Even though I put the idea of MINIBOSS to bed, it didn’t come without me trying to remake it. For a month or so I tried to simplify the story and make it true to itself, but alas, it all crashed down on top of itself.
But, I love the conceptual art too much to keep hidden!
Proty’s attitude was made much simpler and could fit into a few sentences instead of a few pages. I also made his colors a lot more saturated to add more of an “alien” vibe. After all, he came from space!!
His outfits changed, as well. I figured warmer colors suited his now ambitious and strong personality. Plus, those boots are fresh!
Not much changed in Humbee’s ballpark. Though I swapped his sweater for something a little more summery. He’s a little softer, a little less coordinated with plans, but still with his big heart!
Jorge’s biggest change was simply in design. I wanted his gas cloud to go back to being neat again, as it was in some of the first sketches of him. He’d also have been a bit more laid back on the attitude, though he still wants to get his job done.
The planet was also going to be a little more interesting.
While I adore the idea of this, and making the art was fun, I still don’t feel comfortable re-writing MINIBOSS. At least not for a long time. I may make some art on the side, because I still adore doodling these guys! But I’m also working very hard on another comic, which you’ll hear about soon…
….And that you’ll get to see a little bit of right now!
