There are a few tales for how the animals of the Chinese zodiac calendar were chosen, and here I am about to make up another. So, the Jade Emperor decided to have a dumpling eating contest to see which animals were mighty enough to be in his calendar and the twelve above are the best dumpling crammers of the animal kingdom. Due to the cat's fastidious and snobbish eating habits it didn't make the cut, leading to the old saying, " You dim sum, you lose some." The End.

You have done a brilliant job of translating your superb design into the limited palette colours, Cean!! I love every beautifully illustrated, amusing detail!
Thanks for all of the great support, guys! I had a blast trying to come up with each animal's preferred Dim Sum style. I'm glad you like these dumpling gobblers.
I love it. Not only are your depictions of the animals themselves amazing, but to also incorporate such personality into each character is so enviable. The sheep makes me laugh. I think he was making more dim sum than he was eating. The tiger is so proud. The rooster is trying to hatch his? lol. And in the midst of the dumpling frenzy, the rat doesn't care. He's just minding his own business, hunkering down and eating. Love the design and your drawings.

Clever ! Your sense of humor is rivaled only by your design sense.Best of luck in the contest !
This is so amusing and looks fantastic in these colours. Their body language is so expressive - I especially like the tiger!
What a hilarious idea! Really fun :)
Wonderful! Great imagination.
hooray! Glad you got it recolored in time - so fabulous! I love them all - such great characters - the pig with his hoard, the snake opening wide, the smug tiger... very fun. And "I am about to make up another" made me giggle.
That Tiger is so great Cean! :o)
looks awesome in these colours! brilliant!!! xxx
Ha ha!! So fun :)
Brava! I'm glad you were able to re-color the dumpling-devourers in time - it would have been a loss to miss this one (especially the noble tiger... )!
