Introducing Boogle-Jinni

After the great success of Beegu, I was commissioned by Little My to make a 'blue Beegu'.  After checking with Alexis Deacon that other coloured Beegu-creatures could exist, I agreed that a blue alien could be made, as long as they thought of the right name for it. And thus Boogle-Jinni was born.  I'm not yet sure of the relationship to Beegu, but we can assume they are from the same planet, and I am assured that Boogle-Jinni is a boy alien.


What I'm most pleased with is that I got to have another go at that muzzle, which troubled me so much with Beegu.  I'm so pleased with Boogle-Jinni's head!


New pattern for head+muzzle below.

Being a perfectionist I wanted to undo Beegu's head and do it again in the new style, but the Bug is having none of that.  She loves her Beegu the way she is.


And Boogle-Jinni is just about as loved as any alien could be.
