Calvin and Hobbes: Moving On by Zatransis Calvin and Hobbes: Moving On by Zatransis
Hey peoples!

When I started this pic as a sketch I thought I was brilliant. I thought the idea was fresh and original. How retarded is that? Once I started looking up reference I found a giant pile of art about Calvin when he grows up. AND... a lot of them involved a daughter. I decided that I didn't care and did this one up anyway.

I hope everyone enjoys this piece. There is some heat regarding the concept of a grown up Calvin and that he should always remain a child. But to me, that's like wishing your puppy never becomes a dog or your child never becomes an adult... it's selfish. So, I consider this image about letting go of things you hold dear so it, and you, can move on.

Peace and carrots,

M!

This is a very nice tribute, probably the best interpretation of an adult Calvin I've seen. I like how Hobbes normally appears as a toy with a straight face, but here he's smiling. It's as if Watterson's mystery of whether he's really alive truly never ends. I think Calvin still knows...

I adore it. I really do. 
I loved Calvin and Hobbes and still do to this day. I got The Authoritative Calvin and Hobbes and The Indispensable Calvin and Hobbes, literally inches away here on my bookshelf. 
It's a wonderful sketch, fresh, unique, and heartwarming. 
Peace and carrots,

Haha, I love it! It's very fun! I'm glad you decided to go ahead and make this piece. Regardless of preference, I think it is good to be able to look at things from a different angle like this. Even if someone thinks it's "wrong," we still gain perspective on whatever the subject is and hopefully even learn about ourselves as we examine our responses. I like it. His daughter is super cute and mischievous! I'm curious about what his wife is like and the family dynamic in your version of Calvin's grown up life. =)

You know, I think it most defiantly is.:) (Smile) 

After all what they have been through, along the line they became interested in each other and became a couple.

And Hobbes is enjoying his new companion! Seeing his daughter play like he did as a kid, I think Calvin can relate to his daughter very much, unlike his Parents who thought his behaviour was irrational and crazy.

There is a Swedish song about a child and the teddy bear he got from his dad when he turned four, how it was the best friend ever and and life was good.
But the years passed and the teddy was forgotten, the boy grew up and got married and had a baby girl. When she turned four, she got a present from her dad...

This reminds me so much of that song. Im going to go listen to it now and have a bit of misty eyes. *Tips hat* Thanks for reminding me of that song.

To be fair, there isn't much option for 'originality' anymore, so don't let others doing something keep you from doing it as well. And I'm sure that there are a bunch of pics out there that don't look as good as yours, so this qualifies as great.
