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.
Sleep is good...
