Alex the Alligator (D19)

cartoon gator anthro oc character furry sona

I really wanted to draw one of my favorite old characters. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you have probably seen him a few times. I  went out of my comfort zone and massed (aka blocked in) the shapes without a preliminary line sketch

1+ hour of work which I am ashamed to say is the most I’ve spent on a daily so far this year. Drawn in Manga Studio as always.

I also have a girl named Alix and a dragon named Alex… I need to come up with better names for my characters. Maybe I can rename the gator Chip or something.

Also, what do you think of the redesign of the blog?

Alex 3d Model WIP 4-13-2013

Alex human too 3d model character alter ego character gator 3d character

First rough of the character Alex. The character that represents myself for web comic / animation thingy that I keep restarting. It is a project with my friend. I be doing the art and character design, he will be coloring the comics and promotion, we will both be scripting, animation, and voice acting. This time due to Carrara’s buggyness, I used just Hexagon to create the model and then imported them into DAZ Studio Pro as morphs that where applied directly to the base mesh. I created clothing and hair in Hexagon as well. The hoodie was on my dragon and I just reused it. The pants and shoes are sliced and diced from clothing that came with DAZ. They are simply placeholders until I can make my own shoes and pants or mod them into something decent.  You might be wondering, ‘wasn’t he a gator/dragon in the concept art?’ Yes there was but it doesn’t fit with what we want to do.  I feel human characters are a better fit for this project for now. I still have a dragon model I spent forever on, I will be using it for SOMETHING. I still think gators are awesome.

Update: Updated some text text that didn’t make since. I called him my alter-ego, I think that was incorrect terminology.

Time Spent: 3 hours on this model, so far.

Tools used:
Hexagon for modeling morphs(face and body) and clothing
DAZ studio for applying morphs, and posing
Photoshop painting textures for assembly of renders
