Panda Duck From Mars

Update (DEC 04, 2007): Shane, Spike! Here you are...

Panda Duck, version 1.1 (May 2007)

I tried to enhance this kipper into a more oddish character.


Panda Duck, cast off version 1.0 (March, 2005)

I drew this smarty 2005... but we were not that happy with it for various reasons. I'll show you the "2007 version" another time.


  1. sou muito seu fã, seu trabalho é simplesmente belíssimo e seu traço ´lindoooooooooooooooo...


  2. Not happy with this? I love it! In fact, I think that a "panda duck from Mars" is my new favorite animal. This is great... I'd love to see the new one.

  3. Always outstanding. What I love even more than the characters sometimes is the poses themselves.

  4. I agree with some of the other commentors. What aren't you happy about? I think it's great! Show us the new one!

  5. Panda ducks are great, you should be happy with them Florian is a very clever idea. Maby you´ll be with version 1.2 ;)

    Also I´m with S.T. Lewis, the panda duck is my new favorite animal too.

  6. I like this second one even more. The squatter shape and the headgun rally make it sing. Nicely done.

  7. I don't know why you aren't happy with 2005 design, cuz I think is fabulous the different details you included in it.
    Myabe it just need a few more color to achieve a deeper appearance.
