Chinchin - Chacha and Tintin mashup

A long time I had this idea - to add Chacha Chaudhary in all Tintin covers. So I made some roughs

-
Obviously my skills were not that great back then, So I sat on this and never completed it. Until one day when someone met me after reading my political comics on Newslaundry.com.

This guy mentioned going through my blog and said that he liked this idea, and would love to have a print of the finished piece for his office. Then  I said chalo, complete karte hain.

In the next two weeks I finished them, but with an interesting twist - rather than just placing Chacha plainly in the posters I adapted the comics to an Indian context - thinking of new storylines. Most of these use real instances, stories and events. If you can't tell at the first look, search and you will find more.

The art of Tintin is heavily detailed and adapting these taught me one or two about how to use black objects and shine.

Enjoy.

Hi Sumit, does putting it as T-Shirt and poster art will be copyright infringing. I see many Indian brands with Batman Superman art but no logo of DC comics on them. So, clearly they have not taken permission

Hi, I'd really love the last panel on a t-shirt.

Yes Pratik, it will be that's why I'm refraining from doing anything like that!

Hey Pulkit, I would like that also, but sadly its not my character :-)

Hi Sumit,
Would it be ok if I used one of these pics in an online quiz? Due credit would be given of course.
