Character design for an evil woman who wants to eat a child. The anthropomorphic character is based upon a hippopotamus. The pretty lace apron and dainty bonnet adds detail and thus creates an interesting character. Her feminine exquisite, charming style of dress is in direct contrast to her horrid personality; an ironic twist. The hanging, pulled teeth subtly hint at her cruel intentions. Overall, I feel the teeth and expression need to be toned done for the child target audience. Conveying a smiling hippo happily eating the paper chain will make for a more sophisticated, suitable image than an angry ravenous hippo.
