Cool stuff Dirty, I like the rat guy The original idea for the series had all these other animal hybrids like rats, and bears. I ended up cutting it because it didn't really work with how the story went more Orwellian 1984-ish.
Someone commented about trying to keep the original character of the page. I'm trying to embellish the existing character and clarify the narrative are really my main goals.
Scott Mcloud has an excellent book called Making Comics, which I keep handy on my drawing table. I wish that book had existed when I did this the first time...I probably wouldn't even have to even be doing this!!
