Canadian artist Jessica Borutski has received mixed messages on her Looney Tunes designs.
Jessica Borutski has spent nearly two years redesigning characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd for Warner Bros.
When the company broke the news online, some angry fans lashed out by posting nasty comments aimed at Borutski ...
Borutski said she wasn't prepared for such negativity.
"My heart sank a little bit. It was hard to see such hatred," she said ...
Here's the deal, Jessica. You're in Animationfandom now. A lot of these folks specialize in hatred. Change their favorite character, direct a movie of which they don't approve (Alice, maybe?) and the long, serrated knives come out.
Get used to it.
The only sliver of encouragement I can offer is that a lot of the board artists actually working on the shows for which you redesigned Bugs, Daffy, et al think your drawings of the characters are just fine. One even showed me a clip from one of the shorts and pointed out how good Porky Pig looked.
But what do they know? They're just the people who are making the series.
