Concept Art: Teezle? by NixieSeal Concept Art: Teezle? by NixieSeal
Concept art for a currently nameless comic that may not end up getting drawn. I might change his name, but for now, this character is called "Teezle."

His anatomy is likely to change. This is not a body type I'm used to drawing and I'm not sure I could draw it consistently, in motion, conveying different attitudes.

Before anybody asks: he's a jackalope. Ya know, the spawn of a killer rabbit and a pygmy deer?

Is there anyway to keep him a jackalope? There are not nearly enough jackalope characters on the net. XD

I wonder if the name Teezle would imply him being something of a tease, or jokester (I take too much time looking into character names). He does look sort of whimsical.

I'm pretty set on him staying a jackalope, but I might give him more human-like anatomy. Especially the legs. I'm about to draw an alternative version of him, heh.

And he is a tease and trickster. ^_^ Your analysis of his name is spot-on.

Oohh... I like his design! But, sorry for sounding rude, I think his hands should be more hare-like and I honestly don't like that front tooth, but I understand what you are trying to do.
I read from a previous comment that he's a trickster?! What kind of trickster?! If his a "dark" one, I think that cape and that expression doesn't suit him, but a "good-kind-way" I think you did good, maybe the cape should change for a longer and simpler one?
Is she short or tall? IF taller, he could be a little thinner, but I like the idea of him being "short" :3 Sound more tricky and easier to do pranks...
I'm sorry for sounding so rude!

I tried hare-like hands first, actually, but they looked strange with antelope feet.

He's a protagonist trickster- companion of the main character. Not a villain, but calling him a hero would be a bit of a stretch. He's one of those characters that does the right thing for the wrong reasons.

That's not a cape- it's a small blanket tied around his shoulders. ^^;

He's actually pretty big. The size of a large human. I wanted him to look heavy but not fat.

Hmmmm.... Teezle.... I like the Jackalope aspect of the character, but the name is goofy.... doesn't fit him very well... how about Gino?

This guy is kind of a trickster. I thought Teezle fit him perfectly. I've spent the last two weeks trying to come up with a name for him.

Ok, I could see that, but I feel he should be thinner then...

When you say jackalope, I think of those shorts that used to air on America's Funniest Home Videos. "I'm as fast as fast can be; you'll never catch me~ hehehehehehehe~"
