It's been years since I drew one of these, but he's been sitting in a notebook for about that long.
The colouring style has obviously changed a bit since the last, too.
But these are still my babies. I find that they have a special connection for me. Whether it be because they are entirely mine, from the style to the idea, or just because each one has it's own unique chararistics and personality.
It might also be because I use them as an expression of what I feel and think.
