"Chibi" is a Japanese word meaning "short person" or "small child".

 It also used as a term that a lot of westren artists use for drawings of estabished characters done in a "cute" style. For me chibi drawings are a way of not getting rusting if the idea pool has dried up (which these days tends to happen a lot). It also brings an interesting challenge when it comes to some characters.

For example if you get a gritty, violent, lunatic of a character like Rorschach it can be interesting to see if you can make character like that look cute. This is my attempt, which as you can see fails miserablly. So what about you people reading this? Do you like the chibi style? Do think it's pointless?
