This is the sidekick character so far. I've began the rear view, but it was incomplete, so I have cropped it out of this preview for the moment. The character is not yet complete, but this is more or less how it will appear in the end.
I keep finding myself doubting the originality of this design, and I have been making an effort to try and tone down the generic nature, but I'm still a little stumped. So, I thought this is probably a good time to ask for some feedback and suggestions for how I can push this character a little bit out of the 'animal in people clothes' spectrum.
