That looks really good. Definitely in the spirit of Florida Mobil Home Parks.
How did you mount it in the ground?

Should have cut out the space between the tail and the body. Hand lettering not great but not bad either. Better than 99% of the participants here could do.

It looks fantastic! The white that looks like it should have been cut out bothers me a little, but I probably would have left it as you did, for durability.

Please tell us how you treated the MDO (front, back & edges) before you painted it with the OneShot.
(you should go into the sign business).

He looks like he could be a friend of Yogi Bear.
Kinda my question in his clock thread also..............

Copying cartoons and school mascots is kinda forbidden in the real world, unless you have licensing to do so.

Yours is almost this exactly. Twist the tail, change the finger direction and badda bing badda boom...........

You do what ya want...... I don't realy give two sh!ts, but you are inferring it's alright to do so..... which it is clearly not.

It just kinda makes me laugh how so many try to do things on the up & up and then ya have others who say, go ahead, break the law without any any cares.

It takes literally NO talent to do what you're doing. I did that kinda stuff growing up without computers, printers and crazy machines to do the work for me. I learned the grid system and eye to hand coordination when I was 8 and 10 years old. However, now being a professional, knowing right from wrong, I don't do it. I will still doodle drawing some of my old favorite cartoons, but I don't go to the lengths of someone like you.

Have fun................:software
