The Return Of Professor Flytrap

I'm not exactly sure where the Professor's been or from where he's returning. Actually this is the first time I've ever drawn him. The title just had a nice ring to it.

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet.
Here's the original sketch of the Professor. I decided I didn't like his ears up so high, so I moved them down where ears traditionally go. I haven't yet figured out if the bat wings are real or part of his outfit.

That's the way I usually work. I'll start doodling and a character will just sort of appear on the paper. I won't have any idea who they are or what they do, so I have to figure that out later. The name is usually the last thing I come up with. That's backwards, right? Don't most people figure out who a character is and what they do and then decide what they look like?

I don't do this very often, but I did it tonight-- I made a color study to try out colors and background ideas before I started in on the final coloring.
