Sneak preview... and a request for help.

Working full time as a teacher takes up a lot of my time. I love my job working with children. It just seems as though I spend a lot of time planning for school lessons, activities, and grading (the end of the quarter is quickly approaching). So, when I can work on bears it just seems to take a long time. I embroider a nose one night, then sew footpads another, and eventually it all comes together. Well, I've been working on this guy for over a week now and he's almost complete. I'm really liking how he has turned out, so I wanted to share with you his face. I'm hoping that tomorrow night I will be able to put him together. He still has some finishing touches left, such as soft-sculpting claws/toes on his paws and feet and shading with the airbrush. I'll post the finished product as soon as he's ready! In the mean time, I could use some help in naming him. Do you have any suggestions?

Have a happy week!

No name, but he is adorable. I love his thick wavy fur.

Thanks Joanne!
I believe his fur is a Belgian plush. It's hard to get a hold of, but worth it if you can. I bought this particular piece off of another artist back in November :)
