Alex and Cruz Concept sketch 3

Here are the redesigns that we will be using starting February 1. This image will be painted in the future. We are taking a toon route because it is more expressive and easier to draw. I haven’t decided if we will make 3d versions of these characters.  I have finished concept art for the all the main characters in the story segments. The gag segments will continue and will be uploaded every sun-mon. The story segments will be uploaded on Wednesdays and eventually Fridays (We are starting small to get used to the process). It will be easy to tell which comics are the gag segments because Alex and Cruz will be animals. I will upload images of the story characters.

Alex 3d Model WIP

The new 3d model of Alex . Still a WIP, but good enough to start doing tests and comics with. He is closer to the original design I did over a year ago http://maugryph.com/2013/02/18/dean-the-dragon-finished-3d-model-scene-lighting-and-animation-test/. I returned his skin color to a yellowish orange, and added the red fills that I was to lazy to do with the last model. I shortened his snout to make his expressions easier to read. I did a short talking animation test. I will upload that shortly.  Cruz is also ready, I will upload screenshots of the new model as well.

A Temporary Illusion of Power

The Power of Flight

Earlier, Cruz and I talked about what it would be like a bird flying in the sky, and if we could become a bird would we do so? (very deep philosophical stuff). I personally would not give up my hands for wings, nor give up my highly flexible mouth for a beak. And lets not even talk about the gizzards.

Duty is Calling

I miss the Barnes and Noble in my small town that was closed due to ‘lack of interest’. Although I  commonly read books on my iPad, its just not the same as having a physical copy in your hands. It feels strangely ‘fake’ using tablets and book readers . Like I’m not really reading. My friend Cruz dislikes me using the ‘B’ word in his presence, the word ‘book’. But then he reads graphic novels…  Hippo-crate (the question is how do they fit the hippo in the crate :P) – Alex the Dragon

Dressed to Impress

dragon cheetah hooters twisted kilt comic parody antoryI am reworking some of the characters to make them easier to draw repetitively. Alex  and Cruz have been redesigned but still look relatively the same. We are going to use both the regular animals and the humanoid ones depending on the joke and situation. Still working on the 3d models..

Make no misnake about it.

Speaking of zoo’s I go there often to doodle animals. Unlike my partner in crime, I do not eat the animals while I’m there.

Note to self: Change ‘must of’ to ‘must have’. this is not a redneck comic.
