Paid commission by a client from a company in UK (:shh: specific information cannot be disclosed). Originally, I was asked if the company could use my artwork for a (private) project and then I was also asked if I can add Stella the Pink Bird in here.

Since I wanted this to look the best, I decided to color the lines (to match it to my up to date style) and update Matilda the White Bird's design to match it to Rovio's latest design (Angry Birds Toons to be specific). When I drew this, the White Bird's name and gender wasn't officially confirmed, so I updated it.

If you liked the ORIGINAL version with Matilda's old design, that one can be found HERE

Edit: 4/26/12: Wow! This got shared on Rovio and Angry Birds Japan's Twitter!!!/AngryBirds/stat… :la::boogie: I had no clue until :iconnanamik: mentioned in the comment. I am so stoked and honored! :excited: I never had a Twitter account, but I made one so I could post a thank you message on their Twitter. Unfortunately, Twitter's got a text limit on their message box so I'd like to officially say it here.

Dear Rovio,

Thank you very much for sharing my picture on your Twitter page. I am stoked and honored. I would also like to thank you for making an Angry Birds game dedicated to Japan. I was really excited when it came out, and I also enjoyed playing Sakura Ninja on the Fuji TV website. Please keep making the awesome Angry Birds game, and as a fan, I would like to keep creating artwork to support it!

I would also like to say :iconthxfavplz: :iconthankscommentsignplz: to fellow deviants that :+fav:ed and commented on this. I really appreciate it guys, it means a lot to me! :blowkiss:

When the Cherry Blossoms Festival game came out on Angry Birds Seasons, I knew I had to draw a fanart dedicated to it because I was really excited that Rovio made a Japanese-themed one!


Angry Birds Hanami (Cherry Blossoms Festival). Decided to post a work before my fiancee (:iconrisingfox:) and I leave for the Japan trip this weekend. I was pretty geeked up when the Cherry Blossoms Festival one came out on Angry Birds Seasons. The one that they collaborated with Fuji TV, Sakura Ninja is so cute since the birds are dressed in traditional Japanese costumes.

April is the season of the Hanami (Cherry Blossoms Festival); my fiancee and I are going to Japan this weekend to do the official "meet the parents" thing. Unfortunately, since April is about to be over, I don't think we're gonna make it for the Hanami. Despite being Japanese, I've never been to a hanami or seen an official Japanese cherry blossoms over there since we always visited our relatives in Japan during summer times. Apparently cherry blossoms bloom pretty early over there, so by the time we get there, they must have fallen. Eh... well my dad said there's still a chance that they may be in full bloom in northern part of Japan, so we hope to see them when we go to Aomori to visit the relatives from my dad's side.

I wish they made the plushes from Sakura Ninja, but I like how this one turned out compared to the New Years pic I did back in the beginning of the year. I kinda rushed that one so that one came out kind of sloppy.

The birds are out in the cherry blossom garden having a nice spring time picnic with lots of bento and traditional Japanese confection (my personal favorite are the Blue Birds, Black Bird, and the White Bird). Yellow bird has the mini karaoke machine and is a little drunk and singing and Green Bird started chasing some cherry blossoms petals while eating (looks like he's about to sample them... well, apparently cherry blossoms are edible). Nice pig-free spring day.

Awww! It's nice to see them all looking so happy instead of angry for a change! Contented old Terence (isn't that the name of the extra-big dark-red bird? I haven't learned all the names yet :thanks:) in the background there especially makes me smile. :aww: And a very lovely picture all-around, so colorful and detailed! :clap:

Awww, thank you so much for the kind compliment and the :+fav: :D 

Yeah, I thought it might be nice and cute to let the angry birdies to be peaceful and happy once in a while.

Yep, Terence is that huge dark red bird. He's Red's older brother. :) Red Bird is Red, Yellow bird is Chuck, Blue Birds are usually called The Blues (as a trio), but their individual names are Jay, Jim, and Jake. Black Bird is Bomb, White Bird is Matilda, Orange Bird is Bubbles, Green Bird (the Boomerang Bird) is Al (I've seen Hal on other websites and some books), and finally the Pink Bird is Stellla. You can read more about them here
