This one is bit of a departure from my usual style, but I though it was worth a go. This started off as something completely different, but it’s finally at a point where it’s good enough to post. That, and I had an idea for an entirely unrelated design that I want to work on a lot more than I want to work on this one any more right now.
Where did this idea come from? A few days ago, I saw Cindy Suen’s “Two Dogs Found a Triangle on the Wall” gif, and I noticed the dog with the mustache. I thought it was interesting that the mustache was atop the dog’s nose, but then I thought “OMG, I SHOULD DESIGN A CHARACTER WITH A MUSTACHE ON TOP OF HIS NOSE TOO!” But when I tried and I couldn’t make it look right. So I was still thinking about mustaches, and I had the mustache from the failed face design, and I needed something else to go with it. So I sculpted a newer and slightly less derpy face, but it was still too bare and boring. So I added a hat. Then it was still boring. Then I added a monocle, and it looked a bit better. But then I added the “$” and it looked more complete. Then I had a different idea and it was time to work on that instead. The end.
