Looking to create a "Ninja Koala" game character for a 2D side-scrolling platform game. The character should look similar to characters such as "Mario" or "Sonic The Hedgehog". I would like the character to have elements such as:
Ninja mask (Koala ears still protruding)
Boomerang weapon (Perhaps on his back as a throwing weapon)
Didgeridoo (like bo staff of Donatello TMNT) weapon (Perhaps on his back as a sword weapon)
Human like body with Koala face / features
The character should have that classic cute and approachable style like Mario. Expressive eyes and should look happy but determined... like he has a little attitude / confidence in his skills. It would be good if could see him in a couple of poses / actions / moods such as: Happy, Angry, Sad, Attacking with boomerang / Didgeridoo.
This is title-screen / box-cover art... not in-game sprite graphics. This should be the art that sells the 'brand' of the character.
As the character is a Ninja perhaps he could be styled a little in a Japanese anime/manga way if you feel it's appropriate.
Please provide at least one full coloured/rendered image of the character so I can get an idea of finished product. However, other poses, emotions, ideas etc. can be in sketch format (just not too rough please :).
Please see attached reference graphics for super mario / sonic, etc.
