I like it a lot but something about the duck confuses me. It's either the eyes or the cannon(?) on the side.

Battle Duck is a great name.

It's a cannon. I tried to keep it at a simple form and added extra detailed lines so it wouldn't be the focus (blank space). You hit the target on my main concern so I should think about revising that part.

Is there any reason the background is white? if not you should change it, white backgrounds are not the future.

To save ink off my printer Laughing
And also cause it's different, it does have that old school 90s, made at home kind of feel. Will find recyclable paper. Sustainable design is the future!

I thought that may be the reason haha. instead of having bold full colours why don't you stripe or dot the colours like old school comics. safes ink and would be a design point?

+1 to stripes, it would push it from "amazing" to "pure win".
