Preliminary sketches for an otter-child character designed to fit into the Kung Fu Panda world. Here, I am playing with form and shape. The roundness of the far right sketch I enjoyed and continued to develop further.

Above, I wanted to explore the personality of my otter-child character. These sketches show how he would interact with the Kung Fu Panda world. They illustrate the challenges he faces in his everyday environment.

By now, I have developed a storyline for my character. I named him "Ono" after the frequent trouble he causes at Mr. Ping's Noodle Shop. I felt this pose captured his innocent appearance, despite his truthful name.
