Yet again I've been designing and re-designing the overall look of Steven, the main character of my "Primates" comic. At first it was simply a matter of getting the face right. Now I've begun to reconsider the body as well.
The turnaround of Steven above is probably the most stylized and pathetic version of him I've yet drawn. I like it, but I'm not sure I want to go quite that extreme. Below is the former version, which seems a bit too bland and human looking.
I've also posted another set of alternate faces below that, so if anyone out there has any suggestions on which head/body combo works best, I'm all ears.

Well, I figured it was about time I finally posted some of my CG work on this site, though all of these scenes have been kind of put on the back burner as of late. It seems that whenever I reach a certain point in a 3-D project I always seem to wind up being enticed back to 2-D. I suppose my job is partly to blame, as I have to deal with CG problems all day. That can get a bit old after a while.
The good news though is that my 2-D work has shown vast improvement. And I'm sure I'll finish these... eventually. In the mean time, I'm pretty happy with the bug.
