This was the same year as the Link images? I'm kind of surprised. This really looks like an improvement! Then again, it still has this faded look to it. It's still worth looking at. I guess this character was one you never had appear in a cartoon.
Then again, you haven't submitted anything here that isn't sprite. Is this character supposed to be this way? Or did the accident turn him into an anthropomorphic cat? Then again, it could just be a costume he wears, like Batman. The design is just wonderful.
