TUFF Puppy: The Chief

This might be my favorite of my Tuff Puppy designs- the Chief- the Flea who runs TUFF (Turbo Undercover Fighting Force). I wanted Danny Devito for his voice... I pictured him with a cigar, but we couldn't do that for obvious reasons, so I gave him a churro instead. I figured it was his substitute as he struggled to give up cigars. You even still get the falling ash effect from the cinnamon-sugar.

Great work dude...I Love this guy. He's probably my favorite and he's really fun to draw (haa, unlike
Dark Laser). GREAT front view, and that's the hardest one to pull off!


Thx again for the encouragement too...!

These are fantastic, and that churro idea is perfect! Plus churros are one of the best things on the planet. So glad I found your blog :]

Thanks Kendra! (and I'm with you on the churro thing!)

I get so much spam on this blog that I've had to begin moderating comments. This comment was (as are all the spam attempts) from "anonymous", and since it didn't specifically pertain to this post, I am wary of posting it (lest it have some hidden, devious viral something-or-other).
