Menacing Mongrels #7and 8

Menacing Mongrels #7and 8

Posted by Merc on 11/18/2013
These are #7 and #8 in the series of mini full bodied characters called Menacing mongrels I've been working on for the past year. I've been so hard in at creating I've not been posting here but I plan to post them all over the next couple weeks. They stand at about 6"tall and are fully functioning. Each one is unique.
