When setting out to create the look of Darble - the "adorable" member of the trio of imaginary brigands that also contains Torble and Hurble - I asked myself, "What would it look like if a Japanese ad agency had tried to create the rabbit?"

With the thought put into it by its creators, yet never seeing the light of day, the imaginary life of Darble was formed. Darble speaks in the voice of an androgynous four-year-old with buck teeth.

It could charm the oil out of a snake, but that charm is only skin deep - when it's go time, Darble uses those rabbit claws and those teeth to bring down the damage in a flurry of Creamsicle-orange pain.

All three of these characters delight me, their concepts are excellent, and I wish I could see more of them in a context that makes sense. The approach you took to creating this character served you very well; I could easily imagine Darble on a packet of sweets or another, exhorting me in enjoy in some mangled Engrish. The heartpads and combination cat/bunny tail are especially nice touches. The only real flaw, perhaps, is that it's not really clear to me if he would walk on just his "paw" or with his entire "foot". I'm imagining that despite the fact that there are no visible joints, it's simply concealed due to the cartoonish nature of the character and that he's digitigrade, with the coloration showing where the "joint" would be.

That said, I never want to be in a room alone with this thing. He's probably got all the viciousness of a Chicago mobster underneath that charming fluff.

It looks to me like the entire flat part of the foot facing the camera goes on the ground. They're sort of like Kirby's feet.
