Business Dog Character Concepts


I really like my design for the dog and hopefully I wont have to change it when it comes to next year but if there’s a better alternative i’m willing to consider it.


Here’s my design for the owner of the dog. Originally I had considered her to be a guy but after talking to a lecturer he questioned why did it have to be a woman, so I changed it. But then after another talk he said people might get the wrong idea of a woman in the workplace having to chose between her dog and her job, but it’s too late, she’s a woman now and deadlines are soon.



The New Captain Tremaine

You may remember from my storyboard and my animatic that the main character, the pirate captain was called ‘Captain Tremaine’ and I’d designed him as a lion (because Tremaine = Tre-Mane, Lion’s have manes, haha I’m hilarious) and recently I decided to revisit the character and see if I could make him into my own character and move him away from the ‘Zoo Troop’ story (as I don’t own that).

I kept his old design and last name as they’re not really copyrighted/trademarked and decided to give him a first name, ‘Lionel’. Lionel Tremaine, I’m great at lion puns. I also decided to give him a pirate rival who I decided to make a wolf mainly because dogs and cats hate each other, so I can image wolves and lions would hate each other so much more. I also gave him a pun filled name ‘Wolfgang Peterson’. Wolfgang, like Lionel, has the animal name in it so that fits well, and the last name is Peterson after the score ‘Peter and the Wolf’. I know, I’ve very clever when it comes to naming.

Definitely going to develop Tremaine’s story a bit more in the coming weeks!
