Little Croc by Camelid Little Croc by Camelid
You may remember this little fellow from way back - he's received yet another makeover for the cover of his dummy book, which (fingers crossed) will soon be finished and ready to make its rounds to agents.

I enjoyed designing this for a square format - I think it forced me into a more dynamic pose - and I never tire of painting happy crocs (and I hope I never shall)

I'll likely be posting more of the sketches and developments for the story on my blog and tumblr, if you're interested in seeing more of this guy:

What a charming smile! I wish I could swoosh through the water like him, he seems to really enjoy himself.

I love this design and the water splashing around. I wish you the best with your book and I would love to get my hands on it when it's done.

Hey, I'm drawing baby crocodiles too at the moment for a school work. Nice to see how you're doing it :D 
I don't remember this fellow though, don't watch you long enough I think, but he sure looks nice!

Thank you! It was a lot of fun to do. I've found lately that I really enjoy doing cross-sections of both water and dirt - so expect more of that in the future! X3
