Derby #125: Birds

Dodo Baron

This is great execution. The addition of the Beagle's feet makes this seem like a parody and I don't see the commentary. I'd resubmit without the reference to a popular comic icon.

Everyone knows Dodos can't fly - heck, even they know! But still, that doesn't make them want to do it any less.
This lucky Dodo knew a guy who knew a guy who was friends with a dog that knew how to fly.

I really like the idea... (love snoopy!) - maybe consider taking out Snoopy's feet though... the context should be obvious.

(well... unless the image is that the dodo knocked snoopy out - if it is, I apologize for being dense.)

I did try the design without the feet but it just didn't feel right, so I put it back in.

I had thought about the dodo knocking out snoopy earlier but... for all intents and purposes, it is open to interpretation haha :D

Maybe it was a friendly gesture or a hostile takeover of the little doghouse. xD

Glad you like it, thanks for commenting

Re: Dodo Baron


This is a cute idea, but it seems a little too close to the Snoopy flying on his doghouse scene...

I thought the dodo looks like Berkley Breathed's Opus, and couldn't figure out what he was supposed to be...oops.

The connection is obvious, but red doghouses are not copyrighted (Clifford had one too).

Though to be honest, at first I thought, why is Snoopy brown? Wait.... Ah!

And I like Snoopy's feet, they are an added hint for slow people like me ;)

Re: Dodo Baron


Thanks for all the comments

As for it looking like the scene in Snoopy, yes, it does but it doesn't really break any copyright or anything like that. :]

I'm glad for the responses, specially by folks whose work I really enjoy, like walmazan. This is really nice to hear (read?)
