Mmm, not quite so bad as all that. I loosened up tremendously while watching Ignacio sketch a few nights ago. No stories come of it (though who knows? there's new characters in the bunch), but some fresh gags did. Thanks, dude.
Here's one final sketch at full page size, taken to color and lighting. I wonder if I would have saved myself a buttload of time by doing cleanup. Why not test that on the next one-off (someday)?
It took forever to scan these and I've still got animation to do. But, man, does it ever feel good to share.
