Name: Meatballs (For now, that is)
Personality: Childish and bound by shear amount of curiosity. This little critter will aproach anything that caught its attention. Meatballs might be small and light headed but his dilligence makes up for his short commings.
Don't Give him: BEER, El Hombre.
Indeed this ... ... ... thing is actually a meatball, not a weiner, not a ice cream with a strange cone nor a peanut with some weird thing on its head.
The idea was inspired some time ago when I was preparing dinner, back then I was thinking what particular meat will look appealing as a club pet mascot since that was the whole theme. Something meaty,Then EUREKA "MEATBALLS". It even has the word MEAT on it, how convinient is that? The problem now is how to make it cute and more importantly appealing to a wide audience.
The original plan was a round like thingy lump of meat, something like a ball. Still I just felt something missing. Even though it is cute in its own way my guts tell me that this won't do. So its back to the drawing board. For Inspiration I've look for existing round characters design
to further my understanding behind the concept. Thus the idea of using two meatballs instead of one was concived. Just look at the snowman, it looks nice even though it is just two lumps of snow on top of each other.
For the design I aimed for something simple, in contrast this go against to my usual approach since I have a bad habit of over complicating things. Its a good thing that it didn't happen on this case. Basically Meatballs is composed of two meatballs with limbs and its hair is errr
we'll call it hair like thingy is made out of sauce. Whether its spicy or sweet depends on your personal taste.
And thanks to
