Update of [link]
Decide to do some dialogue with this one. Please let it be known that for the most part, Hippo speaks in either grunts and growls, and that Carla is able to understand and translate
*Over at teh gym....*
Carla: Well, that's interesting. I never thought I'd see you with a tan.
Hippo: *nods* Ruuuuuuuuh..... Grah...
Carla: What's that, it's temporary?
Hippo: *nods* Guuuuh.... Rah-rah?
Carla: You know, I was about to check on him, myself. Let's go look...
*Carla and Hippo head over to an open area of the gym. There they find Raven at work with the jumprope*
Carla: Hey there, Raven.
Raven: Oh, hello, you two.
Carla: How goes it?
Raven: Pretty good... *sees Hippo* Did you get a tan, Hippo?
*hippo nods and grunts*
Carla: He said it's temporary.
Raven: Well, it looks pretty good. So, what brings you two over?
Carla: We just came to check on you. It has been a couple weeks you started...
Raven: How could I forget? You floored me like a pile driver, back then.
Carla: Heh. Well, let's see... *glances over Raven for a bit.* You've built a lot of muscle since then... I did'nt think you'd make those kind of improvements.
Hippo: *nods* Gruh-huh....
Raven: Well, I did start a bit before you guys offered to help me.
Carla: *To Hippo* Pretty good, do think he might be ready for 'that?'
Hippo: Grh..... Gruah ...
Carla: You think so, huh? This could be fun.
Raven: Now what's got you two whispering?
Carla: Seeing the progress you've made, we're thinking it's time to take your training up a notch.
Raven: What did you have in mind?
Hippo: Gree... hee... hee... hee..
Carla: Oh, you'll find out. Question is, are you up for it?
Raven: If you guys think I'm ready, let's have at it...
It's been a while since I did Hippo, so I thought about doing another draft, but decided to put in the 'temporary tan' bit... It's been too long since I colored teh big guy.....><
Other than that oversight, coloring this one was a quick business. I don't know when, but I"ve a few ideas on how to continue this bit. Either way, it's fun to get back to drawing Hippo and Carla, again.
King Hippo belongs to Nintendo,
Carla belongs to
and I belong to myself.
