JB90 vs. JB09

It's moving time again for the ole J. Brucester. Every time I go through this process, I always end up spending a couple hours going through a box with all my old drawings in it. I've had this tendency to never throw anything I've drawn away...finished, unfinished, whatever. I've got pages and pages of stuff stored up, and I always end up finding something specific that gets my attention, and makes me want to revisit it.

Today, I stumbled across this firey headed character. I originally drew him on May 28, 1990. I would have been 10 years old. I don't think I ever named this guy, but if I had, it was probably something simple and cliche like Fireball. Not all that impressed with my new take on the character--made him a bit squatier than I intended...though I blame the size of the paper for this. My plan was to try and stay as true to the original design as possible, to get the best possible contrast between my abilities as a 10 year old and my abilities as a 29 year old. I think it's safe to say...there's no real difference whatsoever. Heh.

I think I might do more of these, considering I've got oodles and oodles of characters to draw from. Lata!
