This totally happened. I didn't have anything to clean the toilet with so I thought I'd use my laundry detergent instead. I felt a little irked when I realized the toilet smells as good as I do.
Anyhow I was playing with a bunch of stuff with this comic. First the general character style I tried a few things before sketching the comic. Which is VERY unlike me. Usually I just think up of a new style and go for it no matter what. This time I drew a few "Samples" beforehand and picked from there. When I change styles I always draw one character and then just draw the other character match. This time Dave was the guinea pig.
First go around didn't turn out so hot. I was going for a more manga dark type of look.
He ended up looking Gay and Asian... and I don't want him to look Asian.
Second go around I went to some of my past styles of drawing Dave which is more of a comic/anime look. He ended up looking really lame, kinda beefy, too big/tall of a head. and creepy cartoony.
Third attempt I loved. Eyes a bit close together but for a sketch I'm cool with it. I also stole the black vest idea from the Hookie Dookie Panic guest comic from last week. I thought it looked pretty cool.
Now it was time to finalize the Dave character and get Travis to match. Which I straight up stole Endling's Travis eyes. Well little modifications but I'm still a total hack. Which is fine. I love those eyes for Travis it just fits WAY too well.
and now I'm done with character design. Yay.
