I can't believe I didn't get the "rainbow connection."

Considering how obsessed with Muppets I can be, I can't figure out who the groundhog (?) behind Piggy is supposed to be... Help?

ETA: Love the design though and GMV regardless!

@curli76 -

@flower753 - Since you're a muppet fan, check out 8:50 here on youtube. Saying 'hey, dont' forget about me!' - quite fittingly in this case!;)
Though I can understand not picking up on him right away - his animalness is not as clear as some of the other ones

@j5 - Thanks for trying to help earlier! How do you think the colors turned out?

I was gonna guess Scooter, but wasn't quite sure! LOL Thanks for clearing that up for me (And by the way, I would NEVER forget Scooter! He was performed by one of my favorite Muppeteers Richard Hunt!)

And BTW2, I love your Rowlf! He's so cute ;)

Colors look good. Just a little artifacting from the comp reduction, but all that means is you don't have to show a detail.

@flower 753 - hehe sure! I enjoyed rewatching parts of the movie last night as I was drawing. And that's good you wouldn't forget Scooter - I just thought it was funny since that what he said;)

Thanks on Rowlf!

@Thanksj5!

@omarfeliciano - Thanks so much! Great to hear.

Poor Gonzo, left out because he doesn't resemble anything...

I know... I thought he was a strange bird, but upon reading it turns out he is actually an extraterrestrial? His lady is in there to represent him though;)

I definitely dig the addition of Camilla! He was made into an alien in the not-so-great Muppets from Space. He was previously referred to as a "whatever" in The Great Muppet Caper, and also as a "weirdo" in Muppet Babies.

Either way I still love this design and will absolutely be buying it if it wins

I always thought he was a vulture or turkey.

In the Muppet Babies he was actually an alien from the planet crouton, put into an escape pod before the planet turned normal, then found by a bunch of chickens...

I dig the inclusion of Robin though, that made my day ^_^

would love a gonzo nose or something peaking out... "A little like a turkey"... "yeah a little, but not much."

@tjshaeffer - Glad you like the camilla addition! Haha so alien, whatever, and weirdo - you can see my confusion of how to include him!;D

@AlexIam- I definitely thought he was some kind of bird, what with the beak and the bird ladyfriend - apparently not!

@cptgone - awww well pigs are pretty cute! one more
Thanks cptgone

@eltanin - hehe hoped there would be some Robin fans:D

@thechickensaladkid - maybe next time!
