Apologies in advanced to Napoleon Bonaparte and Napoleon Dynamite.  Fun fact: Napoleon Bonaparte was 5’7″ tall. So much for historical accuracy.

Dark Souls II and Pizza

dark souls dragon covenant angry pvp dragon madAfter 3 attempts to scare me, he finally succeed. But I was playing Dark Souls II, so it doesn’t count :P.  Speaking about DkS2 it feels different then the first game. I’m addicted to it but I’m not sure it lives up to the last game. We will see.  My apologies for putting a gamer on a couch. I said I would never do that… I lied. I have followed a Penny Arcade covenant. FORGIVE ME. – Alex the dragon

Hats off to this comic..

comic-17The irony of this comic is…. how would a dragon be able to wear a hat?
In our own glorious stupidity.. we forgot to do a comic last week. So with my brilliant wisdom (I was hit in the head) we decided to do four comics ahead of time and then the next week we will do four more, rinse and repeat. -Alex the dragon

Alex and Cruz as Creatures

This is a mixed media digital painting that combines 2d painting with 3d modeling. The models themselves are a WIP and might look totally different by the time I finish them.  The main focus of this test was to experiment with different texture patterns. The model currently have no texture maps on them. It’s fun to combine both of my passions together like this.

Our new direction is to have Alex and Cruz and everybody else as ‘normal’ animals. But they would still be living in a urban environment and trying to ‘act’ like humans.

Key Concept Art Idea – Dean Alex Sheppard

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.
