As I was doing the Catbeard origin minicomic, I knew that I would eventually redraw the first appearance of Catbeard – that of him being a jerk to a poor defenseless kitty. I thought it might be interesting for you folks to see how much my style has evolved since I started doing the comic. The cat looks more “real”, for lack of a better term, and Catbeard himself is much less noodle-y. His face is less round, too. And I had to force myself not to draw his hair in a swoopy part. Not to mention I draw his beard more fully now. His original beard was kinda scraggly! Always interesting to see what happens as you get more and more comfortable with a design and start allowing other influences to creep in.
See you kids Wednesday!
