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.

So sneaky!!

Hello everyone. We are starting to get a routine down. For now the best time to upload new comics is on Sunday. Eventually this will become a two comic, but for now one comic a week will be the norm.

Make no misnake about it.

I ate a whole snake! cheetah

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.

Just for fun, I imported my models into Daz Studio, and then combined the sub-dragon and the genesis figure into this dragon.. centaur.. thing.. But do not fret, the giant omelet will be worth it in the end. 🙂 I also used this image as a example for a book review.

Lets see, I used Carrara,Hexagon,Daz Studio, and Photoshop to make this (phew).

What’s for Dinner?

Rule one of having a dragon for a roommate. Don’t upset the dragon. As for non comic related chat,  I’ve been playing Super Hexagon. The hexagonist level is driving me crazy.  I’m also going to write a review for Spelunky soon, a rogue platformer I actually like.

Concerning Dragons and Cheese

Another fantastic restart… yay. This was a test using the 3d models I spent ages making. I now have a friend that has joined the madness of the comic. Alex was originally a dragon but I changed him to a iguana when I decided to ditch the 3d. But I spent so much time on the dragon model and everything else, I couldn’t bear to waste all my effort. So he is a dragon.. again.

When something hits the fan

iguana joke love fart joke cheetah hear
The first official comic of the ‘Alex and Cruz experience’ and it starts out with.. a fart joke. heaven help us all :P… By the way this is Alex, the sexy green dude. with the large Subtympanic Shields. The fat cheetah on my right is Cruz and is my lowly sidekick (hopefully he is too lazy to check this post)… Bahawhaahwah!
