Sketch Dump - redesign librarian cat and dragoness by davi-escorsin Sketch Dump - redesign librarian cat and dragoness by davi-escorsin
So, since I'm restarting the story, I'm redesinging the characters. These are not their final designs, but I want something close to this.

The librarian cat will be black from now on, or at leas a dark volor, and he'll be a littl more athletical.

About dragoness. I had to take her wings off because those things would not help the indoors scenes.

And I decided to make her more mammal like, And, yes, she has boobies .

YOU HAPPY NOW????

And of course the'll have real names. I just haven't thought about them yet...

Well, hope you like this!

You know, I really like these designs. Plus, they fit the characters in personality as well. I mean the Librarian cat, Alreya isn't it, is a kind of darker character, whereas the dragon does have a lighter personality.

And while I am sad to say I agree with the decision to crop the wings, you don't have to remove them completely. Giving her the ability to summon them when she needs to get some extra air or speed is cool, and adds to the mystery and mystical elements of her character.

I have a suggestion for names.

The dragon girl is Kendra, which sounds like a dragon name, and the cat is Ben, which I thought fit his job as a librarian.

Just some ideas I thought you could put to use.

Hey, man, I think you were too late. I already have a name for them both, and the idea of the wings doesn't fit the new story. BTW, he's Alexei and she's Aerys.

Well better late than never.

However you could still use my idea so you can keep her wings. I'd love to see something like that.

When will the new comic be out?

I'm not sure. I'm working on it. I want to have a certain number of pages done before I start posting them.

But the idea of the wings is off, completely. It doesn't fit in the story, and it wouldn't hel in anything.

Well...

Nope, no, not going to debate it, this is your story!

Personally I can't wait to see the new story. How many pages are you going to try and have before putting them up? And is that for some time to come up with more?

I like your characters, and I'm curious if your dragon one, Aerys I think, gets any special powers for, y'know, being a dragon. Does she?

Man, I'm gonna ruin your expectations...

The story is gonna have a more realistic approach. There's not gonna be any "magic" in it. The "dragon" species is named that way just because they resemble mythology dragons.

That doesn't ruin them...that only alters them.

I bet you have some really cool stuff planned. I'm sure it will be epic.

So why did you start this comic series? Why are you writing it?

I started making the first comic, with the "librarian cat" and the "dragoness" as a test. Once I noticed it made a relatively big success, I started developing it, and I realized I had to remake it.

Once things started to get a more serious, I remade the characters, and the whole story. In fact, I wrote a story. The first comic didn't have one.

It is true that the wings would definitely not help for indoor scenes, but I like her old design better. Also I am not the author nor artist for what will be a lovely story. I just like how you had her as your not so typical woman. Good sketches for these two!! ^w^

The dragoness look less intimidating now, and NO, she don't need boobies (except if she is from a mammal dragon race)

Man, I have so much trouble with wings too. Artistically anything with wings is a pain for so many reasons. Not only can they be hard to draw but they tend get in the way. Wan't that awesome back angle FAIL wings in the way! Anyhoo love your work!

Oh, and it seems great minds think alike! You might find these helpful. Links below:

Maybe I'm just not fussy, so I like these too. Wish she had some wings, even vestigial ones, and at least the boobs are not to the point of being tripped over. I liked the glasses on the older style dragoness, even though we should not respond completely to visual cues, the glasses did lend maturity to the character. Cat is pretty good in the update and you do cat characters so well, he could be any color.

Hmm... To be totally honest I preferred much of the old look for librarian cat, but am content with this new look for the most part. As for the dragoness... Well to be blunt I find it way to drastic. I really loved the old look for the dragon, and derived much enjoyment from the fact that, well, she actually looked like a dragon. It gave her a sort of strength and solid sense of character. It also added to the gentleness she showed, and made the romance between her and the cat more of a big deal. The relationship actually felt odd, and that's what made it special. I understand that these are your character, and I wont be one of the people who stands back and constantly yells "Yeah but it's not as good as the original!". But I must say that I will always miss those old designs...
(Also I liked the dragons better without breasts, but that's more personal preference I suppose.

I hope the designs go well in the future. I can't wait to see their finished forms.

Oh, don't worry about the old characters. They'll still be in "how to date a dragon".

To be honest I still have that feeling of "But it will never be the same!", but thanks for still providing the old characters for those of us less open minded. :) We really appreciate it.

wow nice changes! I really love how dragoness looks. Tho I still kinda prefer the old librarian cat's design. This one looks really cool but it gives much different impression than the previous one. But it's just my opinion ^^ Can't wait to see the comic again. I'm really curious about the story : D
