Quaker Honey Puffs From Heaven

Boy could I ever go for a bowl of this stuff. Here's the latest cereal box throwback. I didn't intend it, but the bear's a bit of a design mish-mash of Sugar Bear and Yogi Bear, ain't he? Oops! That tartan pattern on his scarf is a masked off image I found on the net. Cheesy as heck, but I love it. The hardest part of this one was that old skool Quaker logo. It took forever to get it right!

Thanks Kev, doodlers.
I should probably mention that the dry cereal images are from an old sugar crisp cereal box and tinted honey yellow... I didn't make them myself. Whoever painted em back in the day deserves props though cuz they're really well done!

Great work, thanks for the break-down process. I always like to see how other artists approach things.

You are a mighty man with mighty skills and I'm mighty impressed. These cereal boxes are making my eyeballs salivate.

Which is weird.

Another beauty! To answer your question from before, I only know how to work in Illustrator. Flash is my next project.
