaves. Hiroyuki Imaishi is a brilliant animator/director who makes the most exaggerated anime ever. It's another style-over-substance choice, but I don't care.
-Now if it's substance you want, check out what Brad Bird did before The Incredibles and Ratatouille and check out the incredible Iron Giant.

Looks like Alvin after he got toonified by Dr. Frankenstein. (an unfinished - prob. abandoned - sequel to that story had horrific incidents of murder !)

That's the best drawing of Alvin but he totally needs an instrument that will dish out more punishment to those around him. Like maybe a clarinet with a broken reed or a tuba. :)

Now this is how the chipmunks should look, its more appealing than their horrible looking CG monstrosities that have been unleashed onto the world.

I agree with you. Although i have seen the first one, I didn't really like their new looks, and it's not just because they were in CGI or looking like gangstas.

There were a lot of references to the harmonica in the Alvin Show. I kinda forgot that it wasn't in other iterations.
