A little over a week ago I watched a two hour learning channel show about draining the oceans and showing what is beneath on the ocean floor. It is a cool show and there was a lot of digital effects and what not. In that show, they showed an underwater submerable device, made from Germany, that uses sonar to see what the ocean floor looks like in high detail. It was called the Fledermaus and it is German for bat. It was called the Fledermaus due to the decive using sonar like a bat, and because it was cute like small compared to most submersable devices.
Since then, I thought the word fledermaus was cute, cool and makes for a good name of a bat character. I then proceeded to draw the picture above, which took about 3 hours to make from start to finish over the last weekend. The background was a quick addition so that I may even put the name down, making it look like a chalkboard.
Doctor Valen Fledermaus is a new character I made up. He is a physics professor from Germany, and is young and brilliant. I only realized later that the shirt color was supposed to go over the suit jacket and not underneath it. That would be the only mistake, and it still looks good anyhow. For the face, I attempted to give him a handsome, bishie style look and expression, in bat form that is to say. I think I did an excellent job on the result for it does, to me at least, have that bishie look to him. The fact that I have him reading a book while casually having his hand to his side adds to his personality of educated, determinedness and professor like authority. ^\/^.
The name Fledermaus is, of course, from the education show I say. The first name, Valen, is short for Valentine which is the holiday that occured recently. I could of said Valentine for his first name, however that is too obvious, lacks creativy and sounds more like a surname than a first name. LOL. ^\/^.
The words written down happens to be my actual handwritting. No using my handwritting for nefarious reasons bitte (German for 'please'). LOL. ^\/^.
