Transformed...

Seems with all of this cold and snow, my latest creature has been influenced...
I was working on a baboon, native to a more warmer climate when it started to snow...
He was transformed...
Meet 'Yuki'.
Japanese for...you guessed it...Snow!
Have you ever seen these creatures in action?
They are easy to attribute to anthropomorphism!
Just have a look at this little BBC video...

Your little guy is so cute. I look forward to seeing what each new creation is going to be. This one has such character. He's charming!

The video is beautiful. I'm kind of afraid of monkeys but this is almost something I would like to go and see. I could watch them for hours.
