I just recently got into a Character Design class that will be taught by Stephen Silver in person! As a result I found myself playing with some of the designs of my characters. I've been trying to make Cooper look a little older, but not too much older. I found myself looking at more horned owl pictures as well as some other cartoon owls for inspiration. Here's the result. He's getting a little bit closer to the high-strung, irritable, and somewhat cocky character I pictured him as.
