Gator merchandiser sketch

20130522-195704.jpg

More character ideas. I’ve been trying to give each character a little story so they are more interesting. This is a alligator merchandiser.

“There once was a gator merchandiser. He resets the shelves at local stores. He always got stuck with resetting the freezer sections of the store. One day he got stuck in a freezer and froze to death. The end”

Ok. So Maybe I exaggerated the freezing to death bit 🙂

Drawn on my iPad using rocreate.

Alex the Alligator Character Concept Art

Alex the alligator is a character I have designed for a comic /animation hybrid that I am working with a friend to produce. The character’s personality is based on my own. It was a interesting challenge to draw a friendly/geeky looking alligator. Funny animal alligators are usually portrayed as bullies. It’s going to be fun to bash stereotypes with this comic. Originally he was going to be a dragon but we decided for the projects to use only real animals. He has a dragon look in him still. My friend chose a cheetah for his character. A fat cheetah, that’s going to be interesting.

Update: I decided humans are better for this project at this time. He looks a lot like my dragon character Chris.

Self Portrait

Just kidding :D. The name for this painting is ‘Later Gator’. Originally this was going to be a portrait of a alligator similar to the crocodile portrait I have painted before. But after a frustrating start I  became silly and got .. carried away. That cheesy B-Movie ‘Alligator People’ was a source of inspiration. Like my vignette background?

Here is the reference I used for the alligator head. http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:*Big*_Walking_Gator_at_lake_Woodruff.jpg.  The reference for the hoodie was one of my own photos.

Vector Character in a 3D world test

vector character and 3d model combonation test with illustrator and sketchup

Just making make sure this would actually work. I created my first set for my comic in 3d, the dragon’s work area. After I created the set, I experimented with rendering to see what way would be best and tried various toon shaders , flat shading, among other things. I found the best result and it matched with the vector character, as I want it to look as seamless as possible. I’m using techniques used more by animators then cartoonist for this project. I want the comic to look very clean and professional.
