A rather sloppy painting of my dragon character Alex. Alex is Copyrighted by me.
I took a break from my Penguin animation to animate my Zekrom Oc. I did a walk cycle for practice. It was my first walk cycle in Blender. It took more time then I thought it would .You can tell a lot about someone’s personality and mood in the way they walk.
Design wise I made ChipRom a ‘shiny’ yellow and changed the shirt to a orange color with white trim. I made this model from scratch using Blender and Sculptris. 7-10 hours of work so far.
The finished picture. It’s more cartoon then I was anticipating. This anthropomorphic dragon is named Flyer, It was the first name (if you can call it that) that popped in my head. I spent 4 hours on this, more because I was doing experiments with coloring him in Photoshop more then actual drawing time. I drew the lines in last. It’s gave the painting this interesting ‘borderlands’ style look. I’m going to try my hand at some quadruped dragons. Just to expand my horizons.
Time spend 1 hours drawing, 3 hours coloring tests in Photoshop.
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.

This was one of the concept sketches I did for my Jackal with Crossbow painting. But I liked it so much I rendered it into a more finished painting. I was going to do a full figure painting like this before I changed it more to a portrait. For some odd reason I like the sketch better then the finished painting.
