Concept art: Space Dog

Concept Art

Here are a some concepts that I did as a development for my Space Dog cartoon character. The idea is to do a short story to show those cute characters interacting. I already did the first page and soon I’ll post the rest, when is finished. Here you can see the main characters (so far); Space Dog, the commander and a cosmonaut cat. Also you can see that I changed the dog original design a little. I got rid of the googles and played with the costumes. Also he doesn’t look exactly like those ilustrations for children’s books that I did. Oh well, I like to experiment with the style sometimes.

The idea behind was to show how science concepts can be presented to kids in a colorful and fun way using sci-fi and cartoon elements. Also I’m working in a few pages comic samples using the same concept and a few new characers part of this “space dog” universe. For now, hope you like the illustrations.
