Simon: So this is it – we made it to one hundred uploads. I wanna thank all of you reading this, ’cause that probably means you also read our comics. Hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy drawing them.
I’ve been having a lot of computer-related problems lately, but as soon as I get it fixed, I’m gonna’ do a ‘Between Dogs’-theme week, to make up for all the uploads I’ve missed.
We are celebrating this anniversary with a new shirt on out merchandise-site. Roland did me the favour of fixing that, ’cause I’ve got no idea how that works… Anyways I guess I’ll dedicate the shirt design to a friend of mine, Emma Cream, who told me to do a “shirt-design with an elephant”… Nope, I didn’t get any other info than that… However, I came up with this design, which I really like – I’m definitely ordering one for myself.
You might also already have noticed our new link for the merchandise-site. We haven’t uploadet anything to our youtube-channel so far, so the merch-link has replaced our youtube-link in the bar on the left (try clicking it!)
Simon: We do have a couble of actual comics lined up, but I felt I had to get this outta the way first. You see drawing these guys we’re always kind of a bore, but I do love them as characters, so of course they derve a re-design.
Robot Guys is almost unaltered. The shape of his feet is a little bit different. Apart that I just concentrated a bit more on getting the dimension of his body and head right – a thing I rarely paid attention to in the past (but of course something I’ll do in the future). His eyes are also a bit different: I made the upper lines of his eyes a bit longer than the widths of the eyes. This means I can draw him looking in different directions without moving his head – just look how slick he is on this picture!
Doctor Doom wearing kitchen gloves? Uhm… yes – they were on sale… When re-designing Doctor Doom, I focused on making him look more dynamic. His body is also bigger than it used to and his hairstyle is a little bit different… But as he is the one I altered the most, I think the results are pretty easy to spot, so I’m not gonna explain it more thoroughly than this…

Simon: Hey, regular people (or semi-regular people)! In an earlier upload, I said that I was going to slightly alter the designs of some of the Villain People and that I would present these in a comic containing all five members. However I figured it would be easier to just show you. I’ve made the biggest changes on Dr. Doom, but still – it’s not that different from before…
But anyways: I decided to show you Captain Cruel first. The biggest change I’ve made was in my head: You see, I’ve always imagined that his suit was purple, but when I drew him in this pose I somehow realized that green would suit him much better… At least that’s what I think… But this is the first time, you see him in colour so uhm… yeah… Besides from changing the colours I made him look a bit more “dynamic”… Mainly by deleting some of the less important details.
