Red-Nosed Dragons

This is for a New Yorker cosmetics company and their new product for kids. I'll tell what it is, later. For now, I hope that those two green boys will do well at the trade show.


  1. Very nice once again! Love the green underwear :)

  2. Fantastic! Love the difference in proportions between the two greenies. How do color the actual linework?

  3. It must have taken a long time to do the plumage. Great stuff as always!

  4. Turbogeil! These two folks are just marvellous.

    Dragonskin? Something aganst acne?

    You can recognize that it's for a cosmetics company because of the yellow finger nails. Very clever ...

  5. It was a lot of fun to do these dragons. Thank you!

    Anonymous, I'm colouring the linework on a transparent layer, above the background.

    Richard1, Richard2, Tobias, Oliver :) Thanks!!

    BTW Oliver, you will never guess what it is :)

  6. WOW! Amazing design and execution, Mr. Satzinger.

  7. Really amazing character designs, and color palettes as well!!, love your work, so does my little sons, they always ask me to take a look and see if there are some new ducks or "monsters".
    By the way, if you don't matter, I'll link you in my blog.

  8. Cool work, very nice use of color!

  9. Cute little green shorts! Dressed superior to Goleo, the German mascot 2006!
