I wanted more practice with character design so I made this one off character named Heckle! I was greatly inspired by the Superb Bird-of-Paradise for it’s wildly changing appearance when performing it’s mating dance. Since they look like two different creatures, I thought it would be interesting for the personality to change along with it! His personally changes to Jyde, his more aggressive and rambunctious personality. The concept and name is a homage to Jeckle and Hyde.
I like to think he would be perfect for a children’s book about learning how to handle negative emotions that sometimes makes us feel like we’re a different person.
