teeth and tattoos

I have been playing around with some ideas for awhile. When drawing monsters or random creatures, I find the addition of teeth cute and mischievous. I started making one monster out of felt, but he has been put on hold for now until I feel like messing with him further.
He's a happy monster ....

Then my friend had a birthday and that got me thinking about cute faces on food, and the addition of a singular tooth.

look at the cute little face
 So I am thinking about stuffing it ....all this hand sewing is wearing me out. I think my sketch's proportions are a little cuter.....oh well live and learn....yay for prototypes!

On to tattoos, I've always thought about getting one, only problem is I hate needles, and I haven't decided on design I am happy with yet. Initially I had thought one of the wallpaper people would have tattoos and started the below drawing as kind of a joke, an ode to the most popular tattoos (i.e. hearts, sparrows, and the punk star) she kind of grew on me. I'm not really completely happy with her, she still needs some tweaking. Hey one thing about getting a tattoo on your chest, it's like permanent jewelry, so it's ok if you forget to wear a necklace.
big surprise it's purple my favorite color!
and piercings are always fun too

Happy Wednesday Everyone!
