Zakuro - abominable snowman

Hey, i'm new to this forum, so firstly i want to say hi to all of you!

Since i usually do different stuff (traditional media and vector illustration) and like a lighter mood i'd love to shift the perspective a little
Maybe the yeti isn't so evil or bloodthirsty, maybe it's just too furry and big.
So this one will be like a mixture of man, gorilla and rabbit.
And like rabbits it's vegetarian (though it loves icecream!)
He's even decided to keep a monster-seal pet after so many years of chilling alone on the mountains.

Here's some preliminary sketches!

Hey, the monsters are cute!
Nice image and posing, but i'd love to see them in a more dynamic background. Try shifting your vanishing point: the cave would gain with more perspective. Also try cropping the floor, it seems like you're wasting too much space.
Nice entry!

i decided to put in 2 pets inside: the firts is already there (the one that's behaving like a cat on the yeti's leg) and another will be in the foreground to give more depth to the composition
