Dusty - NOT recycled from Aleu

Dusty - NOT recycled from Aleu


A proof that Dusty is not Aleu's clone



It's been said many times, but I still hear voices that Dusty is Aleu's "clone". They are completely different looking characters and now let's get this straight and and all sorted on this article.

Build:
Aleu is drawn in the same shape as Balto in Wolf Quest. She has exactly the same traits as him - fluffy chest, big paws, straight tail etc.
Dusty has a masculine and more dog-like build. She appears less fluffy, with smaller paws and curled tail.



Aleu

Aleu and Balto together. The same body type.

Colour:

Aleu's fur is soft brown with light creme underbelly. Ears are draker brown.
Dusty's coat is grey with purple tint.

Eyes and eyelids:
Aleu have big, almond-shaped eyes. Blue with dark blue iris and yellow background. Eyelids are the same colour as her undercoat.
Dusty's eyes are smaller and round shaped. Darker, purple-ish blue with black iris and white background. Eyelids are the same greyish-purple colour as her body.

Ears:
Aleu's ears are again similar to Balto's. Big and darker than rest of her body.
Dusty's ears are small and roundly shaped, the same colour as her body.

Dusty

Dusty and Aleu face comparsion.

Front legs markings:
Aleu's socks are the same as Balto's but higher. Wavy shaped.
Dusty's socks are lower and differently shaped. More regular, going up on the front.

Back legs markings:
Aleu's back legs markings are exactly the same as Balto's
Dusty's socks are full and regular, ending up on the hock. She also have unique inner leg markings, provided by many screenshots that it's not just an animation mistake.


Markings

I hope that all gave you a proof that Dusty is not just "recycled Aleu", but a completely different, unique design. The only similarity between her and Aleu are the same muzzle markings, but that does not define her as a "clone" in any way.

I personally don't believe Dusty is fat. Huskies, and some other dog breeds, have double-coats, which can make them look bigger.

But generally speaking, I think it's just the style of the artwork (keep in mind that cartoons aren't an accurate representation of anatomy). Even Mel, the terrier, has a bulky body. And it appears that, because of his nervous nature, that he doesn't eat much. There is also Kirby and Ralph, though I personally believe that they're Malamutes, which are larger than Huskies. But the Balto films do seem to have a history of dogs that look fat, so it's up do the viewer to decide.

Corndog --> Same here. The first time it even crossed my mind was when I read redwolf03's fanfic "The Right Time." (This shouldn't be a major spoiler). When it came up, I was like, "Wait, they look alike?"

When I'd watched Balto 2 and 3. I've never thought of Dusty being a clone of Aleu. I agree. They are completely different characters. I don't get what made some people think their clones.

It's like Phil Weinstein said himself,he didn't intend for Dusty,and Aleu to look,or be intentionally the same,it was purely unintentended,good article though.

I'm EXTREMELY GLAD you made this, the people who are all like: " Oh, Dusty's Aleu's clone! Just look at the fur marking's!!!!" We're becoming really ANNOYING. :/: & now that I look at Dusty, she seems sort of wierd.. :! But that's just my opinion.lol

oh yes, well said, I have never though that dusty was aleu's clone, they are very different characters. Also, look at the face build of dusty, in many ways dusty's face it also a bit more big boned, the dog herself is.

Well said, MANY kids on this site need to see this article.

But another thing, I have to believe that Dusty is also much shorter than Aleu as well.
