More Rock Dog

The project was an adaptation of Tibetan Rock Dog, a comic-book by a chinese rock star.
The main character is a Tibetan Mastiff who is the lead singer of a rock band. That was one take on him in the previous post.
Here are a few different versions and some of the other characters.

these are awesome. lovely work.

Rune Brandt Bennicke said...

Chris - yeah, he was supposed to be a chinese crested. Like Nicholas guessed, he was the agent. They wanted something like Jeremy Piven's Ari Gold character. I liked the idea of such a strong, imposing personality in such a tiny and silly dog.

Douggie!! My poor beautiful Dog-Glass. Nobody ever answers your emails, eh? You must have done something terrible in a previous life to be treated so cruelly.

Thanks!

Love those designs, a very solid and volume drawing with very graphic design, it's perfect!
It's funny the little dog has to look like Ari Gold, I always thought it would make a perfect character to animate! I love his actings, it seems Sergio Pablos animate him with all those strong key poses.

Rune Brandt Bennicke said...

Thank you Xavier!

Agreed,, but then, is there anything it wouldn't be great to have Sergio animate?

Rune!! I don't know what happened! I'm seeing your amazing Rock Dog Designs for the second time and they are more incredible than I looked first time! Magic!

Carlos Luzzi said...

Amazing, Rune. Incredible how you handled a theme that could end up boring and generic, but you make it absolutely unique, appealing and believeable. I would like to see this characters in the screen. Cheers, Best!

Puxa Rune eu tinha esquecido como isso era bom! E aquele dia da pizzaria eu fiquei tentando explicar para o amigo do Israel o por que era tão bom hehe!

I actually worked on this (the second studio to take a stab at this was Jim Henson were I was at the time) I always found these drawings to be incredibly appealing and incredibly well designed!

Daniela Fernandes said...

I have to say that I totally agree with Luzzi!!
