Librarian Cat - Alexey Vasilyev - new redesign by davi-escorsin Librarian Cat - Alexey Vasilyev - new redesign by davi-escorsin
So, this is a new concept for Alexei. Because fuck you, that's why.

JK, I only changed his legs from animal like legs to human like ones.

Hope you like it!

OK, I really like this. First of all, I think you've done a great job balancing a really cool style with a good grasp of anatomy. I like the sketchy feel to the drawings, and I think it definitely adds to the texture of them and makes him look like he is, in fact, covered in fur. I think that the shading and highlighting overall is really good, although there are a couple of inconsistencies - which kind of just add to the stylised feel anyway.

I really love his patent shoes.

I think for me the only main issue I have is a bit of a postmodernist one. This character reminds me a LOT of Blacksad. (If you haven't read the unbelievable graphic novel Blacksad ( see e.g. [link] and [link] ), then for the love of all that is sacred go buy it now and prepare to have your mind blown). Similar style, similar look (though yours has a more human face), similar colours and similar clothes. But. This isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Also, a small side issue, I think although I can appreciate the sketchy style, I think it'd be good if the colouring was in the lines (e.g. the right shoe) just to make it a bit tidier.

Other than that, this is a great piece and it's really awesome to see the progression between just the character, the character in clothes, and the character with his guns. Awesome job!

I miss the old feet :/ other than that this looks good
He's looking slightly Blacksad-ish, which is not a bad thing by any means! The human-style legs seem to work quite nicely.

Interesting! The human legs give a complete different feel to the character. He seems more respectable and well-mannered now.
