Another Yeti

This is a more refined take on the yeti concepts I had previously posted. It was done as a little morning warm up over a couple of days.
You may notice that a couple of months have gone by since the last post, but rest assured, when that happens, it means I'm busy on projects. So that means I should have some things to share with you soon that I'm very excited about.

You have a way of making yetis seem so...cuddly. Now I want one. A real yeti, that is. But only if he looks like this.

For the sake of wordplay I think you should retitle this post "Yet Another Yeti".

I like the face of this one more than the previous ones. Theres an shy, bashfulness to his look that gives him a lot more character.

I almost always get a Jim Henson Muppet vibe when I look at your work. Would you sight him as an influence?

Erik- I would definitely consider Jim Henson an influence. I grew up watching The Muppet Show so I'm sure it's affected my character designs to some extent. If nothing else, its given me a fondness for big noses and fluffy wisps of hair on characters' heads.

And if a yet isn't cuddly, then what good is it, really?
