Hi !

Look who s back into drawing!!
I ve found a company I d like to work for, so I went back to design to try to show them I could brink them fresh and stylish designs and development before sculpting them... This should be a costume in the end, so I ll have to play with propotions, add some props and stuff.. But I didn t want to think too much about that for the first draft...

The little character in the right corner is a copyright of STREET CHARACTERS. Check them out, they are doing funky stuff..:

i've grown to love this silly otter, its all in the expression, and it makes a far more interesting mascot than the typical anthropomorphic animal.

Tadaaa !!! I ve been turned down! Getting used to it now, but I have to say it s getting a little depressing now..
As for the major companies, that s nice of you, but a really tiny one would be nough for me these days..
Thanks for asking anyway!

I love this! He's not just a convincing otter, he's got character that immediately makes him ... well... "human"

Thanks !

Yeah, I like to play with those two opposites, stylised shapes and realistic texture... I d like people to think for a split second " what the hell am I looking at??"..

As it is supposed to end as a costume design, those proportions should have to change a litlle tough I m affraid!

I LOVE his smug expression and the way his paws are posed. It looks like he just ate the biggest, tastiest clam ever! ..and maybe at someone else's expense, lol!
