Dusting Off Some Goodies...

Dust Bunny is an interesting mix of old and new.

About half of the characters (many that are being kept under the radar until the book is released) were actually created back in 2006. I found these tonight, while sifting through some old art files. I thought the evolution of the characters was fun. But even more interesting than that, there's a clear consistency in some of the design choices from 6 years ago up to present day. A few variables were abandoned (the story's concept was much different 6 years ago, and laced with slapstick humor) but by and large, you can see a considerable amount of the original idea preserved.

There will be a little more exposition to their origins in the Dust Bunny process book, which will be released along with the graphic novel. There will even be a couple of original comic pages from 2006. For now, however, I thought this was a nifty little morsel of Basement City history!

Be on the lookout next week for a 3-part process video, which will follow the creation of a page from start to finish! In the meantime, if you'd like to keep up with the soft updates, you can join the Facebook page here!
