Re: Mystery of the Platypus Solved!


So here's my first entry for this week's derby! And I'm liking the end result. And I hope you do too.

Basically, Mr. Duck is upset because he suspects the new hatchling belongs to the milkman, Mr. Beaver.

Give me a vote if you like it! Thanks!

Edit: I've resubbed. Feel free to check out the new version and give it a vote too.

I didn't even know there was a gopher in Winnie the Pooh. But I was never really into Winnie and the Pooh.

They're both marmuts... That's why they look alike. How else would you draw a beaver? Like this maybe?

Geesh! I'm really tired of arguing about this. The similarity between the two beavers is purely coincidental. What else can I say? But if you still think these two beavers are too similar, then my design could easily pass as a parody because I don't recall the beaver being a milkman in any movie.

Thanks for all of the support everyone. I'm really happy so many people liked my design enough to vote for it. My resub of this design surpasses my record high of 125 votes. Let's keep the votes coming. Thanks again!
