Meet Melville and Frankie
These little guys will be the stars of my comic strip (name to be decided). This is still a work in progress, so the characters and strips will probably change appearance as I go along.
Melville is a ten year old mad scientist type, who likes nothing more than creating havoc from his laboratory (the families outside shed). Frankie is Melville's assistant. Formally his toy rabbit, Frankie was brought to life as one of Melville's experiments. He's a more than a bit miffed by the fact that he has a teddy bear ears instead of his own (long story, which I won't go into now), but he a good sort really, even if he does have psychopathic tendencies... :)
I've completed 2 strips so far, but these are more tester strips than anything else (which also explains the character differences) so don't take these as gospel yet...
Things I've already noticed: the lettering is horrible - future strips will be lettered in xara. Frankie's bolts need to be drawn before his hands... :)
