Thanks for that.
Looking at it, I like where you've gone a lot more.
What I preferred about the old Tibbers model:
*Teeth down not up. This might be more for the the in-game look but the overbite looked better. It's easier to believe that the teeth are going to drive down into a skull rather than an underbite.
*Shoulders and nose on the old model made him look more bear-like and most importantly, intimidating at the same time. It's her bear she's summoning, not a new-age version of the Creature from Dean Koontz "The Watchers. The new model's ears are too cute.
What I preferred about the old Annie Model:
*Simplicity on the face artwork. She looks too mature and the mouth just screams "adult" to me. She's a kid and needs to keep that. The rest of the model is amazing
*Her teddy: In the original it looked alive - one eye glowing just waiting to be summoned. It was that beautiful link between the teddy and Tibbers that brought the two together. Now it's just a generic stuffed bear with a button and bandage eye aka Hobbes or a Winnie the Pooh character. I loved the idea that the teddy was just waiting to be unleashed.
Other than that, I love the work put into this. Please talk them into a re-release of Frankentibbers - it's the only version I'm missing
