Bee How-To (part two)

Here’s the other Bee’s buddy. I made this one rounder and fatter to play off the big headed skinny one.
I kept the trademark 3 teeth for both characters.

MetalPig

I designed this in early 2005 for the MetalPig show. I decided to make a 3D version and possibly make it into a toy.

Demon Sock Monkey

I was given a great idea by Willie Goldman for the Ace of Cakes book. He wanted a cake design using an Evil Sock Monkey.
They had done a really great Sock Monkey Cake but wanted something a little darker.

I think it was too dark and unfortunately wasn’t used but fortunately I have a great character design from it!
