well, Maldar makes his new official appearance on the webcomic. I have to say of all the redrawn characters I've done so far, I'm particularly pleased with his progression. The more complex robes, as well as the better defined staff, definitely set him apart from the average magic user. Also his hair design, now inked, looks so much better. I also like how his expression comes off as now being a very capable wizard instead of a simple nerd. Sure, the beard stubble is still there to show his youth, but now he definitely looks more like someone capable of summoning demons, creating bizarre experiments, and obliterating entire merchant caravans. Heh, the way I'm beginning to feel, Maldar's design is one of the only things to assure me of late that I have gotten better since the old days.
The only other character I think I've really noticeably improved upon is CFT. Despite the fact that he's not much more of a furball, I think I've added a huge amount of depth to his expressions, and oddly enough, I did it by removing the pupils from the eyes. I figured pupils make him look too much like a creature that is more rational and can be reasoned with and less like the true demon he actually is. I also think I somehow managed to make him look more cute.
