#3 Sammy Rooper

Sweet Sammy Rooper

Someone say twinkies?

Introducing Sammy Rooper. Sammy is named after my dog Sam who “roo’s” occasionally when he’s excited instead of barking. Kinda lame, but the character is actually modeled after a kid in my town that was a bully. After drawing a couple of iterations of him, I thought he looked better as a kinder dude. Thus naming him after my awesome furry friend.

    Sammy Rooper looks like a jolly kid. I could see his character as being the one who is bullied, thus reversing the role of the childhood bully you drew him after. I get the impression that he would be such a character that would be borderline clumsy as well, and always wanting to be a part of things, even when his mere size would be a preventative. Wanting to crawl thru windows, climb into tree houses, etc. that would be a challenge for him. Instead of being made fun of though, because of his charm and caring way others would encircle him with friendship and help him out when stuck or having difficulty climbing, thus adding to a comedic scene, but also showing how well others appreciate having him around.
