Challenge 7 is “Don’t Freeze” by Hiromi Ogata. It’s an adorable rockhopper penguin. It’s a really excellent design that’s 3D with a color change.
Rockhopper penguins have that funny hair style. Ogata’s penguin has extra-fancy hair, even for a rockhopper. Which makes me wonder if this is based off of a movie penguin. There was a run of penguin movies a few years back. This penguin has movie personality at least.
In spite of this being a very interesting and detailed design, I had trouble finding too many other designs by Hiromi Ogata.
I did find this nice Kangaroo in Tanteidan Convention Book 5. It even has a tiny kangaroo in its pouch. Mine’s still a little spread out, but it’s a really nice model.
