Care Bear Cousin Leptictidium
Squeek?  Squeek?!  Squeek!
+3
A redesigned Love-a-Lot Bear admires a distinctively-shaped cloud.

Considering mousicorns, pegamousies, and a Crystalmouse have all appeared on my gallery, it wouldn't be surprising if you thought the Mousies were inspired by ponies, but that's not the full story.  There also have been influences from other sources like the Care Bears.  This fixed-up sketch can be considered a precursor to the My Little Mousie series, an experimentation with a more shapely character and the positioning of the tummy symbol.

She's actually cute, very much so.

Thanks.  That's what I wanted since cute is part of the essence of the characters.

You see, I never liked Care Bears. They're much too cutsy-poo for my taste, too child-ish. This image isn't cutsy, just really cute.

Could be the presentation, I suppose.  The original Care Bears were, like many '80s cartoons (and beyond), meant to be exactly as you described them, cutesy-poo.  Producers think Viewers are Morons, especially when the viewers are children, so it's to be expected.  Plus, they were originally used on greetings cards, so cutesy-poo was almost a prerequisite.

On the other hand, I don't have to go that route.  I don't have to take the naughty, adult route either. :p

I think I see the difference now, upon comparing my picture with the official pictures.  The official stuff overdoes the cute factor whereas mine has less chub, is not as childishly small, and isn't trying to rot out our teeth with a saccharine pose. :o  Not bad for a redesign meant to see how a tummy symbol would look on a more human-proportioned Care Bear. :p

Not bad at all. :)
