Beansprout Returns, Part 1

Continuing where the previous strip left off. Seconds later, practically.

Beansprout was introduced here. He later resurfaced here.

Drawing Notes

Evolving Beansprout was a fun challenge. The first sketches went far beyond what's shown here, to the point of becoming unrecognizable.

Eventually I reached a balance where he could still be recognized as ol' Beansprout with a bit of good will.

Then, I added a word balloon to the second panel, just to make sure.

Finally, I decided to have "Me" hold up an image of the original Beansprout in the title panel.

That's me: Mr. Self-Confidence.
