TRDL 2013 Series, No. 35 – Penguin

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being the Penguin. I released a previous pic that was a TRDL Cryptohistorical Redesign, called King Penguin, done for a Batman Universe redesign challenge on dA. This one was technically done at the same time. I was so into the classic Penguin like 90% of the way, but always turned off by his face and rotund form. So my version I’ve given him a beakish nose and beady eyes, but not as stylized as generally seen in the comics. I’ve also given him a more hunched over posture. i wanted him to be weird and always sort of shiftily looking UP at you. Like an animal. A dapper one, mind you.
