Character Design doodles

Today is the fourth day of the new year 2013 and I am still blogging. Attached below are the doodles for 2 new character designs. The first one is not an alien. It is based on a friend and colleague. I was just trying to portray the state of confusion the character is going through. The second image is my attempt at a big, cuddly, cute cartoon animal. They have not been named yet. They are barely in the development stage now.
