Setback

Posted on: May 10th, 2012

Behold! The new Ben! After the previous comic I received some feedback about the looks of Ben and it just made me see that I was heading totally in the wrong direction with him. So last night I spend a couple of hours trying to redefine his looks, making it more fit the rest of the characters... and make him to feel more fun to draw. And I think I found a way... or at least a starting point. Knowing myself, he will probably be redefined and evolve every time I draw him.

But again... let me know what you guys think. Love to hear your thoughts about him... or about whatever is on your mind ^^

    Like how the looks of characters evolve over time and I like what you said about allowing them to continue to evolve. Nice!

      Guess that’s part of creating a webcomic and learning to create a webcomic at the same time ^^
      You always want to make the characters feel the same, but I noticed I just need to experiment and make room for evolving them slowly (and sometimes quicker)

    I really dig your art style, but more importantly, I dig the way you are willing to experiment and hone in on the look you want. Yes, I do carry a shovel wherever I go. Dig dig dig.

      Thanks mate. I’m really pleased with how Ben turned out myself as well. Really fits the other characters better and I had more fun drawing him too.

    I really like his new and improved look. I agree that he now better fits in with the rest again. Great job Skar, just keep on doing your thing, experiment away 🙂

      I don’t think I can stop experimenting, but thanks for the support. It’s always nice to see people welcoming the experimentations instead of being repelled by it.
