Derek character design part 1

Derek was just one of many ‘odd dogs’ I sketched, not sure why, just followed my pencil as a I drew over 100 of them. As you can see they came in all shapes and sizes.

And one of these characters happened to be Derek. He’s at the bottom right of the sketches below. Big nose, ‘tin tin’ hairline, floppy ears.
