Los Pitufos! The Smurfs! Les Schtroumpfs!

Este dibujo me acordó de Los Pitufos, esas criaturitas hermosas que me gustaban tanto cuando era niña y que solía tatuarme en los brazos con calcomanías que venían en la leche condensada y en los helados de Cremhelado!!! Hoy me puse a jugar con Photoshop y después de colorear y colorear así sea lo último que haga... este fue el resultado :)

This drawing made early in May reminded me of The Smurfs! I was playing today with Photoshop and this is the result. I was reading a bit about these beautiful creatures that I loved so much when I was a girl, and here's an interesting fact:

The Smurfs (French: Les Schtroumpfs)
The original term and the accompanying language came during a meal Peyo was having with his colleague and friend André Franquin in which, having momentarily forgotten the word "salt", Peyo (the author of the comic strip) asked him (in French) to pass the schtroumpf. Franquin replied: "Here's the Schtroumpf — when you are done schtroumpfing, schtroumpf it back" and the two spent the rest of that weekend speaking in schtroumpf language. The name was later translated into Dutch as Smurf, which was adopted in English.
....!!! :)
