This character's name is Strawberry Bear. He is a big friendly bear from another planet: Checkerstrawbeariya. He likes to sing. He's similar to cereal cartoon characters - just like the Trix Rabbit goes crazy for Trix, or the Coo-Coo Bird is insane for Coa-Coa Puffs, Strawberry Bear goes ga-ga for Strawberries.
These screengrabs are all from my interactive website castleBERDskillz.
Look, he's singing!
Strawberry Bear even has his own 8-bit videogame!
I am planning on sharing a lot of the preliminary drawings, sketches, ideas and development of this scene and more from castleBERDskillz in the near future......
