Key Concept Art Idea – Dean Alex Sheppard

dragon walking pet dragon scared art how to draw

I am experimenting with different designs. In the future I might or might not redesign the 3d models. Alex and Cruz has been a project of mine for almost a year now. One thing about the designs I have been torn with is the amount of anthropomorphism I put in the animals. I been everywhere from simply animals that talk, funny animals, to ‘humanoid animals’ that are basically ‘humans’ with animal’s head and tail . Each type has pros and cons. Talking animals cannot interact with human objects too well. If I use funny animals, then people think its ‘just for children’ and I have to explain why they wear no pants. I’m using humanoid animals right now, but I feel they would be more appealing if made them more animal like. This design goes more toward the ‘funny animal’ style but a little more realistic. One thing is certain I will be using the current 3d models for a while. It takes allot of time to make them.

  1. why not have them morph back and forth with the body parts as they become more or less? kinda like Calvin’s tiger Hobbes becoming more real versus doll–

  2. I like what I’ve seen~!
    If you have to explain why the animals have no pants you obviously live in America … I believe Walt Disney had the same problem with Donald Duck.
    Great Gravatar image too!
