It’s all about the casting

Here are two of the characters from a new comic strip I’m working on. This is Hal and Benilda. For the longest time, I wasn’t happy with Benilda, I was sort of writing her out of the strip after just a few episodes. There was something I just didn’t like.

I’m not going to show you the old image, but this is the new Benilda. I like her. I really did not like the old Benilda.

If she was an actress in a tv show or movie, the old Benilda would have been fired because she wasn’t right for the part. This new Benilda is just right.

It’s amazing how casting, even in comic strips, makes a big difference.

  1. I know what you mean. Sometimes I create a character and have big plans for them, and halfway through the story arc I’m thinking of ways to kill them off. Can’t wait to the story arc to end so I don’t have to draw them anymore. If they’re no fun to draw, there’s no point in drawing them I guess.
