My entry for the "Small Bigfoot" weekly challenge. My original attempt was at a handstanding adult Yeti but I couldn't breathe enough character into it, I decided to move to a fresh, smaller canvas and really work my pixels better, choosing a baby Yeti sucking his little thumb while he snoozes. This has again been reworked from scratch to the current piece, which I think is the best of all the attempts. I like the little guy so keeping working on him has been nice. Animation might come in future.

[EDIT]:Major update, I did the animation too!

I'm not totally happy with the texture but although this has been a fun piece and I've learnt a lot, I haven't the drive to retexture it all again from scratch.

Thanks Mars! Yeah I wanted it to be able to loop and thought that could be a funny way to do it :D

wow; this is a definite improvement from the previous version; I did put a vote in for the original but I think this newer version would have had been split between yours and Randommonkies for the winner for me personally. nice textures and a great shape very childlike and cute; I also like the cool palette which makes it more yeti-fied.

Edit: just noticed it basically continuously regurguitates and re-eats the food; gross but very funny xD

Hey I know the competition entry deadline has been hit, so I won't change the pic till after its all judged, but for anyone wanting to know, here is the current WIP of this, redrawn, new pose, new size, less colors needed. Critique appreciated greatly!

I think I went for cross legged mainly to use the max amount of space in my canvas, I'll try redrawing it from scratch and reuse my palette or the such. :)

the pose seems a little awkward, maybe try putting him in a fetal position rather than sitting cross-legged
