He's just an excitable boy
He's just an excitable boy by @SkyBluePerspective

That might be a bit of an understatement. 😄 The title's from this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJefPK_UkdM

Playing around with concept for one of my characters, Danny Stone. The image on the left is how he usually presents himself to people, a smooth amiable charmer. On the right, what he gets like when he's mad. He could've actually had a promising career as a singer, given he had one of the best voices in his Catholic school choir, but 1) he's a sociopath, and 2) couldn't keep away from the gangster lifestyle. He needs some kind of gangster nickname, but I haven't decide on one for him yet.

I went with an otter because they're surprisingly aggressive animals in reality as opposed to the jolly fun-loving creatures we see in fiction, and I like playing with stereotypes like that. You see way more evil weasels, ferrets, etc, but never an otter. I remember an exchange I had with someone over on deviantART, basically just relaying the facts that otters will attack and kill dogs (and eat them) and even go after people. I got the response "Wow, you must really hate otters. :)" ??? Okay, lol. Some of these folk who stan certain kinds of animals are really something else. And just to be clear, I'm not even demonizing otters here. Like all wild animals, people need to respect and leave them alone, not treat them as uwu stuffed animals or whatever.

I'm so proud of how his unhinged pose came out. I was thinking Ratigan at the end of The Great Mouse Detective full-on feral axe-crazy. XD
