    Whitechapel, I need your thoughts. My webcomic PITCH BLACK will soon hit a hundred and fifty strips. I've started thinking about the art style, and some of the readers have been understandably weirded out by the lack of mouths. So I'm trying to update the art style without losing the soul of the comic. I've made an original strip comparing the old and the new:



    And I've remade an older strip. Here's the original:



    And the remake:


    (available in larger size)

    So my question is: do you think that's an overall improvement, or is the simplistic art style vital to the comic?

    I actually sat and read all of your comics last night from end to beginning (that's right, backwards) and I can say I love the artwork the way it is. You've definitely progressed since doing it, but the "facelessness" adds a unique look that fits quite well in my opinion.

    Also, the comic is funny as hell. Thank you.

    I've been reading your comic for a long time and I dig either style. I want to see a Cap'n Hempbeard done in a realistic style.

    I'd say do the realistic ones when you have the time but go for lofi when you're pressed.

    I dunno, I think it could work either way. I do like your realistic ones, though.

    Thanks for the input. I'm going to experiment with the new style for a bit.
