Patty cake or Beef cake...?

I was struggling with this weeks theme at The Game Challenge, until I saw this weeks inspiration at The Butterfly Effect.
The Game want "cake" inspired pieces, and all I could think of was pink cupcakes...really not my thing, but when I drew my selection of combined elements from Natasa May's list of "things to draw when bored" I had a brainwave....
that random selection was "steaming hot" + "Legendary Beast"...
I know...I'm a bad person...
but I married a Taurean...

and when I'm bored or lacking inspiration, I think of him...

He's a bit "flabbier round the middle these day's...the desk jobs will get you everytime, but he is still my sexy Legendary Beast  :D

When I don't have time for messy art, I dig out my trusty promarkers and colour.

This bad boy I drew myself, in my Tyvek and envelope junk journal :D
You still have a couple of days to join in at The Game's Patty Cake Challenge, so why not go check it out?
