This monkey is definitely a step backward from Monkey 1.0. Some of its problems may be due to the fabric choices, but there are structural issues as well. For the eyes, I used a black on white polka dot which changed the expression from mean to caffeinated. I will be going back to the drawing board.
Here are the monkeys side by side. I thought I would give the monkey better legs, but the new monkey just looks like a girl monkey in an old timey dress. On the positive side, new monkey makes me like the first monkey a lot more.
