First strip after Thanksgiving. That means that Ayuri is now two years old!
Hey, an Ayuri strip falls on my birthday this year!
In honor of Ayuri turning 2, I figured I'd do a quick comparison of how the character designs and art style have changed.
As a bonus, I've included some concept art I did the first time I was going to start up the comic, in 2014. I'm not sure Nal and Nilje really count as the same character, but whatever. They're both the Ayuri's mechanic.
I had planned this as a record player, but I felt that was a bit too familiar. I mean, it’s still pretty much a record player, but at least they’re shaped a little different.
“Hey, I can get two strips done on Labor Day! Oh, never mind. It’s the one with the new planet and marketplace.”
