I had been getting ready to move for a while, waiting for the guy in the other apartment to move out. So, for some reason, once he was out I had to move out of my old place in one week >_>. I don't know if it's legal for them to tell me to do that, and I don't really care. It was just across the street and I kind of enjoy moving (it forces me to organize things). Anyway, while I was packing things up, I found these old sketches of the main characters (brace yourself) XD:
I think we've seen this design before. Ten had goggles, a lopsided bandanna and awesome poofy pants.
Luna wore a dress D:. This probably explains why the current Luna *hates* dresses XD. She also used her ribbon to tie up her hair in a way that makes no sense.
Dagger had tamer hair, just one blade, and some super cool gloves. The twin blades came later when I decided to make it a staple of her people's fighting traditions.
And Gun... was a super cool dude (with a pointy chin). Yeah... Just to poke fun at this old design, I'm totally going to give Young Gun hair like that XD. Hah, now that I think about it, New Gun stole Old Dagger's gloves! :o
I had some small bios written next to them and it surprised me how much I kept intact for the new story. One of the biggest changes that happened is they're all older now. Ten and Luna used to be fifteen and it just didn't work out chronologically, tying everything together. Also, I'd feel bad putting kids through some of the later, darker story elements XD.
Also found a couple of the old pages past the ones I've already posted:
Haha, New Seta didn't bother knocking XD
Biggest difference between my art back then and now is all the anime goop. My stuff is still highly influenced by Japanese animation, but I really cut down on all the sweatdrops, weird faces, and random chibis... because it sort of ruins everything... a lot XD.
I distinctly remember doing some pages where they find the ship and go in the water to pull it out. I'll probably post those too if I can find 'em.
Here's something I was working on as the vote incentive for page 36, but I'll have to do something different now :B. Maybe a double update if I can manage it.
This one actually shows up in this chapter :B
This one was just for fun and won't show up at all because I can't see any of the main characters changing into swimwear (or carrying it around for that matter). They'd probably just roll up their sleeves and jump in XD.
Thanks for stopping by :)
