Based on a inside joke I have with a few buddys on a forum. Its supposed to be me as a rayquaza. Like I said it doesn’t make sense but it would take too long to explain the joke. Even the title itself is a joke.I will draw a real rayquaza sometime next week. I sketched and somewhat painted this on my android tablet using Sketchbook Pro.
Here’s a character that has been haunting my comics for years. Started out as a parody of Dr. Mario, but then evolved into something more sinister. Although having ‘Goode’ in his name he is a very lousy doctor, in fact his ineptness causes more harm then good. I enjoyed drawing his bizarre antics in the past but now he needed a update baddly. I wanted to see if I could improve the character after about 8 months of not drawing him to see if I could improve his design. Here is what Alex looked like 8 months ago: http://superdefective.wordpress.com/2012/06/25/iface/. Let me know what you think.
Update: Modified the avatar to appear more ‘dragony’ and less anthropomorphic. Didn’t feel like double posting.
Yesterday, I decided to create a new avatar image. The character I often use as a avatar is Dean the Dragon, a original character of mine. Originally it was just going to be a simple cartoonly color drawing. But when I finished it, I felt that I returned to my old ways and bad habits of using symbols instead of using form and value. So i converted it to a value painting. A color value painting. Granted it could be popped out more and I missed a highlight on the ear, but it came out rather well for the amount of time I spent on him and since it wont be bigger then 128 pixels on most sites, it should work well.
