I looked through my Yogi bear project and found a version that I wanted to take in another direction. The first image on the left is the base model of Yogi (at an early stage) and how he slowly changed into a new character. Still more detail to add on the face but it looks like it's getting there.
All I have to do now, is wait for inspiration to kick in and finish the rest of him. I'm not sure what kind of body to go for but that's half the fun :)
