Character Profile: Julien Hedgehog

As part of my ongoing book progress updates, I’ll be introducing some characters from the story.

To start with, here’s a preliminary sketch and bio of Julien Hedgehog (né Edgehawk). When I first wrote him into the plot, I hadn’t intended for Julien to play a major role in the events and development of the book. However, as the chapters progressed, I found that his character had an interesting voice and even lent a certain richness to the overall theme of friendship that I wanted to convey. Hence, Julien came to be one of the book’s main characters.

Incidentally, or coincidentally, both my designer and artist chose to zoom in on Julien’s chapter in their first layout drafts and sketches, the latest of which I am sharing below.

Perhaps there is something about Julien Hedgehog.
