Diary! I’m the worst.

I said I would update like a week ago. What happened?! Well, I decided I wanted to actually have some images for the changes I plan to do for Fuzzy Outlaws.

But this last week my son has been teething. Which apparently means crying and eating a lot. And it also means not sleeping until past 1am every night. Anyway, here’s the plan:

No Shading! Or Highlights!

Basically it takes too long to draw each comic because of the full colours and shadings and junk that I try to put in. So I’m going to simplify it. I’m not happy about it though so the second part of my plan is:

New Backgrounds!

And that’s what I’ve been working on. Behold:

betacarotene1

This is the new living room of the Beta-Carotene. The couch/tv/lamp are too small so I have to fix that but this is where I’m going with it. I started adding little flourishes like the carrot shaped lamp there. I’m going to draw up each room from at least 2 sides so that I can just bring them into the comic when I need them.

Obviously this is taking waaay longer than I thought it would. (I seriously over estimate my abilities some days). So I’m going to start drawing comics again with the backgrounds I’ve made in the past and just make them work. Back to twice a week if I can. Also future characters will be much simpler than Space Beard. Just too much going on with that guy.

Love Michael
