Thought I should finally have a go at this challenge, although it was with a character I did not expect!
This character, Jon, is for my Drawing for Animation class. The assignment was to create a character based on a script (from a short story) of your choosing, and I chose this one:A young man named Jon received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.
Jon tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and everything else he could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary.
Finally Jon was fed up and yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. Jon shook the parrot and the parrot got even angrier and more rude. Jon, in desperation, threw up his hands and grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer.
For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed.
Then, suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard.
Fearing that he had hurt the parrot, Jon quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto Jon's outstretched arm and said
"I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I am sincerely remorseful for any inappropriate transgressions, and I fully intend to do everything I can do to correct my rude and unforgivable behaviour."
Jon was stunned at the bird's attitude. He was about to ask the parrot why he had made such a dramatic change in his behaviour, but the bird continued...
"May I ask what the turkey did?"
As a rather odd way of looking at things, I designed Jon to look like the rude one in this situation, 'cause I like switching up conventions like that
And if you must know, my personal favourites are a tie between "serious" and "sarcastic"
