Character Design: Forming Noodle ( The cute approach)

Today has been a really enjoyable day with all First Years showing their work on their anatomy Unit. I was really surprised at how much good work was shown on screen. There are definitely a lot of strong people in the year and I am really looking forward to see what they will come up with next. The change of my work environment in the lecture theatre helped me get more stuck in to drawing. With a lot of artwork shown on screen and me drawing in peace I quickly got engaged. Oh, and by the way..I absolutely love the first years. I got to socialise with them, and it was a great break from uni work. I believe I should give myself more breaks as it helps me see my work a lot clearer.
So enough of that. This is Noodle again but in a more cute approach which I drew during the Crit. I managed to flick through some Art Books of Dragons Daniel brought with him today and got really inspired. I am not sure yet if I want to make him look cute instead of comical but I really like this version of him. He could be a mix of a dog, a cat, a mouse and a fox perhaps? He is weird, but cute.

I then tried to get his proportions right so he can be ridden by Ada. Daniel again (with his ingenious knowledge of physics! :P ) pointed me out what would work best. His sketch is the top one on the right. Thanks again Dan!
