Guess the 2nd main character

Postby lankykong422 » Sun Mar 29, 2015 2:56 am

This is a thread to speculate on what animal the 2nd main character will be. We already know that one of the main characters will be some kind of lizard/chameleon. The 2nd animal looks like an owl to me. If you look at the silhouette--the 2nd animal clearly looks like some kind of bird but the head appears rounder than most and the eyes are spaced fairly far apart.

Here is a link the picture of the silhouettes to help speculation.

It looks like it's halfway between an owl and a penguin.

The part that looks like a beak belongs to the lizard character. His real beak is covering his left eye.

Anybody feel like reposting it with the gamma all the way up?

The lizard-looking thing reminds me a bit of an axolotl. I have no idea what those red protrusions could be in the animal kingdom, other than this...

I singled him out so it's easier to focus.

I can only conclude that between the release of the first and second picture, they changed the character's pupils. They are bigger now.

I think a tropical bird makes sense, given the two landscape pics we've gotten so far.

But I don't think it's a toucan, like a popular fanart is suggesting, as I think a beak that large would be... fairly obvious, even right now, and unless they're intentional taking the beak out, it might just be a different bird.

Some birds I like for Lele so far have been

OR
http://www.artfullbirds.com/Tropical%20Mockingbird.jpg = Tropical Mockingbird!

They're both South/Central American species. And I also have this feeling that if the Lizard is really colorful and color-changing that the bird actually might be less ostentatious, to not be obvious when he changes, or effectively the exact opposite of Banjo (fairly dull) and Kazooie (SO BRIGHT).

The circled part looks like the beak to me. This pic makes it look like a . But that may just be me.

I guess, I personally just don't see it. I can't see much in that image, actually, like.. eyes, sure, but it's kinda hard to find any discernible features for me.

I'm fine with whatever. IF the first uses stealth, the other should compliment it.

Since the name "Ukulele" is a Hawaiian musical instrument. The second main character will probably be a Hawaiian bird like this one:
