Abbots creation started with a much more realistic version of him. I was going down the wrong path face-wise because I knew he had to be something much more simplistic. (Being too realistic with his features would only limit me.)
I love taking inspo from animals sometimes. I have a huge love for hyenas so I actually took inspiration from them for Abbot. (his dark and light spiky hair, snout-like face, and black bagged eyes) but all in all I think he turned out resembling a monkey a bit? LOL OOPS.
Anyway sorry for being a bit vague but thanks a bunch anon for liking both my art and characters! ♥
