400! We've Come a Long Way~

0 Ish Good!

As we're nearing our 3rd anniversary (on April 1st!), we've approached a milestone in the process!

Today's strip is special in so many ways~ Not only does it close our our chapter with Pollo with a larger format, but also marks our #400th strip! (Well, at least in regards to how I've been numbering my strips since day one~)

Just to show just how far we've come - here's one of the very first "finished", colored illustrations I did as an Easter '06 contest promotion. I believe this was done on a laptop and BEFORE we introduced the pups into our story... o_o;

If you can believe that. XD;

Character designs have changed, coloring has become a lot more efficient, and I hope my perspective has gotten better. XD; With each passing milestone and year, I learn so much more about the process, and myself as well.

Thanks for sticking with us through it all~ :D

    400.... whoa! That is so awesome. :) Personally, I'll be happy just to reach #50! You two are definitely a big inspiration for me to get there and beyond.

    And hey, nothing wrong with a little wonky perspective. ;)

    Congrats on 400! Now all you have to do is skip comic #404 and wonder if anyone notices. Okay, no... that was a bad joke. Anyway, keep up the good work!

    Wow, congrats to both of you for such a big milestone! Hard to believe how long it's been. (Hard to believe it's been a year and a half since I last saw you!)
