King Gator Modified by b1k King Gator Modified by b1k
Lets me music together! Well not really!

This is a picture I started in 2009 and at long last I finally got down and finished it.

I did this cause even though I really liked this film when I was 8 and still do I never liked the racially insensitive big lips on him as this was a very controversial issue since cartoons where invented (plus it looked ugly on him). Disney and Hanna Barbara are also guilty of this crime showing images of Africans with pure black skin with big lips.

So I took it upon myself to improve on that as well as modify other areas like his claws, eyes and even changing the pink feathers around his neck.

This could be a good concept for a reboot of the franchise where it wouldn’t be so childish & cheesy.

I would love King Gator to be like a cool comedic African American style Gator who would have more of an sadistic attitude & would play more in the story line. Plus he would be so girly in his persona. I know some of you thought that was hilarious when they did the whole musical number but really...that sequence was...weird and slightly embarrassing.

So I would love your feed back towards this picture and what you think.

You mean animate and do you mean animate it myself?

Also, I didn't think the design was all that offensive. If anything, it looked pretty weird, but kinda good. I don't know, he looked better before the musical number. That's all I can figure.

Maybe because he looked evil at the start and then really girly during the musical.

Yeah, that was a big issue. It was so... *shivers* But besides that, nothing wrong with the first design. Anyway, want to restart the RP?

I think my OC Cassie would LOVE to be prey to him. I am on a roll with discovering these underrated predators who have such potential, yet are barely used.

Well if they did a remake (maybe live action) they might bring him back but without the lips as censors are very sensitive toward that sort of thing.

How do you feel about role-play? I'd love to feel how a scenario with my character meeting him would be like. If you're okay with it, send a note.
