Ah yes. I remember when I changed art styles. Even named the styles to differentiate them. "Round head" and "Fuzzy cheeks" For the Old and New styles respectively. Once you break out of your first style you'll find your style evolving more. It's a bit scary but quite liberating to do so. It allows an artist to grow, improve, and eventually find a new style all his own.

Thanks and there's certainly still room for improvement. ^^; One of my friends pointed out on the drawing of the original picture (after I had already inked and colored it, of course) that Hannah's arms should actually be folding in becuase of the way she's sitting or else it looks awkward. Oops.

That certainly is an interesting wall poster, isn't it? What exactly are your plans for Ms. Death?

I'm going to resolicit the issue for a point after the Legacy of Chains three-parter. Due to some of the controversial issues of her origin, I had to work some kinks out and retool the plot a bit.

I was hoping you were going to do some retooling of the plot; Good Luck with it man!

Well, I haven't been here in a bit, so I thought I'd stop in and deliver my opinions. The new art style, while it still needs work (artists who've been in the business for years can still use work; it's an observation, not an insult) the new style is infinitely better than the old. People look more like people, and things seem more like they could be real. I applaud the improvement.

I also like that you're A) Looking at another character's personal life, maybe trying to let a bit of personality into the people of the strip, and B) Look at the impact the whole superhero deal has on the personal and social lives of your heroes.
