Costume Changes
Posted Feb 8, 2013 - 10:29:47

One of the things I've been thinking about doing in UnCONventional is changing up some of the character's outfits. When the comic started out, it seemed obvious to make the characters appear uniform so they'd stand out. When the comic was mostly set against a white backdrop, having never changing outfits didn't seem incongruous either... but as more detail has crept in, it seems weird that they never seem to change.

While there aren't a lot of defining features on a stick figure, what I've realized is that these characters have distinct enough faces (and styles) that in the current strip I can mix things up.

What you see above is a version of Lynn I did with this in mind. I wanted to put her in warmer colors, and maybe something that would be a tad more sensible in northern Wisconsin than her previous skirt. You'll also note she has her work ID badge still on - as I plan on exploring more of the world of Eau De Puanteur, WI over the next year or two.

I had considered doing a whole spinoff about Lynn's workplace, but man... I do NOT have time for a third webcomic.

Because I like to occasionally sleep.

Well I would guess that Lynn's office would be much like your job and the Dilbert comic mixed into one. So it's be hard to pull that off considering Dilbert pretty much as the edge on modern day office work. I think it's more worthwhile to incorporate Lynn's job into UnCONventional.
Yeah... it would be very different. Scott Adams hasn't worked in an office in decades, so while Dilbert is still relatively relevant, there's a lot of material he wouldn't know to cover.

But I digress -- I don't have time to do it either way.
Well I was just saying that's what readers would see that as. They would know it's Lynn's work office but they would also see it as a Dilbert knock off.

Also considering how UnCONventional is. You make the comics loosely based off of things you experienced as a Con staffer and from attending cons. And also from stories you have heard from other friends and staffers about running a con or attending a con like the Anime Fan Zone deal.
