224: New Do

Strip-224.png

I like the idea of Rab Cat applying feline markers to humans, but I also admit this whole strip is largely an excuse to change Tim's hair style. He was originally a throw away character and I hadn't put a lot of love into his features. However Rab Cat needed a friend and so Tim has become my first fictional character to enter the main cast. I'm still playing around with his skin tone a bit. The original idea was to make him midnight dark, but the cross hatching just looked messy. I think this incarnation probably makes him look too light, but is at least clean. Don't get me started on what was wrong with the original hair style...
