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.

This is interesting. :)

I do like it better when crocodiles & alligators have needle-like claws rather than elephant or dinosaur-like.

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.

Thanks. I'm so happy to get so much love for this modification.

If I could direct and was good with money I'd make a remake and put this Gator in.

I agree, he looks better with the big lips. Not to mention your version looks much more menacing.

Ca'mon what's wrong with him looking more menacing? Where all grown ups here.

I just think the big lips look disgusting. Kinda like animal characters with human faces (you know dog with human head).

Well like I explained this gator wouldn't do the musical number. I explained that in the comments.

Try imagining him doing a rap version then and it might match.
