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
While the character models are still WIP, they are looking better. Started working on the UVs . Made Cruz skinnier as the real life Cruz has lost allot of weight. Made Alex’s model skinnier as well because I haven’t gained any weight 😛 For every comic Cruz and I get together and work on one or two comics a week. Cruz was distracted by Animanics and wasn’t much help… I can’t blame him BUT I AM GOING TO ANYWAY! RAWR! Thanks Cruz 😛

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.
