Artist creates feudal Japanese Looney Tunes characters
The Looney Tunes is a true American classic, about as American as you can get. But one curious artist wondered what it would look like if Bugs Bunny and Co. were actually from somewhere completely different, like say, feudal Japan, so he decided to just draw them that way and see for himself.
Animation characters become synonymous with where they're from, and it's not that often you imagine them being from anywhere different or speaking another language. Sure, popular cartoons and animation are translated into different languages, but their settings of daily life are usually the same.
What artist D3.1415926 did was draw illustrations of a number of Looney Tunes characters as coming from feudal Japan, where the samurai used to walk around with their swords at their sides, ready to fight to the death at any time. The Japanese Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tasmanian Devil, and Marvin the Martian all look ready to go to war too, ready to cause mayhem on the streets of Edo.
