Lunch-adores and a Nervous Goldfish

In this post, I'm wrapping up the last of my redesigns of the Breakfast Monkey characters that you've seen in the animatic. Here's my redesign of Lucha Lunche, the world-famous Mexican wrestler with a passion for grilled cheese. This new version takes Lucha in the curvy direction that I originally wanted to go with him, as opposed to the sharper Bruce Timm-like version that we used in the animatic, which I was never really happy with. AND I've added a little bonus: Lucha's ex-tag team wrestling partner, SeƱor Sloppy Moustache. For the full story on Lucha & Sloppy's partnership-turned-rivalry, and to find out where these ridiculous names came from, watch this week's YouTube video
Here's the blue line sketch and the color rough:
 And finally, as promised in my first post, here's the redesign of Tinklefish. He's just a little more stylized, not as much a drastic difference as Lucha. I wanted his head to kind of have a Krofft puppet quality, like H.R. Pufnstuf. And I got rid of his goofy buck teeth, which never made sense to me.
Again, here's the blue line sketch and the color rough:

As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts, comments, and suggestions!


  1. Tinklefish is cute, and I don't know what his character is supposed to be; but in my opinion, if you're going to have a fish, screw goldfish, it's all about the Beta! They're really really pretty and freakin' badass killers! I think you should make Tinklefish a Beta, and you can model him after my darling fishy, Killer. He's dark red and blue-violet and awesome.

  2. Haha, betas are much too agressive. TF is passive and whimpery. Hmmm...Marcee, you just gave me a GREAT idea! THANK YOU!

  3. Love, love, love Tinklefish!
