robot and Alligator by neoyi robot and Alligator by neoyi
oh look it's this guy again whatzitface and whatzthatthing.

Originally, Marine was gonna have a pet turtle (and if you read his profile, you'll see I did write that in.) I changed it to an alligator because 1.) A short French animated film titled "In Between" about a woman overcoming shyness represented by a blue alligator inspired me to give the animal a try 2.) Because Owl City songs are the major musical influences in this story and one of the song title is "Alligator Sky" (even though it's not about the animal) and 3.) Alligators are fuck awesome.

Check out "In Between" here: [link]

The alligator is adorable, but the over all picture is faaaaaabulous! The shading is magnificient and though the background is simple does a great job of showing these two. Awesome, awesome, awesome!

As much as I like Discovery, I'm more eager for you to start a comic with Marine and his quest!

BTW Is the universe with Marine fantasy, sci-fi, or both?

More Fantasy/Urban Fantasy. With certain exception, I'm actually not a big fan of the sci-fi genre.

I believe that alligator is actually smiling! Really impressed with the coloring job, especially Marine's head.

"In between" is a fun short, showed it to my parents a few days ago. Love the lighting on his metal.

Nice. Also it kind of reminds me of a Totodile and I did see your Pokemon journal. An inspiration or just a coincidence? :>

I wrote in the picture's description where I got the idea for the alligator. It's not from Pokemon.

Awww I love the little purple alligator, he goes great with the blue of Marine cape.
I also really like the background of this pic it really gives a feel of traveling near the ocean.
Oh and what was the name of the short French animated film about the woman overcoming shyness represented by a blue alligator?

I honestly don't remember the short's title or otherwise, I would have linked it for others to see.

Also, the alligator is a girl. :D

It's hard to see, but it's actually a collar, but it's got a little jewel attached to it. Marine must make sure his pet (Amethyst is her name) looks beautiful. XD

But of course Marine got to make sure his little alligator looks her best.
