So anyway here is my attempt.
I decided to use a geo for Danger Mouse head, it held together well.
I did start off with distorted 160 inside a 5 inch pink round for the ears
but they were not round enough so changed to just 5 inch rounds.

Penfolds head was more fiddly especially his glasses.
I think he would look better if I distorted the round as he has big cheeks.

My attempt at Danger Mouse.

As the challenge was just Danger Mouse I was not going to make Penfold.
But then Danielle did and she inspired me to have a go.
So here we are,

I then tried for a longer thinner mouth look.
I also added smaller glasses.

I made Danger Mouse again with 646 for the body and some variations.

Challenge 14

This was my turn to decide.
It was tricky but I went with Wizard as when we googled not many showed up.
The one that did that was the starting point I'm unable to find at the moment.

Not a good start, it was in a collage of pictures.

Panic over...…………………..found it.
It was made by Juan Gonzales.

This was my starting point although Danielle had not
seen the picture before she made her design.

I liked the choice of Wizard and just started playing with balloons with no particular set plan in head.
It all started coming together and looking very cartoony.
I used a heart with raisins for his beard. The body is quite simple but works and looks best from the front.

This was my first attempt and then changed the cloak a little,
bigger nose and went to an all black hat.

I then supersized and tried a variation.
Was not too keen on the bubbles for hair under brim of hat.

I tried some variations on eyebrows instead of hair under brim of hat.
Not sure I was keen on any though.
The ends of balloon got hidden up on last picture.

I also changed the hat but think I prefer the original made with a heart.
It was taken a few days later as you can see the matt look on the black balloons.
