Today's sketch is a brainstorm on redesign thoughts for everybody's favorite gay British wolf photographer. Drezzer's look was inspired by two major things: first was a sketch of Spiked Punch done by Herbie, and second was George Harrison. And while I've always been fairly pleased with the end result, it does have a few rough spots that could stand revisiting, especially when moving to the larger canvas of the comic page.

Sketch-A-Day: Drezzer Redesign

The original idea behind the floppy ears was just a way to give him a bit of a distinctive look. This time around, I took a little inspiration from Don Karnage and just had the tips folded over, instead of the whole ear bent in half.

What do you think? :)

This says "Generic Wolf" rather than "Drezzer Wolf" to me. *shrugs*

I do not get the Michelle-Light-badge practice of breaking the line of the mouth. Is there a reason for it, other than "this is what furry art is supposed to look like"?

I always read it as "the fur obscures the mouth seam," myself, although I've seen it on non-furry things as well. I think it's just a stylistic thing to make the mouth-line less prominent, sorta like the "no mouth profile." This is actually the first time I've ever tried using it.

Well, it's hard for me to object to any design of Drezzer. :) But in truth this is a good look for him I think. It looks more mischievous and playful to me but with a serious edge. A more sophisticated edge. The ear folds add to that I think. The additional details around the edge of the 'cheeks' give him a more wolfish look too. Overall, I like this design. Very sexy.

It looks more like Drezzer than ever, to me.

It also looks perhaps a few years older and wiser, in that same subtle way that Dana's changing styles made Ozzy and Millie look like they were getting older, despite her occasional insistence that they were intended to be the same age as always.

Well it still certainly says 'Drezzer' to me :)

As for personality and the sort, look into Russell Brand, he has what I'd consider Drezzer's sort of personality and voice :P

What Russell Brand I found on YouTube was a little OTT for Drezzer (although I did like the line "I didn't expect to have to justify it to the cast of 'Cheers'!").

re: voice, I've always imagined him sounding like Tony Robinson.

I do like the revised ear folds - definitely says 'wolf' now.

Perhaps I'll start liking his character better too...

Ooooh. Slighly floppy ears! I like. Now if he'd just talk in a bad Carnage piratey accent.

Absolutely charming! I can't put my finger on it, there's just something about it, but I just love the new design :)

I like it.

Maybe its the ears, maybe it's just that grin, but I think he looks rather playful.

"Playful" is definitely a word that should be associated with Drezzer! :)

Oi! Drez's gone all Hollywood on us! Lookit that nose job! Good nose, like a fine wine!

Overall, definitely more wolf-ish. I might trim back a bit of the shag on the ear-tips, though, fuzzy, but not shaggy.

Hmm... Look how many more comments there are on the Drezzer sketches than on the Tiff sketches... Guess you know for sure now which side of the bread gets the butter, eh? @;)

Well, this is the furry fandom. ;)

Plus, Drezzer came out better than my Tiff sketches did -- and the world at large hasn't seen yours yet. ;)
