They do look nice although I wouldn't be able to distinguish that it was classic winnie the pooh if you never mentioned it. They do look nice as a tiger and a bear though.

I think Pooh and piglet look really good, just like classic pooh. I sewed all the decore for my nephew's nursery...all classic pooh.
IMHO, the only thing I would change is maybe make Tigger a little thinner, Tiggers love to bounce. icon_wink.gif But I think his stripes are great! icon_smile.gif

pooh & piglet look great, just like classic WTP. i think tigger looks good too, just not much like tigger in my opinion

I love Piglet! Great job! Tigger is a little chubby, but still looks good. Pooh would be more identifiable with his red shirt. I know the shirt is more recent, but just a thought.

Exactly! its the red shirt..i think i am to used to the new animated WTP, when i look at these ones i just feel like there is something missing... lol and yes Tigger and been eating to much cake lol

I say just add the shirt! It really does distinguish him as Pooh not just any other bear!!!!! Also, If Tigger has not hardened, maybe you cn give him his curly, spring tail. That might take away from his excess girth without having to start over.

No shirt, cause classic Pooh does not have a shirt. I think they look just like the classic figures.

Ya I dont think i will add a shirt because the picture the customer gave me, Pooh bear doesnt have a shirt. I like the idea of a more curly tail tho. I might work a bit more on Tigger once I am home from work.

I think it would help Tigger look more like Tigger is he was in a more active, playful pose, like sitting up or getting ready to pounce or something.

The way you have them is the way the classics are. Classic Tigger does not have the same bouncy tail as the Tigger everyone is used to. I wouldn't change what you have, cause I'm assuming the client knows the differnce betweed regular Pooh & the classic Pooh characters. Thats why she asked for the classic. The classics are more reserved looking & a little on the plainer side. I think you did a great job & I love the way the classics look.

You are SO welcome. icon_biggrin.gif I just didn't want you to add traditional characteristics, cause you characters are SPOT ON for the classics, even you Tigger. thumbs_up.gif

They are great. Immediately identifiable as Classic Pooh characters. The colors are just perfect! Fantastic work, you should be proud.
