Charlie Barkin Concepts by darkmane Charlie Barkin Concepts by darkmane
Full View please!!

Today I got a bit bored and decided to draw Charlie more on how I want him to look in K-9 Agency, there are subtle differences in the face, but the ears really brought out the different and more realistic look I wanted. However, there will be flashbacks in which he will be drawn more like the original too, so that way it won't alienate Bluth fans. What started as one concept became many, I really love how this came out. I want to know what you think of his tweaked design. And yes, I know I didn't do any full body shots, I got lazy, but they will come later.

Please Full View!!

Bluth made Charlie all mangy, which was great for his con personality. I love how you made Charlie more like a German Shepherd with the thicker neck and more erect ears, he'd be a great police dog. Nice work on the expressions!

Bluth made an amazing design. I wanted to use more of my own style instead of just being a copycat. And since my comic is K-P Agency and deals with detective and police work, I think this design would be perfect for Charlie, because he really will be a police dog in some of the stories. Thank you for your comment!

Cool, I like how you gave him a more realistic look but at the same time anyone can tell he's Charlie :)

Charlie was (and still is) an awesome character, I loved how he had that wise-ass personality in the frist movie. It's too bad they had to screw up his personaltiy in the second movie, though. Anyway, great skecthes! :heart:

You are right in that! Bluth had a much more mature story and characters. That's why I want to keep the personalities from the first in my fan comic. How did they go from Burt Reynolds to Charlie Sheen? Thanks for your comment!

Hey Darkmane!

I've been good, thanks for asking! Life surely has got in the way of my art recently, but hopefully, I will get back to drawing soon...

Anyways, I love this piece! You are amazing at expressions! I only wish I was half as good as you! Keep up the great work and DON'T QUIT DRAWING! =)

They are good, but to me the thing that really bring them out is the differences in the size of thier neck. The neck of Charlie was small, but, it's much more thicker on this one. I like it! To me that really makes the character, or at least, that is my opinion.

ANyway great piece, and I can't wait for the full body shot.
